2 Days Nakuru, Naivasha Safari from Nairobi in a private 4×4 Pop-up Safari Tour Van per person sharing a Double/Twin En-suite Room.
Lake Nakuru is a standpoint and a harbor for watching more than 400 species of birds in rift valley. As you visit the lake, game animals are in large numbers. Hippos, buffalos and many species of birds are unstoppable. Flamingos are prominently notable just like in Lake Naivasha.
Nakuru National Park is home to few remaining Rhinos in Kenya. Two Rhino species thrive in this park; the square-lipped or White Rhino preferring to graze in the short grass of the plains, and it’s more nervous browsing cousin, the Black Rhino, that tends to keep to the cover of thicker bush. The Park also offers great sightseeing of larger predators like the lions and Leopards.
Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake with a dense population of animals such as hippos and several species of birds. Travelers enjoy riding on waters with the help of boat operators at a favorable fee. Near Lake Naivasha is the The Hell’s Gate National Park.
Named for the intense geothermal activity within its boundaries, the Hell’s Gate National Park is a remarkable quarter of the Great Rift Valley. Spectacular scenery including the towering cliffs, water-gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub clad volcanoes and belching plumes of geothermal steam make it one of the most atmospheric Parks in Africa.
Hell’s Gate is an ideal venue for a nature walk where, in addition to the bio-diversity that includes raptors, visitors can enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing. The park inhabits the African buffalo, zebra, eland, hartebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and baboons in common.
The park is also home to klipspringer antelope and Chandler’s mountain reedbuck. Hell’s Gate National Park is also rich in prolific birdlife – there are over 100 species of birds in the park, including vultures, Verreaux’s Eagles, augur buzzard and swifts.
Crescent Island is Naivasha’s best kept secret and is accessible by boat and road across the swampy causeway from Sanctuary Farm. In 1988, the water in Lake Naivasha dropped significantly which allowed the creation of Crescent Island.
Because this animal and bird sanctuary has more animals per acre than any other Kenyan park, a lot of films have been shot of waterbucks, wildebeests, and zebras at this location.
Giraffes, hippos, pythons, buffaloes, and hyenas frequent Crescent Island, some to graze and others to calve.
This sanctuary opens its doors from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and guided walks take about 3 hours.
