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.
Loldia ranch is looking lovely and green. There is plenty of plains game on the ranch and lots of young around. Birding has been great with the pair of Verreax Eagle Owls still frequenting the lodge gardens and a new visitor the Golden Sunbird, not normally seen in these parts. The house has been undergoing some renovation work and is looking great and our guests have enjoyed great days out at Lake Nakuru National Park.
