A typical Wildlife Safari in Naivasha

Taking a safari in Naivasha is miles apart from your typical safari that would happen in any other location in Kenya. A lot of people argue that Naivasha is the sugar, spice and everything nice when talking destinations.

Naivasha has a rare pinch of uniqueness that can only be found in the town. That not only applies to going on a Safari but also if you’re on an expedition. This is because Naivasha is regarded as a place of diversity. Natural and physical resources, birds, wildlife, plants and even the people and lodges in Naivasha bring forth nothing but joy, fun and comfort to the table.

A typical wildlife safari in Naivasha would be distinctive because one can either sail, drive, ride or hike their way throughout the terrain. Be in any other place and driving would be the only option on the table.

This is how you can have the perfect safari in Naivasha.

A Game ride at Lake Naivasha National Park

Lake Naivasha National Park is vast enough to provide you with the perfect safari setting that anyone would crave for. Unlike safaris in other national parks, one at this park will make you feel the most intimate with nature. That alludes to the fact that there’s no Big Five at his park, therefore, can stroll in and around the park on a bike, on foot or take a game drive as well.

The park is always calm, has the perfect scenery comprised of a breath-taking sunset and sunrise on the horizon. The ideal safari would be summed up by visiting the lakeshore in the park for the amazing view of animals taking gulps of water just before dusk and not mentioning all the grazers grazing in unison with no predator in site to make them feel endangered.

 

Mountain Bike Safari

Yes, you can have a safari on two wheels in typical Naivasha fashion. The rocky Hells Gate National park would be the ultimate spot for you to engage in such. Here, you’ll get to enjoy site seeing and it’s all magnificence anywhere you place your eyes.

Be sure to see wildlife in its exemplary environment ranging buffalos to giraffes and gazelles to deer. The icing on the cake is riding to the highest point to have the flawless and consummate look of the gorges that make the park all famous.

 

Lake Safari

A trip to Naivasha without a boat ride wouldn’t be regarded as a faultless trip. The argument that a safari only consists of the bush, the big five or a predator running after its meal is put to bed in Naivasha. The lake gives you the chance to explore further and get out of the traditional safari meaning as you indulge yourself in a calm and flawless boat ride around the lake.

From the boat, you’ll be able to see wildlife grazing from the lake shores or get a glimpse of the variety of fish and fishermen going about their business. The birdlife is also exemplary as no other place in the country has such a rich birdlife or more species of birds than what is found in Lake Naivasha.

With world-class and luxury lodges available in private conservancies or within the park accommodation in Naivasha has never been made better. Your ultimate safari is a mere two hours away from Nairobi to get yourself or your family a time of your lives.
