5 Day Lake Nakuru, Maji Moto & Masai Mara

Destinations: Masai Mara National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park
Highlights: Trekking Mt Longonot, spotting the big five, discovering the colourful Maasai people.



Day 1: Nairobi – Nakuru
Depart from Nairobi heading north stopping for spectacular views over the Great Rift Valley. On the way you will see Mt Longonot, Lake Naivasha, road-side markets, and Lake Elementiata. At Lake Nakuru National Park you will enjoy lunch and a full afternoon game drive. Pass through acacia forest, open plains, stop for clifftop views, and even drive down to the lake shore.

Nakuru is famous for blue lake and pink rim, being home to thousands of flamingo that wade in the shallows of the lake. Once home to a third of the world’s flamingo population, numbers do fluctuate depending on water levels. The park is also renowned for the opportunity to spot some of Kenya’s rarest animals - the black rhino, white rhino, leopard and Rothchild’s giraffe.

Day 4: Masai Mara  
Enjoy a full day game viewing with picnic lunch on the Mara River over-looking the hippo pools and across to the Serengeti. Return to accommodation for dinner and overnight.

Kenya’s most popular reserve, the Masai Mara covers 1,510 sqkm and is an extension of the Serengeti eco system. Although animal populations are good year round, the spectacular migration of thousands of wildebeest and zebra during the months of July to October is what many come to see. Resident large animals are varied, plentiful and easy to see, with around 100 species recorded including the ‘big five’ - elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino - as well as giraffe, hippo, cheetah, hyena, zebra and numerous species of antelope. The reserve is also rich in birdlife with over 450 species seen in recent times, including many spectacular birds of prey.
