Dear client, Thank you for your inquiry on the nearest Picnic Spot that you can have a cook out. We are glad to inform you that there’s a very scenic picnic cook out spot at the nearby Hells-gate National Park. The park is about 15 km drive from the Lake Naivasha Sawela Lodge. At the cook out site, clients can do own cooking as they marvel at the breathtaking scenery of the park. The park is manned by armed rangers who also double up as guides hence there’s adequate security. We thank you for your enquiry and look forward to a visit and stay at Lake Naivasha Sawela Lodge. Robert Mokua Operations Manager
