My adventure at lake Naivasha

The Lake Naivasha is a birdwatchers dream comes true. Some areas of Lake Shore have recorded over 400 species. The acacia forests teem with Hoopoe, Woodpeckers, Rollers, Shrikes, Hawks, cuckoos and much more. A walk along the shore, or even sitting and relaxing in a single place, will provide the visitor with endlessly rich sightings.

A trip out onto the Lake is even more impressive. The water is dotted with Pelicans and the papyrus alive with Kingfisher, Heron, and Jacarandas and more, while high in the trees over the Lake you will find Africa’s largest concentration of African Fish Eagles. These mighty birds dominate the air over the Lake, their haunting cries echoing across the shores as they plunge to the surface and pull fish from the water.

The Lake is also famous for its Hippo population, and there are more than 400 here. Boat trips can be taken from many lakeside lodges and campsites, providing an ideal opportunity to see large pods of Hippo lying half submerged in the water.

At night they emerge to graze on the Lakeshore. At some Lakeshore lodges and campsites, the remarkable sight of these massive creatures grazing across the lawns is a nightly occurrence. Most visitors are amazed when they see just how large a hippo is when it emerges from the water. It is an awe-inspiring sight, even more so when they are grazing a few feet from the door of your tent. Hippos are a common cause of sleepless nights for lakeside campers.

Crescent Island, a partially submerged volcanic crater, is a private game sanctuary with herds of wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, gazelle and other plains game. Many local lodges can organize boat trips to the island, where you can walk among the herds of game.

North West of the Lake is the Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. This is a small private sanctuary centered on a volcanic crater lake with spectacular green water. The lake attracts many flamingos, and the surrounding forests and plains have plenty of game. This is a good place to explore on foot.

I will never forget this scenario in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley.
