Beautiful and affordable

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... read more

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

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

A nice and affordable place for budget travelers. Very close to the lake, option of camping or using the readily available cottages . Also has enough space for overland travelers. Food is great too.

fantastic grilled pepper steak and their swahili fish dish is amazing! scenic view of the lake is fabulous. a little rustic - so it's not a black tie place - but nice in a rough outdoorsy style.

Actually stumbled upon Fisherman's by accident after driving too far from our destination around the southern part of Lake Naivasha, and we were very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful burgers served at the large restaurant, with a most helpful staff! The use of the guest wifi was a great help! Looks like a great place to camp as right on... More

Went down to Naivasha for lunch and decided to have it at Fisherman's. It's a simple and pleasant setting. I had the Nachos, which were supposed to be a starter but the kitchen was more than happy to supersize it to a full meal portion :) My friend had the Chicken Curry with Chapati and he was pleased with his...

I together with my work colleagues had planned to go to Fishermans camp booked the bandas a week earlier but were assured availability. When we arrived at the site we were directed to TOP CAMP i think its associated camp. The bandas looked fine but the bathrooms were old and rusty. After unpacking and selecting rooms we started to play... More

Close to the lake, and boats available to tour the lake for a good price with some negotiation...with a bit of extra tip, you also get a bit of an extra experience of the ride
