Program

Day 1: Nairobi to Lake Nakuru (two and a half hours drive)

You will depart from Nairobi in the morning and be driven to the floor of the Rift Valley with a brief stop at the Rift Valley viewpoint to take the most eye-catching view of the escarpment. You will then proceed to Lake Nakuru National Park which is known as an important wildlife sanctuary for some of Africa's endangered species, especially black and white rhinos as well as Rothschild's giraffes.

The game reserve is also home to lions, waterbuck, buffalo, and baboons which you will keep an eye out for on the game drive. Lunch will be at the hotel followed by an afternoon game drive. Besides the flamingos that the lake is famous for, there are approximately 400 other species of birds visiting the lake. Also, many species of game can be found in the park including the introduced Rothschild’s giraffe, black and white rhino, waterbuck, reedbuck, lion, buffalo, leopard, baboon, and many species of plains game. Dinner and overnight will be at the hotel.

Day 2: Lake Nakuru to Lake Naivasha (one hour drive)

You will depart from Lake Nakuru, one of the gems in the necklace of the Rift Valley Lakes often referred as the pink lake for its great masses of pink flamingos for Lake Naivasha which is a birdwatcher's dream come true. Some areas of Lake Naivasha's shore have recorded over 400 bird species. The acacia forests teem with hoopoe, woodpeckers, rollers, shrikes, hawks, cuckoos, and much more. You will be arriving at the hotel in time for lunch. Later, you may enjoy an afternoon boat ride at Lake Naivasha that will take you to Crescent Island for a walking safari. This is one of the few places in the world where one can wander on foot amidst wild animals as there are no predators. You will return to the camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Lake Naivasha to Maasai Mara (four hours drive)

You will depart from Lake Naivasha after breakfast and be driven further along the floor of the Rift Valley to Maasai Mara which is the home to the largest population of lions, cheetah, hyena, and jackals in Kenya.

Dinner and overnight will be at the camp.

Day 4: Maasai Mara

You will spend the day in the Maasai Mara which is Kenya's most celebrated game park. This park offers the possibility of seeing the Big Five and many other species of game.

The game drives are flexible with the option of going out with picnic lunch boxes to spend the entire day in the park or you can choose to have early morning and late afternoon game drives. At an extra cost, you may visit a local Maasai village to see their nomadic lifestyle. The Maasai are famous for their bravery as they have co-existed with the animals over the years. All meals and overnight will be at the camp.

The Mara reserve is 1,510 kilometers square of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain the Maasai Mara's appeal with typical open savannah and a mass of amazing wildlife.

Wherever you go in the vast Maasai Mara, you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Maasai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, and wildebeest.
