Recently returned from a Best of Kenya Safari booked through REAL AFRICA in the UK (a company we would highly recommend).
What a lovely place the Navaisha Simba Lodge is. The accommodation, set in large and lovely maintained grounds, is first-class with a nice swimming pool area to relax in when not taking in the sights of the lake areas. Among many other plus - points was the food which was varied and of excellent quality.
As a game viewing location, Lake Naivasha is of course a completely different experience where flamingos and hippos and bird-life in general take the place of elephant, rhino and the big game of reserves such as Amboseli, Samburu and the Masai Mara. To enjoy it properly, you really need to take a boat trip although it is also possible to take a short guided walk beyond the lodge perimeter an join the warthogs, giraffe and other species. (Don't forget to tip the lodge guide a couple of hundred shillings).
We stayed two nights here and on the second day our itinerary included a 90 minute trip to the nearby Lake Nakuru reserve which was well worth it. Had this not been included, then two days at Naivasha alone might have been too much for us - unless we had intended to take a break from “safari-ing” by spend a relaxing day just chilling out by the pool etc.
