Crescent Island Game Sanctuary
Inside Kenya’s Great Rift Valley lies Crescent Island Game Sanctuary, Naivasha’s best kept secret. Here, wildlife lives in relative peace and tranquility, a heaven and haven for herbivores, as there are no carnivores chasing after them.
With a higher population of animals than many other parks in the country, Crescent is an ideal spot to walk among the habituated herbivore wildlife. The island, in the shape of a crescent, can be accessed by boat or road. The area is unfenced and wildlife from the mainland freely goes in and out. Although still referred to as an island, the sanctuary was created in 1988, when the island became a peninsula.
The shores host abundant wildlife including wildebeest, waterbuck, zebra and gazelle and hippos.
