Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in the Kenya section of Africa’s Great Rift Valley.

At 1,890 meters (6,200 ft) above sea level, the lake is at the highest point in the Kenyan rift, and is set in a complex geological combination of volcanic rocks and sedimentary.

Because the outlet for this ancient lake, now called Njorwa Gorge, is today much higher than the lake, the original Lake must have indeed been a truly vast expanse of water.

The gorge now forms the entrance to the Hell’s Gate National Park which, for obvious reasons, today contains some spectacular examples of water and weather-worn rock formations.
