This tiny little gem is found at Lake Naivasha. The Crescent island is a preserved sanctuary for Wildlife. The most interesting part about this island is that you get to do your safari on foot. Yes, that means you'll get to walk among the animals instead of enjoying them from the car. Of course, you will never be too close as they will probably start avoiding you even when you are miles away.

To get to this place, you park your car at the Naivasha Country Club and get a boat ride from the country club. You can buy the ticket from the reception. Alternatively, you can also drive to island by passing through the "Horse Riding Complex" (keep right). Park fees will be charged.

Entrance into the Island

We were there on a beautiful sunny day, perfect for picture but I really wished we were in the car instead of walking as it was scorching hot!

For some reason, this island is really calm. If you are worried about your safety, fret not as there is a station right on top of the hill where a ranger sits and keep watch on the surroundings. He will alert you if there is danger. However, always remember, you are in the wild so DO NOT provoke the animals...
