Lake Naivasha's hippos

A boat ride on tranquil Lake Naivasha will bring you closer to the lake’s most famed residents: hippos.  They’re in glorious abundance here and to see them yawning wide or with ears flickering as they amble heavy set in and out of the lake is a strangely comic spectacle, as is their curious selves popping up in the water from behind a sliver of surface nostril as you pass. The lake is also renowned for Elsemere, the home of Joy Adamson of Born Free fame, and its colonies of black and white colobus monkeys.
