After a heavy breakfast very early in the morning we leave for Sagana arriving in time for briefing about the adventure we start our white-water adventure on a few smaller rapids to ensure you’ve got the hang of the whole paddling technique, then we venture downstream to take on some of the “gnarlier” rapids. The degree of complexity and size of each rapid depends on the amount of water flowing down the river at the time of your visit, but with names like Captain’s Folly and Can of Worms you should brace yourselves for a pretty wild ride!
We return to camp for lunch, afternoon can be spent rock climbing and taking nature walks along the rive. Dinner and overnight at the Sagana Rapids Camp/Alternatively drive back to your hotel in Nairobi (2hrs drive).
After a very early breakfast we leave for Mount Longonot for Mountain Climbing/Trekking/Hiking Adventure Safari. The trail up to the crater of Mount Longonot is just over 3 kilometres long, but in sections it really is quite steep. The views from this point are absolutely stunning – looking down onto the forested crater floor or beyond the volcano to the vast swathe of land below. But for those with the stamina, a further hour-long trek (one-way) will put you right on the summit for an uninterrupted, 360º view. We have lunch on our return to camp, then drive a relatively short distance (1 hour) to the shores of Lake Naivasha. Here, you can take an optional boat trip onto the freshwater lake to get a little closer to a few of Naivasha’s resident hippos. The bird life here is also exceptional, alternatively you can engage in a walking safari in The Cresent Island Game Reserve. Dinner and overnight in a camp.
After breakfast we drive to the entrance of Hell’s Gate – one of only a few National Parks where you can move about on foot or by bike. We take the two-wheeled option first up – cycling alongside grazing zebras and possibly galloping giraffes! From the Ranger station it is possible to descend on foot into a smaller, quite spectacular gorge. With a packed lunch to enjoy along the way. Later in the afternoon drive back to Nairobi where your Adventure Safari ends
