Lake Naivasha National Park
Located about 100 km from Nairobi the lake is a recreation centre for the Nairobi City dwellers. Activities include boating, water sports and fishing. The lakeside is used for growing high quality flowers and other horticultural products for the export market. This lake is a bird watchers paradise and has over 300 species which have been sighted.
The bird life is more generous from October to March but the African fish Eagle, whose hunting skills remain as an attraction for the lake visitors, takes pride of place. A visit to the nearby Hell's Gate National Park where dramatic rock formations provide spectacular scenery on which to photograph animals such as the giraffe, zebra, gazelle, and water-buck, is recommended. For the rock climbers, the rock formations provide a formidable challenge.
