What people say

"Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake with incredible views of Mount Longonot, a dormant volcano that can be seen in the distance. The best views of Mt Longonot can be seen from Crescent Island. In the Island you can also see animals like zebra, impala, wildebeest, buffalo, waterbuck and monkeys. There are no predators in the island which makes it a perfect place for a short walking safari. Lake Naivasha is one of the best places in Kenya to see birdlife and it is well known for its hippos. If you can, I recommend you go on a boat ride in the lake."
