Lake Naivasha Safari Holidays

Spectacular golden hour

With the highest of the Great Rift Valley lakes, Lake Naivasha National Park is just a short distance from Nairobi, Kenya's capital city, but its peaceful wild beauty make it feel poles apart. 

Paddle your boat past the papyrus-fringed shores of the freshwater lake and see giraffes peeking through the acacia, dainty impala grazing,  hippos wallowing in the swamps and a multitude of birdlife. Naivasha is particularly spectacular during golden hour – just before sunset – when you can watch the animals of Kenya come out to feed near the shimmering water from the hillcrest ridge at Crescent Island Game Sanctuary. Soak up the tranquility of nature as you watch the silent orange orb sink on the expansive African horizon.

We highly recommend you include a visit to this national park as part of your Kenya safari adventure.
