Breathtaking natural scenery combines with some of Africa’s most memorable wildlife. The Great Rift Valley is a highlight of any trip to Kenya. A huge geological fault-line, the Great Rift Valley stretches round one-sixth of the Earth’s circumference. Along its lengths are volcanoes, most now dormant. One of the rarest animals found here is the rhino. Living alongside are millions of flamingos, the world’s greatest concentration around Lake Nakuru. Close to the main attractions is Loldia House an old farmhouse converted and run by Governors’ Camps. An original Kenya home it is set on an old farm on the shores of Lake Naivasha, where guests can experience the Kenya of old, with its gentle pace of life, drive, walk or horseback ride among the herds of plains game which live alongside farm animals.
Rain has arrived on the ranch and there are young animals everywhere you look. Down by the lake a mother and baby hippo have made their home close to the jetty and up at the airstrip there is lots of wildlife. Guest have had great day trips to Lake Nakuru seeing up to six white rhinos at a time and prides of lion with flamingoes on the southern side of the lake. We have also been on a recce to explore Eburru a beautiful wild region close to us and we hope to open this up as an activity to guests soon.
