Our 10 Day Package begins with full on exposure to bird life. Lake Naivasha, Lake Elementaita, Lake Bogoria and Lake Nakuru are abundant with so many species of birds. A highlight, of course, being flamingos. The second part is all about the animals. The big cats; lions, leopards and cheetahs. The elephants and buffalos. Giraffes and gazelles. Are you ready to explore?
10 day itinerary
Nairobi – Naivasha
After breakfast we leave Nairobi and make our way towards Naivasha. We’ll stop off briefly at the viewing point of the majestic Great Rift Valley. There’s time for photos before proceeding on our way.
On arrival in Naivasha, we will be dropped off at the lakeside to enjoy a one and half hour boat ride around the lake. Our captain will provide bait fish to entice the mighty African Fish Eagle down from the tree tops. This freshwater lake is home to a wide variety of birds and a large population of hippo. You might even get to see the resident python lazing in the sunshine amongst the foliage.
After our boat ride, we’ll make a short drive back up the road to our lodge for lunch. Our afternoon is spent relaxing in the expansive 150 acre grounds of our accommodation. A resident giraffe, waterbuck, vervet and colobus monkeys wander around freely. Free time to enjoy!
Naivasha – Lake Bogoria
We’ll check out of this gorgeous place after breakfast with our picnic lunch and proceed directly to Lake Bogoria (150km). Lake Bogoria is a saline, alkaline lake. It’s a favourite feeding spot for masses of flamingo. 135 bird species have been recorded here and it is also home to the less common Greater Kudu.
We’ll wander along the lake edge taking in the birdlife before making our way back to Lake Elementaita in the late afternoon. There’s a pool overlooking the expanse of the lake or you may feel like a massage. Pelicans and flamingos go about their daily hustle right outside your room. Early mornings are a good time to catch the flamingos flying in. Enjoy!
Nakuru National Park
We head off after breakfast, with our picnic lunch, to do a full day game drive in Nakuru National Park. This park is renowned for having over 400 bird species. Lions and leopard live here too and hunt out buffalo and zebra. Both black and white rhino can be seen along with the Rothschild giraffe. The only park where this giraffe can be seen in the wild.
We’ll head back to Elementaita in the late afternoon so you can relax before dinner with a cold beverage overlooking the beautiful lake.
Elementaita – Maasai Mara
We’ll leave the lake shore this morning and head off to the famous Maasai Mara Reserve arriving for lunch at our lodge. It’s then chill out time before our 4pm game drive. We’ll head out into the park and see what we can find... maybe a pride of lions or a leopard eyeing up a gazelle?
As the sun dips deeper on to the horizon we’ll make our way inside the lodge grounds for our evening relaxation. There’s time for a hot shower and a cold vino before dinner before tucking up in bed to listen to the sounds of the wild. Good night!
Each day is spent full day game driving. After a hearty breakfast to keep us going, we’ll explore the wonders of this park seeking out the best wildlife sightings for you. Each day is different and we’ll explore a different area each time.
Our prime objective is to find the animals for you to enjoy. We’ll get in the best position possible for great photos without encroaching on the animals comfort and safety. We’ll make this your ultimate safari experience!
At the end of each day it’s back to the lodge to chill out and remember the magic of your discovery.
Maasai Mara – Nairobi
We bid farewell to our home for the past few days and head back to the bustle of the city. We’ll stop briefly in Narok to stretch our legs and have a comfort stop over coffee. A welcome cafe lunch ends our safari before dropping you back at your post safari accommodation.
