This is a 5-day group safari to Maasai Mara National Reserve, Lake Nukuru and Hells Gate National Parks in Kenya.
The tour starts from Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary. We will see herds of immense elephants browse among lions, buffaloes, Thompson´s gazelles, zebras and topis. You may occasionally sight a rhino or a leopard. In the Mara River hippos play and bask on the river banks.
The Mara offers perhaps the richest stock reserve on earth: an unlimited spectacle of wildlife. Including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebras but there are resident wildlife year round.
Lake Nakuru National Park has scenic views of both Lake Naivasha and Lake Elementaita en route, which lie in the Great Rift Valley. Lake Naivasha is one of the Rift Valley's fresh water Lakes with different ecology from that of the Soda Lakes. It is also home to a large variety of bird species. Besides the flamingos that the lake is famous for, there are approx 400 other species of birds visiting the lake.
Many species of game can be found around Lake Nukuru National Park including the introduced Rothschild's giraffe, black and white rhino, waterbuck, reedbuck, lion, buffalo, leopard, baboon and many species of plains game.
Crater Lake offers an evocative step back in time - to a bygone era of elegance and romance, in a wilderness untouched by the modern world with a private game sanctuary at a homely environment. Crater Lake offers classic escapes including painting, astrology, as well as ornithological outings to what must be one of the most beautiful small Lakes in creation. The group can decide to do boat ride on the lake at extra cost.
