Overview

This tour gives you a chance to visit four different destinations in Northern Kenya which is Aberdare National Park and southern part of Kenya which consists of Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, and Masai Mara National Reserve. We start off to the Aberdare National Park which is in central Kenya located east of the East African Rift Valley. Dominated by a large number of elephants as well as black rhinos, Aberdare National Park lures those who want more than just a safari. With dense forests, 300m-high waterfalls and amazing hikes, this park is as much about the flora as it is the fauna. While trekking and game viewing, keep an eye open for bush pigs, rare black leopards, and buffaloes. Olpejeta conservancy is situated between the foothills of Mount Kenya and Aberdares ranges and is Kenya’s best-kept conservation havens towards the North of Kenya. Lake Nakuru National Park is on the floor of the Great Rift Valley and is surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland. Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for bird watching, hiking, picnic, and game drives. It 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. Rising water levels recently forced the park’s famous flamingos to flee, and the lake is now hauntingly surrounded by downed trees. Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Kenya, outside the town of Naivasha in Nakuru County, which lies northwest of Nairobi. It forms part of the Great Rift Valley together with Hell’s Gate National Park which lies to the south of Lake Naivasha in Kenya, northwest of Nairobi. Hell’s Gate National Park is named after a narrow break in the cliffs, once a tributary of a prehistoric lake that fed early humans in the Rift Valley. Masai mara is, however, the most famous and popular safari destination in Kenya, if not anywhere in Africa. The appeal of the Masai Mara and adjacent private/community conservancies isn’t difficult to explain. It’s mosaic of rolling hills, open grassland, and acacia woodland supports a quite incredible profusion and variety of wildlife. Large predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and Spotted hyena are easily seen at close quarters all year round, and the reserve truly blossoms between August and October, when the legendary wildebeest migration – perhaps the world’s most breathtaking wildlife spectacle – crosses into Kenya from Tanzania. The Big Five are all present and seen with various degrees of ease. Elephants are very common, as are buffaloes, the latter being the favored prey of the reserve’s unusually large lion prides, which often number 15 or more adults. Leopards are more elusive but quite easy to locate if you know where to look, and while numbers of black rhino dropped alarmingly in the late 20th century, up to three dozen individuals still survive. The rhino population here is the only one in Kenya that can be regarded as fully indigenous, with a gene pool (as yet) undiluted by translocated individuals of southern African or mixed origin.
