Unwind

It's a very nice place to unwind. You get to mingle with giraffes, water bucks, wildebeests, zebras. It's a complete park. Otherwise it can get boring after an hour or so

The entrance fees are quite steep -- only a bit less than what you pay for some of the major game parks. There are a variety of animals to see in a small area, but only the common herbivores -- giraffe, impala, buffalo, zebra. A variety of birds. We didn't see hippos. The big upside versus the game parks is... More

The boat ride was Lake Naivasha - hippos and hundreds of pelicans, among other birds - was an experience by itself, but paled in comparison to the walking safari on Crescent Island. Being on foot adds a tremendous component to getting close to wild animals.

We took a boat road on Lake Naivasha, which was surprisingly enjoyable--tons of gorgeous birds, hippos, etc. We pulled up alongside Crescent Island Game Park, and I wish I'd had the opportunity to actually walk on the island. I had an eery feeling of encountering Eden--there were two figures walking in the distance through the landscape, occasionally spooking zebras and... More

Nothing beats walking with the wildlife along this beautiful peninsula. The knowledgeable guides showed us around, telling us what all the animals, birds and trees were. It was an incredible experience!

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable moment as we got to the Island via boat from Lake Naivasha Resort Hotel. We got to see giraffes amongst other wild animals grazing on the island and also witnessed an ancient house that has been there for decades which still has the family living in it.

A Small Island in the middle of Lake Naivasha. This is also a place where the movie 'Out Of Africa' was shot. Has a lot of wildlife, can be accessed by boat from the mainland, then a special guide will guide you on foot. A very interesting experience.

All 10 of us took a boat ride over from Lake Naivasha Lodge and went on a guided hike on the peninsula. We got so close to the giraffes/zebras and saw herds of wildebeest and Cape buffalo as well as other animals. On our way back, our boat driver got us close to the hippos sunning themselves. Only thing we... More

Walking freely among the animals was one of the greatest experiences of my life, standing up close to giraffes. Hardly saw anyone else during the 3 hours on the island and loved it. Many skeletons and rotting carcasses of the ground though.
