Lake Naivasha is one of the most fascinating wetlands in Kenya. Discover the diversity of the native African wildlife on its shores with this private excursion.
Lake Naivasha Trip
We'll set off from your hotel in Nairobi and head to the famous Lake Naivasha.
First, we'll visit an important natural area located around the lake: Hell's Gate National Park, one of the few in Kenya where visitors are allowed to leave their vehicles and walk freely along its trails. Did you know this national park was the inspiration for the 1994 Disney film the Lion King?! We'll explore this breathtaking landscape and admire its great gorges and rock formations such as Fischer's Tower and Central Tower. You'll also have some free time to do other optional activities such as climbing or cycling.
Afterwards, we'll make our way to Lake Naivasha National Park. Before we continue with the tour, we'll take a break to regain our strength with a picnic that will include three sandwiches, two fruits, a yoghurt, juice and a bottle of mineral water.
After lunch, we'll enjoy a boat ride on Lake Naivasha and marvel at the pelicans, hippos and other species of birds and mammals that live in this extraordinary ecosystem.
Next we'll head to Crescent Island, a small islet on Lake Naivasha. Despite its small size, this tiny island is home to incredible creatures such as zebras and gazelles, which you can photograph up close!
At the end of the trip we'll return to Nairobi.
