Enjoy the cool air and vast expanse of water at Lake Naivasha, a large freshwater lake surrounded by greenery and trickling out of the Njorowa Gorge. At 1,890 m (6,200 ft) above sea level, the lake stands at the highest point of the Kenyan Rift. A combination of volcanic rock and later sedimentary deposits, it supports a variety of wildlife, including a large presence of hippos and bearded vultures. Long-tailed and great cormorants, kingfishers, and pelicans gather to feed on carp, black bass, crayfish, and a variety of other fish species.
