Masai Mara & Lake Nakuru Safari

5 Days/ 4 Nights Masai Mara & Lake Nakuru Safari explores two major parks…the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve and Lake Nakuru National parks in 5 Days and 4 Nights. This trip starts and ends in Nairobi

5 Days/ 4 Nights Masai Mara & Lake Nakuru National Park takes you to the Masai Mara – Kenya’s most famous and finest game sanctuary and Lake Nakuru National Park – bird sanctuary.  

In the months of June and July each year, the wildebeests in their troops arrive at the Kenyan border, ready to cross the steep banks of the broad and fast flowing Mara River.  

This crossing is truly the greatest episode of the entire migration. Hot on their heels are the predators of the savannah – lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures.  

The banks of the Mara River provide one of the best vantage points to witness the drama. The Masai Mara also offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will most likely see the Big Five- lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard, and elephant. Not to mention numerous plain animals. 

Lake Nakuru National Park is dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation.  

Twenty seven percent (27%) of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters. The park was declared a rhino sanctuary in 1983. The Rhino stocking programme which ensued received white rhinos from South Africa. Currently the sanctuary has approximately 45 black and 31 white Rhinoceros.

Day 3: Discover Masai Mara Game Reserve

We spend a full day in the Masai Mara on morning and afternoon game drives. The trees in the distance might turn out to be a family of Giraffes. Those clump of bushes a pride of Lions, and the rock that moves a Rhino lumbering out of your way.  

With diligence and some luck, you may encounter a family of Cheetahs, or a herd of Elephants crossing the path in front of you. Large animals are not the only entertainment – a family of warthogs may amuse you, running as fast as their little legs will carry them, until they forget why they are rushing and stop to regroup.
