Lake Naivasha Budget Travel

Lake Naivasha budget travel explores the beautiful freshwater lake situated in Kenya, north-west of Nairobi, near the town of Naivasha. The lake is part of the Great Rift Valley, and is a popular stopover for backpacking tours in Kenya.

The name comes from the local Maasai name Nai'posha, which means "rough water" because of the sudden storms which arise.
