NAKURU, BOGORIA & MASAI MARA SAFARI

TRIP SUMMARY

Your tour begins with a visit to the Lake Bogoria, backed by the bleak Siracho Escarpment, and moss-green waves roll down its rocky, barren shores. A road that becomes a rough track runs along the lake’s western shore, which is where flamingos gather. About halfway along the lake, hot springs and geysers spew boiling fluids from the earth’s insides. If you get here early in the morning, you may have the place to yourself. You can either explore on foot or bicycle.

Later we visit Lake Nakuru National Park. Also known as the land of endangered black and white rhinos. The Park also has Kenya’s largest population of rhinos. Lake Nakuru Park is ideal for bird watching, hiking, picnic and game drives. Visitors can therefore enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself. Move on to Masai Mara to feast your eyes on the magnificent wildlife.
