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.
With rain around in all the catchment areas lake levels on Lake Naivasha remains high. The water hyacinth is in bloom making a carpet of beautiful lilac flowers across the edge of the lake. Guests have been enjoying lovely boat trips out on the lake and night game drives. Across the other side of the lake a new birds of prey rescue centre has opened and our guests have been enjoying visiting this new project.
