“Lake Naivasha kenya trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Broad yet shallow, Lake Naivasha lays claim to a unique history, having entirely dried up at the beginning of the 20th century, only to reappear years later, brought back to life by heavy rains. Beautiful and serene in the daytime, the lake’s waters are often whipped into dramatic waves by late afternoon thundershowers. This turbulent characteristic led to the local Maasai naming the lake Na’iposha, meaning “rough water”.
Two smaller lakes, Oloidien and the bright green crater lake of Sonachi lie nearby. The shores of the lake form part of Hell’s Gate National Park, named for its huge red cliffs and the bubbling thermal springs that they shelter. Its home to a variety of wildlife, including families of hippo,Over 400 species of birds found along the lake shores,Scenic forests of yellow fever trees and lush swamps.Explored the lake on spectacular boat trip well arranged by Super cats tours and travel.

“Lake Nakuru”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

It was very nice to see variety of animals, however, it would be nice if the zoo keepers could track the feline animals and direct the visitors to see these sorted animals. The Kenyan government needs to vamp up and improve the roads and surrounding communities that lead to this zoo. Overall, we were very overjoyed to have seen different wild animals.

“Guided tours”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Went to the park and decided to go with a friend who had been there many times, guaranteed to see loads of animals she says. No go,drove for miles and saw very little wild life,better off going to Longleat for the day. Soooo take an organised tour, the tour guides keep in touch with the other guides by radio so they can tell all the guides where the animals are hanging out.

“Wima Tours - Lake Nakuru”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

My son and I had a wonderful two days in and around Nairobi. Although I had been through Nairobi several times on way to Arusha, Tanzania, I had not taken the opportunity to see the sights. Wima Tours organised an itinerary that took in the major attractions including the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage, Karen Blixon's home, a walk around Nairobi and a one day tour to Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha. Having seen many game sanctuaries, Lake Nakuru National Park did not disappoint! Thank you to the very friendly and helpful staff at Wima Tours for organising the two days, accommodation in Nairobi, airport transfers and shuttle bus to and from Arusha.

“Hot air ballooning over Lake Elementaita”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Mindblowing experience ! The hot air balloon ride was organized by the owners of the Sun Bird Lodge [ superbly located and exquisitely done up place, perched atop a hill overlooking Lake Elementaita - a view to die for !] . We spotted a variety of birds on the lake, including pelicans and then gently drifted over the 48,000 acre Soysambu Conservancy [ part of Lord Delamere's estate] which is home to over 15,000 wild animals including the Rothschild giraffe, zebra, wild buffalo and several species of antelope. The grand finale - a proper bush breakfast with champagne, with the giraffes for company !!!
