It is an extension of Lake Naivasha and consists of sandstone cliffs and bare plains. Located about 123 kilometers North East of Nairobi, the mark combines human activities and animal viewing. The park has lovely sceneries, especially the plains and the rocks. However, it is relatively small, but rock climbing, biking, and hiking are the main activities.
It is a small park with less wildlife. Of the Big 5 animals, buffaloes are the only animals seen, although rare. Leopards are also within the vicinity but scarce, especially during the day. However, zebras, Thompson gazelles, olive baboons dik-dik, mountain reedbuck, and eland hartebeest are common. The park also has hyenas and cheetahs, although very rare.
The beauty of the park is the unguided tours. Tourists can go any time of the year for hiking and cycling. However, for wildlife viewing, the best time is between June and October, when the weather is friendly, and the grass in the plains is short. Contrary to other parks, the wet climate starts from early November to the end of May.
The park experiences a hot and wet equatorial climate, characterized by two rainy seasons throughout the year. Temperatures are consistent around the year, with rainy seasons between March and May (long rains) and late October and November (short rains). Short rains have alternating sunny and light showers, which still allow game drives within the park. The dry season comes between June to early October.
