#36 Lake Naivasha, Hell's Gate, Longonot & Eburru Mountain

The part of the Great Rift Valley that stretches northwest of Nairobi has righteously become the most popular weekend destination for Nairobians, since Lake Naivasha is one of the two fresh water lakes in the Kenyan Rift Valley that sustains an incredible diversity of birdlife and a healthy hippo population, but at the same time is the center of the country's blossoming flower business. Other attractions are close by, like Hell's Gate National Park, a volcanic landscape with basalt cliffs and a superb gorge that invite trekkers and climbers alike and offers you wildlife encounters on foot. The panorama is dominated by Mount Longonot and Mount Eburru, both extinct volcanos offering breathtaking views over the central part of Rift Valley. Take a bird’s perspective and marvel the beauty of the Lake Naivasha Treasure!
