THE GREAT RIFT VALLEY
The Great Rift Valley
As you drop down into the Rift Valley, your first views are of Mount Longonot and Lake Naivasha, a beautiful freshwater lake fringed by thick papyrus. Hell's Gate National Park lies beside the lake and the park gets its name from the massive red tinged cliffs framing a geothermically active interior of steam vents and bubbling springs.
Further down you find Lake Elementaita, a small soda lake nestled in the eastern sweep of the Great Rift Valley. Renowned for its thousands of pink flamingos, Lake Nakuru also boasts frequent leopard and rhino sightings. Lake Bogoria is truly beautiful, surrounded by volcanic ranges that stretch as far as the eye can see. The soda waters of Lake Baringo attract massive flocks of flamingos while the western shore is lined with spouting geysers - the spurting steam, bubbling geothermal pools and fresh water springs attract an abundance of birds and wildlife.

Where to Stay
You will note that we present our accommodation options in a slightly different way, Instagram style. You won't find lengthy descriptions and information on how many hair dryers there are in your bedroom. We let the pictures do the talking. We prefer to get to know you, your likes and your quotation will include our detailed hotel recommendations and information (including hairdryers!).
