Lake Naivasha, in the heart of the Great Rift Valley, is renowned for its spectacular bird life with over 350 different species. Being a fresh water lake it is ideal for a range of water sports from fishing to water skiing. Other attractions include climbing Mt. Longonot, Golfing at the Great Rift Valley Lodge, game viewing and rock climbing in Hell’s gate, viewing flamingoes on the nearby Oloidien and Crater Lakes, visiting show case flower farms and the geothermal plant at Ol Karia. You can take boat cruises around the lake, bird and hippo watching, from our jetty or walk amongst the game on our own private game sanctuary. Your days can be as action packed or as relaxing as you want them to be.
The lake has a surface area of 139 square kilometers and an average depth of 6 meters. It is stocked with black bass , tilapia and carp and there is a thriving fishing industry around the lake.
The lake is at the highest elevation of the Kenya Rift Valley at 1890 meters (6200 feet) so the days are warm and the nights are pleasantly chilly.
The Lake Naivasha Riparian Association received the Ramsar Wetland Conservation Award for its conservation efforts regarding the lake which is a renowned Ramsar site.
