Mbweha Safari Camp (Lake Nakuru) Kenya
Mbweha Safari Camp is set on a 6,400 acre private game conservancy, which is adjacent to the southern boundaries of Lake Nakuru National Park.
Lake Nakuru is 160 kms north of Nairobi and lies at the heart of the Great Rift Valley. Nearby are the lakes of Elementaita, Naivasha and Bogoria.
The camp consists of 10 cottages built of lava stone and thatched makuti roof add glamour and style to its contemporary African ambience. Every cottage is surrounded by Candelabra Euphorbia, yellow barked Acacia and other indigenous trees that provide a relaxed atmosphere as you listen to the African night sounds of a lion roar or the laughter of the hyena in the distance.
The camp offers a central dining room and a sunken bar with open fireplace.
Breakfast and the three-course lunch are generally taken outdoors. Dinner is a four-course, candlelit affair and may be served in the open-front dining area or under the bright skies. Our clients praise both the food and the service here.
What to see and do Shimmering mirage, flamingo realm Entitled ‘the greatest bird spectacle on earth' thanks to the millions of fuchsia-pink flamingo that flock to feed on the teeming algae of its alkaline waters, the pink-frosted shores and sky-mirrored waters of Lake Nakuru yield some of the most evocatively beautiful photo-images in Africa.
Small in size, but high in wildlife, this park makes the ideal day trip, enroute to other destinations and abounds in picturesque lookouts and picnic spots. As Kenya's first and largest rhino sanctuary, sightings of both black and white rhino are almost guaranteed, while plentiful waterbuck, warthog, zebra, gazelle and buffalo graze the shoreline. Echoing to the haunting cries of the numerous fish eagles, this is also the park in which you have the best chance of seeing a leopard.
Wildlife highlights: lion, black and white rhino, waterbuck, hippo, leopard, impala, gazelle, hyena, wild cat, golden cat, hyrax, colobus monkey, and Rothschild's giraffe. Birds: 1.5 million flamingos and 450 other recorded species.
When to go:
When to go: The best months for travelling to Kenya are June through the end of October and then December through the end of March.
If you are wanting to see the Great Migration then I suggest the months of July, August and September, these are also the busiest times along with the Christmas holidays as this is when school holidays fall.
If you prefer to travel when the game is still superb but it is not so busy then I recommend the following months, June, September, October, November, February, March, April and May!
