Walking safaris near to Nairobi (day trips)

Are there any walking excursions through game parks (or other countryside) that are offered as part of a day trip out of the city? Any suggestions would be very welcome. Also any similar excursions that offer pleasant outdoor exercise rather than, for instance, traveling in a vehicle for most of the day?

Nairobi National Park is much nearer than Naivasha. Magadi is HOT!!

I think I'd choose Naivasha and Hell's Gate for you!!

Also have a look at Karura Forrest that has beautiful nature trails that are well sign posted.

Is there a website where I can find a list of recommended tour operators who cover these excursions?

In Nairobi, there are a couple of places to engage in a nature walk apart from the Nairobi National park Safari walk, here are a few:

Oloolua Nature Trail

Bird Watching walk at Karura forest

Boat riding and fishing at Paradise lost

Nature walk at the labyrinth of caves at Paradise lost

Visit Kiambethu Tea Farm for a Kenya colonial history and lunch

Visit Brown’s Cheese Tasting Room for a cheese tasting session

If you want to walk amongst animals (zebras, giraffes etc) I can really recommend the walks offered at Crater Lake, which is near Lake Naivasha. The guide is very good and you get close to the animals. However I do not recommend eating or staying there - the food is very average. For lunch I suggest you try Camp Carnelley's.

Ask Lenny of Loita Trekkers to hook you up with a Walking Safari. He's a local Masai specialising in walking safaris.
