Explore the Great Rift Valley at length with a 5 day Masai Mara Lake Nakuru safari.
This trip promises sights unseen, from rolling hills, to wild game, apes, lakes, birds, reptiles, acacia woodlands and vast savannah landscapes.
This Masai Mara Lake Nakuru safari begins with a drive from Nairobi to Masai Mara.
Your first encounter with the Great Rift Valley will be at a stop at ViewPoint where you will see spectacular escarpment walls and deep valleys down below.
This drive will then continue until you get to the location where wildebeests darken the Mara grasslands every year in their migration from Serengeti.
You will spend two days here, taking in the sights and sounds of Kenya’s untamed beauty until you depart for Lake Nakuru.
Your final days in this Masai Mara Lake Nakuru safari will be enjoyed in a destination filled with so many feathered friends that your mornings will be filled with birdsong.
Wild animals and water-loving mammals such as waterbucks and hippos will keep you company from afar as you enjoy the awe-inspiring backdrop of the lake, euphorbia forest, Baboon cliff and Lion hill.
