4 Days/ 3 Nights Lake Naivasha & Masai Mara Game Reserve Safari from Nairobi takes you to Lake Naivasha, a small beautiful fresh water lake rich in birdlife. Lake Naivasha Crescent Island – a private sanctuary visit allows you to see Zebras, Waterbucks and various Antelope species at close range. The grand finale of your 4 day Safari is to the world renowned Masai Mara National Reserve – Kenya’s finest and most outstanding wildlife sanctuary.

4 Days/ 3 Nights Lake Naivasha & Masai Mara Game Reserve Safari from Nairobi travels by road to papyrus-fringed Lake Naivasha, a cool and peaceful escape from Nairobi’s big-city bustle.

Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake and is part of the Great Rift Valley. The name derives from the local Masai name Nai’posha, meaning “rough water” because of the sudden storms which can arise.  

The lake is home to a variety of wildlife; over 400 different species of bird have been reported. This freshwater lake is a birding paradise. There is a sizeable population of hippos in the lake.  

Along the lake’s fabled waters, we are bound to see some of the area’s more intriguing species—Hippos, Giraffes, Buffalo and even the arboreal Colobus monkey. Floriculture forms the main industry around the lake.  

Our next destination for 2 Nights is the Masai Mara Game Reserve – Kenya’s finest and most outstanding wildlife sanctuary where gentle rolling grassland ensures animals are never out of sight. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well spread rainfall year round.  

The sensation of the great wildebeest migration between July and October is unparalleled. The wildlife is far from being confined within the Reserve boundaries and an even larger area extends beyond the game Reserve.  

Centuries of close association with the wildlife has resulted in an almost symbiotic relationship where wildlife and Masai people live in peace with one another. 

The first sight of Masai Mara Game Reserve is breathtaking. There is nowhere else on earth to compare with this wildlife marvel. The combination of a gentle climate, scenic splendor and untold numbers of wildlife makes the Masai Mara National Reserve Kenya’s most popular inland destination.
