Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Kenya, which is part of the Great Rift Valley. The name Naivasha is derived from Maasai tribe word Nai’posha which means “rough water” because of the sudden storms which can arise.
The lake is world’s famous for its amazing birdlife. Hippo, zebra, giraffe, colobus monkey, buffalo elands, impalas, waterbucks and other grazers can also be found in the shores of the lake.
Njorowa Gorge used to form the lake’s outlet, but it is now high above the lake and forms the entrance to Hell’s Gate National Park. The town of Naivasha lies on the north-east edge of the lake.
