This is why you should consider Camping for your next vacation

The thought of camping brings back memories of a bus full of about 60 young adults excited to explore the Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Tsavo and other scenic places we traveled to as students in our campus days. We stretched our budgets into a week of game drives, nature trail visits, barbecues and night thrills of roaring lions, howling hyenas and elephant silhouettes.

My first visit to Burch Resort was totally by default. We happened to be at Hells Gate on an impromptu detour and decided to take it a notch higher by camping the night away. Our guide recommended this cool camping site that had recently opened and we ended up at Burch’s Resort. I insisted to the gentleman who answered the phone that I preferred a tent by the Lake, a bonfire and lots of coffee. He was happy to oblige. I paid through my mobile phone on their pay bill number 522228, and we arrived in time to view the glorious sunset by the lake. I’ve camped before in different settings but the experience at Burch was simply amazing.

Ever considered camping for vacation? This is why you should.

  • It’s ideal for a group of friends in terms of budget and bonding.

Make new memories by sharing old ones while you soak in the warmth of coffee, hearty chats and the bonfire. Dance the night away to keep your friends entertained and for that Instagram story we talked about last time. Carry your barbecue sauce and showcase your hosting skills, perhaps the only culinary art you can hack.


  • Best for families not shy to explore the outdoors. Camping is a great way to teach children about life and survival skills. They can learn how to pitch a tent, start a fire, roast meat and get over the fear of the night. What a great opportunity to get the dads on official kitchen duties.
Our grounds are large and private. The lake is right behind the tents and accessible through a footpath.
  • Great for tourists on vacation. Again for budget purposes and absorbing the true nature of a holiday destination.
We hosted a group of Chinese travellers exploring different parts of Africa
  • It’s cheaper and easier to travel with minimal resources
