    Masai Mara is situated in south-west 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. I am sure you have heard the wildebeest migration is nothing short of amazing. It is one of the things you have to add to your bucket list.

    The balloon ride is highly recommended in Maasai mara very early in the morning in search of Africa’s Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange-tinged rise and sunsets that one can make for spectacular photos. Much game is coming at your doorstep when you in the park leaving you with only the option of counting your blessings that nature holds for you as you view them in their natural habitat using a birds-eye view.

    This will be the full day explore the Masai Mara, breakfast will be served as early as 0730am, then our cook will pack for you fresh picnic lunch since the whole day will be exploring the Masai Mara famous 7th wonders of the World.

    This game reserve is Kenya’s finest wildlife sanctuary. Including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebra, there is also resident wildlife year-round. The Mara’s gentle fertile climate bounded by The Rift offers perhaps the richest stocked reserve set within some 1672 sq km – an unlimited spectacle of wildlife. Located 268 km west of Nairobi, the emphasis here is on the game. Herds of immense Elephants, browse among Lion, Buffalo, Thompson Gazelle, Zebra and Topi. You may occasionally sight black Rhino. In the Mara River Hippos play and Cross bask on the banks… After exploring the park return to the camp for dinner and overnight.

    Game viewing in Nakuru will be done on day 4 in the morning till lunchtime. This is so because Lake Nakuru hardly allows re-entry to the park and if we get to the park on this material day we shall only have a few hours before its closing time than getting to the park in the morning and spend good time exploring the park on Day 4 (this will be possible if you opt for http://kranhotels.com/ as this budget accommodation is outside the park ) otherwise for the lodge option you will have both evening and morning game viewing in Lake Nakuru since lodge facilities are located inside lake Nakuru National park and one can take advantage of the lodge location for more game viewing.

Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for bird watching, hiking, picnic, and game drives.

    Also to be seen is a myriad different variety of birdlife in and around the lake. Flamingos are also plenty at the lake though not as in the past few years due to the rise in water level.
