What people are saying about Naivasha

This was my second trip to Lake Nakuru and Naivasha with GetYourGuide. I decided to do this trip again in June 2021 and was not disappointed. I was picked up from my hotel at 6am by the guide Nathan, who was very punctual. The Game drive started at 10am and lasted 3 hours at Lake Nakuru, where I saw many different animals such as zebras, cape buffalo, white and black rhinos, impalas, baboons, pelicans, many flamingos, warthogs, waterbucks, spoonbills, giraffes, fish eagles and a new hippo in the area. After lunch we went to Lake Naivasha where I took an afternoon boat ride. During the boat ride I saw hippos, fishermen, fish eagles fishing, pelicans, cormorans, kingfishers, egrets, ibis and many animals such as zebras, impalas on Crescent island from the movie Out of Africa. I strongly recommend the this trip and the guide Nathan from Perfect Wilderness Tours and Safari!

I was very lucky to have Paul Oyugi as my guide! We was very nice during the 12h we’ve spent together visiting the amazing Nakuru National Park, it’s lake, and then Lake Naivasha with a wonderful lunch buffet at Lake Naivasha Crescent Camp. I saw a lot of animals at Nakuru Park and then the flamingos and pelicans in the lake was breathtaking. The boat ride at Naivasha Lake was also very special, saw a lot of different bird species and Crescent island by the lake as well. I paid the park fees + lunch (which was optional) + boat trip directly and would recommend to do it like that. Thank you Paul for such an unforgettable experience!!!

A once-in-a-lifetime experience! Our driver Danson went above and beyond to show us all the wildlife at Lake Nakuru. Totally recommend this activity, it was such an incredible day! That being said, we also did the optional boat ride but it wasn't worth the $80 we paid just to see a family of hippos. This, however, has nothing to do with the overall activity, since the boat ride was optional. Just a thought for those considering the boat ride.

It was an unforgettable trip. The travel company is very professional and caters to the wishes of the travelers (the wishes are always preferred even if it is not on schedule) We had George as our tour guide and he was the best. We never had a tour guide with whom you felt so safe and had so much fun.

Very nice excursion with George who is a very good guide, well organized and very pleasant. I recommend.
