Kiangazi, meaning "hot and dry season", is a beautiful country house set amidst lush gardens overlooking Lake Oloidien, adjacent to Lake Naivasha and a wildlife corridor. Naivasha was a haven for the early settlers in Kenya, home to the infamous happy valley stories of the early 1900s. The community thrives today in this gorgeous Rift Valley setting with agricultural, dairy and flower farms dominating the export business in the area.

A stay at Kiangazi House takes you back in time. The house is built in traditional settlers style with big rooms, huge fireplaces and a large verandah that has stunning views across the valley. The Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary and Game Corridor is home to a huge variety of wildlife and from Kiangazi you can enjoy the sunrise from the terrace watching giraffe and zebra strolling by! The house has well kept gardens and a large pool area and tennis court. There are 7 guest rooms, some in the house, including a large suite, and others located in the garden. All are en-suite and fires are lit in the cool winter evenings.

Activities from Kiangazi House include game drives in 4 wheel drive vehicles and guided bush walks, trips to Hells Gate National Park, bass fishing, sundowners and bush breakfasts, boat trips on Lake Naivasha, day trips to Lake Nakuru National Park, visit Elsamere, home of the late Joy Adamson, tour the flower farm. Animals that can be seen in the Sanctuary include White Rhino, giraffe, hyena, jackal, Bat-eared Foxes, leopard, eland, topi, kongoni, impala, hartebeest, zebra (common and Grevys), oryx and many smaller mammals. There is a huge population of birds in the Naivasha area (around 320 species) the gardens of the house also are home to a variety of sunbirds, weavers and many others. The call of the Fish Eagle is a symbol of Lake Naivasha and these magnificent birds can be seen all around the lake area.
