LAKE NAIVASHA

A birding paradise

Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha is the highest of the Rift Valley Lakes and despite having no outlet is one of only two Rift Valley freshwater lakes. The beautiful lake is fringed by papyrus and acacia trees and supports a vast array of bird species. Although it is more than 10kms across it is very shallow and its area varies considerably with the rainfall, so much so that in the early 1900s it totally dried up.

Cresent Island

Crescent Island Game Sanctuary is located on Lake Naivasha, Kenya in the Great Rift Valley. It is one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya and is Naivasha’s best-kept secret. Surrounded by water, it is actually a peninsula and is accessible by boat from East or West as well as by road. From the top of the hill, there is a 360-degree view across the Lake from Longonot to Hell’s Gate to the Mau Escarpment to Eburu and onto the Aberdares. Walking along the ridge in the golden hour before sunset whilst watching the animals grazing with the water shimmering beyond is what Africa is all about.

Best time to visit Lake Naivasha

This destination can be visited at any time of the year. The most ideal time, however, is between June and October from a game viewing point of view.
