  • Not a boring moment in the whole trip because of the abundance of activities

This 5 Day African Safari tour will cover both wildlife tour and adventure safari as we explore the famous Maasai Mara which is well known for its annual migration of wildebeest and zebras in July to October.

This trip will also take us to the Great Rift Valley lakes for bird watching. Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru both have a large number of birds including flamingos. It also has a sanctuary for endangered black and white Rhinoceros.

At Lake Naivasha {Hell's gate} you have a chance to walk the gorge with a guide to see the rock layers. Naivasha has no predators so you will be able to walk with animals too.
