DAY 3: Amboseli – Lake Naivasha National Park

Breakfast and then check out embarking on the 5-6 hours to Lake Naivasha, a freshwater Rift Valley lake famed for its bird life particularly fish eagles, love-birds and pelicans. There are also many hippos and we take an evening boat trip to see some of them. Alternatively, the boat ride can be done on Lake Oloiden in the southern part of Lake Naivasha. Unlike Lake Naivasha whose waters are fresh, Lake Oloiden is salty and home to several families of Hippos and both the lesser and the greater flamingos are in plenty here. A boat trip in this lake offers a good opportunity to see some of the numerous water birds and other creatures that thrive in this salty water habitat. Lake Oloiden was formerly part of Lake Naivasha but it is now separated from its south west shore by a stretch of an elevated land and the two lakes are about 200 metres apart. B-L-D

Found here as well are plenty of other interesting wildlife and birds such as the white rhino, leopard, lion, waterbuck, buffalo, impala, warthog, pelicans and a plethora of other birds.

DAY 6: Masai Mara- Game drives

This whole sixth classic Kenya safari day is devoted to game drives in the reserve, with time to explore more of Maasai Mara’s scenery and to catch a glimpse the “The 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. The annual migration of millions of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles between July to September is a spectacle not to be missed by any visitor to the Mara. The wildebeest, who travel in herds for more than 900 kilometres crossing from the Serengeti plains north to the Maasai Mara, encounter their final obstacle at the Mara River. The Masai Mara is drained majorly by the famous River Mara, and the Mara River crossing is one of the most astonishing and absorbing spectacles, especially with the hungry crocodiles ready to pounce. After a full day of taking in nature’s sights, we return to the camp in the mid-afternoon B-L-D
