This is a 5 day undisputed Kenya’s highlight and very popular safari to incredible wildlife sanctuaries; Maasai Mara Game Reserve and Lake Nakuru National Park- spectacular animal parks with epic landscapes and exciting safari activities. It starts with the Maasai Mara – Kenya’s finest and most outstanding wildlife haven where gentle rolling grassland ensures easy game viewing. The park has great breath taking sceneries coupled with the sensation of the great wildebeest migration between July and October every year. The safari then proceeds to Lake Nakuru National Park which is dominated by a gentle rolling terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation and famous for the 1.5 million-strong population of Lesser Flamingo and a sanctuary for black and white rhinos among other wildlife.  This safari is highly recommended for wildlife, nature & birding enthusiasts with limited time for travel.
