Masai Mara Safari can be combined with tours to other destinations like Amboseli and Lake Nakuru National Parks or Lake Naivasha (Hell’s Gate National Park or Crescent Island Private Sanctuary). Combining Masai Mara Safari with tours to Amboseli and Lake Nake Nakuru highly improves your chances of sighting Africa’s Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Elephants, Rhino and Buffalo).
To add a little spice to your Masai Mara Safari Siku Njema Safaris suggests including a Walking/Cycling Safari in Hell’s Gate National Park which lies south of Lake Naivasha. What makes Hell’s Gate National Park such a unique experience is the fact you can enjoy a walking and a cycling safari. Adding Lake Naivasha tour to your Masai Mara Safari will give you a chance to enjoy a boat ride on the lake and see hippos, birds, and the best views of the mountains beyond the lake - a very good outdoor experience that connects you with nature.
Besides cycling/walking Safari experience, Hells Gate National Park is a suitable place for rock climbing. One of the hotspots for rock climbing in the park is the Fischer's Tower - a prominent volcanic plug standing 25 meters high over the surrounding valley floor. Seasoned and novice rock climbing enthusiasts are welcome to scale the imposing tower.
In addition to cycling/walking Safari and rock climbing, Hell's Gate National Park offers hiking opportunities in the Ol Njorowa Gorge - a 24 km long deep ravine lined with sheer cliffs and dotted with hot water springs feeding a stream that meanders down the floor of the gorge as it cuts its way through the rugged and semi-arid surrounding. The hikes takes about an hour, ending at a high elevation point where you can enjoy the views of the gorge below.
The Masai Mara has a wide variety of properties to choose from, both inside of the National Reserve or out in the surrounding private concessions.
