Adventure and Wildlife

We have some exciting adventure activities for you to consider and a diverse array of flora and fauna to discover, meaning there are many ways to explore the forest.

With a range of designated walking and mountain biking trails to follow, you can find yourself deep in the forest before breakfast.

 

Or, you might like to find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy the tranquillity and sounds of the forest. 

 

There is also the option of trekking deeper into the Eburru Forest Reserve. Here you will experience the high canopy, steep valleys and wide volcanic craters.

For those wildlife enthusiasts, finding tracks and signs of the elusive forest wildlife is always exciting, and with hides and water holes strategically positioned, we hope you might catch a glimpse of our forest inhabitants.

 

Resident to the forest are bushbuck, zebra, common duiker, buffalo, guereza (black and white) colobus monkey, blue monkey. Also found but more inconspicuous are leopard, spotted hyena, bush pig, porcupine, genet, hyrax and galago. Further up in the forest, the mountain bongo and giant forest hog are present. The mountain bongo being a critically endangered species.

With 188 species of bird, it is definitely worth taking some time to observe the variety and array of colour on offer.

 

Spend some time looking up into the canopy and you might just see a crowned eagle, a long-crested eagle or a Hartlaub's touraco.

Aside from the forest, you might choose to spend time on or around Lake Naivasha, which, at the foot of the mountain, is a very different ecosystem altogether.

 

The Lake is home to a different set of bird species including ibis, kingfishers and fish eagles. 

 

Whilst on the shores of the lake, guests are likely to see herds of grazing and browsing wildlife such as impala, zebra, gazelle, buffalo, warthog and giraffe, and pods of hippopotamus wallowing in the shallows.
