Upon arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met by our representative and transferred to the Lake Nakuru National Park, a protected game sanctuary for endangered species of the Black/ White rhino among other usual game such as the leopard and Lion. We will have lunch at the camp followed by an afternoon game drive until sunset. Dinner and overnight at flamingo Hill Camp (full board).
Enjoy an early morning game drive before coming back for breakfast followed by departure for the world reknowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve which means “spotted plains” in the Maa language. This is home to the greatest concentration of large mammals and is widely recognized as Africa’s ultimate wildlife reserve. This reserve is neighbouring Tanzania’s Serengeti which makes this place famous for staging the annual migration of wildebeest.
Check-in upon arrival followed by lunch and depart for an evening game viewing drive. Prepare yourself to take in the spectacular sceneries of rolling savannahs dotted with patchy shrubs and bush thickets. We drive through never-ending plains, and witness the abundant variety of wildlife that you have only seen before on televisions!
During your stay, you have the opportunity to explore this great reserve in depth. You may see elephant, giraffe, prides of lion, and thousands of impala, topi, grants and Thomson’s gazelle. Birds are prolific including immigrants, 450 bird species have been recorded among them 57 birds of prey. The Mara is the scene of annual migration of millions of wildebeest up from the Serengeti plains in search of water and grasses. While in Mara, you will have the option to float above the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem on board a hot air balloon followed by a gourmet champagne breakfast (at an extra cost).
We will have an early morning game drive and return afterwards for breakfast. We check out shortly and make our way to Lake Naivasha which is the first of the Rift Valley Lakes and is set at the foot of Mount Longonot, on the north side. It was on Lake Naivasha that East Africa’s first air-passengers used to land in the flying boats of Imperial Airways. After lunch at the lodge, enjoy a walk by the shores of the lake, and take a boat ride to see a varitety of birds hovering above.
After breakfast, drive out across and over the rift escarpment to Nairobi. Transfer directly to JKIA for your outbound flight.
