Itinerary

Day 1Hell’s Gate / Lake Naivasha National Park

o 8 am pick up from your overnight accommodation or our offices in Nairobi CBD
o Departure for an enjoyable safari south along the Great Rift Valley on the main Nairobi – Nakuru highway with several stops at strategic peak viewpoints to have a view of the Great Right Valley floor.
o The safari starts at Hell’s Gate National Park with its savannah ecosystem which harbours a wide variety of wildlife. There are over 100 species of birds in the park including vultures, verreaux’s eagles, augur buzzard and swifts. Also common in the park are African buffalo, zebra, eland, hartebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, and baboons.
o We then depart in the afternoon to Lake Naivasha, which is the highest and the most beautiful of the Rift Valley lakes. Here you will enjoy popular bird watching with over 400 bird species recorded in the lake. Lake Naivasha is also a popular weekend retreat for Nairobi expat community for sailing, skiing and fishing, and you get a great opportunity to network in case you are looking to set up in Kenya or just know more about our country from all perspectives.
o Afternoon sailing is common in Lake Naivasha and we highly recommend it so that you enjoy wholesome elevated Rift Valley view. The Lake has no crocodiles because the water is too cold for them at this high altitude. There are several hippos though that you will enjoy watching from a distance. Along the shores of Lake Naivasha are pristine vineyards producing grapes for Kenya’s growing wine industry.
o Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge.
