The Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort is set on the side of the Eburru Escarpment, overlooking the waters of Lake Naivasha. The resort's location makes it a great stopover on a safari to the Masai Mara or en route to the sights of western Kenya.

Enjoy a round of championship golf on the lodge's own 18-hole course, which offers views of the volcanic crater of Mount Longonot as well as the Aberdare Mountains, mastering one of the longest holes in Kenya at the 17th. Visit the Hell's Gate National Park or take a nature walk in the Eburu Forest, while boating excursions on Lake Navaisha offer incredible bird watching opportunities. The lodge also has a specialised kid's club that offers many fun and educational outdoor activities.
