Recently, I when to Lake Naivasha with Karl, Eric, and Jeanna. We decided to drive up to the lake and stay at Fish Eagle Inn. Once we got settled and had some lunch, we then drove to Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. Crater Lake is a neat little lake inside a small crater. The sanctuary has many walking trails so we decided to walk up the ridge of crater to view the lake. While on the ridge of the crater, we threw some rocks down below and scared some cape buffalo. On the way out of the sanctuary, we decided take one last drive around to see if we could see anything. We weren’t really paying attention and didn’t plan on seeing anything, when Eric spotted a leopard! The leopard was about 20ft from the car and we were shocked to see it. We scared it off with the sound of the car before we could grab a picture.
The next day, we drove out to Cresecent Island. Upon arriving we got to meet Linda, the woman who runs the island. We walked around the island for a while and saw many different animals. There were a few dead wildebeests we found on our walk though. I was also able to walk right up to a giraffe on the island and it didn’t seem to mind. It was a great weekend overall, especially seeing the leopard at Crater Lake.
