ETS N362 3 Days 2 Nights Lake Naivasha - Hells Gate

Lake Naivasha Lake Naivasha is the highest and purest of all the Rift Valley Lakes at 1880 m above sea level. This area is a birdwatcher's paradise with over 450 species of recorded birds in the area. A small islet on the lake is home to a number of wildlife. Visitors can enjoy a boat ride safari as they view wildlife and birds from the tranquil lake. A private ranch (Kongoni Game Sanctuary) is located in the area which is a home to lions, leopards, cheetah and some translocated Gravys zebras.

Hell’s Gate

Hell's Gate National Park provides a truly panoramic picnic site, camping stop over and is also an endless biodiversity which allows walking or cycling without an official KWS escort. It has spectacular scenery, despite its rather alarming name, including the towering cliffs, water gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub-clad volcanoes and belching plumes of a natural geothermal steam. It is a relatively small park cleft deep in the floor of the Rift Valley. In the undulating grasslands, you can walk alongside herds of buffalo, zebra, giraffe, eland and hartebeest and Thompsons Gazelle.
