Punda Milias Nakuru Camp – Adventures In ‘Kenyaland’ I

This post is long overdue. Let me give you the prelude to this story. If you are a marketer, you might understand the science behind email marketing only too well. You send out emails faithfully and pray to God that your subscribers get the gist of your message and will eventually buy into it someday. So one by one, I kept receiving emails from the very lovely people at Kichakani Sunset. Come September, I received one email saying that they would be going to two places for the price of one. The Kenyan in me checked in imminjiet!

Fast forward to the day of the trip, which by the way, was also the day I was to be travel down to Watamu. Adventures in ‘Kenyaland’ was just about to begin.

What is a morning without a cuppa?

We used the Mai-Mahiu route, which is very scenic by the way, and had our first stop at the view point.

These paintings rock… 🙂

So onward we went to this quaint, little camp, set on about 10 acres of beautifully manicured, lush lawns. The camp is located near the Soysambu Conservancy, about 3km off the Nairobi – Nakuru highway and offers a variety of accommodation options.

Loved how they made use of these chalkboards

The butternut starter soup had my taste buds rejoicing and the pork chops were quite something. The meal was just delish!

The camp offers accommodation in bush tents, family tents, luxury safari tents, and bandas. There is also one dorm tent that can sleep 10 guests comfortably. All accommodation options feature elements that are made from natural materials, adding to the authentic feel of this serene hideout. Some of the accommodation options feature outdoor showers * 🙂 insert grin* all designed using natural materials.

The camp also features a lodge, Hippo cottage, where guests can enjoy some peace and quiet with meals on self-catering basis. Guests can also camp on the grounds and prepare their own meals from the various cooking areas at the camp.

If you are looking for a serene, budget-friendly place to get away, I would recommend this place. Also, did I mention that I missed my bus to Malindi on this day? Look out for part II of my escapades…
