Where you’ll be

Naivasha, Nakuru County, Kenya

Located only 100 km away from Nairobi and a popular spot for a day trip, Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Nakuru county. It is part of the Great Rift Valley and owes its name to the Maasai word “naiposha”, meaning “rough water” due to the storms that can suddenly arise here. Acacia woodlands swamps fringed by papyrus, forest and spectacular geological features surround Lake Naivasha.

Lake Naivasha is also included in the “List of Wetlands of International Importance” (Ramsar sites) and boasts over 400 species of birds, like fish eagles, ospreys, lily-trotters, black crakes and herons.

Crescent Island is a private Wildlife Sanctuary on the eastern side of Lake Naivasha. The Island features more animals per acre than any other park in Kenya. Here you can enjoy a fantastic and easy walks surrounded by various animals including giraffe, zebra, Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelles, waterbuck, buffalo and many bird species. It’s also common to spot hippos bathing or basking in the sun close to the island’s shores. The Island is not fenced and the animals are free to roam to and from the mainland when water levels allow.
