Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake, fringed by thick papyrus.
These forests abound with bird life, and Naivasha is known as a world class birding
The waters of the lake draw a great range of game to these shores. Giraffes wander
among the acacia,
Buffalo wallow in the swamps and Colobus monkeys call from the treetops while the Lakes
large hippo population
sleep the day out in the shallows.
You can ride among giraffes and zebras, sip on a glass of Rift Valley red, look for
hippos on the lake.
Hell's Gate National Park :
You'll be picked up from your hotel, and taken a 90km drive from the city to Hell's
Gate National Park. Located between beautiful Lake Naivasha and the twin Longonot and
Suswa Volcanoes, Hell's Gate is one of Africa's most visually stunning parks.
Hell's Gate is famous for its natural hot geysers, its eagle and vulture breeding
grounds, and the variety of activities that visitors have access to during their visit.
Hiking, cycling, and rock climbing are just a few of the options available to visitors.
While Hell's Gate is known primarily for its landscape, there is still game to be
spotted within the park. Buffalo, giraffes, elands, lions, leopards, and cheetahs can
all be spotted in the park on occasion.
National Park :
Upon arrival at Hell's Gate National Park, you can hike the canyons and mountains, rent
bikes and enjoy a leisurely cycle, go horse riding. Rock climbing is also available.
A visit to Hell's Gate offers a vastly different experience than you'll find anywhere
else in East Africa. What the park lacks in game-viewing opportunities, it makes up for
with its alien landscape and the freedom to explore it however you see fit
Sopa Resort :
Later we proceed for lunch at Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort. Set in one hundred and fifty
acres of grassland studded with Acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to
our resident giraffe, waterbuck and both Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but it is also a
night stop for
the hippos when they leave the lake every night to come and trim the grass on our
Boat Ride and Cresent Island :
There is just one “Crescent Island Game Park”. Located on Lake Naivasha, Kenya in the
Great Rift Valley. It is one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya, and is Naivasha’s
best kept secret. Surrounded by water, it is actually a peninsular and is accessible by
boat from East or West as well as by road.
The shores host abundant birdlife including pelicans, cormorants and fish-eagles with
their haunting cry. There are more animals per acre than any other Kenyan Park.
On arrival you start with a boat ride tour with a one hour speed boat animal viewing
expeditions. The boat drops you at the island where you are welcomed by guides and
proceed for a walking tour. Come close to friendly wild animals with well trained
guides leading you.
After this guided tour, the boat will come for you for the dry land and departure for
Nairobi. Drop at your Nairobi hotel with a lot of memories.
