Crater Lake Game Sanctuary, Naivasha

#4 of 7 in Things to do in Naivasha
Relax in the pristine nature at Crater Lake Game Sanctuary, a private reserve surrounding a scenic jade-green caldera lake. A great getaway from Nairobi, the area attracts tourists as well as large numbers of pink flamingos. Hike along a trail, circle the lake's rim, and venture on a jeep safari to see zebras, buffalo, giraffes, and wildebeests. Fringed with acacias, the lake is believed to help ailing cattle. See if you can identify some of the 150 bird species in the forests surrounding the serene waters. Leopards, servals, and caracals have also been spotted on guided tours.
