Esta información podría cambiar dependiendo de la modalidad seleccionada


Día 1: Masai Mara National Park

Recogida: Eka Hotel, Nairobi {1}

ARRIVAL NAIROBI – MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE (280km – 5 hrs)
Make your own way to the Eka Hotel in Nairobi at 07:00 am for the safari briefing (travellers are suggested to arrive in Nairobi the day before to reach the tour on time. The safari will continue without clients that have not arrived by the departure time and additional costs incurred to arrange for the clients to meet up with the safari group will need to be borne directly by the client on the ground). Afterwards, depart Nairobi, travelling towards Kenya's fertile highlands and head down the Rift Escarpment, on a road built by Italian prisoners during World War II. Keep an eye out for the charming chapel they built at the foot of the escarpment. Pass the futuristic Longonot earth satellite station as you head across the valley to Narok, and then travel through fields of wheat and barley. Arrive at the Maasai Mara and Keekorok Lodge in time for lunch and, perhaps, a siesta. Afterwards, it’s time for the first game drive of the tour. Keekorok is strategically located in the direct path of the annual Great Migration and was the first lodge to be built in the Mara. At the height of the migration, Keekorok is surrounded by a swarming mass of hundreds of thousands of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles, all relentlessly tracked by predators. Sandstone, cedarwood, and other indigenous materials are used in all rooms and public areas. In front of the lodge, there is a 300-metre-long elevated walkway that meanders through a small riverine forest to a bar. This overlooks a dam where resident hippos and other game are regularly seen. There are no fences around Keekorok and it is not uncommon to see elephants and buffaloes on the perimeter of the grounds or even strolling in – though there are watchmen on the constant look out! Lunch and dinner included.
Overnight in Maasai Mara.


Día 2: Masai Mara National Park

MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE (5-6 hrs on game drives)
Enjoy an early breakfast before departing on a morning game drive. The Maasai Mara National Reserve is home to millions of wild animals, including the fabled Big Five of lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes, and black rhinos. There are also antelopes, gazelles and wildebeest, and many others. Return to the lodge for lunch and perhaps a siesta before setting off to visit a Maasai village followed by an afternoon game drive, heading back to the lodge as the sun sets. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
Overnight in Maasai Mara.


Día 3: Lago Nakuru

MAASAI MARA – LAKE NAKURU (315km – 6 hrs)
Bid farewell to the Maasai Mara after breakfast and travel across the ‘breadbasket’ of Kenya. Acres of wheat and barley dominate the landscape as you head north to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. Cross the vast plains on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, keeping an eye out for herds of giraffes and gazelles as you head up the Mau Escarpment, before arriving at Lake Nakuru around midday. The waters here are often coloured a shimmering pink, from the thousands of flamingos that line its shores. After lunch, depart for an afternoon game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park. As well as all the beautiful flamingos, both black and white rhinos are being carefully protected and given a new lease of life in this 188 square kilometre, fully fenced park. The rhino population numbers more than 50 and continues to multiply. The Rothschild’s giraffe is another rarity and the park has its fair share of buffaloes, leopards, zebras, elands, waterbucks and lions. Lake Nakuru Lodge is situated in the heart of what is Kenya's most densely populated wetland national park, which is one of six internationally protected marsh areas, known as Ramsar sites, in the country. Lake Nakuru Lodge is in the south-east ecological niche of the park, with commanding views of the lake and the flamingos. Lush gardens surround the lodge and cottages, and there is an exciting programme of activities and evening entertainment. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Overnight in Lake Nakuru.


Día 4:

LAKE NAKURU – DEPART NAIROBI (180km – 4 hrs)
Following an early breakfast, continue to Lake Naivasha for a boat ride. Then, leaving the Rift Valley behind, proceed to Nairobi arriving late in the morning. Once in the city, you will be dropped off at the InterContinental Hotel at 12:00 pm approx.; to continue with your individual travel arrangements. Flights to be booked 03:30 pm onwards.
