“Luxurious tented camp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We stayed during Christmas while on a safari tour with JT Safaris. The layout of the camp was nice, tents were spacious, nicely decorated, our big beds were comfortable and provided with mosquito nets, and sleep quality was excellent.
Bathroom was spacious, tastefully decorated, had hot shower, toiletries smelled of flowers.
Food was delicious and restaurant area looked romantic. Service was great.
There was a swimming-pool overlooking the national park with buffalos eating behind the fence.
Electricity worked all the time and free Wi-Fi worked at the reception area. At night there was a fire around which you could relax and look at the stars.
We will strongly recommend this camp it had a taste of real African safari.

This is an unbelievable place to stay in Lake Nakuru.

It's a 3 hour drive north of Nairobi. We were greeted with hot towels and a cool drink. Our luggage was taken to our family tent, which was effectively 3 tents linked together.

They were fantastic. The bathrooms were first class with hot running water at all times. Decor was very tasteful African art and textiles...clearly a lot of thought has gone into this.

The layout of the camp is very good. Slabbed walkways join the tents with the main reception and large bar and eating area.

At night there are 2 fires...1 in the open and 1 indoors near the bar.

There is a swimming pool, jacuzzi and massage area overlooking the National Park. Buffellos come right up to the perimeter of the camp.....it is amazing having a swim with a Buffello less than 20 feet away!

Food, service, attention to detail is of the highest standard. Staff cannot do enough for you and I would strongly recommend this as the camp of choice amongst the 3 other camps in Lake Nakuru.

Our family stayed in two tents and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, just wish we could have stayed another night. The tents were spacious, clean and comfortable. We absolutely loved the food and thought it was the best we had during our whole safari. We were there on Christmas Eve night and they served a beautiful dinner, with Christmas dinner plates and everything. They also had entertainment. It was lovely. In Nakuru we saw flamingos, a lion and even the elusive black rhino.

We came to Flamingo Hill after a long drive from Nairobi and game watching in the National Park, organized by our safari company, JT Safaris. Even though there were fewer flamingos than normally because of the long rains, the wide open landscape with the lake was breathtaking. Our excellent guide Tito has an amazing ability to find animals. It was amazing to find the luxurious "camp" in the nicely landscaped "bush". Both the common spaces and tents are tastefully decorated with African art and textiles, the tent has comfortable beds, a hot shower and toilet. Food was excellent and included buffet breakfast and lunch. The dinner was served at the table with several choices of both an appetizer and a main course.

Flamingo Hill Tented Camp is an oasis of comfort within Nakuru Park. The "tents" -- really luxury rooms under canvas -- are very comfortable. Guests are greeted with warm hospitality. The food is excellent. Dinner is served from a menu rather than buffet style, and the dishes are carefully prepared with an elegant touch. We visited while on safari with JT Safaris, and the landscape and animal population was spectacular. The camp is easily accessible to good viewing areas.

This was a fun relaxing place to decompress after our work in Kenya. Located within Nakuru Park, we did the safari and saw a lot of animals. As far as safari's, it was good but the highlight was Flamingo Hill. The staff was excellent and attentive. We were so glad for the variety of food and enjoyed the staff that helped us at each meal. The hot water bottles place in our beds at evening turn down were so appreciated. Our 'tent' rooms were clean and snug and the bathroom was nice and roomy.

Room Tip: Expect to hear some outside noise since these are 'tents'. However, we slept very well and r...

The camp itself is great with very comfortable tents, good bathrooms and excellent food. Staff are very friendly cheerful and helpful with lovely singing voices. The location is great for game watching with buffalo, antelope and rhino visible from within the camp and lots of other game only a short drive away. The camp is in close proximity to the perimeter fence meaning that nights can be noisy with barking dogs and motorbikes. May be a problem if you are a light sleeper. Nice but small swimming pool well located in pretty gardens.
