The trip leader will meet you in Nairobi. The Great Rift Valley awaits you on your way from Nairobi to Lake Naivasha. We sleep at the safari lodge after a fantastic lunch. Lake Naivasha has two family-friendly lodges where you'll stay. We often stay at the resort on huge grounds near the lake, where giraffes, waterbucks, monkeys, and hippos eat on the grass at night. Our resort is quite large and offers many family-friendly activities.
We tour Lake Naivasha and Hell's Gate National Park on day two. The Rift Valley's highest lake, Naivasha, is a freshwater beauty with grassy borders. Between October and March, Lake Naivasha's wetland attracts many migratory and resident birds. In addition to birds, the lake region has hippos, buffalo, zebra, eland, impala, waterbuck, and other grazers. Lake Naivasha is a great spot to visit Crescent Island, the Ol Karia Geothermal Power Plant, and Born Free author Joy Adamson's home, Elsamere.
Hell's Gate National Park adjoins Lake Naivasha. Hell's Gate is safe for walking and biking because there are no major predators. The region's diverse wildlife and distinct topography make for thrilling hikes.
Accommodation: Lodge at Lake Naivasha
The Nakuru hotel where you are staying will provide complimentary transfers to and from the tour's meeting site. Paying off debts should be your top priority. A safari briefing will be given before we go on the breathtaking journey across the Great Rift Valley to Masai Mara. All year long, the Big Five—lions, elephants, leopards, buffalo, and rhinoceroses—congregate on the Serengeti plains in preparation for the Great Wildebeest Migration.
We'll have a leisurely lunch in camp and then get ready to leave for our afternoon safari. The Mara Game Reserve in Kenya is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. It's easy to witness an abundance of huge beasts. Several thousands of wildebeest, impala, zebra, topi, thomson's, and grants gazelles all call this park home.
We'll be having lunch and then on a safari. You have finally reached the Africa of your imagination, complete with acacia trees and exotic wildlife. It is possible to spend just one day on safari in Kenya's Maasai Mara. Two safaris have been planned for us: one in the morning from 6:15 am to 9 am (before breakfast) and another in the afternoon from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm (after lunch). Full-day game drives with a picnic lunch are included at no extra charge, however accommodating a large group might be challenging. An overnight stay at the resort is highly suggested.
Accommodation: Mara Sopa Lodge, Mara Leisure Tent Camp, or a comparable establishment for dinner and overnight.
You plan to eat breakfast first thing in the morning. Following that, you'll travel to Kisumu in order to reach Lake Victoria. Traveling through Kisumu city, you can stop at a few attractions before reaching the lake. First thing you'll do when you get there is check out the Kisumu Impala Sanctuary, which is home to beautiful vistas and a plethora of animals. After seeing the sanctuary, we will arrange a trip to the nearby Dunga fishing town, a community that relies solely on Lake Victoria for its economy and way of life. Here, we will get the chance to learn about the community's rich history, values, traditions, and beliefs. Around nightfall, we'll wrap up our day and return to the hotel.
Lake Victoria also is the main destination for tomorrow's meal and overnight stay. In terms of surface area, it surpasses all others as the largest Tropical Lake on the planet and the largest lake in Africa. The Nile River is the world's longest river, and its waters flow from Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania before emptying into it. Places on the lake are great because they offer picturesque vistas of the sun setting and rising, as well as peaceful opportunities for boat rides on waters that stretch far into the distance. Even though the water hyacinth has had a major impact on Lake Victoria, it is still one of Africa's most beautiful lakes and can be viewed from many other nations. We enjoy dinner and spend the night in our lodgings after a full day of adventures.
Accommodation: Acacia Premier Hotel (HB)
After breakfast today, you'll be picked up by your guide and driven to Kakamega. The trip is the highlight of your life because of the breathtaking views of nature you get to enjoy along the route. Kakamega is a rare (and quickly disappearing) example of East African tropical rainforest. The twisting, narrow trails usually lead to a very lovely and peaceful setting. There are screeches and mutterings from a wide variety of African animals, and the place is overrun with tangled vines and intertwined branches as well as an abundance of beautiful plants, including some exquisite orchids. The fantastic (mainly self-taught) guides have an astounding command of the Latin names of the local flora and wildlife. In the dense undergrowth of the forest, elusive animals like the grey duiker, bushpig, porcupine, and clawless otter can be difficult to spot. Yet, monkeys and baboons roaring through the treetops and clouds of butterflies have always accompanied the strolls. There are more than 300 different species of birds, including hornbills, woodpeckers, honeyguides, turacos, and parrots. This is not the easiest place to get to, as it rains or mists frequently, but it is excellent walking country. So, the park will provide you with a picturesque wildlife experience over the course of two days. In the afternoon of the second day you will depart for Lake Baringo since it is a long drive.
Accommodation: Hellenis Guest House
Around 7:30, we'll eat breakfast and then head to the park. Took in some wildlife in the park first thing in the morning. 56 As the second-most northern of the Rift Valley lakes, Lake Baringo is around 130 square kilometers (50 square miles) in size and sits at an elevation of roughly 970 meters) (3,180 ft). The park is noted for its lake, which is one of two freshwater lakes in Kenya's Rift Valley (the other being Lake Naivasha), as well as its Goliath heronry on a rocky islet in the lake nicknamed as "Gibraltar," and its over 470 recorded bird species, some of which are migratory flamingos. Several small islands can be found in the lake, with the largest being Ol Kokwe Island, an extinct volcanic center related to the Korosi volcano to the north of the lake that has several hot springs and fumaroles, some of which have precipitated sulphur deposits, and is home to a wide variety of fauna, including hippos and Nile crocodiles.
Get a ride to your Baringo resort or camp, where you can relax and have lunch. Spending the afternoon doing whatever we choose. The Lake Baringo Reptile Park, Tugen Hills, Kabarnet Museum, Kikojo Falls, Rondinin, Kipngochoch Cliffs, and the Chebloch Gorge are just some of the nearby attractions that can be visited (excluding the Park/Museum entry fees/charges), along with a scenic one-hour boat ride along the lakeshore (at a supplement), a guided nature/bird walk (at a supplement), and a visit to the Lake Baringo natural hot spring (at a supplement). Nighttime game drives across the park, accompanied by sundowners and the gorgeous sunsets of Baringo. Go back to the Baringo lodge or camp. At the lodge, we ate dinner and stayed the night.
Accommodation: Lake Baringo Island Camp/ Samatian Island Lodge
We will pack up and leave the hotel in the morning. While on the way to Lake Nakuru National Park, we'll stop for lunch. In the afternoon, we arrive at Lake Nakuru Park and enjoy a spectacular game drive in this small wildlife preserve. The trip here will take two days
There are over 400 different bird species in this Kenyan game park, earning it a well-deserved reputation as an ornithologist's paradise. The Great White Pelican, African Spoonbill, Yellow-billed Stork, Lesser and Greater Flamingos, and Long-crested Eagle are just few of the bird species that may be found here.
The area around the lake is protected by the Nakuru National Park, which was originally established to safeguard the area's diverse bird population and later expanded to include a safe haven for critically endangered animals like the black rhino. Over 25 white and black rhinos call this area home, making it one of the densest populations in the country. Rothschild's giraffes have been relocated here for protection from the park's resident predators. Warthogs, baboons, waterbuck, buffaloes, reedbucks, zebras, and even a leopard have been spotted in this little park (180 sq km). After a day of game viewing and bird watching by the lake, we return to our cozy lodge in the national park for dinner and a peaceful evening.
Accommodation; Lake Nakuru Lodge
