A colleague and I took the Hell's Gate National park and Boat ride on lake Naivasha day trip with Perfect Safaris Africa and it was a great experience end to end. Paul was our main guide for the day and he made us feel welcome at pick up and answered all of our questions along the way. On arrival to Hell's Gate National Park we meet our guide for the cycle and gorge, Gadafi, who was another great guide and made sure we had a wonderful experience exploring the gorge and safely cycling close to giraffes, zebras, pumas, and other animals. The gorge was the highlight of the day. Finally, we ended the day with a boat ride on Lake Naivasha and safari walk which was led by a third guide. Overall the experience was great and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see animals and get out of Nairobi for a day. Ask for Paul!

We had an amazing experience with Simba. He picked us up early in the morning (around 6:45am) directly from the Airbnb we were staying at in Nairobi. It is important to get going early to avoid extreme heat and see the animals (as they are not as visible in the late afternoon/early evening because they hide under trees to avoid heat).

We had an amazing bike ride through Hell’s Gate National Park and saw wildlife 95% of the ride (giraffes, zebras, warthogs, gazelles, impalas, etc...). The ride was very good exercise, but it was not too difficult!

After that, we were able to visit some beautiful hot springs and go on a brief hike through the canyon. After riding back, we traveled over to Lake Naviasha where we had lunch and went boating with hippos! This was one of my favorite parts of the tour and we were able to see all sorts of wildlife.

Simba was very lovely and great about answering any questions we had on the tour or just about Kenyan culture in general. It was a very fun trip!!

The trip was well organized and very informative. The bike ride through Hell’s gate national park was tougher than I expected so be prepared with plenty of water/sunscreen and camera because there are truly stunning views and landscape to capture. Being on the lake was quite a treat and the boat drivers were super skillful and provided some good information on the different bird species. Recommend you rest well the day before because it makes for a very long day.

My guide Paul was very knowledgeable and was amazing to deal with. He went above and beyond throughout.

What a day!🙂

2 hours from Nairobi to Hell flew fast, Hell cycling, zebras, ziraffs crossing tje road right next to you...

Climbing the rock formation was something else, the istructor did it in 4 mins, took me 25 mins (never climbed anything but ladder...) up but was worth all the hard effort! But mist admot nearly gave up - 3 times! Strongly reccomend to do it. Easier route is also possible.

Boating - 2 hours trip on the lake, to sea hypos, tons of bids and even eagles which got tricked by the boat guyde to pick a fish bite from surface of tje water! Amazing!

My tour oveall guide Paul Oiugi was simply the best I could have wished for. Tons of patience to answer my neverending question, accomodation tje most bizzar wishes such as eat where locals eat, only locally produced, well far beyond what was his duty!

If it is possible, Paul will make it happen!!!!

Tha k you Paul, if back to Nairobi, i will be coming tight back to you again!

Asante sana!!

My tour to Hell's Gate National Park and Lake Naivasha was phenomenal and my tour guide, Peter, went above and beyond to ensure I enjoyed my tour. Peter is extremely knowledgable about the area and quite funny.

The trip to Hell's Gate requires a rather lengthy bike ride, and Peter goes at your pace, which I appreciated. Hell's Gate offers a stunning view of the countryside of Kenya and is 100% worth the ride.

George and his guide are so caring and will make you feel so safe and plan the trip so you can have the maximum exposure and experiences possible. The lunch spot at the lake is delicious and the lake ride is one of a lifetime. Also bike riding to where the lion king’s animation is based is highly recommended to Disney geeks and everyone else

Our guides Santa and Peter were extremely knowledgable, friendly and helpfull. The MTB trip was an easy and relaxing cycle. The lake cruise which included seeing hippos, countless birds and feeding the fish-eagles is a must.
Food next to lake was great.

2.5 hours from Nairobi, and well worth the day trip. Peter, our driver, was very knowledgeable and professional. The bike ride was one of the most enjoyable things I did in Kenya. We were able to spend some of the time in the park rock climbing, which was incredible. The route around the back was approximately a 5.9, and perfect for our group. The subsequent boat ride around the lake included several hippo sightings, and lots of views of several species of fish hunting bird.

Overall, 10/10, couldn't be happier.

I had a great day trip to Hells Gate and the lake. We started with a view of the Rift Valley and then to Hells gate where we biked through the park and then walked the paths around the gorge. After went to the lake for the boat tour which was awesome! Peter O. was a great guide and adjusted the tour to account for the fact that I am a more avid cyclist. We explored side paths and rode a bit more than others in the park. He was also very knowledgeable and super engaging and easy to talk to. I highly recommend!

We spent an incredible day with our guide Peter.
Peter made this excursion an incredible day.
Very nice driving. Visit of the Hell's gate with explanations. Very patient with us because for the bike ride it was very very hot. Then small escapade on the lake Nakuru very rich in emotion!
Thanks again for everything and especially thanks Peter.
