Departing from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi you will drive to the Lake Elementaita (approx 3hrs), a soda ash lake playing host to tens of thousands of flamingos. Located on the famous Great Rift Valley, this small but beautiful lake offers you the chance to relax or choose from a number of optional activities such as horse riding, bird viewing or a visit to the natural warm spa that flows into the lake.
Today enjoy a full day’s game drive to Lake Nakuru National park - famous for one of the greatest bird spectacles on earth, the bright pink flamingos. The actual park surrounds the lake, with 25 rhinos - the largest concentrations in the country. Other species commonly found in the area are waterbuck, Rothschild’s giraffe, giant python, plus lion and leopard. Lunch is taken in the park at a lovely picnic site overlooking the lake.

Travelling onto Masai Mara (aaprox 4hrs) - an on-route game drive through the reserve will only get you excited for the upcoming days. The lodge sits overlooking a dramatic bend on the bank of the Talek, a tributary of the Mara River.
