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!

The St Regis Punta Mita (My St Regis!)

St Regis Punta Mita located in the Riviera Nayarit. It’s 26 miles north of Puerto Vallarta International Airport.

Driving into The St Regis Punta Mita I could almost feel the warmth and serenity from the atmosphere. It was a slow drive that afforded me the opportunity of fully absorbing the beauty of the environment.

I was intrigued driving in between two world class Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses. I couldn’t wait to see the only golf course in the world with a hole on a natural island! (That’s a first right?)  I pull up at the reception and I’m welcomed with warm and pleasant staff, cold water in hand. (In Punta Mita that time of the year cold water is bliss) I immediately relax and I feel like I had visited before.
