Naivasha has two common and the best places to visit Hell's Gate National Park and Longonot.Most of the hotels/ camps provide boat services.Clayfish Camp is a good place,they have self and non self rooms and tents.Their prices are also good.I can help you book the room/s and even drive you there if you get back to me through this email
Faith, Good question. Naivasha is one of the best and interesting place to visit. The Most memorable would be a bike ride inside Hellgate National park. Rent a bike at Naivasha and start with your guide. If you are physically fit I would suggest an expendition at Mt. Longonot and late relax with a boat ride and visit the cresent Island. If your interest is animals then I suggest you take a 45 minutes drive to Lake Nakuru National park.
Accommodation
Will higly depend on your budget.
High End Accommodation - Loldia House, Kigio Racnh
Middle Accomodation - Naivasha Sopa, Crater Lake Naivasha Simba and Naivasha Resort
Low End : Cray fish / Naivasha resort as an excellent camp site.
and More.For more information let me know.
Faith, i would suggest that you visit Hell's gate park and have a fun at longonot climbing then you will come back to me and tell me it was great!

The possibilities are seemingly endless in Naivasha.

It depends on what kind of places you're interested in visiting. If its wildlife you want, go to the Oserian wildlife conservancy or Kongoni Wildlife conservancy on the Western side of the lake, or to Hell's Gate National Park. If it's relaxed lakeside camping you want, you can go to Burch's campsite, Fisherman's Campsite, Fish Eagle inn, or a host of other similar places. If it's more comfortable, room accommodation you want, head to Lake Naivasha Country Club or to Elsamere, the historic home of Joy Adamson.
If you want higher end lodges and hotels, there are plenty of those to choose from. Crater Lake Tented Camp, on it's own private lake, has been rated one of the best in Kenya in the local newspapers.
Mt. Longonot makes a great day trip for hiking up to and around the crater.
If you want to venture slightly farther afield, to the North side of the lake, you can stay at Greenpark golf and country club.
If you want any more suggestions, feel free to ask.
How are you doing Faith Benson,
the best place to visit and to sleep at Naivasha are plenty,but let me sample for you the main one as follows:
PLACES TO VISIT:MT. LONGONOT AND LAKE NAIVASHA.
Leave Nairobi City - The concrete jungle - and drive western wards stopping at the view point on the Great Rift Valley and view the Loita Plains and also from here you can see Lake Naivasha Sparkling in the sun thousand of feet below. Then proceed to lake Naivasha (and this is the highest lake in rift valley). Also Lake Naivasha is famous in the 1930,s as a staging post for Imperial Airways, Flying Boat Services from Durban to London. You can have a boat ride to the Crescent Island (an option activity)
N/B: Crescent Island is one of the few places in all Africa where you can wander on foot among herds of Zebra, wildebeests, Gazelle and Giraffe and no predators.

PLACES TO SLEEP:Here We have so many camps and lodges.If you contact me I can be able to make the arrangement for you,Also is better to give your choice between the two(camping or lodge safaris).

I hope to read from you regarding your tour arrangements.
Thank

Steven

Best place to stay is definitely the Crater Lake Lodge. There is so many places to visit in Naivasha. Hell's Gate National Park (where you can mountainbike or hike), Crescent Island (where Out of Africa was shot), flower farms (Holland in Africa), and generally Naivasha is a place that is quiet and nice, not too far from Nairobi, hence ideal for a weekend getaway or short break. For more details, contact Lokenjen.

Hells Gate National park is the best with a lot of activities and tour site for you to enjoy. flower farms around the area and Lake Naivasha near by the list is endless, you will like it most
