Full description
After a morning pick-up at 7:00 AM from your Nairobi area hotel or residence, commence the drive to Hell’s Gate National Park with stops at the scenic Rift valley viewpoint. Arrive at around 9:00 AM and start your 2-hour biking tour. Hell’s Gate is one of Kenya's smaller national parks, which can be explored on foot. This is followed by a delightful bicycle ride amid gracefully grazing gazelles, larger antelopes, zebras, and giraffe.

Next, drive to Naivasha Fisherman’s Camp for lunch at 1:00 PM (at your own expense). At 2:00 PM, take a boat ride to Crescent Island Sanctuary for a unique walk amongst the wildlife. The sanctuary is home to giraffes, water-bucks, elands, wildebeests, zebras, impalas, and hippos among other wildlife one is likely to find at the conservancy. Birds include the fish eagles, ospreys, lily-trotters and many more.

It was absolutely brilliant. Thought at first that the biking safari was the best experience ever, only to find that the boat trip to Crescent Island and particularly the walk around the island was the ultimate dream. Being so close to so many animals was simply awesome. Special mention of our driver Victor who was the best and safest driver we could have wished for. Comfortable car, wonderful guy.
