After breakfast, drive to Lake Nakuru, one of the seven (7) Great Rift Valley Lakes. We will stop at the Great Rift Valley View Point for photos before continuing to Lake Nakuru
The Great Rift Valley has formed millions of years ago. Stretching some 5,000miles from Jordan to Mozambique, its the longest rift on Earth. In Kenya, it gave rise to many lakes that have become a habitat for diverse wildlife, one such lakes is Lake Nakuru- a soda lake.
Lunch will be served at the hotel. This afternoon we take a game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park often described as the world's biggest ornithological spectacle. This lake is famous for its flocks of over one million Greater and Lesser Flamingoes.
The abundance of these birds is due to the alkaline mineral salts in the water, which support vast blooms of the blue-green algae and diatoms on which the flamingoes feed.Lake Nakuru National Park was the first place in Kenya selected as a rhino reserve. Here is one of the few places where we can see Rothschild's giraffes. Dinner and Overnight at Golden Palace Resort OR CitiMax Hotel-Meal Plan: (Lunch & Dinner)
The highest of all the Rift Valley lakes, Lk. Naivasha is a beautiful shallow freshwater lake fringed by thick papyrus reeds. The waters of the lake draw great array of bird life to its shoreline.
Buffalo wallow in the swamps, whilst the large hippo population laze their days in the shallows. Giraffe wander among the acacia, whilst the Colobus monkeys swing from the green canopies above.
After breakfast, we pass by Lake Naivasha for an hour boat ride in the lake, to view pools of hippos and an array of over 150 species of birdlife that inhabits the lake.
Continue to the Masai Mara game reserve, a 1,500 sq. km slab of open Savannah dotted with acacia trees-the Kenyan section of the wildly beautiful Serengeti plains, teeming with wildlife. Being in the Mara has been described by some authorities as ‘’ being in the New York of the natural world’’
You will spend the next 02nights here to explore.
The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant.
It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena, and vultures. Lunch will be en route at Narok Town, followed by an evening game drive to dusk.

Full day game drives with picnic lunch in the bush. Today we cover a large area of the Reserve right from the Mara River and along the Migration Route, right up to the Tanzanian border.
This game reserve is Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary. Including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. Although July, August, and September are the months when the Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebra, there is also resident wildlife year-round.
