Crater Lake Game Sanctuary is located about 6 miles (10 km) from Naivasha and about 56 miles (90 km) from Nairobi. This small, private sanctuary is centered around a lake formed by a dormant volcano. The amazing jade green water attracts many flamingos, and the surrounding forests and plains have plenty of game.

The nature trails in the sanctuary lead around the crater through vegetation with plenty of wildlife, including over 150 species of birds. Besides the impressive numbers of birds recorded here, zebras, giraffes, and other plains wildlife are also regular residents. On this private 8-hour tour you will have a chance to see many of them.

Know More about this tour

Crater Lake is a green, high-alkaline lake at the bottom of an extinct volcano. This 10,000 acre game sanctuary is great fun to explore on foot independently or with a local guide. The area is alive with hundreds of species of birds and many mammals, large and small. While walking through the conservancy, you can spot gazelle, giraffe, zebra, eland, baboon, and black-and-white colobus monkeys - just to name a few.

You can also take the short walk to the rim of the beautiful volcanic crater and admire the views down to the emerald-green lake in the crater. Depending on the water levels of other Rift Valley lakes, there are sometimes large populations of flamingos on the lake.

    My husband and I are huge Born Free supporters so absolutely wanted to do this trip. It is so beautiful and serene. The lunch was lovely and the boat trip was amazing, we got to see hippos and lovely birds too. It does take a bit of time to get there but the journey is broken up by a an opportunity to see the great Rift Valley.
