Walk through a landscape of high cliffs and rustling grasslands on a full-day adventure tour from Nairobi to Hell’s Gate National Park, one of just two Kenyan parks where you can leave the car behind to explore on foot. Watch for herds of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle and eland as you follow trails through the park, searching for signs of cheetahs and ostrich along the way.

Departure Time

7:30 AM
Meet your local guide at your Nairobi hotel for the 2- to 2.5-hour trip to Hell’s Gate National Park, driving through a scenic landscape of plains with views of Lake Naivasha. Learn about the remarkable plants and animals that thrive within the park, including over 130 bird species.

Take in dramatic views of soaring, red cliffs, deep gorges and basalt columns, and enjoy the freedom to explore on foot. Experience the thrill of seeing large, plant-eating game animals outside the vehicle in a region where great herds of zebra thunder past baboons, buffalo and hartebeest. Find out how to spot signs of leopard, cheetah, and the long-legged serval cats that hunt in the tall grass.

Break for lunch at a nearby restaurant—this is the perfect time to taste regional Kenyan food and mingle with local Maasai in a casual setting. After lunch, continue to the Elsamere Conservation Center, a wildlife conservation center at the edge of Lake Naivasha. Hear the story of Joy and George Adamson, whose former home now supports a troop of black and white colobus monkeys that you can spot playing in the acacia trees and peaceful gardens. Finish the day with return transfer to your hotel in Nairobi.

the local tour company has no idea what promises this viator giving you when you book the tour, its only driving you from city to the park and returning you from park to city. as you have to pay extra for every single entrance during the day tour. so 140 usd instead of paying to this tour company if you pay only 1 /3 of it to a driver you do the tour yourself . secondly there was no such masai visit or anything the way they put the colorful pics of masai dressed pple , they only take you to a small nonsense stalls where they try to sell you some dodgy crafts at an excessive amount of money. when you ask the ( tour guide ! ) literally a driver only no input , no info , no service at all , he tells you no theres no such masai people here i dont know where did you see these pictures ! when you ask him about the lunch , he tells you , no theres no lunch or anything, so how do you expect people from 6 am onwards all day without any lunch even water , he says no but theres a place by the lake if you like to pay for the lake boat tour you can order some food there and wait more than 1 hour for the order to be ready . so with many things promised in the tour package and what you get is completely frustrating . try to do it yourself, negotiate with a driver , even your hotel`s driver by paying only half or 1/3 of the price this tour is asking for as its not fair paying in nairobi 140 usd and get literally only a driver but nothing more . at least you can make him stop where you like ot stop . even water mentioned on their tour detail when you ask him okay wheres the water , there`s nowhere to get any water here , he just smiles at you as if why you are bothered only for a bottle water you making it an issue kind of . yes an organized lunch and water was very important for me and seeing some masai people and take some pics with them , thats why i dared ot pay this outrageous amount in such a poor country where you could literally have a driver to driver around for 2 /3 days not only to hells gate . dont pay for this nonsense
