VISIT LAKE NAIVASHA ON YOUR TRAVEL TO KENYA
Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake located about an hour and a half’s drive North of Nairobi, in the Great Rift Valley. With its proximity to Nairobi it can make a great first or last stop on journeys passing through different parts of Kenya.
It is probably most well known for the boat rides that are readily available on the lake, where one can take a boat across the lake to an area where there are no predators at all, track down zebras or hippos, and walk freely with wild animals and herds of plains game that are attracted by the waters of the lake.
It is also an excellent destination for photographers and birders - especially during sunrise or late afternoon - when the late afternoon or dusk light adds a vibrant colorful life to the area, and to your photographs.
It is also worth exploring some of the other areas nearby - Lake Nakuru is only an hour’s drive away, this makes a perfect day trip from Lake Naivasha.
