Day 1: Nairobi to Lake Nakuru
You will be met by our safari representative either at your hotel in Nairobi or at airport and after a short briefing you will embark on 3 hrs. Drive towards Lake Naivasha, the name derives from the local Maasai name Nai’posha, meaning “rough water” because of the sudden storms which can arise.

Nakuru National Park situated on the floor of the Great Rift Valley and is embodied by forested and bushy savannah. The lake lies 150kms northwest of Nairobi in Nakuru County surrounded by wooded bushy grassland, the lake offers a variety of activities from afternoon game drives, and you will view the millions of pink flamingos that color the lake pink.

The instinct-led migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara starting on set month of July until October Mara, is the highlight of this safari. The animals have to outrun the predators on the way making it even more magnificent.
