This exclusive and peaceful walking safari experience is particularly dreamy as there won’t be another tourist in sight!
We especially recommend arranging a cheeky sun-downer (or three) down by the lake to watch one of Kenya’s most beautiful sunsets and enjoy the ‘guffaw’ of the hippos as they enjoy their final hours of wallowing before their evening graze.
Feeling too relaxed to move? Enjoy a massage or get your nails done from the comfort of the veranda. Visit the Naivasha Raptor Centre located in the Kilimandege Sanctuary.
Designed to serve as a first base for incoming injured birds where initial treatment and housing are provided, as well as longer-term care for recovering and permanently injured raptors for public educational display.
