Day 1: Nairobi - Masai Mara National Reserve expand_more
A drive from Nairobi in the morning takes you to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the northern part of the Serengeti, one of Kenya's most favoured game-viewing areas. The reserve covers 700 square miles of magnificent wilderness. It is the Africa of the imagination; endless reaches of acacia-dotted grasslands studded with hazy hills. Afternoon game drive to see the sunset hoping to see lions in large pride, elephants, buffaloes, zebras and numerous plain animals. Dinner and overnight at Enkorok Mara Camp.
Day 2: Masai Mara expand_more
Full day game viewing coupled with exploring this spectacular park. The Mara is the land of African legend: Lions are abundant throughout the park, as are the elephants, giraffes, and a variety of gazelle species and zebra. Cheetah and leopard are also regularly seen and, less commonly, rhino. The annual wildebeest migration, one of nature's few remaining wildlife spectacles, occurs in the Mara from July to September where the big animals and their predators are to be present in abundance during the time frame of this trip. Several species of bee-eater, the flying rainbow that heads the list of Mara's birds, occur in the reserve. As well as wildlife, the Maasai Mara is also home to many members of the colourful Maasai tribe who may be seen around the borders of the park - Morans (warriors) loping across the plains, young boys herding goats, or elders grouped under a tree discussing matters of the day. A visit to a Maasai boma (homestead) reveals this outstanding culture and customs. All meals and overnight at Enkorok Mara Camp.
Day 3: Masai Mara - Nakuru expand_more
A last game run in the picturesque Maasai Mara in the morning through the Rift Valley drive to Lake Nakuru, a shallow alkaline lake in the Rift Valley, renowned for its spectacular flamingo population as one of the world's greatest ornithological spectacles. Although Lake Nakuru is primarily a bird sanctuary, there are a considerable number of animals to be encountered, such as many large game animals such as zebras, elephants and gazelles, this is one of our best chances of seeing rhinos. Lake Nakuru National Park was the first place in Kenya selected as a rhino reserve. Here is one of the few places where we can see Rothschild's giraffes. Dinner and overnight at Punda Milia Camp.
Day 4: Nakuru - Nairobi expand_more
After breakfast, a morning spent game viewing, watching and photographing birds at Nakuru National Park, leave for Nairobi with lunch en route and a stop for panoramic views of the Great Rift Valley. Arrive Nairobi late in the afternoon after driving through lush Kikuyu farmland. You will be dropped at your hotel. This one of the few places where we can see Rothschild's giraffes.
