Hippo Point Wildlife Conservancy & Dodo’s Tower
Hippo Point is an exclusive private wildlife conservancy sitting on an isthmus between Lake Naivasha and Lake Oloidien at an altitude of 6,200 feet or 1,050 meters. With a near perfect microclimate, over 350 species of birds and an average of 1,200 resident animals roaming the grounds it is the perfect place to let go of your busy life.
Completed in 1993, Hippo Point is the eccentric folly of Dodo Cunningham-Reid, who wanted to build something special in Kenya for herself and others to enjoy. Today this gem creates a sophisticated African environment to enjoy nature and have fun; catch up with yourself, enjoy family and friends
Originally planned as a weekend escape for Dodo and husband Michael when visiting their 600-acre Nderit estate, there is impressive attention to detail. The top of the tower provides a 360-degree observation lookout, while a floor below is a minaret-style meditation room, furnished with big cushions and a surround view.
