Will there be life jackets onboard?

Are passengers covered by your insurance?

Yes, passengers are covered by insurance.

Am I allowed to smoke onboard the boat?

No, we do not allow smoking on the boat for safety reasons.

What is the environmental impact of the boat safaris?

We’re always trying to ensure we leave the lightest footprint possible. We change fuel filters and regularly service our boats to ensure they run efficiently and cleanly. We also operate an electronic fuel injection four-stroke outboard because they are a lot more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly. We never fuel the boats on the water and do prior checks to ensure no spills or fractures in the tank.

We also try to cut the idle whenever possible so that you can enjoy the sounds of nature instead. Reducing our speed when approaching the jetty further avoids wake damage to the shoreline.

All waste materials and garbage are removed and disposed of responsibly. We also continuously train our crew and personnel about best practices in environmental matters.

Cliff Boat Safaris
"Clearly the highlight of this trip was the boat safari which was the best I have ever experienced in any country. We were served champagne, fresh breads and a host of other goodies as the tour guides (an experienced fisherman and a climate scientist and ecologist with an M.Sc. in her field) took us across the lake and explained every facet of the trip and the unique ecosystem and habitat. This was by far the best lake cruise I have been on and was educational, informative as well as fun for the kids."
"Nakuru is famous for birds and The Cliff's Mary is an expert on birds. She walked us through the property and showed us many species. She helped me track down a bird I'd wanted to see. We took a boat tour and Mary and Captain Suleiman was so knowledgeable and so eager to show us the best that Nakuru had to offer. We were bowled over. And the food on the tour... oh! Wow! It was a feast in the middle of the lake."
