Itinerary

Depart Nairobi in the early morning stopping enroute to view the spectacular Great Rift Valley from the escarpment looking out for Mt Suswa and Longonot in the far distance. We arrive in time for lunch at the resort followed by a relaxation by the pool.
This small saline Lake Bogoria is home to various birds and depending on the time of year numerous Lesser and Greater Flamingos; a wonderful sight of pink which you can enjoy walking along the shores..
There is the option to visit a Pokot village to get an insight into their traditional way of life (extra cost).
About half of the Pokot are semi nomadic and semi pastoralists. They herd cattle, sheep and goats relying on their products to sustain their livelihoods.
Dinner and overnight at the Lake Bogoria Spa Resort

After breakfast, depart for Nakuru National Park which covers 180 sq km and is home to warthogs, waterbuck, buffaloes, reedbucks, and the occasional leopard. White and black rhinos were introduced to the park some years ago and the park has also retained its reputation as a bird watchers’ delight with more than 400 species of bird found here.
Arrive in time for lunch and in the afternoon embark on a game drive
Dinner and overnight at the Cliff Camp

Early breakfast and depart and we proceed to towards Narok town. We make a stop for lunch en route and arrive Masai Mara in the late afternoon. We arrive at the camp and relax by the pool. Birdwatching in the Masai Mara isn’t for the birds. With almost 500 bird species and a daunting 47 species of birds of prey, the Masai Mara’s treetops, bushes and skies are a feast for birdwatcher’s eyes. Size wise these savannah birds range from freakishly large, such as the world’s largest bird the ostrich, to teeny tiny sunbirds – hard to spot with the naked eye.
Later you may enjoy a guided nature or bird walk in the vicinity of the camp grounds.
Dinner and overnight at Ashinl Mara Camp

Early morning and late afternoon game drives returning to the camp for lunch. Masai Mara game drives are rewarding all year round. It is common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal as well as cheetahs and leopards which are harder to spot.
Dinner and overnight at Ashnil Mara Camp

After breakfast depart with a packed lunch to enjoy a full day exploring the parks and rivers which offer very good opportunities for seeing the Big Five. There are various optional activities offered outside of game drives for an extra cost. For example; balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for a beautiful champagne breakfast. Horse riding is also an option in vast open spaces dotted with lonely umbrella acacias, masses of wildebeest, dazzles of zebras and other wildlife. A cultural village visit is also recommended.
Dinner and overnight at Ashnil Mara Camp

Early breakfast before departing back towards Nairobi. Before departure there is the option to enjoy a nature walk in the company of a Masai safari guide. This is the best way of getting closer to nature and its wildlife. Your safari guide armed with traditional Masai spear and club will walk you through the local area where all your senses will be put into action at every step. Smell the plants used in traditional medicines, taste some of the edible wild fruits, listen to the birds and the grunting of the Impala, identify footprints and animal spoor.
We arrive back in Nairobi in the late afternoon. Drop off at your hotel.
