Drive through the floor of the Great Rift Valley from Nairobi, while stopping on the way for curios and to admire and marvel at the breathtaking views of the escarpment along the way arrive and head straight for a game drive in the park. The Park is renowned worldwide for its hundreds of thousands of pink flamingos that colour its shows in pink. Lake Nakuru is a shallow alkaline lake in Kenya's Rift Valley and some 62 km2 in extent. In late 80's the park also became Kenya's first rhino sanctuary and is today home to both the White and Black Rhinos. Lions, leopards, hippos, giraffes, waterbucks are equally at home in this unique park.

Day3: Lake Nakuru National Park- Lake Naivasha-Boat Ride
After breakfast, head to Naivasha for a Boat Ride on Lake Naivasha spot the many species of waterfowl and brilliantly colored kingfishers. The lake is a birdwatchers fantasy. There are over 450 species in the immediate area including the highland escarpments, which surround the lake to the south and west. From October to March, palaearctic migrants generously supplement the resident bird population. On Lake Naivasha, pelicans and cormorants are numerically superior but pride of place must go to the African Fish Eagle whose haunting call remains as significant to lake visitors as does the roar of a lion in the parks.
It makes an excellent opportunity to combine wildlife and landscape photography, so make sure that you come with several camera chips so that you can snap away to your heart's content!
Overnight: Sawela Lodges
Meals – Breakfast in Nakuru, Lunch and Dinner Naivasha
Day 4: Lake Naivasha-Masai Mara Game Reserve
After breakfast, drive to Masai Mara Game Reserve. Arrive and have lunch before embarking for an afternoon game drive.
The jewel in Africa’s crown, Masai Mara, is host to the most spectacular array of wildlife such as Lions, elephant, Cheetah, leopard, Rhinos, giraffe, gazelle, and zebras among others. Game viewing is never dull in the Mara and patience is often rewarded with unique sightings: a pride of lion stalking their prey; a solitary leopard retrieving its kill from the high branches of an acacia tree; a male wildebeest sparring to attract females into their harem; a herd of elephant protecting their young from opportunistic predators.
Overnight: Masai Mara Sopa Lodge
Meals - Breakfast in Naivasha; Lunch and Dinner in Masai Mara
Day 5 And 6: Two Full Days in The Masai Mara Game Reserve
A full day is spent game viewing and exploring this natural wonder with a visit to the Mara River where the wildebeest migration takes place. Here you can see both the hippos and the crocodiles that coexist in the same waters.
The Masai Mara is Kenya’s most popular safari destination and for good reason. It is a vast reserve of endless flat grassland crossed by rivers which play host to wildlife’s most spectacular moments. Its biggest drawcard is the Wildebeest Migration when vast hordes of Wildebeest roar through the park bringing in its trail a wake of mighty predators. If you’re lucky enough to be in Masai Mara during the migration pick a spot by the river and watch enraptured as crocs and lions compete to pick-off stragglers from the clattering herds of wildebeest.
Optional Afternoon Visit to a Masai Cultural Village: This afternoon, we have an option of joining the Maasai dancers donning their African regalia and the jingling on their feet, flow by the rhythm of African beats and dance to their tunes that will leave you refreshed. Cost Per Person: $35. Advance booking advised.
Overnight: Masai Mara Sopa Lodge
