Kiangazi House lies within a wildlife corridor connecting the lake shore and environs with Hells Gate National Park and beyond into the Masailand. Adjacent to Kiangazi House is the private 20,000 acre Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary complete with a diversity of wildlife including rhino, leopard, cheetah, Grevy’s zebra, giraffe, kudu and hyena. Game drives can be arranged here or, for those wishing to venture further afield, it is possible to arrange a whole day trip in the lodges 4×4 vehicles to Lake Nakuru National Park. With delightful lush gardens littered with colour, rolling lawns and a view to compliment the beautiful setting, it’s ironic that “Kiangazi” is the Swahili word meaning “hot and dry season”. This delightful country house overlooks Oloidien Bay and part of Lake Naivasha.
With a library and huge fireplace it is an ideal place to relax in. Or, for the more energetic, there is a tennis court which overlooks the corridor route taking wildlife to water at the lakes edge. A salt lick and water hole is excellently located at the bottom of the garden for animals to congregate at.
Set amongst beautiful lush gardens and tended lawns, this homestead has truly breathtaking views of unspoilt Africa. Accommodation consists of 5 rooms. Each room has its own distinctive character with en-suite bathroom. All of the beds are four-poster surrounded in netting. Three of the rooms (1 twin, 2 doubles) are inside the main house, one of these being the Ibis suite which has its own fireplace and mini-bar.
2 new garden rooms are situated outside the main house and have their own private verandas. (3 smaller annex rooms can be made available for larger groups).
Highly trained professional chefs deliver an exquisite array of cuisine. Fresh vegetables and dairy products are produced on the farm nearby and therefore obtained daily.
A swimming pool is creatively blended into the surrounding garden.
Situated with panoramic views across the Great Rift Valley and the shimmering waters of Lake Naivasha, Kiangazi House is a superb place to relax before or after your safari. Picnic breakfasts and lunch can be organised so that the whole day can be spent exploring the park. Below the house guests can explore the lake shoreline with its masses of waterbirds, it is also possible to take a boat on the lake.
Game Drives – Guests at Kiangazi House can experience their own private and exclusive game drives with our experienced guides. There is an abundance of wildlife that live within the security of the 20,000 acre Sanctuary its’ surroundings and along miles of un-spoilt lakefront.
Bush Walks – Walking around Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary’s lake frontage allows Ornithologist’s and Game Viewers to interact with the diverse range of species on a more personal level, whilst stretching ones legs. The game corridor is a strip of land comprising approximately 5,000 acres that allows wildlife from Hells Gate National Park, access to the lake.
Sundowners – After a fantastic game drive in the wildlife sanctuary or lake front, stop by a roaring log fire and watch the sun set with a glass of wine in your hand. The African night brings to life a different world, Hyena’s cries echo in the bush, Hippo’s emerge from the water and Leopards start their nightly prowls; enjoy all this and more from the safety of your campfire before a night drive takes you back to the lodge for a delicious dinner.
Boat Trips – These allow an entirely different perspective on the lakes ecosystem. Vast Papyrus swamps can be viewed or alternatively one can try their hand at fishing for Black Bass.
