Weekend getaway to Mbweha Camp

What you need to know:

  • Inside, the cottages are tastefully furnished, with big beds draped with mosquito nets and an array of easy chairs, tables, sheepskin rugs and paintings. At the back the bathrooms are spacious, some of which have outdoor bathtubs, and at the front the verandas are cosy and provide a great spot to listen to and watch the birds flutter between the shrubs.
  • Because of the conservancy’s location, and because there is so much to do in the area, Saul recommended that guests stay at the camp for at least two days. The first can be spent exploring the rest of Soysambu Conservancy and the shores of Lake Elementaita, before a night game drive around the camp.

For three years, my dad has been urging me to visit Mbweha Camp. He described their cottages as “among the most inviting, charming and pampering that (he) ever had the pleasure of sleeping and waking up in”.
