Loldia House is an original Kenyan home set on an old farm on the shores of Lake Naivasha. At Loldia House you’ll experience the life of Kenya’s early settlers. Loldia House is an ideal spot to relax, taste the pleasures of Kenyan country life and explore the Great Rift Valley.
The colonial masonry architecture reflects an early settler style that luxuriously extends into the indoor common areas and 9 guest rooms. The four double en-suite rooms in the Main House feature muted color palettes that brilliantly accentuate the understated elegance of dressing tables, thatch and corrugated roofs, nightstands with lamps and chairs. Most rooms are positioned to provide views of the wild grounds and lake upon wakening, and private outdoor verandahs with lounging chairs invite quiet relaxation and conversation with a glass of wine. For guests who desire a secluded family trip to Lake Naivasha, the lodge also offers a three-room cottage on an elevated hill that features expansive views, sitting area and fireplace. Also available is the original cottage close to the Main House that hosts two separate en-suite bedrooms and is surrounded by exotic, native flowers. Couples find the dual honeymoon guest cottage on the lakeshore a perfect setting to bond on a romantic Kenyan vacation getaway in Naivasha. The staff provide premier quality of service and go to great lengths to help you feel at home without being intrusive. The grounds are impeccably maintained and wildlife roam freely on the ranch.
Start your day watching local fisherman sail across the lake from the comfort of your bed. A soft knock on the door lets you know that another day of your incredible East African lake vacation has begun. The aroma of freshly brewed tea and coffee fill your room as you prepare for a morning game activity on Loldia Ranch. Spend the morning with an experienced guide that takes you to see hippos, zebras, elands, giraffes and other large mammals. You also gain key insight about the 450 avian species that are nesting, feeding and hunting around the lake grounds. A garden breakfast under a fig tree awaits you at the Main House, and you spend the remainder of your morning lounging on your veranda. After lunch, relax with a book, explore the farm or take a rejuvenating nap. Afternoon tea reawakens you for a late day birdwatching tour of Lake Naivasha, boat ride, evening game drive on the ranch, tour of a local flower farm or a visit to Loldia School.
The excitement of an activity-packed Kenyan rift valley safari at Loldia House will surely leave you ready for sundowners and a delicious dinner before retiring.
