Overview
Itinerary
Dates & Prices

This is a short, but rewarding safari! Experience the amazing game viewing in world-famous Masai Mara as well as the breathtaking sight of the Great Rift Valley as you visit Lake Nakuru.

Two nights in Nairobi feature visits to Karen Blixen's home in the suburb of Karen, where you can almost hear the words of her book come to life as you walk the grounds. Then it is on to the Giraffe Center where you will fall in love with the exquisite Rothschild giraffes as they gracefully extend their necks to take the treats you offer.

Then you are off on safari to the Masai Mara for two nights. The plains of the Mara teem with wildlife all year, so be sure to have your camera and binoculars at the ready! In addition to the big cats, you will surely see zebra, elephant, giraffe, gazelle and much more!

A night at Lake Nakuru should reveal huge quantities of flamingo aong with a wide variety of other birdlife. Special sightings here include both black and white rhino here, where they are carefully protected. And, Nakuru is one of the few places you might spot the Rothschilds giraffe in the wild.

If you have more time..what about Tanzania, the Seychelles or beyond?

Day 1  Sat Arrive Nairobi
Jambo! Welcome to Kenya. Upon arrival, you will be greeted at the airport and assisted with check-in at your hotel. Sleep well.
Eka Hotel

Day 2  Sun Nairobi | Meals: BD
You can sleep a bit late this morning and have a leisurely breakfast. Shortly after lunchtime, drive out to the suburbs of Karen to visit the former home of author, Karen von Blixen. The movie, "Out of Africa" brought Blixen's most famous novel to life and this afternoon you can wander through her home and imagine what life must have been like in Kenya in the early 1900's. Then continue to the Giraffe Center for a fun and educational encounter with the exquisite Rothschild giraffes. When the center was founded in 1979, only 120 of the Rothschild giraffe remained in Kenya - and they were on the verge of losing their "home" to a subdivision of property. Through careful breeding and reintroduction to the parks, there are about 300 Rothschild giraffes in Kenya today. In fact, you might see them again when you visit Lake Nakuru, one of the four parks in Kenya chosen to have a relocated herd. Return to your hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 3  Mon Nairobi-Masai Mara | Meals: BLD
The Masai Mara is arguably Kenya's most famous game park. As you leave the city behind and drive past the escarpment and into the Masai Mara, you will quickly see why a trip to the Masai Mara is a must on any Kenya journey. After settling into your lodge, an afternoon game drive awaits. The Masai Mara is home to the Big Five - who were so named not because of their size, but rather their value in the days of the big hunters. Lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo are all found on the plains of the Masai Mara. The keen eyes of your driver-guide will constantly scan the plains in search of these animals and much more.

Keekorok Lodge

At the southern end of 1,510 sq km Mara paradise, and right in the path of the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra, lies Keekorok Lodge. There is always plenty of activity around the waterhole but during the migration, the lodge is enveloped by the swarming mass of animals. One need hardly venture from ground to game view. From the verandah and from Kiboko Bar, there is plenty to see. One unfortunate zebra met its end right in front of the dinning room, providing supper for a pride of hungry lions, and 'live' entertainment for enthralled guests at Keekorok.

Accommodation at Keekorok Lodge is in bungalows, single story blocks, and in comfortable shaded chalets. The liberal use of cedar wood, pink and gray sand river stone, and other indigenous building materials offset the green lawns and colorful bougainvillea. After a day in the fresh air, the excitement of game spotting, a refreshing dip in the swimming pool, and the ritual of sundowners by the roaring log fire in the lounge heralds an evening full of traditional Maasai dancing, cultural or wildlife lectures and videos with yet another of those remarkable Keekorok dinners.

Day 4  Tue Masai Mara | Meals: BLD
Morning and afternoon game drives are on tap today. In addition to the Big Five, the plains of the Mara might reveal scores of antelopes like the Thomson's and Grant's gazelle, impalas, elands and Coke's hartebeests. Large herds of zebra and wildebeest also dot the plains. If you are a bird-watcher, the Mara offers more than 470 species of birds. Many of the birds are migrant birds and more than 60 species are raptors. Watch for vultures, marabou storks, hornbills, crowned cranes and the dainty lilac-breasted roller, the national bird of Kenya.

Day 5  Wed Masai Mara-Lake Nakuru | Meals: BLD
Bid farewell to the Masai Mara today as your drive takes you to into the Great Rift Valley and Lake Nakuru. Lake Nakuru is one of the soda lakes in the Rift Valley and it is probably most well known for the stunning photos of hundreds of thousands - perhaps even millions - of pink flamingoes gathered on its shores and in its waters. Lake Nakuru National Park was created around Lake Nakuru and is now one of the best places to see both black rhinos and white rhinos. And, you can also see the Rothschild giraff, if you are lucky. The lake and park attract other birdlife such as the fish eagle, goliath heron the hamerkop and the verreaux eagle. Watch for all of this and more on your afternoon game drive.

Lake Nakuru Lodge

Situated in the south east ecological niche of the Lake Nakuru National Park is the Lake Nakuru Lodge, an oasis of comfort and excellent service, with commanding views of the Lesser Flamingo dotted with the Greater Flamingo, for which Lake Nakuru is justly famous. It is another world for the visitor, one where a person easily forgets the hustle and bustle of the city. The lodge blends well with it's surroundings and the animals often browse peacefully close to the lodge and environs, much to the fascination of the visitors.

The Lake Nakuru Lodge is situated in a wonderland which lies in the heart of one of Kenya's most densely animal populated wetland National Parks (Ramsar Site), only two hours leisurely drive - on first class roads - from Nairobi, through some of the most exciting scenery to be seen anywhere in Africa. The 156 Km Nairobi-Nakuru road gives the visitor an unrivalled view of the majestic Great Rift Valley, winding through a series of Lakes and forested uplands all the way to the bustling market town of Nakuru. The views are equally impressive for the visitor who uses a charter aircraft for the 25 minute flight to the Lake Nakuru National Park airstrip situated at the Southern side of the park at the Rhino Sanctuary Headquarters - Naishi.
