Rift Valley Lakes

Rift Valley Lakes

The Rift Valley area is just a couple of hours drive from Nairobi and makes an excellent one or two night stop when driving from Nairobi to the Masai Mara. The area boasts Lake Nakuru National Park (Kenya's second most visited Park) which has large flamingo and pelican populations in addition to lion, giraffe and white and black rhino. Although small in size, and not offering the wilderness feel of some more remote parks, it is hard not to be impressed by the density of wildlife in Nakuru.

Once a mainstay of safaris in Kenya, the trend towards fly-in safaris means many choose to skip this region. However, if you are travelling by road, the Rift Valley is in our minds a must visit.

  • We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.

    Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.

    Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.

    Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!

    One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.

    Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

  • We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.

    Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!

    We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.

    Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!
