Day 2: Lake Naivasha – Hell’s Gate National Park
After breakfast depart for Hell’s Gate National Park arriving in time for a game viewing drive around the park. Hell’s Gate National Park provides a truly panoramic picnic site, camping stop over and is also an endless biodiversity which allows walking or cycling without an official KWS escort. It has spectacular scenery, despite its rather alarming name, including the towering cliffs, water gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub-clad volcanoes and belching plumes of a natural geothermal steam. It is a relatively small park cleft deep in the floor of the Rift Valley. In the undulating grasslands, you can walk alongside herds of buffalo, zebra, giraffe, eland and hartebeest and Thomson’s gazelle. The park has a unique bird viewing hide which allows visitors to view and photograph the birds of prey at a close range. The Fischer’s Tower is a high jagged volcanic plug that remains of an ancient volcano and is named after the German explorer, Gustav Fischer. According to the local Maasai tradition, the rock is the petrified figure of a chief’s daughter who turned around, against the dictates of tradition to take one last look of her village before leaving to be married. The OlKaria Geothermal Station also lies in this park, being one of the hottest sources of natural steam in the world with an underground water temperature of 304oC. Dinner and overnight stay will be at Crater Lake
Day 3: Crater Lake Conservancy – Nairobi
After breakfast you proceed for a walk up to the rim of the beautiful volcanic crater for views down to the emerald-green Crater Lake. Flamingo populations have boomed here recently, having migrated from Lake Nakuru. With your guide you can walk through the conservancy area trekking after plains animals including giraffe, eland and antelope, while admiring the various species of birds and plants. Return to Else-mere. Else-mere is home to the late Joy and George Adamson, of Born Free fame. This is now a conservation center and museum where you will enjoy a delicious lunch in their beautiful gardens.
