Hippo Point in Kenya, a luxurious estate on the shores of a beautiful lake
Kenya highly values its great African wilderness, and there are numerous parks, reserves and conservatories established throughout the nation, and the outstanding eco-touring luxury resort of Hippo Point is located in the Lake Naivasha National Park, which lies in between the Hell’s Gate Gorge National Park and the Kingono Game Ranch, about 60 miles northwest of Nairobi.
Lake Naivasha is very proud to be one of the premier birding spots in East Africa, and of course the waters of the park also attract thousands of other species of wildlife. The staff will be happy to organise bespoke wildlife tours of the region on a bespoken basis. The resort is located on a small peninsula that separates Lake Naivasha from the small pond called Lake Oloidien, and between these two clear waters are some of the finest luxury accommodations in Kenya. The Hippo Point Estate features several refurbished buildings from Kenya’s colonial period, including the 1932 Manor House, and the Dodo’s Tower. The estate also offers its guest the comforts of a twenty-meter swimming pool, and in the Manor House a perfectly cosy library and fireplace are available to all guests.
Grand Towers in the African Bush
At the Hippo Point estate, there are fourteen rooms available, as well as villas. The Manor House includes eight roughly equivalent single rooms, and there are two sections of the House set off for children. The Dodo’s Tower offers four doubles and one single on the ground floor, including four balconies and writing rooms for guests. All rooms are furnished with four-star amenities, and your hosts at Hippo Point will be glad to arrange bespoken spa services for you in your room. The estate serves meals for all guests in family style each day, at various locations on the estate, and all meals and beverages are included in the boarding expense of your stay.
Bespoke Tours of the Savannah at Night
The owners of the Hippo Point resort are ardent bird watchers, and they have created a thorough agenda for sharing their passion, laying out the best places and times for spotting the countless species of Africa’s brightest and most beautiful birds that flock to the two lake shores. You can also enjoy night safaris during your stay, and your guides will also be glad to arrange horseback rides around the region. Bespoken day trips to the nearby Rhino Sanctuary, or the impressive scenery of Hell’s Gate Gorge, are also easy to arrange. Upon your return to Hippo Point, the estate will present the outstanding fine dining cuisine of Penina, the chef of the resort for the last twenty years. At night, while you rest and enjoy the easy pace of life in your rooms, you can savor the luxury and relaxation of a grand African experience here at Hippo Point.
