Pick up from the airport on arrival and transfer to a city hotel for overnight stay.
We depart Nairobi heading north as we drive down the Great Rift valley enjoying the spectacular views. We drive past Mt. Logonot, lake Naivasha, lake Elementaita and lake Nakuru with lunch en route to arrive in Lake Baringo in the afternoon. There we have a boat trip to watch hippos, water birds and crocodiles.
After breakfast, we drive back a bit south to lake Bogoria game reserve and we get dropped off at the park gate. Accompanied by game ranger, we start our walk for 3-4 hours towards the Southend of lake Bogoria. At the hot springs, we find our camp setup.
We start our day by visiting the Flamingos and the hot springs. The springs can shoot up as high as 15 -18ft in the morning. CAUTION MUST BE TAKEN WHILE WALKING NEAR THE HOT SPRINGS AS THESE ARE SUPER HOT. Afterwards, we proceed south to the end while we turn to east side of the lake.
Early morning before breakfast, we climb the eastern lake wall to catch a good view of the lake in the morning. We descend back to the bush camp for breakfast then we drive to Lake Nakuru National park and arrive in time for lunch. We do an afternoon game drive to see animals like rhino, lion, zebra, hyena, giraffe, buffalo, Water buck, Impala baboon troops and many kinds of water birds; pelicans, cormorants and hundreds thousands of flamingos.
Early morning game drive then return to the lodge for breakfast and drive to Lake Naivasha in the afternoon. Lunch at a camp in Naivasha followed by a visit to the adjacent Hells Gate National Park- this park can be explored on foot or by cycling- bicycles are available for hire at an extra cost. Hell’s Gate is located just beyond Lake Naivasha. Famous for its natural hot geysers, eagle and vulture breeding grounds, visitors have the choice of driving, walking, camping, and cycling and rock climbing within the park. Special location to view include Fischer’s Tower, formerly a volcano’s plug, the Central Tower and Njorowa Gorges. Two extinct volcanos: Olkaira and Hobley’s are worth a trip.
Drive to Masai Mara after breakfast. Lunch at Enchoro Camp. In the afternoon, we proceed to the game drive in masai mara game reserve.
Full day spent exploring the park in search of the big 5. Morning and afternoon game drives are offered. Optional hot air balloon safari can be arranged at an extra cost of US$ 450 per person. The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures.
Breakfast then view game as you exit the park and drive to Nairobi to arrive by 1500 hrs.
