Map showing route of Africa Kenya Safaris 2 day safari tour to Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha

These two Rift Valley lakes show off their own colorful kind of safari experience. Think lots of birdlife and grazing wildlife in the forests and along the shores. An easy drive from Nairobi will transport you to a different sort of pastoral world where you will be able to sail and walk amongst wildlife like zebra, giraffe, rhino, gazelle… and closer than you thought possible.

Our first stop will be Lake Nakuru National Park, a colorful mix of acacia forests, waterfalls, birdlife, and the lake itself. You’ll also find larger game – the special sanctuary here offers opportunities to see both black and white rhinos. You may find giraffes and even lions and leopards have been spotted.

Nearby Lake Naivasha is an equally charming haven with grazing zebra, antelope, and impala gathered along the shore. We’ll view these and others on an easy sailing safari across the lake, floating past the birdlife and hippos.

Another bonus is nearby Crescent Island Sanctuary, a private reserve busy with roaming wildebeest, waterbuck, and more gentle grazers. We’ll leave our 4 x 4 Jeep to meander amongst them on this tranquil adventure.

Join up with other nature lovers on this Africa Kenya Safaris value-based group safari.

What’s Cool About Nakuru and Naivasha?

There are lots of elements of landscape, color, and wildlife at these high-elevation parks. Acacia forests, towering cliffs, plenty of birdlife, and easy walks amongst the wildlife add to the peaceful vibe of these accessible reserves.

Day 1

Nairobi - Lake Nakuru National Park

3 Hour Drive

7:30 – Hop onto your 4 x 4 Safari Jeep for the easy ride to Lake Nakuru National Park. Along our route, we’ll take in the farms of the central highlands in the early light and enjoy the dramatic landforms of the Rift Valley escarpment.

Arriving at Lake Nakuru you’re certain to be delighted by the park’s natural beauty – waterfalls, acacia forests, the alkaline lake, and rocky peaks.

The birdlife here is abundant – pelicans, storks, herons, and sometimes you’ll even see bright, dazzling flamingoes, adorning the lakefront.

But we’ll also be looking for lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino on the plains and in the wooded areas.

Day 2

Lake Nakuru - Lake Naivasha - Crescent Island

Today is a triple-threat – 3 parks! We’ll take a last game drive through Lake Nakuru on the way to Lake Naivasha. This is another Rift Valley lake, but the wildlife and birds found here are a bit different owing to the lake’s freshwater.

You’ll see hippos bathing in the water on your sailing safari across the lake. While nearby, over on the shore, look for buffalo, eland, and grazing antelope.

Our third reserve on this compact safari is nearby Crescent Island Sanctuary. We’ll take a quick trip to this small but delightful park and enjoy a guided walking tour past wildebeest, waterbuck, zebra, and gazelle. This is the best way to get close to these gently grazing animals.

Now it’s time to head back to Nairobi and we’ll get you to the destination of your choice by the early evening. We’ve taken in lots of landscapes, colors, and especially wildlife in our 2-day adventure.

We hope you had fun and are ready for more safari action. All of us at Africa Kenya Safaris thank you for sharing this time with us. Thank you – Asante!
