Lake Naivasha, Kenya
One of Kenya’s oldest colonial homesteads, Loldia House immerses visitors in the atmosphere of yesteryear. Wooden beams, antique furniture, afternoon tea served on the lawn...there’s a glamour and grandeur to staying here, one that always has us wanting to return.
The house is set on a sprawling private farm, where wild animals live alongside livestock. You’ll enjoy a succession of intriguing sights, although the real safari charms come from game drives in nearby Hell’s Gate or even Lake Nakuru national parks. Don’t miss the opportunity for a nighttime drive though, which regularly encounters elusive hunters like aardvarks and bat-eared foxes. You certainly won’t miss the hippos; their raucous antics will be a constant throughout your stay.
We’re captivated by how an old-world style can blur into Kenyan safari wilderness; colobus monkeys swing past while you’re fine dining, log fires roar as hippos are grazing, and breakfast is served beneath vast fig trees. If you’re on a tented camp holiday then one or two nights here are ideal for returning to traditional luxuries.
A wide range of activities are possible in the surrounding area, most of them half-day trips to wildlife-filled parks or spectacular volcanic remains. As such, Loldia House also works well as a leisurely multi-day stop that blends nature with relaxing activities.
