OUT&ABOUT: Lake Nakuru’s new luxury clifftop camp

What you need to know:

  • The Cliff, the new luxury camp in Lake Nakuru National Park, sits on the edge of the high western ridge of the park.
  • Heading down towards the lake, the vegetation thins, and trunks of drowned acacias stick out of the shallows like skeletal hands from the underworld.
  • A long-crested eagle lands on one of the branches. A gust of wind blows his floppy crest over his face, and he glares at us like a moody teenager.

The sun peaks over the Aberdares, and light spills through the gauze at the front of our tent. A lone pelican drifts in the orange glow of the lake, and a hyena whoops by the shoreline below us. Not your typical wake-up call. We emerge from the tent, still bleary-eyed, and walk across the lawn of The Cliff, the new luxury camp in Lake Nakuru National Park.
