DAY 3 & 4
2 full days game viewing following the migration herds of gnus and zebra in the Masai Mara. An amazing spectacle of nature!
Masai Mara offers an absolutely unique variety of animals, thanks to its hilly topography, humid and fertile soil, watered by perennial Mara and Talek rivers, full of crocodiles and hippo. The banks of the rivers are covered in thick forest, which gradually makes way for bush and grassland. The abundance of water and excellent availability of food are the reasons why the Masai Mara, which in fact is a continuance of the Tanzanian Serengeti National Park, has the greatest population of wild animals in the whole of Africa. There is a particularly dramatic “spectacle” from July to November, the annual migration of huge herds of Gnus and Zebras. Predators such as Hyenas, Jackals, Leopards and Lions of course, closely follow these herds. Gigantic herds of over 200 buffaloes can also be observed. Plenty of food is available for elephants, giraffes, and the many species of antelopes.
Fullboard stay at the lodge or tented camp.

Lake Nakuru National Park, the world famous haunt for pink flamingos, is a shallow alkaline lake in Kenya’s Rift Valley and some 62 km2 in extent. The road passes down the Kikuyu escarpment with fine views of the Kedong Valley and Mounts Suswa and Longonot. The landscape is picturesque, areas of sedge, marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrop. In late 80′s the park also became Kenya’s first rhino sanctuary and is today home to both the White and Black Rhinos. Lions, leopards, hippos, giraffes, waterbucks are equally at home in this unique park.

The Great Migration season is approaching!
I travelled through Kenya and Tanzania and even though it was the season of their “long rains” a sceptic like me has fallen head over heels in love with the purity and earthiness of the wildlife.
Apart from the abundance of Lions, Cheetahs, Leopards, Topis, Gazelles, Zebras, Flamingoes, Rhinos, Hippos we saw all over the savannah grasslands of Masaai Mara and the Serengeti, we were lucky to spot the great herds of Wildebeests in southern Serengeti.
They were just about congregating after their calving season and beginning to head to the western corridor of the Serengeti after which by July-August they will begin their trek to Masaai-Mara. They are a spectacular sight! The migration has to cross the Mara River in the Maasai Mara where crocodiles prey on them. This is one of the highlights as the animals try to cross the Mara River alive. In the Maasai Mara they will be hunted, stalked, and run down by the larger carnivores. Dont miss this world famous spectacle!
Its important to be at the right lodge and the right location at the right time. I spent a lot of time talking to our partners African Quest Safaris, who guided us every step of the planning and thus we are able to give you very good inputs on where you should stay and why.
