About The Parks
The Masai Mara famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards, cheetahs and its annual migration of zebra and wildebeest which occur from July to October and Lake Nakuru national park famous for the big four and a bird’s sanctuary. )The combination of a gentle climate, scenic splendor and untold numbers of wildlife makes the Masai Mara National Reserve Kenya's most popular inland destination.
Lake Nakuru National Park is dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation. Twenty seven percent (27%) of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters.

Lunch at our Camp and relax before departing for the afternoon game run. The Mara Game Reserve – one of the greatest wildernesses of the world. Large mammals are varied, and easy to see.

Day 2: Masai Mara
The search for great predators and perhaps even cubs continues today during extensive game runs. On the plains are enormous herds of grazing animals plus the elusive cheetah and leopard hiding amidst acacia boughs. Masai Mara remains the most exciting wildlife eco-system in the world.
The reserve hosts the highest concentration of wild animals per sq. km than any other park in the region. The scenic appeal of this tree studded savannah, its’ modest temperatures and diversity of wild game species makes the reserve a one stop shop for game viewing.
We shall transverse the reserve on unlimited game viewing drives in search of the big five and more species of the lesser games. Our mid-day meals will either be picnic or at camp. Dinner and overnight at your camp
Day 3 : Masai Mara – Drive to Lake Nakuru National Park
