The Great Rift Valley

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. 


February at Loldia House

February has been a dry month not unlike the rest of Kenya. Minimal rain and heavy winds has meant things have really started to dry out, but the upside to it is, on our little oasis in front of the lake, the game has been teeming! Impala continue to enjoy our lush lawns, and much of the game can be spotted right in front of Loldia house as they take advantage of the cool lake waters. Due to the drier weather at the moment, the sunrises and sunsets have been absolutely magnificent!
