Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort Naivasha

From its panoramic perch above Lake Naivasha, the Great Rift Valley Lodge enjoys one of humankind’s oldest views – over the sweeping floor of the world’s largest valley.The lodge is located about 7000 ft (2130m) above sea level, on Ol Donyo Opurru, Maa for “mountain of smoke”. This elevation enjoys 360° vistas that stretch from the sparkling waters of Lake Naivasha to the jagged volcanic crater of Mount Longonot, to the Ol Donyo Opurru (or Ebburu) Hills, and beyond to the shoulders of the Aberdare Mountains and Forest. The Lodge is an ideal alternative to a city hotel, a perfect weekend getaway, and an ideal safari stopover between Masai Mara and Samburu, two of Kenya’s most famous game reserves.

Since it opened in 2000, the Great Rift Valley Golf Course has earned a reputation as one of the most challenging and breathtakingly beautiful of all Africa’s championship courses.

Set on the slopes of a small dormant volcano with unspoilt scenery in all directions, most holes on this course enjoy stunning views of mountains, plains, lakes and both escarpments of the Rift Valley itself. The 18-hole course is laid out around the Great Rift Valley Lodge and along the fairways are 80 generously spaced privately owned homes, some of which are let out to hotel guests.
