Great location on Lake Naivasha.

We stopped here for lunch-they have a pizza oven. Not the best pizza but it works. Really cool restaurant and bar space. There is camping here-saw a school bus of local kids spending the night. You bring your tent to this place but I think they also have a cabin or two.

I've found this place to be really well situated. 5km from Hell's Gate, the matatus go by very often. The only thing about the location is that it seems somehow isolated from other facilities so the restaurant they have there is quite expensive. If you feel like daring, try walking 5 minutes towards town and you'll find small villages where... More

Love this restaurant, I have to eat here every time I'm in Naivasha. A really relaxed atmosphere located on the edge of Lake Naivasha. Great music, I've never had a bad meal here, the food is fab. It's wonderful to watch the Colobus monkeys, whilst taking time over lunch...

I have ranked Fisherman's as average because their campsite is fine. It used to be our go-to spot for camping on the lake. The restaurant however is quite dismal. I have eaten there twice -both very disappointing. I think what is such a let down is that the menu actually looks good -but what is brought out is a pale... More

So I would say this is by far the best place I've eaten in town!! Food is really good, service is good, and more importantly you have unobstructed views of the lake and obviously all the hippos and monkeys around!! Yea, dine while a hippo is grazing on 100 pounds of grass only 20 meters away from you, while the... More

For seasoned campers, this is a wonderful getaway located in Naivasha, slightly over an hour's drive from Nairobi. Good camping grounds with Lake Naivasha nearby. Like most getaways in Naivasha, there's the option of boat rides and one can also visit nearby Hells Gate.

If you are a budget traveller and are not looking for too much luxury and comfort, then this place offers one a no-frills package. I however did not like their rooms so I would go for camping.

The camp site is clean and large. There is enough space for group activities. You can park your car right next to your tent which is cool because you can have most of your stuff in the car. The toilets and bathrooms are clean and basic. I liked the simplicity. The restaurant is a little overprices and so are the... More

It's beautifully located on the shores of lake Naivasha and good value for money. The campsite has decent toilets and showers and plenty of space. The tents you can rent are basic, but large enough to be confortable with two people. The matresses you can rent are very thin, so you're basically sleeping on the ground. The restaurant serves decent... More

I always feel at home whenever I am at Fishermans Camp. I have camped here twice. The 1st time it was in a banda and the 2nd time we just wanted to feel the ground beneath us so we went for the tent camping. We enjoyed the stay both times and would not hesitate to do it again. It's very... More
