Rakesh helped organize short bike rides, including transporting high-quality bikes and finding guides. He was super responsive and made sure we had a great time.
We did day trips... read more for Hell's Gate and then a shorter bike ride in Tigoni Tea Farms. The guides helped personalize our ride to our fitness level / desired length. Would highly recommend!

Two friends and I were guided by Rakesh on a two day bike ride from Nairobi to Lake Naivasha, via Mount Suswa and Hells Gate. The trip was incredible and... read more Rakesh was a fantastic leader / guide / cycling buddy. He took us on a route that included some fantastic spells of downhill road riding, through some beautiful and fun forest trails, and up some very rewarding hill climbs... all against constantly stunning scenery. The trip was a great way to see some lovely parts of Kenya and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun adventure. Rakesh is able to tailor your itinerary according to your time restraints and fitness levels. We will definitely be organising another trip with him in the near future... a fantastic experience all round.

We had a great ride with Rakesh. The scenery is beautiful and the ride was challenging as I had requested. Definitely going to do some more rides

I was looking for a couple full day bike adventures while traveling to Kenya along with my wife for her work trip. I'm an avid mountain biker in Colorado, so... read more I had big rides in mind, and I reached out to Baiskeli Adventures to help me make it happen. Since we we'd be staying at a lodge on Lake Naivasha, Rakesh wrote me to suggest a ride through Hell's Gate National Park and beyond ... way beyond. He sent me a link to the proposed route: about 45 miles and 4,500 feet of elevation gain. That was exactly the kind of thing I had in mind, so I knew I made the right choice reaching out to Baiskeli Adventures.
I'd never been to Kenya before and really wasn't sure what Naivasha was going to be like, so I was glad that Rakesh said it was no trouble to pick me up from the lodge where I was staying. He let me know that Ben would be my guide, and Ben and I made arrangements for the first day's ride over Whatsapp. He picked me up at 8:30 a.m. just as we'd agreed, and we made our way over to the entrance to Hell's Gate. We were met there with two bikes and helmets (which I later found out were rented from the highly recommended Fisherman's Camp). I made a couple quick adjustments for fit, but everything appeared to be in working order. After paying the entrance fee, Ben and I were off. There's so much I could say about this ride, but it wouldn't do it any justice. I'll just say that if you like big gravel rides, you'll love this one.
After a good night's rest, Ben picked me up the next morning and we rode all the way around Lake Naivasha, about 47 miles this time, but much flatter, and maybe a 50/50 mix of paved and unpaved roads. This was a nice change of pace and scenery from the day before, and I was really glad to have the opportunity to see so much of the area by bike.
Ben was a great guide and I was glad to have his company on these rides. If I ever have the opportunity to visit Kenya again, I'll definitely choose Baiskeli Adventures.

With some friends we wanted to remember, in Africa, our adventure of a liftime, which was precisely the crossing of Africa, by bicycle, in 2010. From Cairo to Cape town.... read more But, how and with whom? We thought about Kenya, and discovered Rakesh and Baiskeli Adventures. The result, surprisingly, has been that we experienced the second adventure of a lifetime! Rakesh designed an 8-day route for us, from Nairobi to the Indian Ocean, practically all on dirt roads and single tracks, through a different nature every day, and even different several times in a single day. Enchanting landscapes that often reminded us of other places in Africa that we had discovered together 12 years before. To Rakesh we can only say thank you, a journey beyond our most demanding expectations. We were accompanied by the driver and excellent cook Ken, and Rakesh himself for half a day, and a pleasant evening. Baiskeli Adentures, we met, and we will meet again, I'm sure.
