This one-week offer takes you through Kenya’s most popular game viewing locations. The tour starts you off to Samburu, a wildlife haven with a scenic semi-arid landscape. Then to the Aberdares where you find icy rivers, spectacular waterfalls and rain forests. Here elephants, buffalos and other animals visit you at the floodlit waterholes of The Ark.

 

On to Lake Nakuru whose claim to fame is anchored on its flamingo’s and the over 400 species of birds found here. This soda lake on the floor of the rift valley is host to millions of flamingos and an important refuge for endangered species- particularly the Rothschild Giraffe and the black and white rhino.

The tour rounds you off at Maasai Mara, Kenya’s most famous and finest game sanctuary and the site of one of the most spectacular phenomenon of the natural world -the Great Annual Wildebeest Migration. Feted as one of the ’New Seven Wonders of the World’, the Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe.

You will easily see the Big Five- lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard, and elephant, not to mention numerous plain animals. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna. The famous Maasai tribesmen live within the dispersal area of the game reserve.
