East Cape Tours invites you to join this thrilling safari which will take you to Nairobi, Lake Naivasha, and Masai Mara Game Reserve. After arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), you will start your safari with a stay at the beautiful Eka Hotel before going to the central part of the country and spend your time at game reserves like Masai Mara Game Reserve. The safari tour, which will end in Masai Mara, will surely leave you lasting memories.
You will stay at Eka Hotel, Naivasha Sopa Lodge, and Masai Mara Sopa Lodge.
Eka Hotel is ideally located along Mombasa Road in Nairobi the capital city of Kenya. It is situated minutes away from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, five kilometers from Wilson Airport (WIL) and five kilometers from the bustling central business district. The hotel rooms offer the very best in comfort, convenience, and efficiency.
Each air-conditioned room is equipped with a flat-screen TV with satellite connection, plug-and-play panels, direct-dial international telephone, complimentary high-speed internet access, mini bar, electronic personal safety deposit box, complimentary tea and coffee-making facilities, and hair dryers that are available upon request.
Set in one hundred and fifty acres of grassland studded with Acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to the resident giraffe, waterbuck, and both Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but it is also a night stop for the hippos when they leave the lake every night to come and trim the grass on the expansive lawns. With Sopa’s traditional and conscientious care for the environment, the buildings are carefully positioned on the property so not many trees have been cut.
As a result, the resort had to come up with a radically innovative and artistic design for the main public area building which now snakes its way between the trees with long and graceful curves.
Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Masai Mara Sopa Lodge was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs which stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their center.
Facilities of the lodge include adjoining rooms, gift shop, special diets, babysitting, hairdryers, sundowners, balloon safaris, handicraft market, swimming pool, bird watching, honeymoon suite, telephone at reception, board games, laundry, traditional dances, children’s menu, mosquito nets, turndown service, conferences, nature walks, weddings, flying safaris, outdoor dining.
You will be transferred from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to the Eka Hotel where you will spend your first night. After lunch, you are welcome to visit the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage at the Nairobi Game Park headquarters. The elephants are fed from 11:00 to noon. You can also visit other endangered animals like the black rhino and the giraffe center.
You will be transferred from the Eka Hotel to Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge where you will spend your second day and night. Set in one-hundred and fifty acres of grassland studded with Acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to the resident giraffe, waterbuck, and Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but also a night stop for the hippos when they leave the lake every night to come and trim the grass on the expansive lawns.
On the way to the lodge, you will stop at the Great Rift Valley to admire the scenery as they make their way through rural Kenya onto the Rift Valley, an area boasting of quaint little villages which dot the traditional African landscape.
You will be transferred from Lake Naivasha to the Masai Mara Sopa Lodge where you will spend the next two nights. Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Masai Mara Sopa Lodge was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. After enjoying a cup of hot Kenyan tea and coffee, get ready in the morning for an exciting early morning game viewing adventure.
You'll be back in time for breakfast and then have time at leisure. You will be at leisure on mid-morning and you can choose to visit local Masai village at an extra cost.
This trip takes place in Nairobi, Lake Naivasha and Maasai Mara National Reserve in South Africa.
Lake Naivasha is at the highest elevation of the Kenyan Rift valley at 1,884 meters (6,181 feet) in a complex geological combination of volcanic rocks and sedimentary deposits from a larger Pleistocene era lake. Apart from transient streams, the lake is fed by the perennial Malewa and Gilgil rivers. There is no visible outlet, but since the lake water is relatively fresh, it is assumed to have an underground outflow.
Maasai Mara (Masai Mara) is situated in southwest Kenya and is one of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves. Together with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, it forms Africa’s most diverse, incredible, and most spectacular ecosystems and possibly, the world’s top safari big game viewing eco-system. Maasai Mara National Reserve stretches 1,510 square kilometers (580 square miles) and rises 1,500 to 2,170 meters above sea level.
Adding the conservancies, the area is at least twice the size. It hosts over 95 species of mammals and over 570 recorded species of birds. This is the World Cup of Wildlife, and together with the Serengeti National Park, there is no better place to witness the best wildlife viewing.
This is a full board safari. All meals and drinking water are included in the price.
Please book your flight to arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO). Transfer from and to the airport is included. East Cape Tours will pick you up from the airport.
