Lake Naivasha, in Kenya's Nakuru County, is the highest of the Great Rift Valley Lakes and despite having no outlet, it is one of only two Rift Valley freshwater lakes. Fringed by papyrus and acacia trees, this gorgeous setting is a unique geologic landscape that supports over 450 bird species. The lake serves as the main drinking hole for wildlife in the area such as zebra, eland, hippo, waterbuck, buffalo and many more animals, allowing for some superb game viewing. Visitors can look forward to intriguing night safaris, and boating excursions around the lake as well as to beautiful Crescent Island for spectacular bird watching. Other popular activities include horse riding, village visits and tours to several impressive neighbouring national parks.
