Lake Nakuru National Park is one of Kenya’s two Premium Parks, and is a birdlover’s paradise. It surrounds Lake Nakuru, located in the Central Rift Conservation Area in the Southern Rift Valley region of Kenya. Originally protected as a bird sanctuary, this park hosts over 400 bird species, including 5 globally threatened species, and is an important stop on the African-Eurasian Migratory Flyway. Other animals to watch out include;

  • Lion
  • Rhino
  • Giraffe
  • Bufallo

And many more. Our next stop is a private island sanctuary called Crescent Island Game Sanctuary where we will take a guided walking safari. Crescent Island is on the shores of Lake Naivasha – this beautiful park is a secret hidden from most tourists. But not us!

Our walking safari will take us past grazing hippos, giraffe and zebra. You can’t get much nearer to the wildlife than on this up close day trip.


Nairobi - Lake Nakuru National Park

(160 km, 2.5 - 3 hours)

Get an early, 05:00am start with pickup at your Nairobi hotel, Nairobi Residence or Nairobi Airport, and enjoy views of the Great Rift Valley as you make the three hour drive to Lake Nakuru National Park in our private 4 x 4 Safari Jeep. Upon arrival, go deep into the park on a 3 hour game drive with your safari 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 2:00 pm, 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 with stops to spot some of Navaisha’s vast bird population, watch eagles feeding, and see the hippos that wallow along the grassy shoreline.

We shall finally visit the Crescent Island where the resident naturalists will guide us on a walking safari around the sanctuary. We may spot Giraffe, Zebra, Antelopes, Waterbuck and more during the short walking safari.

Return to shore for an early evening ride to Nairobi, then finish the tour at around 06:00 p, where we shall drop you off at your Nairobi Hotel, Nairobi Residence or Nairobi Airport.
