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 some lovely wildlife sightings this month including a rare Caracal which was seen inside our garden fence one evening. Night game drives on the ranch have revealed leopards and aardvarks and there have been plenty of wonderful day trips to Lake Nakuru National Park. The Supermoon rising over Lake Naivasha was a highlight of the month and we have seen the arrival of the first migrant birds from Europe and Asia.
