Program

Day 1: Nairobi - Aberdare

You will depart from Nairobi at 08:00 to cross the Kenyan highlands through pineapple and coffee plantations. Then, you will pass through the industrial town of Thika and the intensely cultivated farms of the central Kenya. You will arrive in time for lunch at the the lodge with observation lounges for birdwatching and overnight floodlit game viewing over a glade waterhole and salt lick.

Day 2: Aberdare - Lake Elementaita

You will depart from Aberdare to Lake Elementaita with a packed lunch. Here, the waters are often colored sparkling flamingo pink from thousands of attractive birds lining on the shores. You will arive late in the afternoon, have a short rest, and then it will be followed by an evening sundowner by the lake.

Day 3: Lake Nakuru National Park - Maasai Mara National Reserve

You will depart from Lake Elementaita after breakfast and drive south via Narok town to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. You will have a game drive en-route to the luxurious tented camp upon arrival at the reserve. You will arrive in time for lunch. The rest of the afternoon will be at leisure. In the early evening, you will embark on a game drive to get a closer look at the Mara.

Maasai Mara National Reserve has incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek Rivers. Wherever you go in the Mara, you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffes, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, gray jackals, spotted hyenas, topis, impalas, hartebeests, wildebeests. elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos also exist in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but are still reasonably common.

The ultimate action here is, without a doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August where millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.

After lunch, you will enjoy an afternoon game drive to get a closer look at the Mara as well as looking out for the Big Five. Afterward, you will return to the camp for dinner and overnight stay.
