5 Day Road Safari

Highlights: The Big 5 in a short period of time. Prices start at $1285.

Through the Rift Valley is a great choice for the traveler who wants great game viewing before continuing on to relax on the beaches that line the Kenya coast. The shimmering waters of Lake Nakuru may offer great
opportunities to experience a sea of pink when the lesser flamingos visit. There is a bountiful population of resident wildlife in Lake Nakuru National Park as well. Masai Mara National Reserve is of course the must visit
destination when in Kenya. Your two days here are filled with game viewing and excitement.

Day 2 Masai Mara National Reserve

Leaving Nairobi after breakfast, you’ll travel towards Kenya’s fertile highlands and head down the Rift Escarpment on a road built by Italian prisoners of war during World War II. 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

Early morning and afternoon game drives.  Optional Balloon Safari available.
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 – Nairobi

After an early breakfast you will leave the Rift Valley behind, continuing towards Lake Naivasha for a boat ride before proceeding to Nairobi arriving late morning.   Lunch and a day room are here for you before the evening transfer to the airport. 
Day room at your hotel* on a half board basis.  (BL)

Please Note: Five Star package is operated in reverse starting with Lake Nakuru.

It is estimated that the population of lesser flamingo in East Africa is nearly two million. These birds are generally found at lakes with high alkaline (soda) content because their diet is mainly on algae and shrimp found in these lakes.  The pink pigmentation of their feathers is not from the shrimp as many say, but from bacteria in the algae.
