Flamingo Hill Camp

Flamingo Hill Camp is situated within the famous Lake Nakuru National Park, which lies within the Great Rift Valley of Kenya. Nestled between the “honeymoon hills”, and set in beautifully landscaped grounds with natural foliage and a variety of indigenous African plants and flowers, Flamingo Hill Camp provides superb, tented accommodation. Flamingo Hill Camp is an eco-friendly establishment. Part of the money earned from the camp is used for environmental restoration and endangered species. Cozy, warm and inviting with a personal touch, Flamingo Hill Camp offers the traveler a home away from home.

Ilkeliani Camp

Nestled in a river glade in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the area is a favourite for elephants coming to drink from the Talek River. The camp has been designed to combine the old traditional safari style with a modern and fresh feel. Ilkeliani Camp offers only 17 tents and each commanding views of the plains and the wildlife action throughout the day. It is a permanent camp designed along eco-friendly principles. The ethos is to leave a minimum footprint on nature.

Each well-equipped tents are stylish with en suite bathroom. They are sited under its own cluster of shady indigenous trees and you do feel that you are out in the wilderness. The interiors are spacious and comfortable featuring a front verandah with a daybed and canvas safari chairs. Home cooked meals combined with personal service contribute to an unforgettable safari experience.

Program

Day 1: Nairobi - Lake Nakuru

You will be picked by one of Seremara Safaris’ driver guides at your Nairobi hotel / Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in a customized safari minivan with a pop up roof and head towards Nairobi to Nakuru through the Rift Valley enjoying the fascinating views of the escarpment on your way to Lake Nakuru National Park. You will arrive in time for lunch. Check in, have lunch, and then set out for an afternoon game viewing drive around the park. The lake park is home to one of the most remarkable wild bird population. Dinner and overnight at the camp / lodge.

Day 2: Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara

Wake up to an early morning game viewing and bird watching drive around the park. Return to the camp for breakfast, after which you drive west past Mount Longonot through Narok to the Maasai Mara National Reserve to arrive in time for lunch.

You will settle in your tent and enjoy a lunch while looking into the Maasai Mara National Reserve. At around 16:00, you will meet your guide for your afternoon game drive. As the temperature cools in the late afternoon, the predators of the Mara start preparing for the evening hunt. For the big cats - the lions, the cheetahs, and the leopards - the migration season is a time of abundance. During your afternoon game drive, you will witness how the constant battle for survival makes the migration season a particularly exhilarating time to visit Maasai Mara.

As the sun sets, you will return to camp for dinner followed by stargazing and story-time around the fireplace. When you’re ready, one of the Maasai night guards - known as Askaris - will escort you back to your tent. Dinner and overnight at the camp.

Day 3: Maasai Mara

Awake to the magnificent ‘wake up call’ symphony of Maasai Mara’s astonishing birdlife. Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast before embarking on a full day safari in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Abundant wildlife on the savannah gives fantastic photo opportunities. The incredible backdrop of clear blues and the rolling savannah will captivate you providing you with memories to last a lifetime.

Catch the action at the crossing point and stalk the herds just like the lions and the cheetahs, capturing them with your lens and in your heart. Enjoy an exceptional wilderness migration holiday; there is never a dull moment on the savannah. Return to camp at sundown for dinner followed by relaxation at the campfire as you tell of your experiences on the African wilderness.

Alternately, begin with an early morning wake-up call and a steaming cup of coffee. Typically, the client will get an adrenaline rush with a hot air balloon ride cutting through the cool air of the plains as herds of elephant, buffalo, and zebra scatter in search of food below you. Upon landing, you are treated to a breakfast and your guide will then take you either back to the camp for a well-deserved nap or continue on a game drive. Return for lunch and an afternoon nap. Later go out for an evening game drive returning to camp for a hearty dinner and cold beer. Dinner and overnight at the camp.

Day 4: Maasai Mara

Wake before dawn and set out at sunrise in search of game. In between your morning and afternoon game drive, you will have ample time to relax and enjoy the ambiance at your camp. After lunch, take some time to relax and later depart with your driver / guide for an afternoon game drive in search for the big five. The low afternoon light is perfect for photographing the beautiful rolling plains of the Masai Mara. In the early evening, as you make your way back to camp, you may get lucky and spot a leopard on the prowl. As the sun starts to set, you will return to your camp for dinner and overnight at the camp.

Alternatively, wake up for breakfast before leaving with picnic lunch for a full day game viewing drive to experience the great wildebeest migration across the Mara river before returning to the camp in the evening for dinner and overnight

Day 5: Maasai Mara - Nairobi

Early morning game drive before returning to the camp for breakfast. After breakfast, pack your personal belongings, bid your Maasai host goodbye, and check out to depart by road to Nairobi. Arrive in Nairobi in the early afternoon for your international flight connection or back to your hotel.

Location

This safari takes place in Kenya.

Lake Nakuru National Park

In addition to its 400 species of birds, Lake Nakuru National Park is home to over 50 mammal species and over 500 species of flora. This park is famous for the flocks of greater and lesser flamingos that gather around the lake, sometimes with as many as two million! You can find this great pink mass around the lake for a good part of the year as these iconic birds stay mostly within the Rift Valley migrating from lake to lake. Because Lake Nakuru National Park was fenced to protect endangered rhinos and gi rhinos and giraffes, it can’t support African elephants, so you won’t find any here!

You are guaranteed to see white rhinos, African buffalos, Rothschild giraffes, zebras, impalas, olive baboons, vervet monkeys, waterbucks, and a variety of water birds (yellow-billed pelicans, marabou storks, hammerkops, fish eagles, etc.). Common in the park: hyenas, jackals, lesser flamingos, hippopotamus, and pythons. If you are lucky you may see: lions, leopards, black rhinos, wild dogs, colobus monkeys, and cheetahs.

Don’t forget the plants! In Lake Nakuru National Park, you can see a wide variety of beautiful landscapes from grasslands to dense forests and the very rare tarchonanthus bushlands and euphorbia forests.

Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation needs to go no further.

The undeniable highlight of the Maasai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles, and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.
