DAY 1 - NAIROBI - LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK - LAKE NAIVASHA
Departing from Nairobi after breakfast, you'll make the three-hour drive across beautiful landscapes to Lake Nakuru National Park.
While the park's resident flamingos have since moved on, the park is still home to four of the Big five (you won't see elephants here) as well as a huge variety of birdlife. Your half-day game drive in the park will showcase some of Kenya's most beautiful terrain while you spot large herds of buffaloes, families of baboons, both black and white rhinoceroses, and even lazy lions and leopards.
In the afternoon, you'll continue on to Lake Naivasha. While not a national park itself, Lake Naivasha is famous for its scenic boat safaris. You'll spot hippos, buffaloes, and a variety of water birds on your way to the Crescent Island Sanctuary.
Crescent Island is a chance for you to get out and walk alongside giraffes, zebras, antelopes, and more.
You'll then overnight in one of the nearby lodges.
DAY 2 - LAKE NAIVASHA - HELL'S GATE NATIONAL PARK - NAIROBI
You'll set off for Hell's Gate National Park after breakfast.
Hell's Gate is a park for the adventurous, making up for its lack of predators and big game with a variety of fun activities for the outdoors enthusiast.
You'll take a guided cycling tour through the park's canyons and plateaux on your way to the famous hiking gorges, where you'll have a half-climbing, half-hiking adventure through these colourful canyons.
The more adventurous at heart will also have the opportunity to climb Fisher's Tower.
You'll then return to Nairobi in time for dinner at your hotel.
