2 DAYS LAKE NAIVASHA/NAKURU ATTRACTIONS
In just two days you’ll get to explore all the color, wildlife, and diversity of these two attractive Rift Valley lakes. Freshwater Lake Naivasha hosts hippo and other aquatic life attracted to its shores. Lake Nakuru is alkaline, drawing in bright, pink flamingoes, pelicans, kingfishers and ostriches. Making both these lake areas even more exciting are the herds of wildlife surrounding their shores – wildlife like zebra, giraffe, rhino. This mini safari boasts a wonderful variety of animals for you to spot.
Lake Nakuru National Park is a fascinating mix of dazzling birdlife with the more traditional land-based safari wildlife. There’s a rhino sanctuary that features a large population of white and black rhino. You can also find the rare Rothschild’s giraffe feeding in the park’s acacia forests. Other unexpected surprises moving over its shores and through its woodlands – waterbucks, hyenas, baboons and monkeys.
There’s so much to see and do at Lake Naivasha and close-by Crescent Island Sanctuary. Besides going on game drives , you may find yourself taking a boat safari and a walking safari to get up close to the wildlife. All of this in two very active days filled with new memories for you. If you think of anything special you’d like to add or do, talk to us and Homeland Adventures Kenya will work to make it happen.
