Naivasha is a thriving market town on the northern shore of the large freshwater rift valley lake - Lake Naivasha. The town and its lake, is less than 100 kms (an hour by vehicle) from Kenya's capital city Nairobi. Naivasha Town has many facilities including modern supermarkets, banks, petrol stations, a post office, several tourist class hotels and restaurants, as well as numerous other shops, services, and several markets.
Naivasha is well located, and has easy road access to a number of landmark sites in Kenya. Going East to Nairobi you climb up hill to the spectacular Rift Valley views - where the savannah plains spread before you. Going West you pass several Lodges at the next rift valley lake - Lake Elementaita - a World Heritage site. Then in less than an hour you have reached Nakuru - Kenya's fourth largest town - with its volcanic rift valley lake and National Park. Heading North out of Naivasha you will reach the mountain ridges of Aberdares National Park with its abundant game and famous Treetops Lodge.
Lake Naivasha itself is home to further attractions including oft spotted Zebra, Giraffe, Antelope, Hippos, monkeys, rock hyrax, and many and abundant species of birdlife.
Around the Lake there are world class Lodges and Resorts; flower and agri farms; several private game reserves; and the geo thermal plant of Ken Gen.
Access to 'Hells Gate' National Park can be found off the South Lake Road and there is a second National Park further along the Mai-Mahiu tarmac road - Mount Longonot National Park.
