Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake along the rift valley. It is famous for its high density of waterbirds. And the nearby Hells Gate national park has towering cliffs which is an important breeding site for the Ruppells vulture. A day trip here would start early in the morning, leaving from Nairobi and would end at sunset in the evening. Join us for this thrilling birdwatching safari at Lake Naivasha and Hells Gate National Park!
