Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha

So take a drive to Lake Naivasha - the name comes from the Maasai 'enaiposha' meaning restless water.

Here you will see zebra and rhino - but you will be very lucky to see any leopard or cheetah. Your afternoon game drive will take in all of the park surrounding the lake, with many species of birds - over 500 in fact - and in the evening stay at the Naivasha Simba Lodge.

Here in the nearby park you will see Giraffe right by your lodge, and in the lake the promise of the hippopotamus but you will have to be very fortunate indeed to see them here because they will have retired to the far side of the lake for the evening - but we'll see them tomorrow.

After dinner sit on the veranda and enjoy a drink or two with your fellow guests. The staff here are enormously friendly, and will have great fun teasing you about the white rhino in the grounds (we still don't know if there is one!)

Hell's Gate

Hell's Gate

Get up early (in fact on safari you really need to be up at 4am each day to see the wildlife) and take the drive to Hell's Gate. When you arrive at the lakeside you will take a short boat ride (it's a little wooden dingy) to the Hell's Gate park. There is a suitably devilish display as you arrive at the park.

Here you will see giraffe and zebra up close (in the picture below we were just a few feet from the giraffe when we took that photograph).

Hippo

You will finally see the hippo here as well - and get quite close in the boat. Don't be deceived - these are incredibly dangerous creatures.

Plenty of other wildlife can be seen here also - the African fish eagle to name but one. The best opportunity for photographs of the birds will come whilst you are on the boat, and there is the choice to take a quick spin all around the edge of the lake.

Most of your safari adventure will be spent in a 4 wheel drive - but not here. This experience is just unlike any other because you are strolling through the park amongst the animals - almost impossible to describe. Don't miss this trip!

Game drives are early in the morning, and late in the afternoon. You may only be on safari for a few days, so make the most of it. More...
