Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi- Naivasha-Hell’s Gate

After breakfast depart on a pleasant drive to the floor of the Great Rift Valley with its spectacular views of the valley below. After a brief stop over at the view point, continue to  Hell’s Gate National Park  where you will spend the entire day hiking, you’ll have the opportunity to  hike down the Njorowa gorge. The gorge that the park derives its name from is a product of the powerful volcanic activities that led to the formation of the Great Rift Valley. You’ll discover some steaming volcanic vents and hot springs. Wild animals found in this park rare Klipspringer, the rare Chandler’s mountain reedbuck ostrich, waterbuck, impala, buffalo and warthogs.

Dinner and Overnight at a Naivasha Camp

Day 2: Mount Longonot-Lake Naivasha

Early drive to the base of Mount Longonot where you will embark on climbing up the mountain. The trek to the peak (2,800m above sea level) is about 9 km long and some sections of the trail are quite steep, so much so that the round trip from the park gate to the peak and back takes about 5 hours of hiking. More energetic hikers can circumnavigate the crater for another 2 hours.

Dinner and Overnight at a Naivasha Camp

Day 3: Lake Naivasha- Loita Hills

Morning boat ride to Crescent Island in Lake Naivasha for a game walk. Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in the Rift Valley, famed for its prolific birdlife, including fish eagles, pelicans and love birds. Hippos can also be spotted. It covers an area of 180 square km and an elevation of 1800m above the sea level.

The game walk will be on Crescent Island, a peninsula on the eastern shore of Lake Naivasha that is a privately owned game sanctuary that hosts giraffes, waterbucks, elands, zebras and impalas. There are also several species of birds here. The walk is gentle and offers ample time to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings.
