Nairobi is Africa’s 4th largest city and is a vibrant and exciting place and although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief there are some fascinating attractions: its café culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably just 20 minutes from the city centre wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve.
Days 3 - 5
Located in Kenya's Great Rift Valley, Suguta Valley is hot, arid and hard to get to. Only accessible on foot or via helicopter, the valley still lures many adventure seekers to its doorstep to view its otherworldly landscapes. It is said to be one of the driest areas in Kenya. Dubbed the 'Valley of Death', its stark and desolate terrain is characterized by spectacular desert landscapes dotted with volcanic cinder cones. Visitors can look forward to a wide selection of amazing attractions including: the many flocks of flamingoes scattered across Lake Logipi, the magnificent Cathedral Rock, and the picturesque rolling desert dunes.
Days 5 - 7
Lake Naivasha, in Kenya's Nakuru County, is the highest of the Great Rift Valley Lakes and despite having no outlet, it is one of only two Rift Valley freshwater lakes. Fringed by papyrus and acacia trees, this gorgeous setting is a unique geologic landscape that supports over 450 bird species. The lake serves as the main drinking hole for wildlife in the area such as zebra, eland, hippo, waterbuck, buffalo and many more animals, allowing for some superb game viewing. Visitors can look forward to intriguing night safaris, and boating excursions around the lake as well as to beautiful Crescent Island for spectacular bird watching. Other popular activities include horse riding, village visits and tours to several impressive neighbouring national parks.
Days 7 - 10
The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Masai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, herds of elephants, as well as giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.
