NAIROBI TO LAKE NAIVASHA DAY-TOUR WITH CRESCENT ISLAND

LAKE NAIVASHA AND CRESCENT ISLAND DAY TRIP SUMMARY

Enjoy the Nairobi to Lake Naivasha day-tour with crescent island safari with Kichaka Tours and Travel. Surrounded by the beautiful lake Naivasha, Crescent Island Game Sanctuary is an island on the eastern side of Lake Naivasha. A haven for giraffes, water-bucks and hippos are among the wildlife one is likely to find at the conservancy. Walking/hiking, photography, yoga, bird watching, team building or fishing, Crescent Island is the perfect place for fresh air and isolation.

Located on Lake Naivasha, in the Great Rift Valley, Kenya, It is one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya and is Naivasha’s best-kept secret. Surrounded by water, it is actually a peninsula and is currently only accessible by boat.

Birds include the fish eagles, ospreys, lily-trotters and many more. You get to enjoy fun activities offered by resorts in the island such as boat riding, mountain climbing and hiking. The shores host abundant bird-life including pelicans, cormorants and fish-eagles with their haunting cry. There are more animals per acre than any other Kenyan Park, hence many film companies have been to the Island to film the herds of Wildebeests, Waterbuck, Zebra and Gazelle.

The island is not fenced to allow the wildlife on the mainland to come in as they lose their habitat to development and the ever increasing population. Hippo graze all over us at night then sleep under the acacia or rest in the water by day. The giraffe who were born on the island return to give birth; sometimes you see 3 generations at a time. Hyena come to hunt at night but are not resident on the island, the many python who do live here can be seen occasionally with a kill. Nairobi to Lake Naivasha Day-tour with Crescent Island finally ends back in Nairobi.
