Look for the charming chapel they built at the foot of the escarpment. You’ll pass the impressive Longonot earth satellite station as you head across the Valley to Narok, and then travel across acres of wheat and barley, before you reach the Masai Mara and your lodge in time for lunch. There will be an afternoon game drive.

Day 3 Masai Mara National Reserve

After an early breakfast, clients will depart for a visit to a Masai village and a morning game drive, returning to the lodge for lunch and perhaps a siesta before setting off for an afternoon game drive, returning to the lodge as the sunsets.

Overnight at your lodge* on a full board basis.  (BLD)

Day 4 Masai Mara Game Reserve – Lake Nakuru

Leaving the Masai Mara after breakfast, you’ll travel across the ‘breadbasket’ of Kenya, where acres of wheat and barley litter the landscape as you head north to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. Now travel across the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley, keeping an eye out for herds of giraffe and gazelle as you head up the Mau Escarpment, before arriving at Lake Nakuru. The waters here are often colored shimmering flamingo pink, from thousands of the beautiful birds lining its shores. After lunch at Lake Nakuru Lodge, depart for an afternoon game drive in Nakuru National Park before continuing to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Overnight at your lodge* on a full board basis.  (BLD)

Day 5 Lake Nakuru – Amboseli National Park

After an early breakfast continue to Lake Naivasha for a boat ride. Later, leaving the Rift Valley behind, proceed to Nairobi, collect a picnic lunch and then head south towards Amboseli arriving at your lodge by late afternoon. Then proceed with afternoon game drive in the park enroute to the Amboseli arriving in the evening.

Day 7 Amboseli – Nairobi

Following an early breakfast, you’ll catch your last views of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro as you depart Amboseli viewing game en route to the border of the park. From here turn west to the colorful border town of Namanga, where you will find some unique Maasai beadwork. Then turn north along a good tarmac road across the beautiful and seemingly never ending Athi Plains, arriving in Kenya’s bustling capital city of Nairobi by mid day.
A day room is available until your departure. (B)

 

The black markings under a cheetah’s eyes aid during the hunt. As cheetahs hunt by day, the markings absorb the reflections of sunlight much like the black paste that ball players apply to reduce glare on a sunny game day. Zebra will often group together to confuse cheetahs and other big cats because the cats have trouble identifying a single animal due to poor vision.
