The Governor’s Loldia House is set on the shores of Lake Naivasha, a sleek luxurious retreat shielded by Acacia trees. With a colonial influence in design, the stone house and cottages house 9 rooms in total, each with en suite bathrooms and English-style furnishings. Meals of aromatic fresh seafood are served under a fig tree outdoors, in old British style. Time may be spent getting familiar with the farm or taking boat rides and bird watching on Lake Naivasha.
Loldia House you’ll experience the life of Kenya’s early settlers. It is an ideal spot to relax, taste the pleasures of Kenyan country life and explore the Great Rift Valley. There are beautiful views of the dormant volcano, Mount Longonot. Wild animals roam free on the farm and in the evenings hippo munch quietly by the waterside. Britain’s Country Life Magazine even described Peter, Loldia’s Manager as "probably the best butler in the world". Loldia House is only a two hour drive from Nairobi and within easy reach of Nairobi’s International Airport. It is a perfect place from which to begin your exciting safari holiday around Kenya. It is also conveniently located for day trips to the famous Lake Nakuru National Park. There are now also daily flights on Safari Link Aviation direct from Loldia House to the Masai Mara.

A newly-built cottage on the lakeshore, which is ideal for honeymooners, has two independent en-suite double rooms with breathtaking views across the lake to the extinct volcano, Mount Longonot. Up on the hill is the specially built Loldia cottage, which has its own sitting room with open log fire and panoramic views across the lake, and three double rooms, making it ideal for families or groups of friends.
