This was my second trip to Lake Nakuru and Naivasha with GetYourGuide. I decided to do this trip again in June 2021 and was not disappointed. I was picked up from my hotel at 6am by the guide Nathan, who was very punctual. The Game drive started at 10am and lasted 3 hours at Lake Nakuru, where I saw many different animals such as zebras, cape buffalo, white and black rhinos, impalas, baboons, pelicans, many flamingos, warthogs, waterbucks, spoonbills, giraffes, fish eagles and a new hippo in the area. After lunch we went to Lake Naivasha where I took an afternoon boat ride. During the boat ride I saw hippos, fishermen, fish eagles fishing, pelicans, cormorans, kingfishers, egrets, ibis and many animals such as zebras, impalas on Crescent island from the movie Out of Africa. I strongly recommend the this trip and the guide Nathan from Perfect Wilderness Tours and Safari!
