8 Days Safaris
Masai Mara - Lake Nakuru - Lake Naivasha - Samburu
DAY 1, 2 AND 3
We shall drive from Nairobi to the Masai Mara National Park stopping for a picnic lunch on the way.
We shall arrive in time for an evening game drive and some sight seeing before retiring for the night at the Kairi campsite.
The wild life is far from confined within the reserve. The Thompson's and Gant's gazelle, topi, eland and many more species of the plain's game offer a rich choice of food for the dominant predators: the lion, leopard and cheetah which hunt in this pristine wilderness .
In the Mara river be sure to catch the hippo or the seemingly drowsy crocodile waiting with subtle cunning for prey at which to strike at with lightning swiftness.
Ever heard of the great march of the wildebeest. it is estimated that more than half a million wildebeest enter the Mara and are joined by another 100,000 from the east of Mara, trekking to the Kenyan border.
There is nowhere on earth to compare this wildlife marvel. Driving in the midst of this herds is an unimaginable experience.
