Things to do in Kenya

Meet the Lake Naivasha community

When you stay at Loldia House, you’ll get the chance to meet the Lake Naivasha locals and give back while you travel. Governors’ has a long history of supporting our communities with everything from monthly food drives to funding schools and medical clinics. We know that the key to conserving wild areas of Kenya is to work with local people and make sure they benefit directly from tourism and your stay directly contributes to our work.

We set up Loldia School Fund to support our local primary school. This means we’ve been able to completely rebuild the school and offer scholarships for students. We also set up a kindergarten and now run literacy classes for adults in the evenings. This has transformed life for the local community. Some of the brightest students have even gone on to study at university across Kenya and in South Africa.

Guests can also visit one of the nearby flower farms, where many locals work. The Lake Naivasha area is well-known for its horticulture, thanks to the fertile soil and many lakes. In fact, Kenya is one of Europe’s largest suppliers of flowers, mostly grown in Naivasha. During the visit, you’ll meet the gardeners and take a guided walk through a green house, learning about the entire process from planting to cutting and transporting. It’s a fascinating experience.
