A magical time by Lake Naivasha

Article published in Daily Nation on February 12th 2015: While very hotel in Naivasha is differently unique in its own way, Crescent Camp stands out for the experience of camping above the ground, besides the resident water buck that obligingly pose gracefully and the cantankerous hippos that only come out at dusk to browse on the shores of the lake there are lots of other things to see and experience.

On the shores of Lake Naivasha where hippos roam the night lies an enigma. It is at once a luxurious log cabin and then a tented banda all in one.

While very hotel in Naivasha is differently unique in its own way, Crescent Camp stands out for the experience of camping above the ground, right up with the chirping birds nestling in the acacia trees towering over the tents. As a kaleidoscope of birds fly above occasionally taking diving into the swimming pool to cool off in the sweltering heat, it is easy to get lost in the wonder of nature.

While at the camp you can take a guided walk through nature trails and see many unique plants, birds and animals.

Some cows come to the lake to graze and with them the attendant white egrets that keep them tick-free.

Besides the resident water buck that obligingly pose gracefully and the cantankerous hippos that only come out at dusk to browse on the shores of the lake there are lots of other things to see and experience.

Crescent camp also arranges a boat safari that will take you to the Crescent Islands about an hour away where you will see more of the wildlife and the scenery.

To kick back there is a bar with a pool table and you can enjoy your favourite tipple.
