Overview

Highlights

  • Visit Beautiful Lake Nakuru, sometimes covered in thousands of pink flamingoes
  • The golden grasslands of the Masai Mara, renowned for its huge herds of game and large number of predators
  • Explore The stunning Great Rift Valley
  • Enjoy Game drives and quintessential safari experiences

Short Description

This tour combines two of Kenya’s most famous wildlife areas: alkaline Lake Nakuru in the Great Rift Valley, whose surface is often obscured by flocks of pink flamingo, and the game-rich plains of the Masai Mara. From July to September, the Mara plays host to huge herds of wildebeest and zebra, which migrate from the Serengeti down south. Yet the rest of the year still offers fabulous gameviewing as there are plenty of resident game on these plains, from lion to cheetah.

Take in spectacular views of the Great Rift Valley and pass by scenic Lake Naivasha as you travel. The park surrounding Lake Nakuru is also of interest, with populations of rhino, leopard and buffalo.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
