Your Route


You will be picked up by our company representative from your accommodation facility in Nairobi after an early breakfast, for a scenic drive to Lake Naivasha. You will have a stopover at the spectacular Great Rift Valley viewpoint to stretch your legs and photograph the contrasting landscapes including Mt. Longonot and Suswa.

On arrival proceed to Lake Naivasha for a boat ride and walking excursion at the Crescent Island game sanctuary. Thereafter proceed to the nearby Hell's Gate National Park for a cycling or walking excursion at this beautiful & scenic park. Proceed for a late lunch at the nearby hotel and thereafter return to Nairobi and be dropped off late in the evening at your hotel to mark this as the end of your safari.

Hell's Gate is unlike any other national park. For a start, it's the only one where you're allowed to get out of your vehicle to walk and cycle. That's because the park is largely free of predators, leaving the zebras, giraffes, impalas, and many more.
