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.
Deciding where to stay in Naivasha was not difficult. We read of a place where the large cabins that house the rooms share a stage with a large meadow next to the lake and where the hippos go free at night to feed around us (of course, with the appropriate care not to run into they by surprise). That place was our choice, the Naivasha Soup Resort.
The first thing we find is a large reception and a huge building that houses the restaurant, the different rooms and activities of the complex. From here there are several paths that, forming an oval, locate different cabins around a meadow full of hervivoros (giraffes, antelopes and hippopotamus at night).
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 50-75 € / person and night
Located on the southern shore of Lake Naivasha, the second largest of the lakes in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, this complex is an impressive property with a spectacular backdrop.
The rooms, 84 distributed between suites and standard, are distributed among the total of built cabins.
The interior surprises with how spacious it is, clean and without mosquitoes (despite the lake) at this time of year. !! We have space on all sides! It also has a balcony that offers views of the prairie animals.
He bath, like the rooms, it is large. It has gels, shampoos, hair dryer and hot water. It has two subzones, a large shower and a mirror area and wc.
The rest of the complex has a swimming pool, restaurant, bar, conference room, laundry room, gym, internet access, and all kinds of activities and facilities (it even offers its own tours).
The best moment comes at the last minute when, after dinner, the night has fallen and next to a flashlight and, accompanied by a guard, we walk to the cabin that locates the room surrounded by all kinds of animals and "perceiving" that tension that inspires the appearance of a hippo at any time. Oh no?. Curious at least.
The we would recommendyes Yes. In the case of dropping by Naivasha, which may be more or less recommended, this accommodation offers location, integration with the environment and experience. It is recommended by CHAVETAS.ES from here.
