Broad yet shallow, Lake Naivasha lays claim to a unique history, having entirely dried up at the beginning of the 20th century, only to reappear years later, brought back to life by heavy rains. Beautiful and serene in the daytime, the lake’s waters are often whipped into dramatic waves by late afternoon thundershowers. This turbulent characteristic led to the local Maasai naming the lake Na’iposha, meaning “rough water”.
Two smaller lakes, Oloidien and the bright green crater lake of Sonachi lie nearby. The shores of the lake form part of Hell’s Gate National Park, named for its huge red cliffs and the bubbling thermal springs that they shelter.
