Embark on a journey to Lake Naivasha after your breakfast, arriving in time for check-in and a delightful lunch. Spend the afternoon at your leisure, followed by an enchanting evening boat ride to Crescent Island – an extraordinary park where you can walk among the animals!
Crescent Island Game Park, situated on Lake Naivasha in Kenya's Great Rift Valley, boasts more animals per acre than any other Kenyan Park. This unique destination has attracted film companies seeking to capture the herds of Wildebeest, Waterbuck, Zebra, and Gazelle in their natural habitat.
Unfenced and open to the wildlife on the mainland, Crescent Island allows animals to roam freely as they adapt to the challenges of habitat loss and population growth. Experience the fascinating sight of hippos grazing and resting under acacia trees at night, while giraffes return to give birth, showcasing three generations at times. Hyenas hunt at night, and the island's resident pythons are occasionally spotted with their prey.
As you ascend the hill, revel in a 360-degree panoramic view across the lake, from Longonot to Hell's Gate, Mau Escarpment, Eburu, and onto the Aberdares. Stroll along the ridge during the golden hour before sunset, witnessing animals graze with the shimmering water as a backdrop—an authentic African experience. Conclude your day with a boat ride back to the lodge.
