Kenya has been endowed with a big chunk of the great rift valley.Running at a length of 6000 km from the middle east in northern Syria, through to east Africa in central Mozambique.The riftvalley runs almost the length of Kenya.

There are 7 Lakes on the floor of the Kenyan rift valley, among these are lake Naivasha being the highest in elevation at 1910 m A.S.L and 80km from the capital city of Nairobi, then lake nakuru and bogoria 156km and 290 km respectively. All with a rich flora and fauna and  each with a world recognized unique physical features. They offer a similary unique safari for the adventurer.



Early morning drive to lake Naivasha and hells gate national park for a whole day of adventurous activities.


Lake Naivasha is the most beautiful lake in the great rift valley whose size is 139 square km.  It is a complete contradiction to the adjoining hells gate national park in terms of physical features.

A fresh warter lake surrounded by many a flower farm with their big green houses,a mixture of both agricultural tour, bird watching and hiking is a real possibility.The shores of the lake are fringed with a swamp of dense clumps of papyrus with an abundant birdlife(400 species have been spotted) and can be navigated in a motor boat.

The adjoining Hells gate national park is an enigma on its own right,covering an area of 68.25 square km,it is very warm and dry with 2 walls of towering rock which used to be the lakes outlet now elevated 10 m higher than the present lake and presently being the entrance into the park. The Fischers tower and the central tower depicting the great works of nature. The park is one of the only two where you can both cycle or walk in the midst of wild animals.

At rangers post tighten your hiking  boots and your spirit of adventure to hike down the hellsgate gorge lined with red walls and volcanic plugs. A geothermal power station rumbles somewhere nearby ,generating green renewable power from steam harnessed from the volcanic underground.

About 103 species of birds are found here, vereux eagle, augur buzzard, lammergeyer vulture being just a highlight. You can also see the African buffalo, the maasai giraffe, the serval cat and least of all the olive baboon.

After the adventure you will retire to a lodge or campsite at the shores of the lake to savour sundowners,dinner and overnight stay.
