Hiking

When should you hike a trail? Some hikes lead to fascinating forests, some have tremendous views and others are rich in variety. Share your favorite trails with other hikers and nature lovers.

Kenya is on equatorial east Africa and yet you will be surprised at the weather. September is mildly winter in Lake Naivasha and the sun feels good during daytime while you will need a light wind jacket for the evening.

Great experience includes Hippos in Lake Naivasha, the canyon at Hell's Gate National Park and Elsamere - the house where Elsa the lioness grew up with Gorge and Joy Adamson from Born-free.

Navaisha town is very small, no one accepts anything other than US Dollars or Kenyan Schillings - not even the banks. So always carry enough cash with you.

It is a quiet town so don't expect too much entertainment. There are a couple of nightclubs though.

Hell's Gate National Park lies near the bottom of Mount Longonot, an active volcano. Nowadays a geothermal power plant is harnessing the steam from the volcano , so there are no chances for eruption either.

The canyon is however dangerous because of sudden rains. If there is any rain, be sure take the emergency path out of the canyon as soon as you can. There are no big predators in the National Park but keep away from buffaloes.

We visited this desert in the month of april. Overall you could say the best time to visit are our wintermonths november to april. The place is considered the hottest place on earth, measured by Nasa. They registered 70 degrees celcius in our summer!

Usually the best time to visit Scotland is from mid April till the end of May but you can be lucky and experience good weather all year round. April is great with the patches of snow, brown grass and blue sky contrast whereas in August you can experience nice green/pink colors. Can be crowded during weekends with good weather but it is still memorable experience.

GB United Kingdom

Open from May 15 to November 15 from dusk til dawn. Best time to visit is either spring or fall during the week. You will have the place to your self! If you go through out the summer (or any weekend) head up early morning, it starts to get busier around noon.

This hike through the gorge can be done at low water level only. After heavy rainfall, the Apsley River is flooded. Check the weather forecast first. Don't hike through the gorge if there is much rain forecasted. Even roads can get flooded. One day after our hike in November 16 we experienced flooded roads, closed trails, and landslides. A couple of trails got destroyed.

The Apsley River waterhole is popular for swimming in the summer. We saw several people having a look to the waterhole, but none of them hiked the trail through the gorge. It’s still a hidden gem compared to Freycinet.
