The Sanctuary is home to a wide variety of animals, including cape buffalo, eland, impala, giraffe, wart hogs and many others. While most people do a driving safari through the sanctuary, you are able to hike. This, of course, is at your own risk. Our favorite activity is to include a picnic. We scope out an open area, where we... More

My sons, a friend and i visited Crater lake game sanctuary during the Easter holidays this year and it was good. we paid a little fee at the reception and took off to view animals.We were privileged to see wild animals such as zebras,giraffes,the shy warthog and gazelles .We enjoyed the game drive,however the structures at the restaurant require renovations.

Monkeys, giraffes, zebras, baboons,gazelles and so many other animals to see up close. It was great to see so many colombard monkeys in all their black and white glory in such a safe environment.

We were led by a knowledgable guide around Crater Lake and through the reserve. There are no major threats, so you can walk it which is great fun. The animals are diverse and encountered often throughout the walk. We saw masai giraffes, olive baboons, zebra, and colobus monkeys... just to name a few. The bird life was also fantastic to... More

While the restaurant on the lake seems to have seen better days, the three-hour hike around the crater was a fantastic experience. Apart from a few steep hills right after the start, the rest of the track is fairly easy to walk. We brought along our two three-year olds and they had no problems completing this hike. The track is... More

The folks at the Fish Eagle Inn, where we were staying, recommended that we see the Crater Lake Game Sanctuary and also recommended a guide - John Ndirangu of Rift Travels. It was fantastic! Within... More

It was very cold and the bathroom could not drain the water. There was nothing special about the food..and the staff are not very friendly. But alteast the... More
