Great day trip
Oct 2021
We loooooooved this day trip. We got so lucky with Dennis as our tour guide and driver, such a relaxed ride and interesting conversations on our way to the national park. Once there, Charles took over from Dennis to give us a tour on the bike, which was an amazing experience. We got to see zebras, gazelles, buffalos and many more whilst cycling around the park. Lunch and boat ride were the perfect relaxing ending to the day. Would highly recommend this trip with Perfect Wilderness Tours and Safaris.

Oct 2021 • Couples
My husband and I absolutely loved this tour! We were picked up on time by our amazing guide Paul, who answered all our questions we had, super friendly and knowledgeable and fun to be with. He took us first to the Great Rift Valley viewpoint, where there was also a gift shop we could do some shopping. The 20km bike ride around Hells Gate with also local specialist Gadafi, was great! We saw giraffes, zebras, warthogs, impalas, and all while riding a bike in their home was just a magical once in a lifetime experience. Defs recommend wearing sunscreen, made the mistake of only wearing insect repellent. After this we drove to Lake Navaisha and had our lunch stop. The buffet was very good, all soups in Kenya are ridiculously good! Our boat tour in the Lake was a must, we saw a family of hippos out of the water, various birds and fed an eagle. All in all a fun unforgettable experience, thank you so much!

Hello Hillary, Thank you for taking time to write us this wonderful review and recommending this tour to our TripAdvisor readers. We are delighted to read that you had an amazing tour with us and Black Santa did and excellent work. There are dozens of attractions in Kenya but none can match the experience you get at Hell's Gate National Park and Lake Naivasha. The park lends you the opportunity of being close to the animals as you ride the bikes and go on a boat ride. We would like to have you again in future as we explore other destinations. Thank you once again.

Incredible!
I have done a few national parks in vehicles but it doesn't come close to being out in the open on bikes with the air hitting your face and feeling a part of the environment. Tour was smooth from pickup to drop off. The boat ride on Lake naivasha was the perfect way to end the tour. Saw more hippos than I have ever seen at a go.

Unforgettable
Jul 2021 • Solo
This was my absolute favorite activity during my time in Kenya. If you love the outdoors then this is the tour for you! First, my driver Sammie was great! The drive from Nairobi to Hell’s Gate takes about an hour and a half, and Sammie and I made great conversation the entire time. I always felt safe and comfortable. Upon reaching Hell’s Gate, my tour guide Gadafi arrived with a bike for both myself and him and we were off! Words can’t really explain how beautiful this park is. The photos don’t even come close to doing it justice. The views of the rock formations were mind blowing, and we saw so many different wild animals on the way. You follow a set dirt path, and some of these animals were grazing very close to the road. Absolutely amazing. You bike a total of about 10 miles so be ready for a workout! Gadafi was great to have a tour guide as he was patient, and so knowledgeable about the the park and the different wildlife that resides in it. I was so tired by the end, but couldn’t sleep on the way back because I was so still so hyped from the bike ride. 10/10 would recommend both Sammie as a driver and Gadafi as a guide. You won’t regret this experience at all.

Amazing experience, great workout
Jun 2021 • Solo
This is a great experience if you like scenery and fitness. Seeing the animals like zebras and giraffes crossing and frolicking while taking in the environment makes it worthwhile. Simba is a great tour guide and very patient. I was tiring on the way back but he was very patient with me.

My recommendations are to take at least a big bottle of water and definitely sunscreen.

Also I recommend in terms of a fitness level you should at least be a 6, on a scale from 1-10. This is definitely not a easy bike ride: very bumpy and hilly. You don't want to be holding every one up. Oh, and it something at least an hour before you get there :)

Absolutely stunning
Feb 2021
This was a perfect day out. Everything ran smoothly. Dennis is a superstar, he arrived early (at 06h30!!) so we were good to go at 7am. The trip there and back was very comfortable, and Dennis drove very safely - which I appreciated. I learnt so much more than just about the landscape and wildlife. Dennis and I chatted almost non-stop about life in Kenya, global politics, entrepreneurship and the meaning of life! :)

Cycling through the park was fantastic! It's obviously fairly warm but that's part of the experience. The bikes weren't new but given the terrain wasn't bad (not an extreme off-road adventure) they were perfect for the job.

Our time on the lake was also incredible - we saw hippos, pelicans, fish eagles and even giraffe on the island. It was really fantastic.

I'd highly recommend this, it's the perfect break from Nairobi if you have just one spare day.

Also just to add that communication with Everline from Perfect Wilderness Tours was super too.
