VISIT THE RIFT VALLEY

What to Expect

Lake Nakuru National Park

Dubbed the birdwatchers Paradise, the lake inside the park is home to a spectacular variety of terrestial birds numbering over 450 species, including the migratory ones that do not breed here. The area consists of Makalia Falls and Baboon Cliff which gives one a bird's eye-view of the whole park including the Nakuru town. The park itself is home to wildlife including the highly elusive and endangered big and meek plains white rhino and its smaller but aggressive forest cousin black rhino, rare Rothschild giraffe with its white shanks (like football socks, unlike its common cousins along Naivasha Highway, Mara, Amboseli and Nairobi), the occassional leopard and various small small & big antelopes. The lake itself is a haven for both the Greater & Lesser flamingo that provide a pink carpet over its stretch when viewed from the cliff or from the shores. Other birds include egret, kingfisher and the conspicuously sized giant pelican among others.

Lake Naivasha

This Rift Valley fresh-water lake is a major getaway for those yearning for a holiday with a difference. It plays host to very large hippo families and prolific birdlfe including kingfisher, fish eagle, the lighter pink-shaded Greater flamingo and the dramatically large pelican among others. A boat-ride here would take you closer to all these with a crowning of game-viewing while on foot at the Crescent Island, a sanctuary hosting giraffe, wildebeest, various antelope species, zebra and other plains game (not predators). The Naivasha area itslef is home to Kenya's robust horticultural farms and would act as a launch-pad for other nearby adventure spots like the National Parks of Nakuru, Hell's Gate & Mount Longonot. Activities to be done here include hiking, cycling, horse-riding and boat rides (these come at extra costs negotiable direct at the lodges upon request)
