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.

DAY 6: MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE
Spend one 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.

DAY 7: MASAI MARA N. RESERVE- LAKE MAGADI
Early morning after breakfast you will leave Masai Mara to Lake Magadi. The lake covers an area of 104 sq. km Soda Lake is completely surrounded by vast natural salt flats. These sweltering plains prevent any animals from reaching the alkaline lake at its center. For this reason, thousands of flamingos descend on the Lake each year to feed on the algae and crustacean at the lake’s shore safe from any potential predators such as Fish eagle. Freshwater springs at the Lake’s shore attract a host of other birds like the specialty of this lake the Chestnut Banded Plover, Common Greenshank, Wood Sandpiper to name a few.
Dinner and Overnight at Lake Magadi Resort on Full Board
DAY 8: FULL DAY LAKE MAGADI
Spend full day at this freshwater springs at the Lake’s shore attract a host of other birds.
The baking salt plains stretch into horizons of shimmering heat haze, while the shallow lake heaves with the pink waves of nesting flamingo. The otherworldly atmosphere is compounded by the intense heat and the isolation.
Magadi is often the final destination for treks from the Nguruman escarpment or the Loita hills.
