DAY 5: SWEETWATERS / LAKE NAIVASHA

Depart from Ol Pejeta Conservancy after breakfast and drive to the lakeshore hotel in the Rift Valley, arriving in time for lunch.

Boat ride at USD 30 per person or a Visit to Crescent Island at USD 40 Per Person.

 

DAY 6: LAKE NAIVASHA / MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

After breakfast, drive to Masai Mara where you will reach your destination, by lunchtime. After lunch, enjoy some free time until 1600hrs, at which point you will start your first game drive.

Set in the heart of Africa’s great plains, the Maasai Mara boasts 1,672 square kilometers of unspoilt wilderness. It is home to the highest concentration of animals and birds anywhere on the continent.

 

DAY 7: MAASAI MARA FULL DAY EXTRAVAGANZA!

You will wake up very early and go for your early morning game drive inside Maasai Mara. The morning game drive offers you a good chance of catching some great wildlife action because the animals are usually more active when the temperatures are cooler. Return to the lodge for breakfast, then spend the rest of the morning relaxing and enjoying the facilities at the safari lodge. After lunch, you will have adequate time for a siesta, followed later by an evening game drive in the national reserve.

Alternatively, instead of a morning and afternoon game drive, you can opt for a full day game drive. In this case, you will take an early breakfast, then leave the lodge carrying parked lunch in picnic boxes. You will spend full day exploring the vast plains inhabited by a great variety of big game and plains animals.

 

DAY 8: MAASAI MARA / NAIROBI

After breakfast, you will depart Masai Mara National Park for Nairobi arriving with a drop off at your hotel or the airport, thus completing your wonderful safari with us.
