DAY 2

Nairobi to Lake Nakuru- 160

Nairobi-Nakuru- Lunch & Dinner Can you believe you are here? Without further ado, we set off by 8.30am. Driving north, we ascend the Great Rift Valley making a brief stop for photos. The Great Rift Valley was formed millions of years ago. Stretching some 5,000miles from Jordan to Mozambique, its the longest rift on Earth. In Kenya, it gave rise to many lakes that have become a habitat for diverse wildlife, one such lakes is Lake Nakuru- a soda lake. Famously Lake Nakuru attracts vast numbers of fabulously coloured pink flamingos to its shallow waters. Known all over the world for its flamingos, it's alkaline and is harboring a population of over 40 black and over 60 white rhinos, but the flamingos, of course, have always been the main attraction. At times, there may be almost 2 million flamingoes in the residence, forming a stunningly beautiful deep pink band around the edge of the lake shore. We will have our lunch in Nakuru town/ take picnic packed lunches to save time. Enjoy an afternoon game drive in the shores of Lk. Nakuru until dusk. Dinner and overnight at Golden Palace Resort | Chester Hotel- Meal Plan (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner) Read more

DAY 3

Lake Nakuru to Masai Mara- 3

After breakfast, we depart for the Masai Mara. Ascending through the Western wall of the Great Rift Valley floor, we reach arguably Kenya’s most celebrated natural attraction-The Masai Mara game reserve. A 1,500 sq. km slab of open Savannah dotted with acacia trees-the Kenyan section of the wildly beautiful Serengeti plains, teems with wildlife. Being in the Mara has been described by some authorities as ‘’ being in the New York of the natural world’’ You will spend the next 02 nights here to explore. The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures. Evening game drive is followed by dinner and overnight at our Tented Camp or Lodge Read more

2 Nights at Ol Moran Camp
DAY 4

Masai Mara

Pre game drive balloon Safari (Optional Extra Cost safari- bookable in advance $ 475 pp) ! The feeling is indescribable, crispness of the African air, chill in the wind that hits your face as your Mara hot air balloon gradually rises, smoothness in the exhale of your breath, and the excitement to see and learn more. One's physical presence can be felt on the plains of the Masai Mara when reading this. Morning and afternoon game drive/ full day game drive with picnic lunches, explore the reserves’ amazingly high concentration of game. This game reserve is Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary. Including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. Although July, August and September are the months when the Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebra, there is also resident wildlife year round.

My short visit in Zimbabwe and Botswana was spectacular. All guides were very informative and helpful. They made sure all tours went perfectly. I was totally at ease with every aspect of my tour and guides. I would not hesitate to go back again and use Tropical Vacations!

S & T B. , Germany

7-Day Victoria Falls, Chobe & Okavango Delta Safari - We had chosen this tour (or similar) the weekend before our departure - We sent several enquiries on Friday evening and we intended to fly on Tuesday. Matthew was one of the first to response to our message and he worked during the weekend to answer our numerous questions and requests (we had requested to cut off the Vic Falls part as we have other plans in the area). Finally we confirmed on Monday and off we go on Tuesday. We did not know what to expect. Everyone we met. i.e., the local agents arranged by Mathew (Mathew is based in Kenya and our destinations were Zimbabwe/ Zambia/ Botswana) were professional, patience and knowledgeable. They made sure our questions were answered and our transfers smooth. This is a good trip for us as we did not want to spend too much time in transfers and we thoroughly enjoyed Chobe (a popular National park) and Okavango Delta (we had 3 very peaceful walking safaris and mokoro ride). Accommodation recommendations were good - Chobe Safari Lodge and the Oddballs - You just have to tell Mathew your expectations and budgets and he would work it out for you even in short notice. We thank Mathew and his teams (obviously, he has good network in the continent). Highly recommended (both the tour and this agent). Read more
