HIGHLIGHTS

  • Have you ever watched the movie, Lion King? Well, imagine that coming to life and being a part of it. This Safari is not your average African holiday. People all over the world come to Kenya to witness this spectacle. The migration occurs within an area that is known as the “Serengeti ecosystem.” The 40,000-square mile area is defined by Masai Mara National Reserve in the north and, in the south, Ndutu, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Maswa Game Reserve in Tanzania.

Day 1  Arrive in Nairobi, Kenya

Arrival in Nairobi. Have a quick safari briefing and rest in preparation for the upcoming safari.

About Nairobi:
Nairobi is Kenya’s capital city. In addition to its urban core, the city has Nairobi National Park, a large game reserve known for breeding endangered black rhinos and home to giraffes, zebras, and lions. Next to it is a well-regarded elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Nairobi is also often used as a jumping-off point for safari trips elsewhere in Kenya.

Day 2 Lake Nakuru National Reserve
Day 2  Lake Nakuru National Reserve

After breakfast, you will be driven to Lake Nakuru and arrive around lunchtime at Lake Nakuru Lodge. You will have an afternoon game drive. Lake Nakuru is famous for the big populations of Flamingos during the dry season. The Park also contains Kenya’s largest population of rhinos. Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes at an elevation of 1754 m above sea level. It lies to the south of Nakuru, in the rift valley of Kenya, and is protected by Lake Nakuru National Park.

The lake's abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons, and other large mammals. Eastern black rhinos and southern white rhinos have also been introduced.

The lake's level dropped dramatically in the early 1990s but has since largely recovered. In 2013, the lake received an alarming increase in the water levels that led to the migration of flamingos to Lake Bogoria in search of food supply.

Main Destination: Lake Nakuru National Park

Day 3 Masai Mara Game Reserve
Day 3 Masai Mara Game Reserve

After breakfast, you will meet up with your guide and head off to Masai Mara and take your lunch boxes with you.

After enjoying your afternoon Kenyan tea and coffee, head out in the afternoon for an exciting game viewing adventure. The Maasai Mara National Reserve (MMNR) covers some 1,510 km2 (583 sq mi) in south-western Kenya. It is the northernmost section of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, which covers some 25,000 km2 (9,700 sq mi) in Tanzania and Kenya. It is bounded by the Serengeti Park to the south, the Siria escarpment to the west, and Maasai pastoral ranches to the north, east, and west. Rainfall in the ecosystem increases markedly along a southeast-northwest gradient, varies in space and time, and is markedly bimodal. After the game drive, head back to your lodge.

Maasai Mara (Masai Mara) is situated in southwest Kenya and is one of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves. Together with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, it forms Africa’s most diverse, incredible, and most spectacular eco-systems and possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing eco-system.

In 1994, the Trans Mara County Council (TMCC) was formed in the western part of the reserve, and control was divided between the new council and the existing Narok County Council. In May 2001, the not-for-profit Mara Conservancy took over management of the Mara Triangle.
