Tour Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara, encounter big five on excellent game and bird viewing drives. View great rift valley, see flamingos and interact with the Masai community.
Masai mara is well known to be the most outstanding wildlife sanctuary for its big five and the annual great wildebeest migration, where gentle rolling grassland ensures animals are never out of sight. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well spread rainfall year round.
Lake Nakuru is dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation. Twenty seven percent (27%) of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters. Lake Nakuru was declared a rhino sanctuary in 1983 and also is home to the world famous bird the flamingoes.
Depart for Nakuru, experiencing breathtaking views of the world’s greatest land rift, to arrive in time for lunch. Enjoy an afternoon game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park. The park provides a sanctuary for the rhino. Lake Nakuru has always been considered a ornithological Paradise. The contrast and apparent dislocation between the shallow soda lake with its primeval birds and the animated woods all around it give Lake Nakuru National Park a very distinctive appeal. Dinner and overnight at a lodge over looking the lake.
After breakfast, depart for Mara – the land of vast migrating herds. After lunch, an afternoon game drive to get a closer look at the Mara. On the plains, look for the predators hidden among the acacia trees: Black-maned Lion, Cheetah and Leopard. Enormous grazing herds are ever present. Returns to an archetypal Mara lodge/tented camp for dinner and overnight stay.
An early morning game drive that promises to be thrilling. The sheer enormity of the Mara and the abundance of exotic wildlife offer endless opportunities for excitement. Return to the Lodge/tented camp for breakfast and then depart for Nairobi.
