4 days on an experiential Safari trip:
Masai Mara, Masai Tribe, Thompson Falls and Nakuru Nature Reserve.
Day 1: After breakfast drive to the world’s famous Masai Mara Game Reserve which is seen by many as the jewel of Kenya’s park. The reserve is Kenya’s number one park and is always on every tourist’s “Must See List”. Full of life with various types of animals and birds, Masai Mara crown’s the climax of every safari in Kenya. Its rolling grasslands and acacia savannah have time and again been captured on film with the movie “Out of Africa” being the most famous. Masai Mara is home to the “Big Five” (Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard and Rhino) and over 450 bird species. Even when the migration is quiet, the Mara offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa; great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of elands, buffaloes, impalas and Grant’s gazelles. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Mara River, while cheetahs prowl the plains. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well spread rainfall year-round.
Arrive for lunch then head out for an afternoon game drive and start spotting nature at its best. Continue with the exploration of wildlife and as the sun starts to edge dip into the African horizon it will be the perfect opportunity for you to capture the beautiful Mara landscape on film. Dinner and overnight will be at the lodge/Camp.

You have the option to visit a Masai Village and learn about the Masai culture and their way of life or have a panoramic view of the Masai Mara in the early morning on a hot air balloon safari over the plains of the Masai Mara. These 2 activities are optional at an extra cost and can be arranged by our office at a discounted rate.
Day 3: After breakfast depart for Kenya’s finest Lake Nakuru National Park. The Park is in the Great Rift Valley and regarded by avid birders’ as the greatest World ornithological spectacle on the Earth.
This park was previously known for its thousands of Flamingoes coloring the lake pink and the rhino sanctuary amongst other wildlife. However due to the increase in water levels the flamingoes have decreased in numbers. However this park does provide too good chances of spotting the elusive leopard amongst other wildlife.
