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.
At Loldia House we are waiting for the arrival of the long predicted El Nino rains. Our guest have been enjoying boat trips on the lake, day trips to Lake Ol Oldien and Lake Nakuru where they have been seeing lion and lots and lots of rhino. Back at the house we have had some interesting visitors including a python who came to the garden and quickly left, a giraffe who politely stepped over the fence, a family of warthogs and a rather old Eland.
