The camp is placed by the lake and you can get the boat from there to see the birds, hippos, and enjoy viewing the lake. The camp offers well equipped tents beautifully located in a grass covered field. The tents are huge and have a great view of the place. There wc and shower booth are very clean and well... More

Even though this wasn't a tourist spot we found this place to be quiet and great for birdwatching-in fact there were two fish eagles perched in a tree in front of our porch! The food was delicious -my husband enjoyed the grilled nile perch. The tents were spacious and clean-better than I expected.

Went in Sep 2016.Greeted by the resident waterbuck.It's near the lake,but none of the tents has what you may call a beautiful lake view, because of trees.Food was average on the first day as the place was basically empty Only two meats on offer with minimal accompaniments . The second day food was better as there were now tourists. A... More

Been there for one night, with family . I have experienced this place as one of the best in terms of location. But yes the rooms and restaurant can be made better look. Also i felt it could be made a bit more lively for some more entertainment.

Quite a decent place and kept neat and tidy.The place needs a fecelift though as it has a worn out look.Food is average. Staff is very polite and ready to help. The lake is at a walkable distance from the camp. The camp wears a deserted look after 6 pm with not much activity. Will certainly look for a better... More

I have been here about 4 times now, the camp is beautiful and clean. The staff are very warm and attentive. When a large group is on site then they have a buffet with a wide variety of food. The hot water bottle does it for me every time. Its a place i'll keep going back to anytime i'm in... More

Visited Lake Naivasha Crescent Camp with a big group of friends, most of whom have children and it was a fantastic place for the kids to safely zoom around on their bicycles on the beautiful spacious grounds. I highly recommend a boat cruise for bird and game watching and for fishing. The tents are indeed very spacious and spotlessly clean... More

Since we were traveling from Nairobi for a visit to Nakuru and Naivasha Lake, we planned to stay at this hotel for a night, although you can always do a day trip. This place is an average property. The rooms were ok, nothing great. The only good part of this place is the hotel area where the coffee tables face... More

We stayed here for one night, mainly to take a boat trip on lake Naivasha. The tents were very spacious, but a little bit outdated, especially compared to the other lodges we stayed in during our trip in Kenya. But who cares - it's only for sleeping. What I will never forget was the friendliness of the people working there.... More

“Good Lodge if you're planning a safari in the near future. You "don't go out at night..Period; it's in a game reserve and there have been sightings of lions and other animals roaming at night.”

“All the permanent tents are spread out and I cant really think of any advantage other than having to walk further to your room if its nearer the lake. Also, keeping in mind, the sides are canvas so the noisy birds are likely to wake you up early regardless of where you are.”
