Your Kenya family  Safari departs Nairobi for the spectacular views found in Amboseli National Park. Here you’ll see Africa’s tallest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro – a towering backdrop to your stay. Amongst elephants, zebra, giraffe and dozens of bird species you’ll spend two nights here.

 

Lake Naivasha is up next on your tour. Set in the great rift valley, this cool, blue lake is home to hippos, zebras and bird life. Here you’ll take an easy boat safari, viewing the wildlife grazing on the shore.

Nearby Crescent Island features a walking safari where you will stroll amongst giraffes, zebras, impalas and waterbucks.

Then we’ll travel on to Hell’s Gate National Park, known for its abundant and peaceful wildlife. There are no big cats here, so we’ll have the opportunity to hike and bicycle past impalas, buffaloes, giraffes and zebras. You can’t get much closer to nature than this!

Your safari continues to Lake Nakuru National ParkDue to some progressive natural factors like increasing water levels , the flamingo numbers have been reducing  but the park itself remains  stunning – one of Kenya’s finest. Great rocky escarpments tower over acacia forest, waterfalls, wooded hills and euphorbia trees dot the lake.

The few quantity of  flamingos is accompanied by other birdlife – pelicans, cormorants, kingfishers, ostriches, storks as well as herons and eagles. The scene here is bountiful, busy and full of color.

But that’s only the beginning of what this special park has to offer because the wildlife viewing here is easy and accessible. Lake Nakuru is known for hosting some endangered but beautiful species. You’re sure to see rare Rothschild’s Giraffe along with white rhino, especially along the lakeshore.

The park is also sanctuary to one of Kenya’s largest populations of black rhino. So get your camera ready!

There are even more flamingos to be seen at Lake Bogoria National Reserve and we’ll visit there if you wish (at extra park fees of USD 50 Per Person).

But perhaps the most unique attraction at Lake Nakuru Park are the endangered black & white rhinos. During your visit here, you are guaranteed viewings of both species.

We’ve saved the biggest for last. Our final safari stop is at world-renowned Masai Mara game reserve. The Mara is a place of vast grasslands, dotted with signature acacia trees. Here you’ll find thousands of wildebeests, zebras and many other species marching across this famous plain.

There will be lots of game drives for you to spot the Big Five, plus many other wildlife, during your 4 days and 3 night stay here.

All-Inclusive. Your 8-Day Amboseli, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru & Maasai Mara safari includes park entrance fees, accommodations and meals. Natural World kenya Safaris always offers a wide choice of accommodations. Depending on your budget and style choose from economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges or tented camps.

However… please know that whatever level of accommodation you choose, your actual safari adventure with us will always be at our highest standards.
