Nanyuki River Camel Camp is situated only 4 kilometers from the centre of Nanyuki town, at the Eastern foot of Mount Kenya. The Camel Camp is located on the banks of the Nanyuki River, beneath a canopy of Cedar and Podo trees.

By road from Nanyuki takes approximately 20 minutes. Nanyuki River Camel Camp offers very basic camping and the rare possibility to spend a night in original Somali huts.

Nanyuki River Camel Camp sits on the banks of the Nanyuki River, beneath a canopy of Cedar and Podo trees in Nanyuki just opposite the big British Air Force base north of Mt. Kenya. The camp is 4 kilometers from the centre of Nanyuki town, at the Eastern foot of Mount Kenya.

The camp is owned and operated by a couple, Chris and Nasra Field, and was developed by Chris Field after spending twenty years living as a nomad, helping pastoralists become more self-reliant, in the arid regions of northern Kenyan on the Ethiopian border. Although three-quarters of Kenya is arid or semi-arid, most visitors to Kenya never experience such extreme ways of life.

The camp has 10 traditional Somali houses brought from Mandera and Isiolo and are made from woven palm mats attached to wooden frames. They provide accommodation for 20 guests.

Additional campsites are located along the river and guests can pitch their own tents. There are shared bathrooms, toilets, and a kitchen. The camp has a dining banda with a campfire where guests can enjoy their meals.

Activities in the Nanyuki River Camel Camp include nature walks, bird watching, raft racing,  Somali hut building, camel rides, and trekking and game drives to the Ol Pejeta.

Guests can also drink camels’ milk, learn about the lives of nomads and their camels, enjoy traditional meals, enjoy the freedom of true nomads and even buy traditional souvenirs.

Nanyuki River Camel Camp is designed to offer you the experience of the lifestyle of the Northern Nomadic peoples, within a few kilometers of Nanyuki town. You sleep in the traditional houses, eat traditional meals, drink camels’ milk, and have the opportunity of learning about the lives of nomads and their camel experts.
