Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival – Nairobi (12.00hrs) – Lake Nakuru National Park

Upon your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport at 12.00hrs, you will be met by the Management of Marascarface Travelers and be warmly received and welcomed for the safari. You will also be briefed before departing to Lake Nakuru National Park, which is 2 hours drive from Nairobi. Upon arrival you will check in to the guest house and have late lunch before departing for an afternoon game drive within the park.

Dubbed ‘the greatest bird spectacle on earth due to the millions of fuchsia-pink flamingo that flock to feed on the teeming algae of its alkaline waters, Lake Nakuru is also an ornithologist’s paradise and also a sanctuary for both black and white rhino. Its pink-frosted shores and sky-mirrored waters also yield some of the most evocatively beautiful photo images in Africa. The park offers an incredible 450 different species of water, fish-eating, terrestrial and migratory birds including the pelican, fish eagle, secretary bird, heron, egret, hammer kop and grebe. Established as Kenya’s first rhino sanctuary, the park now hosts one of the largest black rhino concentrations in the country while substantial numbers of white rhino have also been introduced

Day 2: Lake Nakuru National Park – Maasai Mara National Reserve

You will enjoy early morning game viewing to get a chance to spot the early predators. You will visit the baboon rocks for a spectacular view of thousands of flamingos feeding in the alkaline water, looking out for waterbucks, warthogs and giraffe. You will then return to the guest house for breakfast. After breakfast, you will check out and depart to Maasai Mara crossing Loita Plains and arriving in Mara in time for lunch at the tented camp. After lunch you will depart for afternoon game drives within the park.

In the Maasai Mara it is possible to enjoy a hot air balloon ride at an extra cost. These balloons take off at dawn to avoid the heat which develops as the day progresses. They drift high over grazing herds which cannot be accessed by vehicles. After approximately an hour’s flight, a gentle landing is followed by a champagne-style bush breakfast on the landing site, where pilots and passengers toast yet another memorable experience.

Day 3: Maasai Mara National Reserve

Spend two days viewing wildlife across this game studded reserve. You will also have a chance to spot the annual wildebeest migration which takes place every year from July to October. You will also look out for the big five and other plains game. Enjoy picnic lunches to avoid disrupting game viewing.

In November 2006 the Maasai Mara was named as the New 7th wonder of the world because of what experts termed as “the uniqueness of the area and the preservation it provides to so many species living in harmony”. It is understandable because this annual migration is the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth.

The combination of scenery, people and animals is what makes Amboseli National Park quite fascinating.
