Lake Naivasha Kenya
Lake Naivasha, a beautiful freshwater lake surrounded by a number of hills that harbor a multitude of Wildlife is located at 85km North West of Kenya’s capital Nairobi which is just over an hour’s drive by public or Private Transport, including Charter Flights. This lake was christened by the British from a Maasai word ‘Naiposha’, which means the waves occasionally made by the afternoon wind across the lake.
The Yellow barked Acacia that abound with bird life make Naivasha a world class birding destination thus a haven for Bird Lovers and Researchers. A great way to spend a morning or afternoon is taking a boat trip around the lake encountering local fishermen, Columbus Monkeys, Buffaloes from the swamps, Giraffes among the acacia, and a population of Hippos sleeping the day out in the shallows.
Great places to look at while in Naivasha include the privately owned Crater Lake Game Sanctuary situated on the former estate of Lady Diana Delamere, and "Elsamere" a Wildlife Education and Conservation Centre (once a home to Joy Adamson, author of Born free). Walking, hiking, biking and rock climbing is also ideal in Hell's Gate National Park named for its pair of massive Red Tinged Cliffs framing a geothermically active interior of steam vents and bubbling springs.
