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.

The tour went smoothly, Peter was an excellent guide who briefs you of what the day would look like. He was patient during the bike tour, keeping with my pace as well as when I need to stop to rest or to take photos. He is knowledgeable about the destination and would share the historical as well as anecdotal stories. The bike ride would have been the best time during the tour if not for the uncomfortable bike seat and the rough road! The tour was exactly how it was described. Peter was also a defensive driver even when we had encountered a horrendous traffic jam entering Nairobi. I would book other tours in the future when I return to Nairobi. Thanks for giving me a memorable experience. That’s Peter!

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!

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.
