We were picked up promptly at home by Shem and taken to the hotel to meet Geoffrey to start our adventure. Both gentlemen were courteous and professional. Geoffrey who took us on the game drive was an impressive and knowledgeable Tour guide and driver given the challenges that we were met with. (Flooding conditions and major pot holes on the trail) Unfortunately we were not able to see Simba, the baboons or the zebra which used to inundate the park. We did manage to see alligators, impalas, rhinos, giraffes, ostrich, buffalo, and birds. We were able to get out and walk around a bit. We were then returned to or drop off point which was much appreciated.
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!
I was paired with Julius for a relaxed afternoon tour, who was very knowledgeable about the sights and history of Nairobi. The giraffe centre is smaller than I expected, although is well worth visiting if you wish to contribute positively toward the conservation of these endangered rothschild giraffes, as well as community education! I loved the Karen B museum and history of her adventures in Kenya. What a wonderful way to end an amazing stay in beautiful Kenya. Thanks Julius!
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.
Early morning game drive we saw Buffalos by the roadside,a few Giraffes,Black Backed Jackals,one Secretary Bird,a few Vultures. Highlights for me were one Black Rhino and a Lion pride with cubs along the road. There were five Crocodiles in the pond on the way out. Prompt pickup from our accommodation,friendly driver Tito,a good morning's outing to Nairobi National Park.
