Program

Day 1: Nairobi - Maasai Mara

On the first day, you will be picked up at your hotel or residence by Heritage of African Jungles Tours and Travel’s representative for a briefing to Maasai Mara via Narok town then enter the Maasai Mara road and drive across the plains to the camp. Check in at the lodge or camp for lunch.

The meals are buffet enjoyed either in the dining or under the shade of indigenous trees. The culinary affair is indeed one to delight the senses. Have a few minutes relaxing and enjoying the surrounding before you depart for an afternoon game drive in search of the Big Five amongst other wild game. Return to the camp or lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Maasai Mara

After breakfast, you will enjoy a full day game viewing in Maasai Mara where you will spend the whole day in the Maasai Mara National Reserve with both morning and afternoon game drives or alternatively a full day game viewing with picnic lunch. Maasai Mara National Reserve offers wonderful scenery and plenty of game. It is perhaps the only region left in Kenya where you may see animals in the same super-abundance as existed a century ago. Explore this part of the Northern Serengeti Ecosystem where the great wildebeest migration takes place. The plain is literally covered with these animals. Grunts and other animal sounds are heard, and territorial fights are commonplace. The migration, now declared the seventh wonder of the world takes place from the end of July to September. Soak in the abundance of untamed wilderness, fresh and natural scenery, filled with exotic wildlife during your expertly guided game drives enjoyed in open vehicles. For those interested in a more intimate encounter, you can go on a safe and exciting walking safari where you will have a chance to come face to face with nature’s beauty both in flora and fauna.

Day 3: Maasai Mara - Lake Nakuru

After breakfast, you will enjoy a morning game drive in Maasai Mara and later drive to Lake Nakuru National Park to arrive for dinner and overnight stay. Lake Nakuru National Park has a great variety of bird life, which includes the Egyptian goose and a variety of ducks that come from Europe to winter. This park is truly a bird watchers paradise. The game animals include hippo, waterbuck, gazelles, Colobus monkeys, buffalo, leopard, and the Rothschild giraffe. The park is also a sanctuary for the white rhino. This park has an abundance of acacia trees, both yellow barked (fever tree), the umbrella-topped acacia, and the candelabra cactus.

Day 4: Lake Nakuru - Nairobi

This day will start with an early morning game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park to enjoy the sight of pelicans bathing in the freshwater streams which terminate in Lake Nakuru. Since there is no existing drainage, Lake Nakuru is alkaline, the perfect place for flamingos to feed on the blue-green algae. The greater flamingo attains a height of about 4.26 feet and its plumage is almost white with a pale pink, black-tipped beak. It is the lesser flamingo that has the more exotic color, which is about 2.72 feet in height with a rosy plumage and dark red, black-tipped beak. Later, you will be driven back to Nairobi arriving late in the afternoon. Drop off at your pre-booked hotel or transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) for your flight back home.
