DAY 1: NAIROBI – LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK
Pick up from the airport or from the hotel for meet, greet and safari briefings. You will then be driven to Lake Nakuru National Park. You will have a brief stop at the view point of the Great Rift Valley to see its formation. Pass by lake Naivasha to enjoy a short boat ride. Also walk in the island where you can watch the zebras, giraffes, baboons, species of birds. Across the equator, southwards of Bogoria, lies the Rift Valley’s most famous Lake Nakuru, Known all over the world for its flamingoes, it’s alkaline and is recognized as being one of the Natural Wonders of the World. Arrive in good time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive. The park is now a rhino sanctuary, harboring a population of over 40 black and over 60 white rhinos, but the flamingos, of course, have always been the main attraction. At times there may be almost 2 million flamingos in the residence, forming a stunningly beautiful deep pink band around the edge of the lakeshore. Return back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
DAY 2: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK – MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
You’ll have an early morning drive to Masai Mara National Reserve. It holds on as one of the few places left on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once roamed the plains and forests of Africa. As the northern tip of the vast Serengeti ecosystem, the Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of wildebeest, zebras and attendant predators. You will arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive till sunset returning back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
DAY 3: MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
After breakfast, we have a full-day game drive with packed lunch provided. The reserve is well known for its black-manned lions, as well as its abundant resident wildlife. It’s one of the few places where it’s possible to see the Big Five during a morning game drive. Many of the cheetahs are so tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one’s vehicle and several even climb onto the roof to get a better view of prospective prey. The Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of wildebeest, zebras and attendant predators. For the bird enthusiast, almost 500 species have been recorded: among these 16 species of eagles, many hawks and falcons, 6 species of vultures, 8 species of storks, 4 of bustard (including the kori bustard, the world’s heaviest flying bird), and 9 species of sunbirds. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.
