Lake Naivasha Country Club
Lake Naivasha Country Club is located in The Great
Rift Valley which is 100 km from Nairobi. The hotel
offers a wonderful mix of tranquility in serene
surrounding and a varied number of sporting activities
both for energetic and more laid back.
Lake Naivasha is one of the Great Rift Valley's jewels,
reflecting the tranquil beauty of an African sky and the
surrounding mountains, sometimes the lake is temporarily
distorted as flocks of graceful flamingoes and
pink-backed pelicans settle of the water. This fresh
water lake, some 13 kms across is a haven for bird
watchers, nature lovers, artists and for those seeking a
peaceful scenic retreat.
Lake Naivasha Country Club was previously known as Lake
Hotel, this attractive Country Club, sited in 55 acres
of lake side gardens, began life in the 1930s as papyrus
thatched chalets. Although the current accommodation is
a far cry from the original structure, the Club has
certainly not lost any of its charm. There is a choice
of rooms, cottages or suites all furnished with their
own individual theme. The old comfortable architecture
is solid and comfortable with a variety of accommodation
in 50 Twin Rooms and 1 Executive Lake Cottage; facing
the rolling lawns and the lake.
Lunch most days at he Lake Naivasha Country Club is
al fresco, beneath the shade of some magnificent acacia
and pepper trees. After a day in the fresh air, a
Naivasha cocktail beside the roaring log fire in the
residents lounge sets the pace for an enjoyable evening.
Guests can look forward to a "home-grown" dinner
prepared only from the freshest lake side ingredients.
And between the Club's legendary meals, there is
plenty to do to build up an appetite - walking amongst
the game on nearby Crescent Island, fishing for bass and
tilapia, bird watching by boat with one of our
knowledgeable guides, climbing Mt Longonot, trekking
through the gorges of Hell's Gate National Park, and
visiting 'Elsamere', once home of the famous authoress,
Joy Adamson and her beloved 'Born Free' lion. Then, of
course there is always the swimming pool for catching up
on a tan, a novel and a few lengths.
