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 has had a lovely festive season welcoming guests from all over the world. Loldia remains a birders paradise and the highlight of the month was the fledgling fish eagles learning to fly in the garden, with take off sites in the big fig tree there have been some near misses with the breakfast table. There are now 4 resident giraffe on the ranch and night game drives have revealed aardvarks and tiny new born hippos.
