The perfect lodge for a one-night stay near Lake Nakura National Park, Mbweha Safari Camp is a very small, personalised camp with good quality food cooked fresh to order with a waiter service in the middle of one of Kenya’s most astonishing wilderness areas of the Great Rift Valley.
Find plenty of glass-bottled water in the room, solar lighting for lights and set times for electricity and Wi-Fi in an authentic breakaway from hectic urban living for a while. Make sure you book enough time for nature walks, birding and picnics in the conservancy. Located adjacent to Lake Nakura in the hypnotic Great Rift Valley, Mbweha Safari Camp sits quietly within the private 6 400-acre Congreve Conservancy.
Your wilderness chalets feature astounding views over the Eburru and Mau mountains and the Congreve Conservancy is part of the greater conservancy area called Soysambu. Guests love their quirky lava stone rooms with thatched roofs and all modern comforts such as mosquito nets over king-size beds, stone showers and bathtubs in the garden. Socialise around the blazing fire pit at night and share stories with the game rangers who then walk you to bed for a deep night’s sleep in the heart of nature.
This eco-camp is serene, funky euphorbia candelabra, acacia and other iconic indigenous trees shading the tasteful guest areas, decks and walkways – game drives just happen without radios and other technologies – just the wildlife as it unfolds in a sensory landscape. Experience unforgettable drives into Lake Nakuru National Park and the Soysambu Conservancy that helps to reintroduce mammals from other parts of Kenya into the animal migration corridors to Lake Nakuru and the Lake Naivasha area – it has set up a new wildlife area in this part of the Rift Valley.
Find the rustic chic Mbweha Safari Camp in the greater Soysambu Conservancy in a smaller private conservancy called the Congreve on the edge of the delightful Lake Nakuru National Park. Millions of pink flamingos live on Lake Nakuru, one of the lakes of the Great Rift Valley, because these birds love the shallow waters and move on after the rains come. The two species of flamingo are the smaller ’lesser’ flamingo and the large ‘greater’ flamingo that live among pink pelicans and rhinos.
This splendid setting makes Mbweha Safari Camp the unforgettable safari destination that it is, and its commitment to eco policies adds to the desire to conserve wildlife and natural resources. Only 10 classic stone and thatch chalets boast private decks, large beds and ensuite showers and baths with a view. Soft colors and an African theme plus the luxury of Wi-Fi keep guests happy. Enjoy private meals here or sit around the fire pit at night to enjoy freshly grilled meat dishes and traditional Kenyan delicacies too.
Incredible indigenous trees shade the camp and add to its magic where local people provide 5-star service and amenities include a lounge, dining area, decks, solar lights and other comforts. The dazzling swimming pool, bar and sunny decks ensure relaxation between game-viewing activities and time to read a book or game view from your own space.
Guests can enjoy an array of activities such as game drives, guided walks and bush dinners. Lake Nakuru is a 25-minute drive away; while Nairobi City Centre is 3 hours away. Voyage2Africa takes you on tours to lovely Lake Nakuru, one of the 3 inter-linked lakes in the Rift Valley and the most important foraging site for the Lesser flamingo and a major breeding ground for Great white pelicans.
