GUIDE ON MAILI SABA CAMP IN KENYA

Navigation Tip - Go Directly To Prices, Reviews, Map, Photos, Video & Room Rate Guide For Maili Saba Camp

Awaken each morning to the sweeping crater vistas of the green caldera of the now extinct Menengai shielded volcano. Sunlight breaks gently over the scenic beauty of the rift set to the music of melodic birds and other forest sounds that only adds to the serenity of the locale. This is only a part of your unforgettable AfricanMecca safari in Kenya at the Maili Saba Camp. Located less than seven miles (thus the name in Kiswahili) from Lake Nakuru National Park, this value accommodation comprises of 10 tented bandas with thatched roofs. The dwellings are sited overlooking the crater on a carpet of greenery with walkways leading around. While three walls of each tent are made of canvas with netted windows and a fold-back door opening, the fourth wall and floor foundation is made of stone that not only adds sturdiness to the structure but also lends a pastoral charm to the comfortable rooms. Some of the rooms have a single bed in addition to the double bed to sleep a third person. The bandas also come with a bathroom that has a shower and the basic amenities you will need for your expedition holiday in East Africa. The small outside patio is perfect for scenic vistas while sitting and sipping a drink on your wooden safari chairs. Leave for your morning game drive after your early breakfast at Maili Saba. Lake Nakuru is a good thirty to forty-five minutes’ drive away due to its jagged road conditions but on arrival at the park, your safari guide will take you to see the many natural wonders of this natural paradise on earth. You will notice the park is protected by an electrified fence that is absent in most national parks in Kenya. This fence has been installed for the protection of the rare black rhinos and Rothschild giraffe that have been relocated here for protection against poachers.

As you travel further into the park on your exploratory tour of Lake Nakuru, your AfricanMecca guide who are adept in the knowledge of animal behavior and trained in tracking them will point out an elusive leopard resting on the branches of fever trees close to the lake. Watch herds of zebras, waterbucks, gazelles, impalas and reedbucks graze on the rich grasses of the savannah and often lurking in the grasses are lions or hyenas looking for easy meals. But even from a distance, the rich fuchsia of the flamingos dominates the picture. Lake Nakuru is home to over one million flamingos of two varieties besides an astounding 450 species of other avian fauna. Also lazing in the cool waters of the lake and the swamps around, you will see hippos in the company of water birds like ducks, avocets, stilts and pelicans. You may opt for a picnic lunch in Lake Nakuru or for those who want to return back to the camp, lunch awaits you at the dining-cum-bar area that is again built in a combination of thatch and stone with modest furniture. After your meal, you can lounge in one of the sunbeds around the swimming pool or take a refreshing dip in it. If you prefer a full day game drive trip, you can request a picnic lunch at one of the spots on the ridges surrounding three sides of the Lake Nakuru. There are also specified locations that are ideal for bird watchers and scenic photographers to set up their equipment and take lots of pictures. If you have had lunch at the camp, you can venture out after your siesta for a walk around the crater rim ending with a sundowner. And then it is back at the Maili Saba Camp restaurant for a tasty dinner with a good selection of local and international cuisine. Oil lamps are lighted for a romantic feel while you reminisce the exciting AfricanMecca vacationing moments of your dream travel in Lake Nakuru National Park.
