The Great Rift Valley Kenya

The Great Rift Valley is a highlight of any trip to Kenya, where breathtaking natural scenery combines with some of Africa’s most memorable wildlife.

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 it are millions of flamingos - the world’s greatest concentration being around Lake Nakuru.

Loldia House is an original Kenyan home set on an old farm on the shores of Lake Naivasha, offering a choice of accommodation either in the original family house or in cottages in the grounds. Idyllically situated on the quiet north-western end of the lake, this is the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley.
