Lahai Main House

Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Naivasha, Rift Valley Province
The property sits in 25 acres of beautiful gardens, managed bush walks and unrivaled views, with not another property to be seen. It is renown for its peace, tranquility and bird-life, yet is within a community of 15 different nationalities, who share the same love of africa. It is ideal taken in conjunction with the cottages, as you can all eat together whilst having your own space.

Being fully staffed all the normal chores of life are catered for. It is only 5 minutes from the Great Rift Valley Hotel, Conference Centre and Golf Resort, where there is a good restaurant and all the usual facilities. There is also a convenience store in the Pro shop, where you can get everything except fresh fruit and veg.

Green Park is strategically placed for many day trips around Lake Navaisha, to the National Parks of Nakuru,
Hells Gate and M...

About the neighbourhood
Green Park is pivotal to a range of day trips and amenities.
Apart from the 18 Hole championship course 5 minutes from the house, and our own pool and tennis court, the area is renown for its bird and wild life.

Lake Navaisha is 3 miles below the house, and a muram road circumnavigates the Lake, which is about a 3 hours drive. There are a number of day trips you can do from boating to see the pelicans and hippos, enjoying the giraffes and plain's game at Crater Lake over lunch on a small floating restaurant, to Elsemere House, the home of Joy Adamson or a trip around Hells Gate National Park to see the wild life. There are also several private conservation parks, which are well worth a visit.

Navaisha, 40 mins away, has the usual african curio shops and a large supermarket.

How to get there
Airport: Jomo Kenyatta, Nairobi: 100.0 km
Railway: Nairobi: 100.0 km
Ferry: Mombasa: 600.0 km
Lahai is on the north coast of Lake Navaisha about 1.5 hours drive or 20 mins by air from Nairobi. It sits on the north side of the spectacular Rift Valley at about 7,000 ft. The Owner can recommend car/safari vehicle hire, although for cost and peace of mind, it is recommended to take a driver, which is often less than self drive, who also acts as a guide. He can stay in the staff quarters at Lahai. Such a vehicle is not expensive.
There are four airlines that fly direct from Europe, BA , Air France and KLM. There are numerous routes with stopovers and usually a little cheaper. It is always better to try and arrive in Kenya in the morning, so that you can get up country in the day. Night time arrivals would necessitate an overnight stay in Nairobi.
