There is so much to see here in terms of wildlife! One gets the beauty of flamingoes, fish eagles and varieties of other species. It’s part of a lake ecosystem rich in animal life- well worth the visit!
We took a power boat out to the island and walked around the periphery. It was incredible to walk amongst giraffes, water buck, wildebeest, zebras and antelope. Surprisingly, they kept their distance but allowed us to approach as long as we didn't more too quickly.
My girlfriend and I really liked this park. Cheapest way to go is by own car (check google maps satelite pictures for route). From the main road you go to the "sanctuary farm" for which you have to pay 300 shilling to enter in total...More
Crescent island being a place where there are no predators, one can experience a walking safari. We spotted a lot of Impala, Wildebeest, Giraffe and a host of beautiful birds. There are also many hippos by the water.
A very beautiful island at Lake Naivasha where animals roam freely. You can see Giraffes at a very close distance, zebras, buffaloes, Wildebeests, Gazelles and a variety of birds. Please do take a guide though as he/she will explain how the island was formed and...More
It's a wonderful experience to walk around on Crescent Island with zebras, giraffes, impala, gazelles, and the enigmatic wildebeest. The wildebeest is determined to keep a safe distance, though all the other animals are not that shy. The giraffes let you be pretty close so...More
We stopped on the island as part of our safari boat ride on the lake. We were fortunate to spend about 2 hours strolling the island. It was amazing just to walk amongst the wild life there. It was so peaceful and real. It just...More

After 4 days of intense safari, the walking tour of Crescent Island was a welcome break. The absence of dangerous predators let us walk up close to giraffes, zebras, horses, impalas, gazelles and water bucks. You can see flamingoes, pelicans, hippos, african fish eagle, cormorants,...More

The weather on Crescent Island is pretty much the same year round. I was just there yesterday and the weather was perfect. It was warm with lots of sun, mixed with a good breeze that made the experience awesome. The only thing i advise for the Crescent Island walk is take a rain jacket, just in case. Rain can catch you off guard and it's a long way from the tip of the island back to the car. No biting flies, although flies can be irritating if you are close to the critters, but that is minimal.
A tank top is fine as long as you have a cover-up. Remember to be respectful of the locals. Wear sunscreen too. The sun can be harsh and you don't even realize it.
My wife and i are blessed to live just down the road from Crescent so we go there often. All of our visitors leave with Crescent being their top experience. We do too.

Yes it feels safe. The Hippos are in a specific area. The boat doesn't go too close to the Hippos anyway. It's a lovely quiet ride. I had checked the weather forecast for the day we were planning to go. It was going to be cloudy/overcast but not rainy. That's a perfect weather in my opinion. It may be too hot to be on the lake in a sunny day. We didn't book this via a tour. We had a car/guide-driver with us anyways. We were staying at Kiboko Luxury Camp. Just few minutes drive took us to the jetty around 3pm. We paid USD cash (no credit card accepted) at the counter there for the boat ride & for the entry to the island. Can't remember the total amt but approx USD 230 for 2 Adults & 2 teens (15 yr olds).
