Wildebeast Migration at Masai Mara

Lake Baringo is the most Northerly of Kenya's small Rift Valley lakes; creased with papyrus and well developed acacia forest. Hippos, Crocodiles and Monitor Lizards are effortlessly seen from the shore. The magnificent display of water birds leaves you amazed at God's phenomenal creation. This is Kenya's bird watching sanctuary with over 1200 recorded species native to the country and more than 450 sighted here. Dinner and overnight stay at Soi Safari Lodge / L. Baringo Country Club

These Lodges are situated along the shores of Lake Baringo facing the Seven Islands and Laikipia Escarpment, the most spectacular scenery

Day 2: Lake Baringo - Lake Bogoria - Lake Nakuru (Breakfast, Packed Lunch & Dinner)

After breakfast, we exit L. Baringo towards Marigat and on to Bogoria. A 30km drive south to the spectacular Lake Bogoria with hot springs and geysers being the main attraction. This lake has been called 'the new home of the flamingo' with a nomad population of up to two million birds. We enjoy picnic lunch and then proceed for an afternoon game drive at the Lake Nakuru National Park 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 3: Nakuru - Maasai 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 4: 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
