After breakfast, drive to Lake Nakuru, arriving in time for lunch, followed by an afternoon game drive. The park is a haven for bird lovers, with over 400 species of bird – although be aware that the number of birds here fluctuates dependent on water level, so it’s best to check with the park if this is your primary reason for visiting.

Day 4

Lake Nakuru to Maasai Mara

After an early breakfast, drive to the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
The most famous reserve in the world, the Maasai Mara is what safari dreams are made of – rolling grasslands and wide open savannah, rich in African wildlife. Here is the place to witness the incredible annual wildebeest migration between July and October as over a million animals thunder across the plains in search of water and grazing – but the Mara has mass appeal all year round. Spot lions basking in the shade or seek out an elusive solo leopard. Approx. journey time: 7 hours.

Stay: Mara Engai Lodge (or similar)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5

Maasai Mara

A full day in the Mara awaits, with the option of a pre-bookable hot-air balloon ride this morning.

Take flight and drift upwards as the sun rises for an entirely different perspective of the Mara, when the bright pink-orange haze is visible for miles across the vast savannah and wildlife becomes distinguishable from their silhouette forms below.
Afterwards, you’ll head out on morning and afternoon game drives. The reserve offers fantastic chances of seeing the Big Five – and even better opportunities for viewing big cats. Other wildlife to spot includes elephant, giraffe, hyena, impala, wildebeest and buffalo.

Stay: Mara Engai Lodge (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
