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.
We have received a lot of lovely guests at Loldia over the last month. It has been quite chilly at times with winds coming off the lake and we have received some good rain which is always welcome. A pair of crested cranes have begun to nest at the pump house and the impalas are moving about on the ranch to graze. Guests visiting Lake Nakuru National Park have had nice sightings of rhino, giraffe, lion and colobus monkeys and back at the house we now have wifi signal to all the guest rooms.
