Take a journey into nature in its purest by visiting Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The park is an awesome natural wonder, where Maasai warriors share the plains with hunting lions. The vast grassland plains are scattered with herds of zebra, giraffe, topi, kudu and impala. Herds of elephants and buffaloes can be seen wallowing in the swamps.
In Mara River crocodiles and hippos swim and laze by the banks unperturbed by the visitor. Maasai Mara -the Maasai country – is also host to the world’s greatest natural spectacle, the annual wildebeest migration!
Commonly referred to as an ornithological paradise, the view in Lake Nakuru National Park is simply spectacular. Here you can see the world’s biggest flamingo colony with thousands of pink birds ringing the lake. The fish-eating pelicans as well as over 450 other bird species are also found here. Furthermore, Lake Nakuru is ideal for game viewing of the rare white and the black rhino, buffaloes, waterbucks, Rothschild Giraffes, impalas and gazelles. The Park lies on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, only 2 hours northwest of Nairobi.
