Island Camp is situated on the southern tip of Ol Kokwe Island in the fresh water Lake Baringo, in the Great Rift Valley. Small, exclusive and remote, it offers a perfect opportunity to escape the humdrum of city life and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of this idyllic spot. A range of 16 classic, deluxe and superior rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, set under spreading acacia trees (Club members afford the Classic rooms or upgrades are available and more affordable than booking directly). Relax, swim in the pool, watch birds, go on island excursions, kayaking, play darts, play board games and have a family-fun time.
Why do We Love Island Camp?
We LOVE Island Camp because all Kids LOVE Island Camp. It’s relaxed, the location is beautiful and it’s warm all year round. The pool is the centre of life on the island though we highly recommend you also do some of the activities on offer i.e. boat trips to see the amazing birdlife, hippos, monitor lizards, giraffes etc., ‘dough-nutting’ behind their ski boat, sundowners/kids supper alongside or on Gibraltar island.
