The Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort boasts a magnificent setting and is a leading golf resort in Kenya. It is perched on the lip of the Eburru massif, overlooking the glittering expanse of Lake Naivasha, and rests in the cradle of one of the world’s natural wonders – the Great Rift Valley. Its steaming geysers, inland seas and breathtaking flocks of flamingos are legendary, while its game-rich plains rate among the country’s top safari destinations.
Built around an 18-hole golf course, Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort is exquisitely laid out, with views stretching across the green to the lush wilderness below and the mountains beyond.
The lodge’s spacious rooms are elegantly decorated with natural materials and shades of pale, and each offers a different perspective of the beautiful scenery outside.
Accommodation is also provided in the private Longonot Villas, set amidst striking succulent gardens and crafted from wood and stone. Each two-bedroom villa spans three levels and looks onto the extinct Longonot volcano and Lake Naivasha.
The scope for activities at the Great Rift Valley Lodge is almost endless. Guests can visit the Eburru massif, where steam escaping from natural vents in the earth points to the simmering volcanic activity below; explore age-old montane forests, where the rich ecosystem attracts a myriad of birds, ranging from regal raptors to vivid sunbirds that flash iridescent through the trees; or experience the region’s diverse wildlife on horse rides, guided hikes and game drives across the fertile plains.
As the day ends, guests can enjoy exquisite sunsets, while nights bring decadent dinners, roaring campfires, the calls of nocturnal creatures and skies studded with a dazzling profusion of stars.
