Highlights
    What to Expect
    Get an early, 6:30am start with pickup at your Nairobi hotel, and enjoy views of the Great Rift Valley as you make the 3-hour drive to Lake Nakuru National Park in a private vehicle. Upon arrival, go deep into the park on a 3-hour game drive with your guide, who will offer commentary throughout the day. The forest and grassland around Lake Nakuru National Park are renowned for bird watching, and the reserve is also home to white rhinos, waterbucks, hippos, and a small population of rare, tree-climbing lions.

    Break for lunch at Lake Nakuru Lodge restaurant; with advance notice, it’s also possible to arrange for a picnic lunch in the park. After lunch, continue through the Lake Nakuru National Park on an afternoon game drive—different animals come out to feed throughout the day. At 3pm, leave Lake Nakuru for Lake Naivasha, the highest-elevation lake in the Great Rift Valley.

    Take in unobstructed views of the lake on a 1-hour boat ride (own expense), with stops to spot some of Navaisha’s vast bird population, watch eagles feeding, and see the hippos that wallow along the grassy shoreline. Return to shore for an early evening ride to Nairobi, then finish the tour with 6pm drop-off at your hotel.

    We had a private tour for three adults. Albert was an expert tourguide! He has great patience with visitors and he is a safe driver. We were so lucky to also have him for the Nairobi Park tour as well. On this tour, he showed us incredible animals including baboons, birds,

    This is a very long day trip... beginning at 6am and ending at 6pm but if you are looking to see rhino and don't have the opportunity to go further afield, you will find rhino (and other game) aplenty at Nakuru. As an attraction in its own right, the recent inundation of the

    Hello, Thank you for taking time to write us a review. We are happy to read that you had an amazing tour with Sam. Our clients safety and comfort comes first, we are glad that Sam ensured this. Lake Nakuru is one of the havens of wildlife in Kenya, with diverse wildlife from birds to different species of mammals like Rhinos, baboons, antelopes among others. It is quite unfortunate that you did not get the chance to see plenty of flamingos. There has been a rise in water levels in the lake and this has resulted in migration of the flamingos to Lake Bogoria. Nevertheless, we are glad that you enjoyed the spectacular views of the Great Rift Valley. We would like to have you in future to explore other destinations.

    This trip exceeded my expectations and was worth every penny! I opted for a private day safari to Lake Nakuru and a boat ride on Lake Naivasha. I do photography and preferred the private excursion so I could focus on getting the shots I wanted. My guide Peter was wonderful and
