Our walking tour of Crescent Island was arranged by our tour director Agoi Hosking of Affable Tours and Safaris. It was here that we were able to get closest to the giraffes of any place on our Kenya trip

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.

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.

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

Crescent island is an amazing place to go for a Nature walk. We saw Zebras, Water bucks, Giraffes, Impalas, Gazelles and birds. The walk is gentle, not exhausting at all and we loved it!

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... More

We arrived by road. Yes I would say 2 hours is plenty of time to wander around and I can't answer about the guide as we came with our own guide. Enjoy.
