Crescent Island And Lake Naivasha Day Trip Tour Description
Crescent Island Game Sanctuary is a must-see on the eastern side of Lake Naivasha. With its wide variety of wildlife, such as giraffes, waterbucks, elands, wildebeests, zebras, impalas and hippos – this conservation area is packed with adventure!
Not to mention the birds offering you a wonderful serenade – fish eagles, ospreys, lily-trotters and many more. And if that’s not enough for you thrill seekers out there – the island has plenty activities to offer like boat riding, mountain climbing, hiking, rock climbing and even biking or bird watching for those who want to take it slow.
The shorelines are also populated with pelicans cormorants and majestic fish-eagles that make their presence known with their beautiful calls. Plus there are more animals per acre than any other Kenyan Park – so it’s no surprise why film companies flock here to capture all these wonderfully grazing herds of Wildebeeste Waterbuck Zebra and Gazelle.
Finally the best part about Crescent Island: no fences! This gives wildlife from mainland access when they lose habitats due to development and population growth – plus you get close encounters with our night time grazers…the lovely Hippos!
