Description

This safari takes you through three very different game viewing experiences: Aberdares, Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara. 

In the Aberdares, you find icy rivers, spectacular waterfalls and rain forests. Here elephants, buffaloes and other animals visit you at the floodlit waterholes of The Ark. Lake Nakuru's claim to fame is anchored on its flamingos and the over 400 species of birds found here. You then head to Maasai Mara, Kenya’s most famous and finest game sanctuary.
