Location

This safari will take place in Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru and Hell's Gate National Park, and Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha means "rough water" as sudden storms occur sometimes in the freshwater lake which is slightly located northwest of Nairobi in Central Kenya. It measures 139 square kilometers and is surrounded by privately owned sanctuaries with beautiful grounds which run down to the lakeshore.

It is also a grazing ground for hippos every night. It supports 400 bird species. The beautiful Lakes Oloiden and Lake Sonachi neighboring it are home to the Naivasha flamingos.

Joy Adamson, Joan Root, and numerous other famous conservationists all have had homes on the shores of Lake Naivasha. The Djinn Palace, which gained notoriety during the Happy Valley Days, can be seen from the lake and now forms part of Oserian which is a rose farm and a stunning game sanctuary.

Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru is one of the best places in Central Kenya to see the elusive leopard and the endangered rhino. The lake's abundance of algae attracts the vast quantity of flamingos that famously line the shore. It is also easy to reach from Nairobi.

Hell's Gate National Park

The park was named for the pair of massive red-tinged cliffs framing a geothermically active interior of steam vents and bubbling springs. It is home to a profusion of plains game and birdlife. Walking is permitted, making it ideal for hiking, biking, and rock climbing.

Boat trips on the lake are widely available and is a great way to spend an afternoon or morning. Sunsets are always stunning with the haunting call of a fish eagle high over the lake, bringing the day to a perfect end.

Maasai Mara National Reserve

Maasai Mara is in Southern Kenya and measures a 1,500-square kilometer mass of rolling plains bordering Tanzania with a surrounding dispersal area of almost the same. Game is abundant in every area of the Mara. Its habitat is rolling, open grassland divided by riverine woodland associated with several small streams and rivers as well as the great Mara River.

In the Mara, it is warm during the day, cold in the mornings and evenings, and it rains in April, May, and November. It offers a wide variety of wildlife of over 450 species of animals. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, buffalos, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, leopards, many kinds of antelopes, and elephants.

The Mara is home to the annual wildebeest migration, rightly the Eighth Wonder of the World, and a journey of 1,800 miles for the wildebeests. During the outstanding migration, approximately two million wildebeest, zebra, and topi make their way to the lush grasslands of the Massai Mara, Tanzania’s Serengeti. The sweeping grass hills further champion the endowed uniqueness.

The journey is perilous as large numbers of predators including the leopard, lion, cheetah, wild dog, and hyena all lie in wait to snatch up their unsuspecting prey whilst crocodiles lie in wait each year for that first wildebeest to cross the Grumeti and Mara Rivers. Viewing the sheer magnitude of animals among the wildebeest migration, as well as the drama and action of the extraordinary natural spectacle, is nothing short of miraculous.

The vast open grass plains, so typically Kenyan, the rivers, the escarpment, and the valleys produce one of the most undoubtedly beautiful places on earth. The Maasai Mara National Reserve ecosystem hosts the last great concentration of mixed species, plains, wildlife in Africa, and game viewing. As a result, it is unparalleled to anything else.

Kenya

Kenya takes pride in its strategic location on the global equator and the fact that it is positioned in the East Coast of Africa. The beauty of the African land is just unique, to say the least. It covers an area of about 586,600 square kilometers. Thus, it is a middle-sized country in the continent.

Its diverse heritage is no doubt rich in most aspects with the glaciated mountains with snow-capped peak, the Rift Valley with its scarps and volcanoes, ancient granitic hills, flat desert landscapes, and coral reefs and islets. As reiterated in the country’s national anthem, there is plenty within its borders such as savannas rich with big game, timeless cultures unchanged by the modern world, pristine beaches, coral reefs, and equatorial forests.

It has mighty snow-capped mountains, searing deserts, cool highland retreats, and endless opportunities for adventure, discovery, and relaxation more than you would ever expect.

The country is bordered by Somalia and the Indian Ocean to the east, Ethiopia to the north, Sudan to the northwest, Uganda to the west, and Tanzania to the south. The coastline, about 550 kilometers long, faces the Indian Ocean.
