This tour will take you to Kenya’s three most popular tourist destinations: the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, and Lake Naivasha. The “Big Five” (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo) live in Masai Mara, as well as zebras, antelope, hyenas, giraffes, and African lions, including the black-maned lion. The largest draw to Lake Nakuru is undoubtedly its massive flamingo population, which can reach 1.5 million at times. Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake located just north of Nairobi, Kenya.
Nairobi to Masai Mara: Masai Mara afternoon game drives Your safari will begin with a pickup from your Nairobi hotel. Depending on where you are picked up, your day will start around 7:30 a.m. The journey to the Maasai Mara, the day’s destination, will take approximately 6 hours. You’ll make a brief stop at a viewpoint along the way to see the rift valley’s great depression. By noon, you’ll be in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, just in time for a delicious lunch. You’ll go on a short game drive in the afternoon. When you return from your game drive, you’ll find a freshly prepared dinner waiting for you. Enjoy a restful night’s sleep in your chosen lodging, as you will be exploring the park extensively tomorrow.
Masai Mara: Full-day Masai Mara game drives After an early breakfast, you’ll leave at 8 a.m. for a full-day game drive. The famous Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino), as well as wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, and ferocious crocodiles near the Mara river, call the 1510-square-kilometer park home. You might even witness a kill if you’re lucky. Numerous predators are attracted to the abundant resident population of zebras, impalas, gazelles, ostriches, and topis, making for an exciting game viewing experience. During the game drive, you’ll have a picnic lunch inside the park. By 5 p.m., the full-day game drive will come to a close, followed by a delicious dinner. Make sure you get some rest so you can be ready for the next day’s adventure.
Masai Mara to Lake Naivasha. After a hearty breakfast, you’ll go on a short morning game drive in Masai Mara. Later, you’ll travel to Lake Naivasha, the day’s destination. The drive from Masai Mara to Lake Naivasha takes about 5 hours, and you’ll stop for lunch along the way. You will check in and rest at the hotel after arriving late in the afternoon at Lake Naivasha accommodation.
Lake Naivasha to Lake Nakuru: Crescent Island Boat Ride and Hike Lake Naivasha is Kenya’s highest freshwater lake, standing at 1880 meters above sea level.
