This was a walk worth taking for our group from the USA. We enjoyed walking among the animals, including giraffe, impala, and zebra. The view of the lake from the top of the hill was astounding.

Scenic with friendly animals and hoards of birds on the lake. One needs to be fit enough to walk the steep walkway accross the hillock. Fees of 30$ per person is not worth though, if someone is staying near Naivasha lake, better to skip it,...More

Yes it feels safe. The Hippos are in a specific area. The boat doesn't go too close to the Hippos anyway. It's a lovely quiet ride. I had checked the weather forecast for the day we were planning to go. It was going to be... More

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.
