5-Day Magical Choices to L Naivasha/L Nakuru/Masai Mara

A 5-day safari in Kenya will take you across vast Savannahs teeming with the Big Five, lakes teeming with colorful birds, and forests and parks teeming with rhinos, leopards, giraffes, and more. This safari in Kenya is a celebration of Africa’s diversity, taking you from the calm blue waters of Lakes Naivasha and Nakuru, which are home to flamingos and hippos, to the Masai Mara Plains, which are home to lions and wildebeests. Our African tour showcases the best of Kenya’s biodiversity.

Day 1: Nairobi to Lake Naivasha pick-up and switch

Pick up from the airport or hotel and drive to Lake Naivasha, stopping for 20-30 minutes at the Great Rift Valley escarpment. After that, we’ll pause at Hell’s Gate National Park, which is mostly composed of a Savannah biome and is home to a diverse range of species, including vultures, Verreaux’s Eagles, augur buzzards, and swifts. African buffalo, zebra, eland, hartebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, and baboons are among the wildlife. Klipspringer antelope can also be found in the park. Later in the evening, you will take a boat ride on Naivasha’s blue bay (optional)

Enashipai Resort and Spa (dinner and overnight)

Both meals are provided in the meal schedule, as well as drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Day 2: Move from Lake Naivasha to Lake Nakuru National Park.

We then travel to Lake Nakuru National Park, which is known by amateur birders as the world’s largest ornithological spectacle. The park is known for its flocks of pink flamingos that line the lake’s edge. The Black Rhino, White Rhino, and Rothschild Giraffe all call the park home. Lesser and Greater Flamingos, African Fish Eagles, Tawny Eagles, Green Wood Hoopoes, Cliff Chats, Great White and Pink Backed Pelicans, and other intra-African migrants are among the bird life.

Arrive in plenty of time for lunch, then check into your Lodge. Until returning to the Lodge for dinner and an overnight stop, go on an afternoon game drive in this park, which has a large population of other wildlife.

At Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge, you’ll have dinner and spend the night.

Both meals are provided in the meal schedule, as well as drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Day 3: Masai Mara National Reserve to Lake Nakuru National Park

After breakfast, we drive to Masai Mara Game Reserve, which has grassy fields and rolling hills and is lined by the Mara and Talek rivers, making it one of the few areas on the planet where wildlife still exists in the numbers that once roamed Africa’s plains and forests. Lions, cheetahs, tigers, zebras, and hippos are among the species that live there. On their annual migration, wildebeest pass across the plains. Arrive in time for lunch, then go on an afternoon game drive in the Masai Mara National Reserve to see the incredible wildlife. Return to your cabin for dinner, rest, and an overnight stay.

Ilkeliani luxurious tented camp for dinner and overnight.

Both meals are provided in the meal schedule, as well as drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Exploration of the Masai Mara Plains on Day 4

Spend another two full days in Masai Mara, with unrestricted game drives in the reserve to explore the park in search of the big five – an optional balloon safari can be planned for an additional US$ 450 per person. Dinner and an overnight stay at Ilkeliani tented camp are included.

Over 450 species of animals have been reported in the Mara, making it one of the most diverse and abundant wildlife areas on the planet. Lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, various antelopes, and elephants are all common sightings. The Mara is home to what is perhaps the most amazing natural occurrence on the planet. The annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from Tanzania’s Serengeti in search of water and grazing is known as the Serengeti Migration. The animals of the savanna, such as the elephant, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena, and vultures, are close behind.
