Loldia House *****
Location: Loldia House is an original Kenyan home set on an old farm on the shores of Lake Naivasha. Idyllically situated on the quiet north-western end of the lake, this is the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley. Loldia House is only a two hour drive from Nairobi and is within easy reach of Nairobi’s International Airport. It is also conveniently located for day trips to the famous Lake Nakuru National Park. There are daily flights on Governors’ Aviation direct from Nairobi to Loldia House and then on to the Masai Mara, making it the perfect place from which to begin or end your exciting safari holiday around Kenya.
Accommodation: Loldia House offers a choice of accommodation either in the old family house or in cottages in the grounds. In the main house, there is one en-suite double room. Close by are three other guest cottages (each housing two separate rooms, all en-suite), surrounded by pretty gardens and offering incredible views across the lake to the extinct volcano, Mount Longonot. Up on the hill is the specially built Top Cottage, which has three double bedrooms and its own sitting room with an open log fire, making it ideal for families or close friends travelling together. The vista from up here is stupendous!
Room amenities: Please note that a lovely range of ‘Cinnabar Green’ toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap and body lotion) is provided in the rooms. These products are refilled into reusable metal canisters so as to reduce on plastic waste. They are also handmade in Kenya with natural ingredients and are therefore in keeping with the sensitive environment in which we operate. The accommodation urge you to please use their products rather than your own. These toiletries are supplied for the duration of your stay with them, and if you would like to buy some to take onwards with you, they sell the full range in the gift shop.
