Activity Short Description
If you really wish to keep fit during your holiday as you view spectacular scenes of the Rift Valley, then you should take a trip to Mt. Longonot during your stay at the Pelican Lodge. It may be a dormant volcano but there’s nothing dormant about the views and the exercise you will get.
Standing over the shores of Lake Naivasha, at 2886 metres this massive dormant volcano dominates the landscape for miles around. The brooding hulk of the Mountain is lined with spectacular fissures and laval canyons.
As you climb these slopes, you pass through herds of grazing game as spectacular views of the Rift Valley and Naivasha unfold below. Its vast crater is an awesome sight, the jagged edge surrounding a broad expanse of vegetation. Geothermal steam trickles upwards from the walls, while buffalo and other game make their way across the crater floor.
A climb up Mount Longonot is an ideal day trip from the pelican lodge its only 30min away.
