Lake Nakuru is also an Ornithologist’s Paradise. It has a uniquely rewarding game-viewing venue and a sanctuary for both the Black Rhino and the endangered White Rhino. The park offers an incredible 450 different species of birds which are water, fish-eating, terrestrial and migratory birds to include Pelican, Fish Eagle, Secretary Bird, Heron, Egret, Hammerkop and Grebe.

The Maasai Mara Game Reserve adjoins Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and is reached in time for lunch. At 4pm proceed for an evening game viewing drive in search of Black Manned Lions, Elephants, Leopards, Cheetahs, Buffalos and other plains game. The sighting of Rhino and Leopard cannot be guaranteed and luck is a necessary factor as they are sparsely numbered, very shy and elusive. At 6:30pm return to the Camp for dinner and overnight.

Full day in Masai Mara

After breakfast at 0700hrs, start tracking game with your Animal Passion Tours & Safaris guide in this Reserve which borders Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park as only an artificial border separates the two.

A full day is spent game viewing across (from 0800-1600 hrs) the rich, tree studded grassland and rolling hills. This reserve is the most visited Park in Kenya and the best for game as it has an extensive road and track network, which allows excellent photography and close viewing opportunities. The famous Mara is renowned for its great herds of plains game, Black Manned Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs. It also has numerous Elephants and virtually every type of wildlife to be found in Kenya. Antelopes, Wildebeest, Zebras, and Maasai Giraffes can be seen as well as scavengers like Hyenas and Vultures. You’ll have a picnic lunch besides the Mara River as you watch Hippos and with luck Crocodiles on the River banks and return to the Camp at 4pm. After a short rest, visit a nearby Maasai village to see their nomadic lifestyle. (At an extra fee payable directly to the Maasai villagers – The Maasai are famous for their bravery, as they have co-existed with the animals over the years.)
