Lake Naivasha camps - Hippo Point Private Estate & Wildlife Sanctuary

Hippo Point Private Estate & Wildlife Sanctuary

This is possibly the oddest place you could stay on a visit to Kenya. Quite literally, a sprawling Elizabethan mansion complete with an eight-storey wooden folly, all furnished with turn of the century antiques....in Africa. The property, built in 1933 and beautifully restored in 1998, is now owned by the Cunningham-Reids and is really quite a phenomenon. A stay here is more about just being in these unusual surroundings and enjoying the pool, grounds, birdlife and walks available in the immediate area. For longer stays, there are trips to Hell's Gate, a Mt Longonot climb or boat trips. Meals here are always excellent and range from champagne breakfasts, informal picnics or buffets by the pool to formal private dining. Waterbuck, zebra and impala often wonder through the grounds and are habituated so it's possible to walk amongst the animals. Hippos also graze in the gardens and night. For those that need pampering, there is yoga, massage and other beauty treatments on offer.Incl. FB, drinks, laundry, airstrip transfers, estate game drives, walks, mountain biking, boating on Lake Naivasha. Excl. Water skiing, additional activities.
