After breakfast, drive to Lake Naivasha arriving in time for check in and lunch. Later in the evening, we will have sundowner boat ride in the lake as we watch birds and hippos.
The highest of all the Rift Valley lakes, Lk. Naivasha is a beautiful shallow freshwater lake fringed by thick papyrus reeds.
The waters of the lake draw great array of bird life to its shoreline. Buffalo wallow in the swamps, whilst the large hippo population laze their days in the shallows. Giraffe wander among the acacia, whilst the Colobus monkeys swing from the green canopies above. From here, you can also visit Elsamere & Crescent Island game sanctuary.
This afternoon we visit the Crescent Island Sanctuary . We explore this beautiful Island on foot, spotting the numerous birds and wildlife found here. Crescent Island is home to some 200 species of birds, including healthy numbers of fish eagles, cormorants and pelicans, among others. Wildlife sightings include wildebeests, giraffes, zebras and a variety of antelopes, such as waterbuck, gazelles, elands and impalas. The lake is inhabited by an abundance of hippos, which can also be spotted from the boat and the island.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge, overlooking the lake. The safari camp is set around the original trees on its now rolling lawns, amid grasslands. Spot giraffes, monkeys and waterbuck at the camp as well as visiting hippos. Dinner and Overnight at Sawela Lodge | Naivasha Sopa Lodge | Similar- Meal Plan (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
