Bird Watching
Day 1
You will be met at Nairobi Airport and transferred to your hotel in this bustling city.
 
Check in and relax in your warm and friendly African surroundings.
Day 2
This morning enjoy a visit to the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. It took Daphne Sheldrick 28 years of trial and error to perfect the milk formula and complex husbandry required to rear orphaned African elephants, during the period that her husband was warden of Kenya's largest elephant sanctuary in Tsavo East National Park. Since then this sanctuary has gone on to save the lives of many orphaned elephant calves.
 
We then visit the Karen Blixen Museum for an interesting insight into early settler life, as immortalised in the film "Out of Africa" which was filmed here (lunch for own account)..
 
We also visit the Giraffe Centre that was founded to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe from extinction, before returning to Nairobi with balance of afternoon at leisure.
Day 3
Today you will be collected from your hotel in Nairobi and transferred 2-hours to Lake Naivasha, a fresh water lake in the heart of the spectacular Great Rift Valley.
 
Check into your lodge and enjoy a boat ride on the lake, with the opportunity to see hippo and over 400 different bird species. (You may be lifted onto the boat if unable to transfer)
Day 4
Today enjoy exploring beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park with  your guide.
 
A soda lake on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, at certain times of the year Lake Nakuru is home to millions of flamingos and over 400 different bird species. The sight of these flamingos in flight is quite spectacular and makes the lake appear pink from a distance.
 
With its significant population of endangered black and white rhino, Rothschild giraffe and huge throng of pelicans on its salt waters, this beautiful lake offers sanctuary for a wide variety of other wildlife - including large herds of buffalo, zebra, giraffe, monkeys, baboons, lions, thompsons gazelle, impala, ostrich and much more.
Day 5
Today transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Masai people and the Mara River that divides the park.
 
Masai Mara National Park is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest from the adjoining Serengeti National Park. This phenomenon occurs every year from July to October, when game migrates along a circular route from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again in search of fresh pastures, followed by hungry predators - most notably lions and hyena.
 
After checking into your lodge, enjoy a late afternoon game drive.
 
Note: you will be lifted into the light aircraft & into the front seat of your game viewing vehicle.
Days 6 To 7
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara National Park.
 
Nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley, Masai Mara National Park is famous for its many prides of lions, packs of hyena and other predators - as well as huge herds of wildebeest, which number over one million, zebra and giraffe. All the Big Five can be seen here, as well as numerous other species including the Thomson's gazelle, topi, kongoni, impala, roan antelope and hippo. The nocturnal bat-eared fox, rarely found elsewhere in Kenya, also inhabits this park as well as the endangered cheetah and black rhino. Bird watching is also excellent with over 450 different species including the vulture, marabou stork, secretary bird, hornbill, crowned crane, ostrich, long-crested eagle and african pygmy-falcon.
 
Set off early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view the abundant wildlife of the Masai Mara region. Return to the lodge to rest in the heat of the day, before setting off again in the late afternoon for another game drive.
