We leave Nairobi for the Aberdare, a mountain range directly north of Nairobi. The mountain is a fairyland, awesome in it’s majesty and beauty.
The highest point of this range is Ol Donyo Satima,(“the mountain of the young bull” in the Maa language of the Masai) which reaches 3998 m.
We shall leave the Aberdare in the morning for Lake Nakuru National Park and hopefully get there in time for an evening Game drive.
we shall leave Lake Nakuru after a morning game drive and head for the World famous Masai Mara reaching there in time for an evening game drive.
Everything about this wildlife is outstanding. The wildlife is abundant and varied and the gentle rolling grasslands ensure that the animals are never out of sight. Birds too are prolific.
Well over 450 species have been recorded including 57 species of birds of prey.
Mara’s foremost attraction is the hundreds of years old annual migration of the wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti in the Northern Tanzania through the Mara plains to the Kenyan border in search of fresh grazing grounds.
The herds draw raving packs of predators especially hyenas and lions, and thousands do not complete the journey. More die while trying to cross the swirling muddy waters of the Mara and Tarek rivers.
The day will be spent game viewing and in search of the big five with picnic lunches, and later return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
After a morning game drive we shall leave the Mara for Nairobi and arrive early in the afternoon where you will be dropped off at you preferred drop offs or transferred to jkia for your flight onward home.
