Africa My Africa!!! The great rift valley lodge & golf resort.

 

The future belongs to us, because we have taken charge of it. We have the commitment, we have the resourcefulness, and we have the strength of our people to share the dream across Africa of clean water for all. ~Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this piece as golf happens to be one of my favorite sport.
Located in Naivasha, Kenya, the Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort is the perfect holiday spot for everyone, most especially golf lovers. The prestigious resort is filled with so much heritage and is in a league of its own with quite a number of outstanding awards, including Africa’s Best Golf hotel 2016 and Kenya’s Best Golf Hotel 2016 from the World Golf Awards.

It is an hour and a half’s drive or a 30-minute flight from Nairobi, sitting at about 7,000 feet on the Eburru range along the Rift Valley, a mountain popularly known as Ol Donyo Opurru which means “mountain of smoke” in Maasai.

 

As you can imagine, a lodge sitting on a mountain would have a breath taking view and it does, commanding a spectacular vista that would leave in awe. From the sparkling waters of Lake Naivasha on the floor off-the-wall Rift Valley, to jagged mountain edges of Longonot, Mt Kipipiri and the Aberdare Ranges, a round of golf on the 18-hole course is an immersion into nature’s beauty!
