Know More about this tour

Enjoy a complimentary hotel pickup from your centrally located hotel in Nairobi. Our professional driver will introduce himself in a friendly manner and offer you a brief introduction to the trip ahead. You will be ushered to a luxurious open roofed van and set off for Lake Nakuru National park with a stop at the great Rift valley view point for panoramic views and photography.
You will arrive after 3 hours drive for gate entry and game drives.

The lake is world-famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth - myriads of fuchsia pink flamingos whose numbers are legion, often more than a million - or even two million. They feed on the abundant algae, which thrives in the warm waters. Scientists reckon that the flamingo population at Nakuru consumes about 250,000kg of algae per hectare of surface area per year.

The park now (2009) has more than 25 eastern black rhinoceros, one of the largest concentrations in the country, plus around 70 endemic southern white rhinos. There are also a number of Rothschild's giraffe, again relocated for safety from western Kenya beginning in 1977. Waterbuck are very common and both the Kenyan species are found here. Among the predators are Masai lions, cheetahs and leopards, the latter being seen much more frequently in recent times. The park also has large sized pythons that inhabit the dense woodlands, and can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees.
You will enjoy your hot lunch at Sarova lion hill camp. Later, you will continue with game drives and leave the park for Nairobi arriving at around 7.00pm. By now, you will have great testimonies to share.

    We booked a day tour to both Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha with a boat tour. We had an amazing time with our guide Titus who was super friendly, very knowledgeable and master of the road! He was so safe even through that famous Nairobi traffic. We were picked up at 5.45am in a clean, safe safari van along with another passenger and made our way to Lake Nakuru. We stopped at the breathtaking views of Rift Valley before arriving at Lake Nakuru for a game drive. Titus helped us spot lots of animals from Zebra, Buffalo, Baboons, Antelope, Rhinos (Black and White!), Giraffes and a lion (although it was very quick before it disappeared into the bush!) We stopped at a picnic spot in the park which so nice. We then made our way to Lake Naivasha and took a boat trip on the lake to spot soooo many hippos, birds of prey and other wildlife. Watching a fish eagle dive in and catch it’s food was unbelievably cool! Seeing the hippos up close was an absolute treat. Prompt return back to the hotel! Thank you John and Titus for an amazing day.

    First time to Kenya and this tour did not disappoint! John (the owner) organised my whole day and the communication couldn’t have been better. My driver was Titus for the day and he was fun, friendly and knowledgable. Really recommend him for all tours. Lake Nukuru was absolutely breathtaking and Titus was telling us all the different kind of birds, animals and spotted so many things I wouldn’t have seen. We had to wait for a bit to go on the boat in Navaisha because of the weather but it was a great experience once we went on as we got so close to hippos. It was incredible. Thank you so much for this amazing day team, it was really special and I have now got unforgettable memories! I will be back!

    It was our first time to Kenya, and Kenya Bush Expedition Tour operators took excellent care of us from the day we arrived till our departure (airport pick up and drop off included). Our guides/drivers, Titus and Steven were extremely professional, kind and knowledgable. They accompanied us on our trip to Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha as well as took us to Masai Mara and back. John, the tour operator was very accommodating and helped plan out our journey to perfection. Had a great experience overall and highly recommend Kenya Bush Expeditions.

    Its a bit worrying when deciding which company to use for tours when in new areas. I was a bit nervous to book our trip , but i decided to try this company. we were picked from our apartment early in the money with no delay,, the driving was okay and we felt safe in the hands of the driver. The park was wonderful and we spotted many animals. name them, lions,Buffalo's, Rhinoceros , Giraffes and many more. The lunch was also perfect at lake Nakuru lodge. On return, we passed through Lake Naivasha and the lake is a heavens wonder. Many birds and hippopotamus! Thanks kenya bush for well done tour!!
