Taking the boat to the island is easy to arrange, and a 1.5 hour trip should cost aroung 3000Kshs. The submerged trees with the birds, the hippos, and the beautiful surroundings of the lake are worth seeing. Walking the island with all the animals around is simply wonderful. Highly recommended!

I was in Kenya on a mission trip, so there wasn't opportunity for a overnight safari. This was a fun and educational morning. There are no vehicles, it is solely walking. We saw zebras, antelope, gazelles, giraffes, wildebeest and white pelicans. My son was able to get close enough to a giraffe to get a "selfie" with it! Beautiful scenery,... More

Not as much game as we thought there would be and not as much as we saw at Crater Lake. A few giraffe, wildebeest, buffalo, water buck, zebra, gazelle, velvet monkey. Really lovely view of the whole lake from the ridge.

This was our second visit to crescent Island. For some reason the boat operator took us there at midday. It was extremely hot, and we walked for 90 minutes in the blazing sun to see very little. All the animals had retreated to the shade in the wooded part of the Island. I would recommend just doing the boat trip,on... More

I must admit I have never been as close to wildlife as i was in crescent Island and mind you these animals are not caged they roam freely around the Island. The guides were also really knowledgeable and articulate they really gave us lots of facts about the animals there. As for the boat rides they were thrilling especially when... More
