Camping in Naivasha is a must-do holiday experience for anyone seeking a breath of fresh air from the ups and downs of daily life. The first key to having a great experience, is picking the right location.
But first a quick geography lesson – trust us it’s important.
Located 92.8 km NW of Kenya’s capital, Naivasha is a large town in Nakuru County known for its agriculture, but perhaps more so, for its attractiveness to both local and international tourists. This humble town, located in the Rift Valley basin, provides easy access to some of Kenya’s most awe-inspiring eco-destinations, such as the controversial Lake Naivasha, Mt. Longonot the towering stratovolcano, and Hell’s Gate, an aptly named geographical wonder that’s gone to inspire locations featured in films such as The Lion King. And let’s not forget the Geothermal Spa where weary travelers can grab a rejuvenating dip in the heated pool and learn about the more practical, possibly surprising, uses of geothermal energy. The best time of year to visit this region and enjoy all its wonderous outdoor activities, unconstrained by the effects of rain, is generally from early August to mid-October, and from mid-December to early March.
Now that you have an idea of what to look out for on your camping trip to Naivasha, you’ll need to figure out where you’ll stay. This is where we, Naivasha West Beach Camp come in.
