Boat ride featured up close experiences with hippos and the amazing African Fish Eagle. The walk on the property gets you up close to giraffes, waterbuck, zebras, wildebeests, and impala.

Sailed round it, checking out the bird life, and hippos. Plenty of animal life on the island, but, of course, quite distant if you are in a boat.

Husband & I thoroughly enjoyed boat ride on lake Naivasha. Up close to hippos, saw many birds including tons of cormorants, 6 soaring and 2 perched fish eagles, and kingfishers in action! Would happily do again. Cost $30 each.

We arrived by road. Yes I would say 2 hours is plenty of time to wander around and I can't answer about the guide as we came with our own guide. Enjoy.
