Located on Ol Kokwe Island, in the very centre of Lake Baringo, Island Camp offers an experience not to be missed. At the peak of the island is a rock surrounded pool, bar and gift shop. Below is the open-sided restaurant and bar, and below that a series of tents, each with glorious views across the mud-brown lake.
Lake Baringo is a peaceful and beautiful freshwater lake covering about 168 sq km at an altitude of 1000m. It is a shallow lake (maximum depth is 12m) and, like Lake Naivasha, appears to have no outlet. The lake features small wooded creeks, little islands and white pebble beaches and is framed by mountains to the east and west. The Njemps fishermen can be seen on the lake, to which the Laikipia Escarpment creates a magnificent backdrop. The lake contains large schools of hippo and crocodile. There are several islands, Ol Kokwe being the largest. The lake’s greatest attraction is the variety of birds of which there are said to be 450 species. Mammals include Grant’s gazelle, waterbuck, mongoose and dik dik.
23 tents, all ensuite.
