Overview
Lake Naivasha (rough water) is a freshwater lake northwest of the capital Nairobi and it is the highest of the Rift Valley lakes which is 1884m above sea level. Freshwater shores fringed with papyrus and yellow acacias, hippos frolicking in the shallows and the cacophony of twittering birds, create a lasting impression of Lake Naivasha. Lake Naivasha has many different types of wildlife with a good portion of hippos and fish including Crayfish, Tilapia and Black bass. There are 400 species of birds of Great Cormorants, Long-tailed, Fish Eagles, Pelicans and all types of Kingfishers, as well as the Grey-backed fiscal. There are many luxury lodges doddered around Lake Naivasha. Day trips are available to Hells Gate National Park which is at the northeast edge of the lake and Joy Adamson’s Elsamere farm. She is a British naturalist and author of the international bestseller “Born Free”, which describes her trials and tribulations of raising a lion cub called Elsa to adulthood. The farmhouse was bought in 1967 and is now a conservation centre, focusing on lake ecology and creating environmental awareness.

Detailed Itinerary

Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, clients will be met and transferred to the Hotel. Remainder of the day at leisure. Nairobi’s range of restaurants offers you an exciting evening out. Overnight in Nairobi.

After breakfast, clients will be met and transferred to Naivasha. Arriving in time for lunch and the rest of the afternoon is at leisure.

An early morning start takes you onto your next destination, the spectacular Lake Nakuru. Once in the park, view game en route to the lodge. Following lunch and a siesta, there is an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge as the sun sets. The national park, known for its birdlife, offers a possibility to view flamingoes. It is also home to Black and White rhinos as well as the endangered Rothschild Giraffe.

After an early morning breakfast, drive to Narok town via Mai-Mahiu with a brief a rest stop and proceed on to Mara arriving in time for lunch at the Lodge. After lunch, depart for an afternoon game drive returning back to the lodge as the sun sets.

Today will be spent exploring the vast plains of the Masai Mara, starting early with a game drive before breakfast, and returning to the lodge for meals. This reserve is an extension of the Serengeti ecosystem to the south. Game abounds here, particularly when the migration is on, and millions of wildebeests and zebras make their way back and forth across the Mara River on their annual trek. The Mara is also noted for its abundance of lions - particularly the superb black manned males. You'll see lots of elephants here often in large herds, as well as, if you're lucky, leopard, cheetah and rhino. All of the Big Five are residents. You're sure to see the African buffalo. The huge expanse of grassland covers 320 sq km and is dotted with distinctive flat-topped acacia trees are watered by two rivers, Mara River and Talek River. It is also home to the nomadic Maasai people, who can be see grazing their cattle, usually brightly dressed in red chequered capes. Get the cameras ready, stock up on film and enjoy yourselves!

After breakfast depart the Masai Mara and head across acres of rolling wheat and barley farms to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. From here cross the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley whilst keeping an eye out for herds of giraffe and gazelle before heading up the rift escarpment. Arrive into Kenya’s bustling capital in the early afternoon. Once in the city, clients will be dropped off to Jomo Kenyatta airport for onward flight
