Loldia House - a little gem on Lake Naivasha

We chose to stay at Loldia House for the last four nights at the end of a wonderfully exciting and interesting three week itinerary. We had already enjoyed weeks of energetic activity, including many game drives elsewhere, so we were really just looking for a few days of R&R in beautiful and relaxing surroundings. Loldia House perfectly fitted the bill.

We had privacy and seclusion in a cottage in the lovely, lakeside gardens. The main house provided all the comforts of a mature family home, with a pleasant drawing room for aperitifs and chat before dinner (make sure to look at the fascinating family album on the piano) and an elegant dining room for sociable dining each evening. Breakfast and lunch al fresco on the lawn outside. The staff were all wonderfully attentive and, during our visit, our host was the hugely knowledgeable Dave Richards, who seemingly knows everything there is to know about Africa's birds and wildlife and has written many books on the subject.

Our wonderful, calm and patient driver/guide Juma had a similarly encyclopaedic knowledge of birds and wildlife and is apparently blessed with telescopic vision, being able to spot tiny creatures during our several excursions locally and around Lake Naivasha. Juma also magicked up two first rate picnic lunches for us on our various outings. We did a final, long day drive north up to Lake Nakuru National Park in order to tick off the one remaining elusive character of the Big Five, and were rewarded by sightings of both white and black rhino.

The perfect end to a wonderful holiday!

Loldia House and Lake Nakuru N.P.

Very nice place to stay as a start to a Kenyan safari being within a sensible drive (<3hrs) from Nairobi's International airport.

We were made very welcome on arrival - appreciating the snack we were offered to see us on to lunchtime. The location is lovely - on the fringes of Lake Naivasha - and the house has extensive (private) grounds with its own wildlife. Our semi-detached bungalow was spacious and well presented. In truth we didn't really need the hot water bottles and fire that were set for us at night, but no doubt there are cooler evenings and they were a nice touch. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful throughout.

The day trip to Lake Nakuru N.P. was worth the journey - between two and a half and three hours each way - with good sightings of rhino and Rothchild's Giraffe and a real treat - tree climbing lions (mum and two cubs). Watching a White and a Black rhino having a pushing match was fun (and not seen before by us) There are not many flamingoes there nowadays, but we did see both Lesser and Greater along with many other species of water bird.
