About Giraffe House & Bee Hut

Set on a hill with sweeping views of Lake Naivasha and the surrounding conservancy, you will find you never want to leave this bright, airy sanctuary, above the fray of everyday life. The house is perfect for large groups; relax on the patio, take long walks to see the game & bird life on the island or cruise the lake shore on a boat.
