The Kenya of the pioneers was a land of expansive farms, carved from the highlands and the country around the beautiful Rift Valley Lakes. The early settlers were drawn by the virgin untamed land, in those days roamed by Maasai herdsmen and wild game. Spend your safari learning about these pioneers.
With only rudimentary tools and teams of oxen, forests were cleared and fences established to open the land to herds of cattle. Although life was hard the settlers enjoyed an outdoor lifestyle, walking, riding and hunting amongst the profusion of animals and birdlife in the Great Rift Valley.
This Kenya lodging is set in lawns which are grazed at night by Hippos from the lake. Today's guest at this Kenya lodging can savour the taste of this pioneer lifestyle in the uniquely peaceful setting of Loldia House. The farm is ideally situated to visit the Flamingo lakes of Nakuru, Elementaita and Bogoria, one of the great spectacles of Africa.
Lake Nakuru also offers excellent viewing of the Black Rhino and the more elusive White Rhino amongst an abundance of other bird and wildlife and is one of the best places in Kenya to see Leopard. Lake Bogoria is also one of the few places where the rare and beautiful Greater Kudu can be seen.
Preventative malaria medication is recommended.
