Our ReviewLoldia House nestles under ancient acacia trees, with lawns running down to Lake Naivasha. This beautiful Colonial house is the ideal place to spend the few first nights of your family holiday before heading off onto safari. The house is set in lawns, which are grazed at night by hippos from the lake. You can savour the taste of early colonial lifestyle in Loldia's uniquely peaceful setting. The farm is ideally situated to visit the flamingo lakes of Nakuru, Elementaita and Bogoria, one of the great spectacles of Africa and one that amazes children. 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. A quick note here is if your children want to see a rhino in the wild then this is the best place to do it. Lake Bogoria is one of the few places where the rare and beautiful Greater Kudu can be seen. On the farm's 6.500 acres, you can walk or ride through herds of dairy and beef cattle and a flock of farmed ostriches, interspersed with impala, waterbuck and other plains game. Boat trips are also arranged on Lake Naivasha for fishing and bird watching, and visits can be made to Hell's Gate with its spectacular canyon, hot springs and abundant wildlife. Activities can be tailor-made to suit your family. Loldia offers the highest standards of cuisine and personalised service and the House Manager, Peter Njoroge, has been described in Country Life magazine as "probably the world's best butler".
