The rich flora around Lake Naivasha attracts a variety of animals that include buffalo, antelope, giraffe, warthog and monkey, and you will almost certainly catch sight of hippos lazily watching proceedings from the cooling water.

The highest and purest of the Great Rift Valley’s lakes, Naivasha also plays host to a variety of birdlife; more than 400 species have been recorded here. Many can be spotted along the shoreline – from pelicans and fish eagles to weavers and warblers.

Nearby Hell’s Gate National Park is well worth a visit, to see its spectacular canyons, hot springs and wildlife, as is Born Free author Joy Adamson’s house.
