Lake Nakuru National Park – The Bird Watchers’ Paradise
On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for bird watching, hiking,picnic and game drives.
Masai Mara National Park
Maasai Mara (Masai Mara) is situated in south-west Kenya and is one of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves. Together with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania it forms Africa’s most diverse, incredible and most spectacular eco-systems and possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing ecosystem.
Masai Mara National Park hosts over 95 species of mammals and over 570 recorded species of birds. This is the World Cup of Wildlife, and together with the Serengeti National Park there is no better place to witness the best wildlife viewing in the world!
With the wildebeest migration in July – October, this is the best time to see this incredible movement of animals. Although it is not guaranteed that the wildebeest get to Masai Mara, it has yet to let us down. Also, December to February are great times as it is dryer and good for the Big Cats.

DAY 1: Nairobi to Lake Nakuru National Park
In the early hours of the first day, we depart Nairobi for Lake Nakuru National Park, where we will spend the day game watching. In this small but scenic park, expect to see abundant wildlife, including flamingos and rhinos, lions, leopards, hyenas and an array of antelopes such as impalas, gazelles, waterbucks and dik diks (small-sized antelopes found almost exclusively in East Africa). This safari park also hosts a sizeable population of the Rothschild’s giraffe, a rare species indigenous to Western Kenya. The major highlight is the amazing population of flamingos, attracted by the abundant supply of green algae in the soda-rich Lake Nakuru L-D
Dinner and Overnight at Maili Saba Camp L,D
DAY 2: Lake Nakuru – Masai Mara National Park
After breakfast, we depart early for a six-hour drive through the Great Rift Valley’s floors and western escarpments, created over the centuries due to the natural shifting of the earth’s tectonic plates. We will head to the Masai Mara National Reserve and will arrive in time for lunch. After an early afternoon at leisure, we proceed to the reserve for our much-anticipated date with the gem of African wilderness. A game-viewing drive through the rolling hills and the open plains of the eastern end of the park will allow us the opportunity to capture the natural sights of your most favoured game animals in their natural habitats . Dinner and Overnight at Ol Moran Tented Camp B-L-D
DAY 3: Masai Mara – Game drives
This day is exclusively devoted to game drives in the reserve, with time to explore more of Masai Mara’s scenery and to catch a glimpse the the Africa “Big Five” animals of Kenya: lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and rhino. In addition to these, Maasai Mara teems with other fascinating wild animal species: giraffes, zebras, hippos, baboons, wildebeests, warthogs, gazelles, crocodiles and numerous bird species.
Each year, the Masai Mara plays host to one of the most spectacular dramas anywhere in the wild: Between July to October, more than one million wildebeests and zebras make the northward journey from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara. The journey, part of their annual migrations, is not without dangers and hazards from predators, namely, crossing the crocodile-infested waters of the Mara River.
An optional excursion during out trip is to spend an evening visiting a Masai Village, engaging with the community members and learning dances and the culture of the Maasai community. Dinner and Overnight at Ol Moran Tented Camp B-L-D
DAY 4: Masai Mara – Nairobi
We start our final day off early with a 6:00 am morning game drive for an opportunity to spy the activity of the nocturnal and semi-nocturnal animals that are rarely active during the heat of the day. We return to our camp for breakfast and preparation for return to Nairobi, which we will reach by late afternoon B-L
