CRA-K 027: 3 Nights 4 Days Lake Nakuru & Maasai Mara - Very Popular Safari Circuit


This is a safari to one of the world famous Bird Sanctuaries of the Great Rift Valley Lake Nakuru, then South over the Mau Escarpment to Kenya's greatest concentration of game - Maasai Mara. Kenya's rift valley escarpments offer some of the most breath taking views. The Rift Valley is one of the wonders of the world stretching from the Middle East, down through Africa reaching as far as Mozambique. The staggering view as you approach from Nairobi is quite unbelievable. The ground suddenly disappears from under you to show the huge expanse of the great rift, stretching for thousands of miles in either direction. Whilst this stunning introduction to the Rift valley is amazing in itself, exploring the Lakes area of the Rift in Kenya is a rewarding experience.

Day 1: Nairobi - Lake Nakuru (Lunch, Dinner)

Depart Nairobi in the morning stopping enroute to view the spectacular Great Rift Valley arriving at Lake Nakuru in time for lunch. Lake Nakuru is a world famous bird sanctuary. Spend the late afternoon indulging in a game drive at the Lake Nakuru National park (commonly referred to as the Pink Lake) which covers 180 sq km. The park is home to Lion, Warthog, Waterbuck, Buffalo, Reedbuck and the occasional Leopard. White and black rhinos were introduced to the park some years ago and you may find white rhino at the southern end. The park has also retained its reputation as an ornithologists' delight with more than 400 species of bird found here. Dinner and overnight stay at Flamingo Hill Camp.

Day 2: Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara (Breakfast, Packed Lunch & Dinner)

A pre-breakfast game drive at the park will give us an opportunity to spot more game and bird species. Exit Nakuru National Park after breakfast and with packed lunch on the way as we proceed to Narok and Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Sopa Lodge or its equivalent

Day 3: Masai Mara (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)

After an early breakfast, we spend a full day in search of the Cats of Mara. This Reserve forms part of the Great Masai Mara-Serengeti Eco-system. Picnic lunch will be served at the Mara River Hippo Point where Hippos and Crocodiles can be viewed basking along the river bed. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange tinted sunsets and you will definitely want to capture this moment while sipping on a sun downer back at our lodge. The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of pasture before turning south again in October. Balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for a beautiful champagne breakfast. Hot air Balloon flight in Maasai Mara costs US$ 460 per person. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Sopa Lodge or its equivalent

Day 4: Maasai Mara – Nairobi (Breakfast, Packed Lunch)

After breakfast, check out and proceed to Nairobi with lunch enroute. Drop off at your Nairobi Hotel or at the airport to catch your onward flight
