Lake Naivasha National Park

Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake, fringed by thick papyrus.

The lake is almost 13kms across, but its waters are shallow with an average depth of five meters.

Lake area varies greatly according to rainfall, with an average range between 114 and 991 sq kms.

Afternoon wind and storms can cause the Lake to become suddenly rough and produce high waves.

For this reason, the local Masai christened the lake Nai’posha meaning ”rough water”, which the British later misspelled as Naivasha.

More About Lake Naivasha National Park

Much of the lake is surrounded by forests of the yellow barked Acacia Xanthophlea, known as the yellow fever tree.

These forests abound with bird life, and Naivasha is known as a world class birding.

The waters of the lake draw a great range of game to her shores.

Giraffes wander among the acacia, Buffalo wallow in the swamps .

Colobus monkeys & other primates  call from the treetops while the Lakes large hippo population sleeps the day out in the shallows.

The region surrounding the Lake is well worth exploring.

There are two smaller lakes nearby, Oloidien, and Sonachi, a bright green cater lake.

Hell’s Gate National Park lies beside the lake.

This Park was named for its pair of massive red tinged cliffs framing a geothermically active interior of steam vents and bubbling springs.

The park is home to a profusion of plains game and birdlife. Walking is permitted, making it ideal for hiking, biking, and rock climbing.
