Day 1- We can depart Nairobi this morning, passing through the Great Rift Valley for magnificent views and photos. We will arrive out our camp in time for lunch, and after pitching up we can cycle to Elsa Mere Conservation Center founded in honour of Joy Adamson, who played an important role in wildlife preservation in Kenya. After a history tour and a 4 o’clock film, we can return to our camp site for dinner.
Day 2- After breakfast we can cycle to the Elsa mere gate and on to the Rangers Point. From here we can take a two hike through the Gorges Valley, and return to the Rangers Point for lunch. After our picnic, we can cycle to the hot springs at the Geothermal Plant, and then exit the park through the nearby Olkaria gate. If you like, it is also possible to do rock climbing in the park this afternoon. We will have returned to our camp where you may have time to spot hippos while exploring the lake shore, before dinner.
Day 3- This morning we can cycle down to the Crater Lake, rich with pink Flamingoes and climbing with Colobus monkeys. After our lake circuit, we can have a picnic lunch before returning to our camp for a relaxing afternoon by the lake or a boat ride this afternoon out to Crescent island; one of the few places on the entire African continent where it’s possible to wander on foot among herds of wildebeest, gazelle, zebra and giraffe– without the worry of predators lurking!!
Day 4- If you wish to return to Nairobi today, we have time for a boat ride on Lake Naivasha for hippo spotting and bird watching, before hitting the road. If you would like to explore this lush region a little longer, you could opt to trek the extinct volcano of Mt. Logonot, which erupted over 100 years ago for a unique day climb, before heading onto the Mt. Kenya region for many nature expedition options.
