Day by Day Overview
This morning we depart Nairobi by road and proceed to Lake Nakuru National Park, regarded by avid birders as one of the greatest ornithological spectacles on earth with its millions of pink flamingoes lining on lake shore. Arriving mid morning at Lake Nakuru enjoy a game drive en route before checking-in at your lodge for lunch. A spectacular afternoon game drive is planned. Lake Nakuru National Prak is a sanctuary to the black and white rhino and the Rothschild giraffe. The wealth of bird life includes common species like the lesser and greater glamingo, African fish eagle, tawny eagle, green wood hoopoe, cliff chat, great white and pink backed pelican plus other intra-African migrants.
We drive through bucolic countryside to Lake Navaisha. Our destination is Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge / Lake Naivasha Simba Lodge or Lake Naivasha Country Club. We arrive in time for lunch at our lodge by the lake and early afternoon we take an optional boat ride. Alternatively, a nature walk at Crescent Island is an excellent way to see wild animals while on foot. The Island is a private game sanctuary, home to zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, vervet monkeys, hares, genet cats, waterbuck and giraffe. Or you may wish to lounge by the pool admiring the view of zebras, giraffes and waterbuck just outside the fence.
Depart Lake Naivasha for Masai Mara Game Reserve – the jewel in Kenya’s crown. This enormous reserve is actually part of the vast Serengeti Plains, famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest migration and home of the Big Five -lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and Cape buffalo. Upon arrival, enjoy lunch followed by a late evening ‘Spice’ game drive in the reserve. In the evening, we relax around the camp/lodge fire before an excellent dinner.
Wake up in the morning and embark on a full day in the remarkable Masai Mara National Reserve, searching for a hunt and the Big Five. Enjoy lunch by the Mara River.
Begin today with a complete English breakfast at your lodge, followed by ‘Spice’ game drive en route to Nairobi. The balance of the day is at leisure for last minute assisted shopping and sightseeing.
