Lake Naivasha, a large shallow freshwater lake dotted with papyrus trees, is a world class birding destination about a one hours drive from Nairobi. The fish eagle is a common site along with hundreds of other species of bird life. The lake is adjacent to Hells Gate National Park, which is named so due to the massive red tinged cliffs surrounding a geothermal interior with bubbling hot springs. The lake draws a great range of game from giraffe, hartebeest, zebra, gazelle, impala, hippo and Colobus monkeys. Boat trips on the lake are available, walking tours, biking, hiking and rock climbing can also be done in the park
