Later in the afternoon take a boat ride on the lake and get a chance to identify some of the birds e.g. Pelican, herons and cormorants which are well represented. A boat ride also offers the chance to see hippos up close. More activities can be arranged and are payable direct. These include; a visit to Crescent Island, a private reserve where you can walk and find a large variety of wildlife such as gazelle, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe and dikdik. or a visit to Hell's Gate, it is a 13 km long gorge with a rugged road between towering red rocks. Hell's gate is a geo-thermal hot spot. It is also home to one of Kenya's rarest birds of prey, the Lammergeyer. Dinner and overnight at NAIVASHA SOPA LODGE (full board).

Day 3: Lake Naivasha / Lake Bogoria

This morning drive onwards to Lake Bogoria, a saline water shallow located at the northern region of the Kenyan Rift. Check-in followed by lunch and depart later to Lake Bogoria Reserve, home to the Lake. The lake displays a superb scenery of bluish hills populated with dry bush, grasslands and riverine forests, framing the calm water shallow pinned with flamingos. Beyond the eastern shore, the soil rises abruptly to 600 m in the Laikipia Escarpment. At the opposite edge, the earth forms strangely coloured swampy crusts, which break up in deep gaps spitting stinky sulphur waters and steam jets. The close-up geysers, the pink brushstrokes of the flamingoes on the lake, and farther away the dramatic backdrop of the Laikipia Escarpment, everything in Bogoria conveys an unrivaled scenery. Dinner and overnight at LAKE BOGORIA RESORT & SPA (full board).

Day 4: Lake Baringo

After breakfast depart to Lake Baringo, a fresh water lake and a bird lovers paradise with over 600 species found in the area and hosts crocodiles and hippos as well.
