Day 1

Nairobi / Lake Nakuru

Nairobi / Lake Nakuru

On arrival at JKIA in Nairobi, you will be met by our representative. Depending on your arrival time, we will either take you to your hotel in the city or depart for a drive into the Great Rift Valley and on to Lake Nakuru National Park in the late morning.

Lake Nakuru is one of the several Rift Valley lakes and its ecosystem supports a wide ecological diversity with flamingos (greater and lesser) and other waterbirds being the major attractions of the area. The ecosystem provides for about 56 different species of mammals including the white rhino, buffalo, and a variety of terrestrial birds numbering nearly 450 species. The park is truly remarkable as it has achieved international fame as an animal sanctuary where both black and white rhinos are being given a new lease on life in this park.

You will check in at Lake Nakuru Lodge and have lunch. Go for a game drive in the evening which will include a walk by the shores of the lake to get up close with the many birds found here.

Day 4

Explore Mara

Explore Mara

This is a day of unlimited game drives - one in the morning before breakfast and the other in the late afternoon. Early mornings and late afternoons are considered the best times to spot animals as they are most active. To get some of the best game viewing of the day, an early start is needed. This is the time that the big cats are most active and can provide some of the most dramatic photography, thanks to the beautiful lighting. If you are fortunate enough, you will catch lions during one of their rare bouts of daytime activities and it’ll be fascinating to watch the social interaction between pride members, especially the playful ways of lion cubs under the watchful eyes of their mothers.

An optional hot-air balloon safari can be arranged at an extra cost. Your guide will then take you to the nearby Maasai village after breakfast where you will get a chance to see the Maasai way of life (optional). Return to the camp for lunch before setting out for an evening game drive.
