Mt Kenya and Masai Mara Safari

Description

You begin this wonderful five day safari by travelling north from Nairobi through Kenya's lush farming communities. Then the landscape drops away to the west into the Great Rift Valley, creating a dramatic back-drop to your journey. The bird-watching and views around Mt Kenya and the lakes are spectacular, but what follows when you go on big game drives in the famous Masai Mara is unforgettable. This tour provides a great combination of mountain and safari and the scenery is breathtaking throughout.

Day 1
Leave Nairobi

Leave Kenya's capital city Nairobi and head north passing near Thika, which boasts the world's third largest pineapple plantation, and Karatina, with its colourful market. Your destination today is the world famous Ark safari lodge in the heart of the Abedares National Park. The Ark overlooks a salt lick and water hole providing great game viewing opportunities from the comfort of your accommodation with many different viewing decks.

Day 2
Mount Kenya - Lake Nakuru

An early morning start as you head for Nyahururu, still known to many as Thomson's Falls for its 237-foot cascade. Then travel south to spectacular Lake Nakuru. This is often coloured a shimmering flamingo pink from thousands of the beautiful birds lining its shores. Once in the park, there will be a game drive on the way to Nakuru lodge and another in the evening.

Day 3
Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara Game Reserve

After an early breakfast, drive to Narok town via Mai-Mahiu then on to the famous Masai Mara game reserve arriving in time for lunch at a lodge. After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive en route to Mara Leisure Camp arriving as the sun sets. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.

Day 4
Masai Mara Game Reserve

Today is your chance to see the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino on a series of game drives in the reserve. The first is at dawn which is a good time to see the animals before the heat of the day sets in. Plenty of time to relax at the lodge before an evening game drive gives you another chance to see the animals.

Day 5
Masai Mara Game Reserve - Nairobi

Today you leave the Masai Mara and head across acres of rolling wheat and barley farms to Narok. From here cross the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley watching out for herds of giraffe and gazelle before heading up the rift escarpment. After arrival in Kenya's bustling capital you will be dropped off at a city centre hotel or the airport for your onward flight or journey home.

Superb as always! Robin was exceptional in helping us plan and arrange the holiday. We have used DialAFlight several times for holidays to the Indian Ocean, USA and the latest Safari and Beach Holiday. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends and wouldn't use anyone else to organise our holidays in the future.
