The 5 Days Great Rift Valley and Masai Mara safari is one of the great tours from Nairobi. This safari features the scenic Great Rift valley and takes you to Naivasha and Lake Nakuru . Lake Nakuru is among Kenya’s finest National parks. Flanked by rocky escarpments, pockets of acacia forest and at least one waterfall, the park is gorgeous year-round and is home to both black and white rhinos, lions, leopards, hippos and endangered Rothschild’s giraffes. You will have an opportunity to see the flamingos in Lake Nakuru and plenty of bird viewing.
Masai Mara is the most famous National Reserve in Kenya, with its open rolling grasslands and abundance of wildlife renowned for its good game viewing. It sustains all of the “Big Five” – elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard as well as an astonishing wealth of other game. Often a whole range of different species is in view at one time. Each year, usually in June/October the Mara is host to millions of wildebeest who migrate north from Serengeti. The marvelous wide open views and interplay of light and shadow are themselves worth a visit to the Mara.
You will marvel at the African wilderness in this 5 Days Luxury Safari Great Rift Valley Masai Mara safari.
