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 busy September hosting guests from all across the world. The grounds close to the house have been visited by zebra, impala, hippos, warthog and the lone giraffe. The Kenya Wildlife Services were called in to help an eland that was found with a snare around its neck, the eland was freed successfully. And there has been some good fishing enjoyed in the lake in front of the house.
