We have just come back from a weekend at Baringo. This was my second trip the last time I was there was around three years ago. Although we had a great time then it was nothing compared to this trip. A lot of work has been done to upgrade the facilities at the camp and the rooms now are nothing short of luxurious. Myself, husband and 3 year old daughter were staying in a truly beautiful room with an incredible uninterrupted view of the lake and our own dip pool which our daughter loved more than the big pool which she was very happy with until she got in this pool! We went out on a boat trip and saw tons of birds (some rare I am told!) giraffes, rock hyrax - all in the space of an hour or so. On the island we also saw an enormous monitor lizard! I am also told that crocs, hippos and ostrich are regular sightings. We also enjoyed the morning wake up calls organised by the owner at a time which suited us, which came with delivery of tea and juice. The sunsets were incredible as were the sunrises which you could watch from your bed. Finally the food is delicious. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity I would highly recommend a visit.
