Itinerary
Stop At:  
Lake Naivasha
Lake Naivasha full day tour departs Nairobi after breakfast and the journey takes you Northwest of the city of Nairobi to the Great Rift Valley Floor. Along the way you make a special stop at a viewpoint to enjoy views of the Great Rift Valley Escarpment. There is just one “Crescent Island Game Park”. Located on Lake Naivasha, Kenya in the Great Rift Valley. It is simply one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya, often called Naivasha’s best kept secret. It is private, secure and patrolled by guides who can accompany anyone who wishes a for guided walk. The shores host abundant bird life especially huge numbers of pelicans, cormorants and fish-eagles with their haunting cry. There are more animals per acre than any other Kenyan Park, hence many film companies have been to the Island to film the herds of Wildebeests, Waterbuck, Zebra and Gazelle. We are not fenced to allow the wildlife on the mainland to come in as they lose their habitat to development and the ever increasing population. Hippo graze all over us at night then sleep under the acacia or rest in the water by day. The giraffe who were born on the island return to give birth; sometimes you see three generations at a time.

This was a great day out especially...
Evelyn H
, Jun 2017
This was a great day out especially as a solo traveler and my driver Nelson Nyamai was excellent . The trip took me down the Rift Valley escarpment to the valley and out to Lake Naishava where we braved the rain and had a coffee and then I had a hour long boat ride around the lake where I saw a huge amount of wild life including Hippos and Sea Kites fishing. The we headed up to the Thermal area of the Elsa National park and spent the afternoon there doing an hour long guided walk through the river bed and then up to the Thermal Power plant and generally enjoying the countryside and the wild life which was just on the side of the road. On the way home we stopped at the Naishava Mall for lunch and then home via the main highway into Nairobi. All in all we were away about 12 hours and he stopped any time I wanted to take photos . The next day as a private arrangement he took me to the Buma Cultural Centre and I had a wonderful afternoon seeing part of Nairobi which I would have not known about. I would highly recommend this day trip - If you are going to Kenya , spend an extra few days in Nairobi and use this service to sights see around the area. Nelson gave me such a positive time in Nairobi I would love visit again at some stage and would certainly recommend him as a guide. I also used the Viator service for my airport transfers which I think is essential in a city like Nairobi and also highly recommend one of the walking tours of the city that are offered.
