Day 2: Nairobi - Lake Naivasha

This morning will begin with a visit the to Karen Blixen Museum and the Giraffe Centre (entrance fees included) before setting off down the Rift Valley where some fantastic photo opportunity present themselves - the views from the top of the escarpment are stunning. After lunch take a walk down to the lake and see if you can spot any hippo wallowing in the waters.

Day 3: Lake Naivasha

After a good night’s sleep you will be ready for a full on day. Lake Nakuru National Park is on the itinerary for today. The park's central lake is covered almost all year round with a slight pink tinge thanks to its many resident flamingo. Lunch has been arranged at the Sarova Lion Hill Lodge which overlooks the park. A lovely way to enjoy lunch. After an afternoon game drive you will be transferred back to Naivasha in time for a lake walk before the sun starts to set on yet another action packed day.

Day 4: Lake Naivasha - Masai Mara N.P.

This morning it’s an early start as we leave for the Masai Mara National Reserve. After you have checked into your lodge and enjoyed lunch you may want to take some time to unpack and settle in. In any case we suggest you wait until the heat of the day has begun to subside until you head out on your first game drive. Back at the Lodge dinner will be served after pre-dinner drinks in the Lodge's main area. A fun way to meet other guests and discuss the day’s events.

Day 5: Masai Mara N.P.

Another fabulous day in the Masai Mara awaits as we wake early ready for an early morning game drive. Back at the Lodge breakfast will be waiting for us on our return. After breakfast a morning by the pool or relaxing with a good book awaits. Alternatively, explore the grounds with a guide, spotting the smaller animals of the Mara on foot. After lunch another game drive out in the Reserve spotting and ticking off some of those must see animals from your list is a rewarding way to spend the afternoon before returning to the lodge for dinner.

Day 6: Masai Mara N.P.

Today is your last day in the Masai Mara and after an early morning game drive an educational visit to a local Masai Village (additional cost) might be an interesting way to spend the rest of your morning.
