Lake Naivasha: A Beautiful Setting for Some White Mischief

Lake Naivasha is one of the Rift Valley’s few fresh water lakes and is very popular with Nairobi residents as it is only around an hour and a half’s drive from the city. The pleasant lush green surrounding of the lake have made it popular for one night safari stopovers and there are now many different lodges to choose from on the lake shores.

The lake and its yellow fever tress are so attractive that it lured a group of settlers to build their homes on the lake shore. Known collectively as ‘White Mischief’ these settlers were internationally famous for their decadent, hedonistic lifestyle. A 1987 movie starring Greta Schacci was based on a notorious society murder set during this time.

As well as the ‘interesting’ history the lake has many attractions for the modern-day visitor including boat trips to crescent island.  The lake, like many of its Rift Valley sisters, is alive with birdlife and often referred to as a birder’s paradise. For much of the year its surface is covered with pink flamingos.

As the lake is so easily accessible it is most worth a visit.
