4-Day Lake Nakuru Masai Mara Private Budget Safari

This safari is by far one of our most popular budget camping safaris which can also be customized into a mid-range or luxury safari; a private safari that takes you deep into the heart of the great Flamingo paradise, Lake Nakuru National Park. You will see flamingos in their thousands, view the rare Black and White Rhinos, and visit wildebeest migration scenery at the Masai Mara. You will also get a lifetime opportunity to interact with the Masai people in their dwellings 'manyattas' and learn more about their culture. It's an experience like no other.
