    Welcome to Nairobi and transfer to Nakuru National Park

    Arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Meet your driver-guide and after safari briefing, drive to Lake Nakuru National Park heading straight for a game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park.

    Lake Nakuru National Park has Kenya’s largest population of rhinos and is home to Lion Hill, Makalia waterfalls, unique vegetation, picturesque landscape, and yellow acacia woodlands with a wide range of birds. The most famous are flamingos and pelicans, located in the Great Rift Valley Lake System. The park's ecologically significant region has been named a Ramsar site and Important Bird Area and covers 73 sq. miles (188 sq. km). Lake Nakuru is world-famous for flamingos and was declared as a National Park to protect its stunning flocks of lesser flamingos which turn its shores pink. These are the millions of flamingos seeking their food in the salty deep-green waters of Lake Nakuru. The park is indeed a birds’ paradise hosting over 500 species.

    Animals include Thomson's gazelles, Grant's gazelles, impalas, waterbucks, giraffes, buffaloes, or even black rhinos, leopards, and about 450 bird species in total. Buffalo, leopard, lion, Rothschild's giraffe, black and white colobus monkey are plentiful in the forest. The bushlands offer eland, steinbok, impala, Chandler’s reedbuck, and dik-dik, whilst rock hyrax and klipspringer occupy the cliffs and escarpment.

    Dinner and overnight.

  • DAY 2

    Lake Nakuru National Park - Kenya's largest population of Rhinos!

    After breakfast, drive to Masai Mara Game Reserve and enjoy the afternoon game drive in the Game Reserve. Lunch in the lodge. In the afternoon, visit Masai Cultural Village to join the Masai dancers in their African regalia, flowing with the rhythm of African beats and dancing to their tunes.

    Masai Mara is the Game Reserve that is the land of BBC's Big Cat Diary and Disney's African Cats documentaries. It's a must-see for many Kenyans and visitors alike because the park is graced by a wide variety of unique and exquisite wildlife and birds. Masai Mara is the best place to see the "Big Five": elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos , and buffalo.

    Home of the Great Wildebeest Migration: The location of the annual Great Wildebeest Migration – one of the natural wonders of the world – is a gloriously beautiful, wildlife-rich savannah landscape. The annual Wildebeest Migration from June to October consists of over 1.5 million wildebeests, gazelles and zebras roaring at the border of Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara, making a spectacular entrance in a surging column of life that stretches from horizon to horizon, before finally plunging wildly into the raging waters of the Mara River, creating a frenzy as they fight against swift currents and hungry crocodiles awaiting. Those that survive crocodiles and raging waters cross over to the patiently waiting predators such as hyenas, jackals, leopards, and lions for another survival battle.

    The wildlife  in the Masai Mara is known as one of the finest wildlife destinations in the world. There is an excellent chance of seeing the Big 5, cheetah, serval, hyena, bat-eared fox, black-backed and side-striped jackal, hippo, crocodile, baboon, warthog, topi, eland, Thompson’s gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, and other African wildlife.

    Masai Mara Game Reserve

    Breakfast in the hotel and depart to enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in Masai Mara Game Reserve with a lunch break in between the game drives.

    Recommended Activities:
    Masai Mara Balloon Ride is the balloon safari. With an early morning wake up, you will be picked up at the hotel at 5:30 AM and drive to the balloon launch site. Enjoy early morning ballooning over the plains, getting a bird’s eye view of the game below as the sun creeps slowly over the horizon. After approximately one hour aloft, the balloon lands for the breakfast. The smell of bacon, sausages and eggs drifts in the breeze as we sample exotic Kenyan fruits and homemade pastries, and if you wish, glasses of bubbly to toast our flight, a tradition initiated by the Montgolfier brothers.

    Serengeti National Park via Isebania border

    Breakfast at the lodge and depart for Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch on the way. You will be picked up at the Isebania border and be transferred to Serengeti National park. Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeests' trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala, and Grant’s gazelle!

    Serengeti National Park - Spend a full day in Tanzania’s greatest park

    A full day is spent in this spectacle of predator versus prey in Tanzania’s greatest park. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while cheetahs prowl the southeastern plains. Almost uniquely, all three African jackal species occur here, alongside the spotted hyena and a host of more elusive small predators, ranging from the insectivorous aardwolf to the beautiful serval cat.

    Discover Ngorongoro Crater Rim

    Enjoy a morning game drive in central and southern Serengeti then drive to the Ngorongoro Crater Rim via the Olduvai area. You can visit a Maasai Village in the Olduvai area. The Maasai people who inhabit Kenya and northern Tanzania are semi-nomadic. Traditionally, they were pastoralists famous for their fearsome reputations as warriors and cattle-rustlers.

    In the late afternoon, proceed to your camp located on the crater rim for relaxation and overnight stay. The world-famous Ngorongoro Crater is at the eastern edge of the Serengeti in northern Tanzania. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera of the once-volcanic Ngorongoro, shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth, ringed with towering walls and sheltering forests, grasslands, fresh springs, and a large soda lake.

    Tarangire National Park - Explore one of the gems of Africa

    After breakfast, explore the Tarangire National Park, which is known for its tree-climbing lions and its very big herds of buffalo. This is one of Africa’s little-known gems and should be on the itinerary of all lovers of wilderness and solitude. Lesser kudu, eland, lion, and gerenuk can be found in this beautiful park, noted for its multitude of baobab trees and its tree-climbing lions.

    The game numbers are staggering: 30,000 zebras, 25,000 wildebeests, 5000 buffalos, 3000 elephants, 2500 Maasai giraffes and over 1000 fringe-eared oryx es (gemsboks).
