Do not venture out at night. Elsamere camp, Kenya

We were staying at Elsamere Camp at Naivasha , Kenya. This was in Nov 2011 and we were here after a two day Masai Mara safari tour. The camp is absolutely THE place to stay when you are in Naivasha.

Both of these locations are around a huge lake which offers boat rides and is a haven for bird lovers.
