Full description
Start off the adventure at 7 AM when you will be picked up and driven to the Great Rift Valley viewpoint, one of Kenya’s most spectacular spots. Briefly absorb the panoramic views of all the major attractions in Nairobi before moving on to Hell's Gate National Park.

Get into gear and start the 2-hour biking safari around the park. Expect to cycle past a range of wildlife, from large antelopes to roaming zebras and everything in between. This is followed by an hour-long walk exploring the gorges inside the park with a private guide. Gorges are small, thin depressions of land that you can walk underneath. 

Travel by motor vehicle to Naivasha Fishermans or Marina camp for lunch at 1 PM. At 2 PM, enjoy a boat ride across Lake Naivasha, the Rift Valley's highest lake. Encircled by verdant banks, olive trees and cacti this lake is home to exotic birds and giant hippos. 

At 4 PM, depart for Nairobi where you will be dropped off at your hotel, area of residence, or the airport.

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.

A day of adventure

Our day trip to Hell’s Gate has been fantastic! Our guide Peter was punctual and accompanied us with a great humor throughout the whole day. Well recommended! Hell’s Gate (despite the name) is a paradise! The ride with the bike was great to admire the landscape and the trekking in the rift was fun and very spectacular. Naivasha lake was also a nice experience. The major minus was that we did not see many hippos as expected and from a quite far distance. In the Hell’s Gate as well the animals were not many and not very close. Perhaps we were unlucky for the animals, but overall I recommend the trip!
