Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake located in the Kenyan area of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, near Nairobi. The lake has a variety of wildlife, but the hippo population is the most impressive. It’s a great place to get up close to the napping hippos by boat.
When you know what hippos are capable of and how fast they move, it was a little stressful to get that close to them! And the hippos often roam the lakeside properties at night (which is likely where you’ll stay), while foraging for food, so be careful.
