    Joska Hotel -Nakuru

    (pandhit Nehru Rd, Kshs 400) Foam mattresses have shag- carpet covers in these basic rooms. Everything is rather clean but you will have to be a porcelain jockey- the toilets lack seats. Ask for and upstairs or an inward facing room, as they are quieter.

    Tropical Lodge

    (Moi Rd; s/tw with shared bathroom Kshs 250/350) While the bathrooms are shared, they do have toilet seats (a rarity in these parts). Rooms are simple, quiet and baby blue. It is run by a cheerful woman who makes up for the odd cockroach

    Crater View Lodge

    (Mburu Gichua Rd; s/tw Ksh 300/350) All rooms face a bright inner courtyard, and noise here is less tan you would suspect. The twin rooms are a bargain, even if the bathrooms are a bit rough. Secure parking is available.

    Gituamba Lodge

    (Gusii Rd: s/tw with shared bathroom Kshs 260/345, s/tw Ksh 310/400)The rooms here are bare bone basics, but they are rather large and some have big bright windows. It can be noisy so take a top floor room.

    Other budget hotels that won't curl your toes include the following:

    Care Guest House Nakuru

    (pandit Nehru Rd;s/tw Ksh 300/400)Ask for room 66 Pekars Lodge. (Mburu Gichua Rd; s/tw incl breakfast Ksh 360/720)A good deal for single rooms

    Campers can drop tent in nearby Lake Nakuru National Park, at Hyrax hill Prehistoric site. Or at 20 km west of town at Kembu campsite (US$4, 1-/2-bedroom cottages Kshs 3000/6000). Kembu has a great atmosphere and its particularly popular with over Landers due to its truck workshop and airy bamboo clad bar/ restaurant (order your food in advance).

    The semi- secluded one-bedroom acacia cottage, with French doors, polished wood floors, a gorgeous bed with a lovely bathroom, is easily the Nakuru's most charming room. The larger cottages have kitchens and are great for families. Mountain bikes hire and various treks into the surrounding areas can be arranged. To get there you take a matatu headed to Molo (via Njoro; Ksh 80) and ask to be dropped at the metal gecko sign, about 6 km northwest of Njoro on the C56. It is also sign posted from the A104.
