  • Through The Rift Valley Sentrim
  • (#11232)

This is a short but extremely rewarding safari as it allows visitors to gain a firsthand experience of the Great Rift Valley and the vast game-rich plains of the Masai Mara. The Rift Valley lakes are famous for their abundance of flamingos and other waterfowl, while Masai Mara is home to the country’s greatest concentration of wildlife.

This program now operates with a Pre night in Nairobi, followed by lunch on the last day and departure transfer as standard.
