Hells Gate and Naivasha Lake
Today we say goodbye to Nairobi, make sure you fill up at breakfast, because we’re a drive away from Hells Gate National Park. Once we arrive, we will start our cycling trip through the wildlife, it will introduce you to more rock types than you knew existed. Not to mention a zebra or two! On our way, we will stop at one of the rocky towers for a rock-climbing session! Later, If time and dry weather are on our side, we will then head to the beautiful Gorge for a one-hour hike. After the hike, we will say hello to the tranquil Lake Naivasha where we will be spending the night.
After breakfast, we embark on a boat ride in Naivasha lake checking out the hippos and the giraffes, wilder beasts and many types of birds on crescent island. Although it’s impossible to get enough of Naivasha, it’s time to continue the journey and head out to Lake Nakuru. Lake Nakuru National Park ecosystem provides for about 56 different species of mammals and a variety of terrestrial birds numbering nearly 450 species and is an important sanctuary for Rhino. As soon as you arrive and after checking into your lodge, you start your game drive adventure.
Lake Nakuru - Maasai Mara
After a very early breakfast, It’s time to continue the journey and head out to Maasai Mara. Upon arrival you will check in your accommodation and get into the Land Cruiser jeeps for your first Mara Game Drive journey. We will start our journey to witness this mass movement of wild animals through the wilderness and an unparalleled sensation. Nature will welcome you with open arms, and invites you into its innermost circle while chasing the sight of the wildebeest, Thompson's gazelle, Zebras, elephants, giraffes and the rest of the Big Fives. If you didn’t get the chance to see all of the “big five” yesterday, today might be your lucky day. Morning and afternoon will be dedicated to drives through the Mara, so keep your eyes and mind wide open for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Adventure Leader Description
The Adventure Leader's mission is to make sure you have a smooth experience and to help you have the best experience possible. They will offer recommendations for things to do and see, great local eating venues and help the group interact and get to know each others (most of the time this actually happens on its own). While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge is needed.
Average: 20 pax
Food is an essential part of traveling. Traveling with Gazef we try as much as we can to help you experience the different kinds of food available in each destination. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this at all times though. We usually leave out some of the meals excluded from the itinerary to give you the flexibility to choose what to eat based on your personal preference. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility. Your Adventure Leader will be able to suggest good restaurants during your trip. Vegetarians will be able to find a range of different foods, although in some areas the choice maybe limited.
Our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a mandatory single supplement unless requested. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip.
What to Pack
What you need to bring depends on the trip you have chosen and the countries or regions you are planning to visit. A Packing List will be sent to you as soon as you book the trip. We suggest that you pack as lightly as possible as your are expected to carry your own luggage. Suitcases are not recommended–most travellers carry a backpack or rolling bag of small to medium size (no XXL ones please!). You will also need a day pack/bag to carry water, cameras and other belongings.
Tipping is an expected, though not compulsory, component of your tour program. The gesture serves as an expression of appreciation for exceptional service, and amounts given are up to your discretion.
Tipping is one of the most direct ways that you can have a positive economic impact within the African community. Although it may not be customary for you, it is an important source of income for those in the tourism industry. Giving a tip should be a seen as a formal 'thank you', and the action should in no way be awkward.
The power supply in Kenya is nominally 240VAC, 50hz. Variable voltage, spikes and sporadic, unexpected, unscheduled power cuts of varying duration can be expected.
It is required to take a Yellow Fever vaccine before entering the country.
In Africa the dress standard is more conservative than it is in other places. In predominately Muslim countries we ask that you dress respectfully and avoid very short shorts/skirts and singlets/tanktops when visiting temples or mosques or other holy sites.
