Aberdares, L.Nakuru & Masai Mara – 5 Days 4 Nights
DAY 1: NAIROBI- ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK
Early morning our driver will pick you up from Airport and drive you to Aberdare National Park on arrival lunch will be taken at Aberdare Country Club. After lunch, set off for the Ark tree lodge, located in the forest on mountain slopes of the Aberdare Mountains at 7,000 feet. This outstanding lodge offers high altitude game viewing, including animals that are rarely encountered elsewhere: giant forest hog, bush pig, tree hyrax, large spotted genet, and the elusive bongo. Wildlife can be observed from different levels and from outside where you can see, hear and smell everything and inside where you can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy. A herd of Elephants might be just feet away and if you are lucky, a Leopard or large male Lion might put in an appearance.
Dinner and Overnight at the Ark or Treetops Hotel on Full Board.
DAY 2: ABERDARES NATIONAL PARK – LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK
Our destination today is Lake Nakuru National Park. Arriving in time for Lunch and check in. You will have enough time to freshen up, relax within the lodge as you wait for an afternoon game drive at Lake Nakuru Park. Enjoy an afternoon game drive a long side the shores of the lake where you will have an opportunity of seeing migratory birds. In the acacia woodland, you will search for the plain game including the White Rhino.
Lake Nakuru National Park hosts a fresh water lake. The surface of the shallow lake is often hardly recognizable due to the continually shifting mass of pink. The lake's abundance of algae attracts the vast quantity of flamingos that famously lines the shore. The park has recently been enlarged partly to provide the sanctuary for the black rhino. This undertaking has necessitated a fence to keep out poachers rather than to restrict the movement of wildlife.
The park now has more than 25 rhinos, one of the largest concentrations in the country, so the chances of spotting these survivors are good. There are also a number of Rothschild's giraffe, again trans-located for safety from western Kenya beginning in 1977. Waterbuck are very common and both the Kenyan species are found here. Among the predators are lion and leopard, the latter being seen much more frequently in recent times. The park also has large sized pythons that inhabit the dense woodlands, and can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees.
Dinner and Overnight at Flamingo Hill camp or a similar hotel on Full Board basis.
DAY 3: LAKE NAKURU N. PARK – MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE
After an early breakfast set off for the highlight of your trip, the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Enjoy a game drive en-route to your lodge where you might encounter some of the “Big Five” (Lion. Elephant. Buffalo. Rhino. Leopard.) And you will most certainly be impressed by the wide variety of species present in this area. The Masai Mara has the highest concentration of Sopaland mammals compared to all other parks.
Dinner and Overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge or Similar on Full Board.
DAY 4: MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE
Spend more exciting day with unlimited game drives exploring the Mara, home to the proud and traditional Maasai tribe. We can arrange a visit to a local Maasai Village if you like. (@ an extra cost) The Mara is more than just the most popular wildlife park in the country; in many cases it is the reason why people come to visit Kenya. This is a classic African savanna, and the sheer density of wildlife is amazing. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and where prey is found so are predators. Watered by the Mara River and its tributary the Talek, the park here compromises 1510 sq kilometres of open grassland tucked away in the south west corner of the country. In the Mara you will see an astonishing amount of wild life, including the big cats, where lions are found in large prides everywhere and it is not uncommon to see them hunting. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but are still fairly common. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos also exist in large numbers.
