Itinerary

Pick up from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and drive to the Great Rift Valley viewing sceneries enroute. We arrive at the lodge in good time for lunch. Lunch at a lodge followed by full afternoon game drives. On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for bird watching, and game drives. Dinner and overnight stay Meal Plan: Lunch, Dinner
Today is set for a full day exploring /photographing the National Park. This area was made famous by the spectacular pink flamingos that gather on its salt encrusted shores as well as for other bird species including African fish eagles and pelicans. The woodland and grassland surrounding the soda lake are home to an abundance of wildlife including rhino, hippo, leopard, lion and the rare Rothschild giraffe. Dinner and overnight stay Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
After breakfast, drive to Masai Mara via Lake Naivasha. Post lunch, leave for afternoon game drive. Dinner and overnight stay Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
We will spend 2 days exploring the Masai Mara, with its abundance of large mammals and diverse birdlife. We have the option to either have full and complete days out in the field when and lunch can be served out on the savannah or we can return to camp for lunch. Big cats are a very prominent feature of the Masai Mara and also include Cheetahs and Leopards, both of which are fairly straightforward to find here. We are definitely at ‘Predator Central’ here and there can be few, if any wildlife spectacles anywhere in the world that can rival the tension, drama and emotion of a Mara crossing. As many as a million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra attempt this epic journey each year. Watching as thousands of wildebeest and zebra gather at a crossing point you can almost feel the pressure build on the animals at the front as they consider the right time to attempt to cross the dangerous waters of the crocodile-infested Mara River. It is, however, a time of plenty for the gigantic Nile Crocodiles that live in the river and lie in wait as hundreds of thousands of animals head north from the Serengeti Plains to feed on the lush Mara grasslands. The foaming waters, noise and drama of a Mara crossing has to be experienced to be believed and offers dramatic action photo opportunities. Dinner and overnight stay Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
