4 DAYS LAKE NAKURU AND MAASAI MARA SAFARI:
DAY 1: NAIROBI – LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK
The trip will start off with an early morning departure from Nairobi, heading west towards Nakuru town. On the way, a stopover will be ideal for a photo session over the panoramic Great Rift Valley Escarpments. This offers a breath-taking view of the far-reaching savanna plains below, broken by the meek Mount Longonot in view. The voyage will then proceed to cascade down the escarpments, to the Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge, right at the heart of Lake Nakuru National Park. Arrival time is estimated to be just in time for lunch and refreshments. Guests may thereafter check in to their hotel rooms and prepare for an afternoon game drive through the park.
The park encircles Lake Nakuru, a large but shallow fresh water lake that supports a robust biota, and is a world-renowned bird haven sanctuary. Notably, it is home to the greater and lesser flamingo species, giving the shores beautiful bright pink hue. The game drive will offer a chance for game viewing, particularly endangered white rhinos, waterbucks, warthogs, hippo territories, impalas, buffalo, Rothschild giraffes and many more. The evening will conclude with a drive back to the lodge, for dinner and an overnight stay.
DAY 2: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK -MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE.
The second leg of the safari will kick off with an early morning breakfast at the lodge.

Needing little introduction, the park that straddles two countries offers fantastic and endless views and thrills as you will find out over the course of the next two days.
We will arrive and head to the Mara Sopa Lodge/ Basecamp/ Mara Leisure Camp, check in and settle in for lunch. We will the set off for an afternoon game drive around the lodge, and our highly experienced tour guides will be at hand to conduct and point out wildlife features of the park.

You will enjoy a picnic lunch by the Mara river, which gives breath-taking view of hippos, crocodiles and other water-loving animals, of course at a safe distance.After lunch you will set for an afternoon game drive with chances for a view of live action in the bush as you gaze into the vivid African sunset. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Sopa Lodge/ Basecamp/ Mara Leisure Camp.
Day 4: MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE – NAIROBI.
The last day of the safari will start off with an early morning game drive in the reserve. A major advantage of setting off at the break of dawn is that temperatures are still fairly low, thus enhanced activity in wildlife movement. This makes for optimum conditions for game viewing as the safari companions will guide. After the morning rounds you will then return to the lodge for a hearty breakfast and rejuvenation.
