Description

Only public campsite in Lake Nakuru NP. Near to a waterfall. Watch out for the baboons. Basic with some flush and some long drop toilets. Showers with warm water supposedly but we didn't try. At $30 pppn, it's stupidly expensive for what it is. Alternative special campsites are available but are $50 pppn. Only way to enjoy a full 24 hours in the park. We paid park fees if $60 pp plus K300 for the car. A beautiful park with lions and rhinos if you can stomach the price...

Latest Check-Ins

The park is really beautiful!
We saw rhinos, lions, buffalos, zebras, monkeys, pelikans, flamingos and so on. We camped at the only public campsite and paid for 24 hours+ camping+ car 133$ for two persons. It is quite expenisive but in our opinion worth it.
We were the only guest for camping so we were completly alone, a buffalo was grasing during the night around our tent.

Report Check-In

Nice setting for a Campsite next to the river and close to the waterfalls.

Note due to the recent rains entry gate on the North of the Park is not working, also the road via the falls to the campsite is closed.

Ablustuons blocks non European toilets and cold water. Camp assistant on hand to assist with Firewood and or queries.

Covid special for 2021 we paid:
USD$35 Conservation fees pppn
USD$30 Camping fee pppn
USD$3 per day for the car

Cheap for East Africa National Park.

Maximum time needed is 2 nights in the park not big enough for more time.

Campsite open and we had buffalo in the camp at night.

Report Check-In

I have been there in 1995, spent the night near the falls on my ground tent. Lions came at night and keep wandering around the camp in the darkness, I can occasionally hear only their heavy breathing when they pass near the tent, what a night! I couldn't sleep at all, very scary night!
