Naivasha Road trip
This is the first official 2018 #TeamMazda Roadtrip of the year
Meeting Point: Shell Petrol Station Mountain View
Meeting Time: 8:30 am
Leave for Naivasha and pass through the Mai Mahiu route.
1. Visit Longonot National Park
~ Hiking the mountain to the first peak where we are able to view the crater.
~ Photo shoot of the team
~ Any child above 7 years can do this easily, its just climbing a hill, not as tiring as getting to the summit.
NB: We won't be getting to the summit . Experience has it that it is a long, treacherous and physically demanding task which will require a full day's hike.
2. Continue with our journey to Naivasha and check in at Lake View Hotel.
- LV Hotel is a decent, quiet place within Naivasha town close to Buffalo Mall with very affordable pricing for bed & breakfast.
3. After check In and relaxing, we will head over to Lake Naivasha shores to relax the afternoon away and play some sports.
- Group boat rides are available
*End of day one back to Hotel*
After a heavy buffet breakfast??
NB: Don't overeat, may cause problems when riding the bike later. :)
1. The Team heads over to Hell's Gate National Park
- Once at the Park, we will view the place. When heading over to Rangers Post, we shall enjoy company of wildlife such as Buffaloes, Giraffes, Baboons, zebras etc which line up the road to Rangers Post.
Upon arrival at the Rangers Post and the weather conditions are suitable, the team shall proceed to "Devils Bedroom" (optional)
2. After Devils Bedroom, we will head straight to Olkaria Geothermal Spa less than 3KMs away for a warm dip and relaxing.
