Loldia House

April news from Loldia House 2017

After months of waiting rain finally arrived at Loldia, the grass is beggining to grow and we have been told to expect more in the coming week. The Red Chested Cuckoo is ‘shouting’ perhaps he is heralding rain!!
 
We are continuing work on our Top Cottage renovation and we hope to have this completed by the end of May. Our staff also completed a first aid refresher course.

Over Easter we welcomed a was a large group of guests, they were Nuffield Scholars on  a world tour and were full of interesting conversation. With the ongoing dry season the ranch has been feeding with hay and molasses to the animals in front of the house and this has brought in a constant stream of zebra, impala, buffalo and warthogs. We have had lovely sightings of the 5 giraffe feeding on the Acacia trees before heading down to the lake to drink at sunset time. 

We have had interesting sightings of the Fish Eagle nursery behind the house, it looks as though they were being taught to catch or chase Guinea Fowls.

Night drives have been good with sightings of  Bat Eared Foxes, Spring Hares, Hyenas and even the Aardvark. Guests saw 10 White Rhino and 1 black rhino plus lions mating and quite a few flamingo on a day trip to Lake Nakuru  and came back to the lodge very happy.
