Hot air balloon and traditional Maasai community’s cultural visits for a glimpse into their rich culture can also be arranged.
Masai Mara –Lake Naivasha
Depart the Mara after early breakfast and proceed towards Lake Naivasha with a brief stopover at the Maasai town of Narok. You will pass through the scenic landscapes of Mount Longonot arriving in Lake Naivasha in time for lunch.
Lake Naivasha, the name derives from the local Maasai name Nai’posha, meaning “rough water” because of the sudden storms which can arise.
The Lake has a large hippo population that sleeps during the day out in the shallow lake shores and comes out to graze when the night falls in; as giraffes wander in the acacia. At 1910m (6200f), the water is fresh and the lake is fringed with dense clumps of papyrus (ancient Egyptians once used this to make paper). Kingfishers use the papyrus as a perch, herons hide in it while searching for food.
Naivasha is yet another area popular for bird watching (over 400 species have been recorded).
The afternoon will be spent on a boat ride which later you disembark at the shores for a walk into Crescent Island among the wandering resident herbivores including Buffaloes, Thompson gazelles, wilder beasts among others.
Naivasha – Amboseli
Take an early breakfast at the lodge, then start the drive to Amboseli National Park. Check-in at accommodation and lunch. Amboseli National Park is situated due south of Nairobi, most of the park consists of a dry, ancient lake bed and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland, while in the southern area there is a number of small, rocky, volcanic hills. Around the swamps Ol Kenya, Ol Tukai, and Enkongo Narok, the vegetation is lush with yellow-barked acacias and phoenix palms. After lunch, you will have an afternoon game drive. Amboseli National Park is possibly the best wildlife area in the whole of Africa to experience elephants at close range. Less unharnessed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any Safari.
