Big Game Safari at Great Rift Valley | Nairobi, Kenya
Starts: Thursday, 30 June, 2016 04:00am
Ends: Saturday, 2 July, 2016 05:00pm
This year, last weekend of Ramadan gives an amazing opportunity to take a sneak peak into Great Migration nearby Nairobi in Kenya. We have combined several parks nearby into the safari weekend program in a way we will need to take only one day off - Thursday. We are planning to see all Big 5 Games in action: hippos, giraffes, zebras, lions, elephants but in fact there will be many more.
This short but extremely rewarding plan will also cover the Great Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru and encounter Masai Warriors tribes. So much of exploration just over the weekend!
Here we go:
Day 1 / Thursday Nairobi to Elementita
After Immigration clearance we will travel across the vast plains across the Rift Valley, keeping an eye out for herds of giraffe and gazelle as we head up the Mai -Mahiu, before arriving at our lodge at Lake Elementaita. There will be the opportunity for a game drive with a large variety of wildlife in the National Park before returning to your lodge as the sun sets.
Overnight at Sentrim Elementaita
is located on the shores of flamingos/pelicans fringed Lake Elementaita, which is situated about 120 Kilometers from Nairobi. If you are a bird lover and in search of African safari lodges, then the country lodge is the perfect place for you to experience one of the world’s largest ornithological spectacles.
Day 2 / Friday Lake Nakuru
Following breakfast, we will depart on a full day of game viewing in the national park, known for its birdlife, offers a possibility to view flamingoes. It is also home to Black and White Rhinos as well as the endangered Rothschild Giraffe.
We will also have the opportunity to visit a Masai village to interact with the tribe and get an understanding of their daily lives and rituals.
Day 3 / Saturday Lake Elementaita to Nairobi
Following an early breakfast, continue to Lake Naivasha for a boat ride on the river where we will get the chance to see a wide variety of acquatic animals. Leaving the Rift Valley behind, we will proceed to Nairobi to catch a flight back home.
