Day 4. African Safari: Crescent Island Hike


This tour remains in the Rift Valley lakes so we now move to the recently opened Lake Naivasha Sawela Lodge, our base for three days, in time for lunch. The green lawns are shaded by mature acacias that stretch down to the lake's shore.

In the afternoon we do an African game viewing hike at the privately owned Crescent Island, which is a peninsula on the eastern shore of Lake Naivasha. There is a lot of easy to see game e.g. giraffes, waterbucks, elands, zebras and impalas. It is also a heaven for birds with +200 species recorded.


We return to the Sawela Lodge in time for afternoon tea.


Day 5. Kenya Safari Adventure: Hell's Gate Hike

We wake up for breakfast with the sun giving a wonderful effect over the lake. An early morning here should not be missed by anyone with an eye for birds since the lake boasts a wide variety of water and woodland birds.


After breakfast we do a short transfer to the Hell's Gate National Park. This is a unique park where hiking is done in the middle of wildlife. Giraffes, zebras, warthogs and many types of gazelles are found here. The first part of this walk is done in typical flat African savanna in a volcanic area with huge rock boundaries. There are camphor and acacia trees all over and this is where to look for the giraffe as they mainly feed on them. A picnic lunch provided by the hotel will be at a viewpoint on the Hell's Gate gorge.


The last part of our hiking day is in the canyon with wild vegetation and running water from geysers. Conditions allowing, we will walk in the Side Gorge where the rocks have split to leave only a walking path. We climb back to the Rangers Post for transfer back to the Sawela Lodge.


Day 6. African Safari Adventure: Crater Lake


African safari adventure, Crater Lake, Kenya.


An early rising will ensure that one gets another magical display of the various birds. After breakfast we do a transfer by bus to the nearby Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. It is a lesser lake in the Rift Valley but a place where nature is at its best. We do a walk in the nature reserve followed by a hike on the top of the crater from where we see the lake from various angles. Pleasant interruptions on the walks will be from giraffes, black and white Colobus monkeys, elands and a range of gazelles.


Day 7. Kenya Safari Adventure: Kiambethu Tea Farm + to Nairobi for outbound flight


Our hiking vacation ends with a lunch at the Kiambethu Tea Farm. This is an old colonial home established by the early settlers and the pioneers of tea growing in Kenya. There will be a talk on tea: its arrival in Kenya, the growing, processing and up to when you put it into your cup. A short hike in the tea plantation and into a small remaining part of indigenous forest completes the tour. We have a healthy farm lunch and thereafter transfer to Nairobi for the evening flight out.
