They put fresh roses in the room in the morning and cover your bed with a freshly-sprayed mosquito net at night. What more could you ask of a lodge in Africa? There are knowledgeable guides who will take you to see whatever wildlife you might want to see. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious and plentiful and the bar is well-stocked. The décor calls to mind turn of the century colonization, but it is very luxurious "wilderness" accommodation indeed. We could see zebras from the pool and giraffes from our balcony. We went on a hippo walk at night. Great place!

Last night we arrived at our nicest stop thus far, Lake Naivasha Crescent Camp. What a luxury it was to spend a night in those comfy beds, take a hot shower with consistent water pressure, and eat several delicious meals. Not mention today we got to go on not only a boat safari on the lake (saw a lot of birds, hippos, and a python), but a walking safari on Crescent Island ...
... too many drowsy anti histamines and coating myself in cream (my rash has just consistently gotten worse), we had a late breakfast at 8.30am and started to make our way back to Hotel Boulevard in Nairobi, where it all began.
We stopped on the way at a different Rift Valley view point which was beautiful as it was again such a sunny clear day. The weather has been amazing, it's only rained twice and that has only been overnight.

Mt Longonot and Lake Naivasha
We were up at seven in time for a family style breakfast with Dea and her grandson from Nairobi.
James picked us up at 8:30 and we headed for Mt Longonot, a quiet volcano (last eruption was 1863). When we arrived at Mt Longonot Park, we hired a guide named Joseph and started the casual walk seeing a few animals in the distance. It looks like a pretty easy stroll ...
... his scent they stay away, what a load of rubbish! This put a damper on the rest of the tour, but we did see a couple of hippo family's (with babies), and some lovely birds. Wasn't worth the $25usd we spent though. Dinner tonight was a traditional Kenyan meal which was all made by our guide and driver joe and Patrick. It was delish and included roasted goat, chippati, home made salsa, cabbage, silver beat and more ugli. Then it was another eve spent around the campfire ...
