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.
August has been a busy month at Loldia, our guests have been enjoying day and night game drives on the ranch where we have even had sightings of the rare giant forest hog. The birding has been fabulous and we have even begun to see the arrival of the first european migrants. We have also had great day trips to Lake Nakuru National Park and Lake Bogoria where there are currently millions of flamingoes.
