Walk among African wildlife in absolute safety, without so much as a pane of glass in between, on this very special hiking safari from Nairobi. Stroll among zebras, giraffes, and other plant-eaters in Hell’s Gate National Park, and soak up views of Lake Naivasha too. This is a small-group tour, capped at just 15 travelers for more attention from your guide,
You will be met at your Nairobi city hotel by our safari driver guide who will drive northwest to Lake Nakuru. There will be a short stop at a viewing point to have a look at the Great Rift Valley from an elevated position. Your journey will continue to Lake Nakuru, arriving in time for a pre-lunch game drive.
Lake Nakuru National Park is home to Giraffes, Waterbucks, Black and White Rhinos, Buffalo, Lions, and Leopards, among other wildlife. On the shores of the lake, there are thousands of Flamingos who feed on the algae.
Lunch will be at the Lake Nakuru Lodge, Sarova Lion Hill Lodge, or similar. There will be an afternoon game drive around Lake Nakuru and the forest nearby. Return to your chosen accommodation for dinner and an overnight stay.
After an early breakfast, there will be a final game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park. The drive continues to Kenya’s highest lake, at 1,880 meters above sea level, Lake Naivasha. Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake, fringed by thick papyrus. You will observe Hippos lazing in the lake and Buffalos grazing on the shores.
There are over 300 species of birds to observe. These include the Grey-capped Warbler, Spectacled Weaver, Brimstone Canary, and the Red-billed fire finch.
Lunch will be served at Lake Naivasha Sopa Safari Lodge or similar. In the afternoon there are boat trips on the lake or nature walks on crescent Island. You will have the chance to see some of the animals at a very close range e.g. Zebras, Giraffes, and Wildebeest.
