4 Days Explore Lake Nakuru  & Masai Mara National Parks

This 4 days Lake Nakuru National Park and Masai Mara National Park Tour is one of the top Kenya wildlife safari that will drive you off the beaten truck to the amazing pink pelican shores of Lake Nakuru and the breath taking Masai Mara Wild.

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 eco-system.

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 Maasai 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.

 

Tour Itinerary

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

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.

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.

Masai Mara safari Kenya Wildlife Tour

Each year, the Maasai 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 Maasai Village, engaging with the community members and learning dances and the culture of the Maasai community. B-L-D
