Day 6: Lake NaivashaThis place is a fun place to be and relatively relaxing for the travellers. It is because you can relax at the lake and take a boat ride to get close to the hippos. Once you arrive at Lake Naviasha, simply relax by the lake and in the evening, take a boat ride in the lake. This evening trip is great for spotting hippos and birds. Photographers will have a great time here.
A day trip to Lake Naivasha – a freshwater lake in Kenya. It is approximately a 2-3 hour drive from Nairobi. Situated on the banks of the lake Naivasha, is the sprawling green ‘Lake Naivasha Country Club’ where we had gazelles, zebras and giraffes grazing about freely at an arm’s length distance. The guides took us on a two hour boat ride on the lake where we drifted alongside dozens of hippos, several migratory birds and the occasional croc. After a swim in the beautiful pool and a great lunch at the Country Club, we returned to Nairobi.
