A beautiful oasis on the shoreline of Lake Baringo, Kenya

Come and join us in experiencing the highest water levels in living memory

Approximately four hours drive from Nairobi in the heart of Kenyas Great Rift Valley, lies Lake Baringo - on the threshold of Kenya’s Northern Deserts. The orange-brown waters of the lake and dramatic rocky surroundings provide us with one of Kenya’s most stunning areas.

Roberts’ Camp is a beautiful lakeside campsite, we offer bandas, a cottage, large and small safari tents, dome tents and campsite grounds with clean toilet and shower facilities.

The Thirsty Goat Bar and Restaurant is open, and campers are welcome, although please note there is limited space. Please contact us prior to planning a visit to confirm availability.

Baringo is home to an unparalleled variety of birds, and some unusual wild creatures. While you may not encounter all of Baringo’s 450 bird species, you’re likely to spot Verreaux’s Eagle Owls, Hammerkops, Storks, Hornbills, and Fish Eagles around the lake, while in the camp itself, you can spend many enjoyable hours identifying the colourful array of Weavers, Starlings, and Sunbirds. We have a number of well trained guides and bookings can be made through the reception for the wide variety of activities on offer.

At night you can experience the thrill of seeing or hearing hippos, sometimes with young, grazing on the lawns and returning to the water by day. Meanwhile on the lakeshore, those logs floating by are often slumbering crocodiles!

The camp is safe for visitors, but guests are reminded that animals, especially hippos, should never be approached too closely, and special care must be taken after dark.

A great many of our guests are those going through Africa with a tent on their back and only their fancy to guide them. And no visitors can forget those ice cold beers (which go down well after a dry, dusty day on the road) from our restaurant The Thirsty Goat.
