This safari takes you through three very different game viewing experiences: Aberdares, Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara.

In the Aberdares you find icy rivers, spectacular waterfalls and rain forests. Here elephants, buffaloes and other animals visit you at the floodlit waterholes of The Ark.

Lake Nakuru’s claim to fame is anchored on its flamingo’s and the over 400 species of birds found here. This soda lake on the floor of the Rift Valley is host to millions of flamingos and an important refuge for endangered species- particularly Rothschild Giraffe and black and white rhino.

You then head to Maasai Mara, Kenya’s most famous and finest game sanctuary. The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see the Big Five- lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard, and elephant. The famous Maasai tribesmen live within the dispersal area of the game reserve.
