On this occasion we made the complete article after the trip, so we went directly to our usual “GUIDED VISIT” of the accommodation With all the details and impressions.
When deciding on a place to stay, we chose to move away from the park area, since it is a closed and very exploited tourist lake, and we stayed in a Location on the outskirts, in the Menengai crater where you can still see fumaroles of various gases among the abundant vegetation of a dead volcano.
Upon arrival we find a huge house that serves both reception, bar and dinner and breakfast area (with only 4 or 5 tables). From there, there are several paths that take you to the different tent-type cabins of the complex.
The reservation, like the rest of those made in the part of Kenya, we made with Safi Safaris that gets better local prices than those offered on the internet, although they can be made directly from your own website for about between € 30-40 / person and night
We are in a true sanctuary of relaxation and tranquility, just 10 km from the entrance of the Nakuru Lake Park, the main attraction of the area.
The rooms, barely 10 tent-type cabins distributed throughout the complex, serve a maximum of 20 people at the same time thus guaranteeing the philosophy of peace and tranquility of the place. It is a kind of protected tents with the cabin roof itself, thus protecting them from possible weather setbacks.
The interior of them is very simple (of course without telephone, television, ...), with a large bed that eats a lot of space to the room and that has a kind of lanterns whose electricity depends on the schedules of the complex.
He bath, just as simple, it has hot water but after several minutes of waiting, and if it is cold outside it is somewhat bleak. Perhaps it is the weak point of this option.
Of the rest highlight the wonderful landscape that surrounds us, the absolutely exquisite attention of all the staff and the bar area, where at night and after dinner it is more than appetizing to have a coffee in the heat of the fire that ignites there. Of course there is no WIFI, or other amenities ...
As for "bugs" for the most delicate, at the time we were there were no mosquitoes of any kind and we did not find any other type of insect or animal "weird" either in the room or on the premises.
The we would recommendyes Yes, because it meets the economizing objective of this mandatory stop away from the expensive accommodations within the park. It is recommended by CHAVETAS.ES from here.
