Hell's Gate National Park provides a truly panoramic picnic site, camping stop over and is also an endless biodiversity which allows walking or cycling without an official KWS escort.  It has spectacular scenery, despite its rather alarming name, including the towering cliffs, water gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub-clad volcanoes and belching plumes of a natural geothermal steam.  It is a relatively small park cleft deep in the floor of the Rift Valley.  In the undulating grasslands, you can walk alongside herds of buffalo, zebra, giraffe, eland and hartebeest and Thompson’s Gazelle. The park has a unique bird viewing hide which allows visitors to view and photograph the birds of prey at a close range. The hide is booked as a small fee via the warden of the park. The Fischer’s Tower is a high jagged volcanic plug that remained of an ancient volcano and is named after the German explorer, Gustav Fischer.  According to the local Maasai tradition, the rock is the petrified figure of a chief’s daughter who turned around, against the dictates of tradition to take one last look of her village before leaving to be married.  The Ol Karia Geothermal Station also lies in this park, being one of the hottest sources of natural.Lunch, dinner and overnight stay will be at Crayfish Camp or similar.

Mt. Longonot is a dormant volcano located south east of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley. Its name is derived from the Maasai word "oloonong'ot" which means "mountains of many spurs" or "steep ridges". The area is protected by the Kenya Wildlife Service as part of Mt. Longonot National Park. A trail runs from the park's entrance to the crater rim and continues in a loop encircling the crater. A forest of beautiful trees covers the crater floor as small steam vents are found spaced around the walls of the crater. The mountain is home to various species of wildlife, such as the zebra, giraffe and buffalo. Leopards have also been reported but are extremely difficult to spot.Dinner and overnight at Crayfish Camp or similar

Lake Nakuru is a shallow strongly alkaline lake set in a picturesque landscape of surrounding woodland and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with a Euphorbia forest. The lakes catchment is bounded by the Menengai crater to the North, the Bahati hills to the north east, the lion hill ranges to the east, Eburu crater to the south and the Mau escarpment to the west. Three rivers, the Njoro, Makalia and the Enderit drain into the lake. Some wildlife species that may interest you include the buffaloes, Thompson’s and Grant’s Gazelles, the rare long-eared leaf-nosed bats, Colubus monkeys, rock hyraxes, hippos, leopards, lions, rhino, waterbuck, impala, striped hyena, wild cat and the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe. Lake Nakuru National Park also has a large population of lion, buffalo and hundreds of plains game which graze the shoreline throughout the year.Dinner and overnight at Jumuia Nakuru Guesthouse.  

Lake Bogoria is not often visited by tourists and yet it has stunning scenery. Bogoria is a soda lake hence does not have any outlet. Intense evaporation has led to high levels of salt and minerals.  Beautiful and captivating hot springs and baths provide a natural spa for visitors in as much as they are dangerous. The lake has an absence of fish due to high salt levels but its waters contain the blue-green algae which tend to attract thousands of flamingoes seasonally and turn the shores pink. Bushy grasslands surround the lake and visitors can spot a variety of animals here including the buffalo, zebra, impala, greater kudu, leopard, gazelle, caracals, klipspringers and dik dik.
