This safari covers the magical Masai Mara game reserve and the great rift valley lakes of Naivasha and Nakuru. The itinerary is good for the people looking for an adventurous safaris.

Lake Nakuru attracts the vast quantity of flamingos that famously line the shore. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons and other large mammals.
