Location description from owner

The Rift Valley Province region

The Rift Valley is the eighth wonder of the world. Stretching thousands of miles from Ethiopia to Mozambique, where it passes through Kenya it is at its most spectacular. Lahai is situated on the north side of the Rift, with views across to Lake Navaisha, only 3 miles away, the extinct Volcano of Mt Longonot at 9,000 ft and the Aberdare mountains at 14,000ft on the other side of the Valley.

At 7,000 ft, and 30 miles south of the equator, Lahai probably enjoys one of the best climates in the world. It is warm ( varies between 22C-32C) by day and cool (8C-16C) by night. As it is a dry heat it is extremely pleasant, and it is cool enough to ensure you sleep well at night. Because of the altitude there are basically no bugs or mosquitoes to spoil your sundowner.

Naivasha

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.
Nakuru National Park, which has everything apart from elephants, is only just over an hour away, and is an excellent day trip.

There is a private airstrip at Green Park where charters can come in from Nairobi (20 mins) or go to the Masai Mara (40 mins). At Loldia Ranch, 10 mins away, there is a daily scheduled flight in from Nairobi every day, and back via the Masai Mara.

“Great location, incredibly relaxing, versatile lovely home.”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2014

We have just returned from a fabulous break at Lahai. From the moment you walk in you are aware that this is a warm and loved family home, complete with very charming pets. The house is well designed and there are so many different areas for people to relax, either together or getting their own space. We were a mixed group with a baby, children ages 9,11 and 13, and four adults. Both the pool (heated) and tennis court are in excellent condition and we hugely enjoyed being able to use them. Mary the cook was friendly and very helpful, as were the ground staff. By the fourth day we had all just completely wound down and relaxed - sadly it was time to leave - all of us including the children would have been very happy to stay another few nights! The view is beautiful, the air very clean, and the beds were amazingly comfy! Lastly, the owner has been excellent at communicating and making us feel welcome. A brilliant get-away.

“Idyllic retreat with unbelievable views”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2014

Positioned high this relaxing retreat has unbelievable views over stunning country. The house is well laid out with lovely verandas and the pool is perfect to cool off in after a game of tennis or golf. The staff were very helpful at all times and we felt very safe within the extensive fenced grounds knowing a guard was on permanent duty over night. We could not recommend this property more highly.
