Naivasha weekend Getaway

Naivasha is just 1 hour and half from the city of Nairobi. For transiting and Business travelers who have 2 days in Kenya you can pop in to the lake side and enjoy the hidden gem. With more activities to do you can never miss to enjoy extreme ambiance atmosphere. The lake and its surrounds are rich in natural bounty; much of the lake is surrounded by forests of the yellow barked Acacia Xanthophlea, known as the yellow fever tree. These forests abound with bird life, and Naivasha is known as a world class birding destination.

The waters of the lake draw a great range of game to these shores. Giraffes wander among the acacia, Buffalo wallow in the swamps and Colobus monkeys call from the treetops while the Lakes large hippo population sleeps the day out in the shallows. The region surrounding the Lake is well worth exploring. There are two more smaller lakes nearby, Oloidien, and Sonachi, a bright green crater lake.

Hell’s Gate National Park lies beside the lake. This Park was named for its pair of massive red tinged cliffs framing a geothermically active interior of steam vents and bubbling springs. This is worth visiting and dip yourself in the naturally heated pool. The park is home to a profusion of plains game and birdlife.

Walking is permitted, making it ideal for hiking, biking, and rock climbing. Boat trips on the lake are widely available, and is a great way to spend an afternoon or morning. Sunsets are always stunning, with the haunting call of a Fish Eagle high over the Lake bringing the day to a perfect end.
