Mbweha Camp

Set on a 6,400 acre private conservancy bordering Lake Nakuru National Park, Mbweha Camp comprises of 10 comfortably furnished stone cottages with thatched roofs set within a shaded grove of acacia and other indigenous trees. The atmosphere at this property is decidedly relaxed, with meals served in a communal dining area. There is also a central shared lounge with wonderful views over the Eburru and Mau mountain ranges and all-important 240V charging facilities.

As Mbeweha Camp lies outside of a national park, activities such as nature walks, mountain biking and night game drives are possible. Congreve Conservancy, where the camp is situated, encompasses much of Lake Elmenteita, a blue-green soda lake rich in birdlife including flamingo, pelican and heron. There are also hot springs in which visitors can soak, believed by the local Maasai to be therapeutic as well as an interesting prehistoric site known as Kariandusi, where tools used by early man were discovered by celebrated paleoanthropologist Louis Leakey.

Game drives take place in 4WD safari vehicles, with a maximum of 6 guests per vehicle, with all gameviewing excursions accompanied with expert local safari guides.
