We recommend our clients enjoy a 3 to 4 day safari after a mountain experience to explore the beauty of one of the best Kenya Game reserves in the world. You can either chose camping safaris or stay in the lodges which are located within these Game Reserves. There is no bad choice – it just depends on your budget!
Kenya Safari after the Mountain
Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara offer the best wildlife viewing for an African safari holiday. Masai Mara is a huge savanna that lies in the southwestern corner of the country bordering the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. During the trip you will be on a guided safari at Lake Nakuru and in Masai Mara, where you can enjoy the rich and varied animal and bird-life. Countless thousands of zebras, wildebeests and flamingos as well as lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, hippos, jackals, elephants, rhinos, gazelles, impala, crocodiles, vultures, Marabou storks, baboons, hyenas, and ostriches are but a few of the animals you may encounter. The list is almost infinite making a Kenya safari a truly unique experience.
Throughout Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru you have the opportunity to experience an impressive and varied range of wildlife. And watching the sun go down over the savanna in Masai Mara, Kenya after a nice day of watching lots of animals is glorious. What a way to relax after the mountains!
The best times to travel to Masai Mara for this 4-day Masai Mara Lake Nakuru safari tour
The safari tour of Masai Mara can be carried out year-round. In general, it is easier to observe wildlife in the parks during the dry season from late June to October and from January to March. The ultimate attraction is undoubtedly the annual great trek of wildebeests and zebras in July and August. In giant flocks of hundreds of thousands, they travel north from Serengeti in Tanzania across the Mara River to Kenya in search of fresh grass – in October they move in the opposite direction back to Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.
