  • kenya-safaris-4-days-masai-mara-lake-nakuru-safari



This 4 days safari sees you visiting the most famous national park in Kenya, The Maasai Mara and the world’s largest bird spectacle, the Lake Nakuru. The Masai Mara Game Reserve is one of the best places in Africa for wildlife viewing. Game drives are a great way to experience the park and they take place all year round. If the big cats are what you’re looking for on your Kenyan safari, you are guaranteed to spot them at the Mara. For bird lovers the Mara birds come in every color and size with more than than 400 bird species, including birds of prey.

This safari takes you to two of Kenya’s premier national parks endowed with large populations of plains game and big predators. The tour starts with Masai mara game reserve where you will be immersed in a wildlife theatre like you have not seen before. Where night is marked by different wildlife sounds and awoken at dawn by chirping birds and laughing hyenas. It’s in Masai mara where you witness the high drama at high noon at the mara river cross when thousands of wildebeest cross river mara only to die from the raging waters, the crocodiles and the predators. It’s here where over 1.5million wildebeests cross between two countries covering an area of 3,000km and going against enormous odds to reach fresh pasture.

Lake Nakuru also gives you a calm atmosphere of observing this soda lake located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. The lake Nakuru national park is known for its large populations of flamingos, over 450 species of birds and a great number of white and black rhinos that will share the roads with your vehicle. The tree climbing lions are also captivating to watch among other animals found here.
