  • From Nairobi: Lakes Nakuru & Naivasha National Park Day Tour

    1. From Nairobi: Lakes Nakuru & Naivasha National Park Day Tour

    Your adventure begins at 6:00 AM with pickup in Nairobi. From there you'll head straight to Lake Nakuru National Park. The Lake is renowned as a bird sanctuary with over 400 bird species at times. There can be up to two million greater and lesser flamingoes and tens of thousands of other birds at Lake Nakuru. As a result the park is referred to as the "Birds' Paradise". The National Park is also a rhino sanctuary with excellent wildlife viewing.

You'll leave the park at approximately 3:00 PM and head to Lake Naivasha for an optional 1-hour boat ride. If you'd like to include the boat ride, be sure to select the correct option when making...

    We had a fantastic day out in nature and saw some amazing animals. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had an issue with out vouchers on entry to the park which caused a delay by around half an hour waiting in the Jeep. It didn’t overshadow our enjoyment of the day though and I would recommend this trip to others who want to see as much wildlife as possible in a tour not too far from Nairobi.

    The tour went smoothly, Peter was an excellent guide who briefs you of what the day would look like. He was patient during the bike tour, keeping with my pace as well as when I need to stop to rest or to take photos. He is knowledgeable about the destination and would share the historical as well as anecdotal stories. The bike ride would have been the best time during the tour if not for the uncomfortable bike seat and the rough road! The tour was exactly how it was described. Peter was also a defensive driver even when we had encountered a horrendous traffic jam entering Nairobi. I would book other tours in the future when I return to Nairobi. Thanks for giving me a memorable experience. That’s Peter!

I booked this tour and didn’t thought much about it, so I had no idea what to expect. But cycling through a national park and being able to see all the animals so close by was amazing! Charles shared all his knowledge with me on the tour and was really helpful with the hiking trails at the viewpoints. I definitely recommend it! And Paul as my driver was amazing as well! Good conversations, learned a lot about the culture and he got me into the boat safari, which was an experience by itself. I absolutely loved the day out at Hells Gate and Lake Naivasha!

My tour guide Paul was great. He showed me everything great about the advertised regions and ushered me her professionally throughout my day and my journey. As for the program: I really enjoyed the biking and the boat ride. The nature there is just breathtaking. The Gauges were closed unfortunately so I will have to come back.

Very nice excursion with George who is a very good guide, well organized and very pleasant. I recommend.
