4-Day Kenya Safari to Masai Mara & Lake Nakuru – Budget Safari

The Maasai Mara, Kenya’s most popular game park, is visited on this Kenya trip. On this Kenya safari, you will have the opportunity to see “the big five” as well as a variety of other game species. The great wildebeest migration, dubbed “the world’s largest nature spectacle,” takes place primarily in July and August each year. Lake Nakuru (Pink Lake) is so named because of its large flocks of flamingos, not to mention the park’s renowned white and black rhinos.

Day 1: Travel from Nairobi to Masai Mara in the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Pick up from the hotel at 8:00 a.m. and drive south along the Great Rift Valley’s surface, stopping at the viewpoint for a photo opportunity, arriving in time for lunch. After that, go for an evening game drive through the park, which is noted for its lush, tree-studded grassland and rolling hills. The famous Mara is also known for its large herds of plain game, black-maned lions, leopards, and cheetahs, but it also has elephants and almost any kind of wildlife found in Kenya. At Mara, we had dinner and stayed the night.
