On day 3 we first visit the Njemps, an ethnic community related to the Masai but their culture is different in that they are fishermen as well as pastoralists. Get the shivers as you see the Njemps on shallow fishing boats in a lake where every few meters there is a crocodile!!! We then take a guided walk in the open savanna.

Day 4 of our ecofriendly journey continues to the nearby Lake Bogoria, which is a salt water lake and a place to see thousands of flamingos (both lesser and greater). We will spend some time at the hot springs and then walk towards the Fig Tree campsite. The walk is in open savanna with scattered bushes and we have the chance to see the greater kudu, Thompson's and Grant's gazelles as well as zebras, monkeys and baboons.

Day 5. Ecotour in Kenya's Rift Valley: Crater Lake. O/N Sawela Lodge or equivalent

After breakfast the ecotour moves to Lake Naivasha, another fresh water lake in the Rift Valley. We arrive at the Sawela Lodge, our base for the next 3 days. The property is secluded with a manicured garden and huge fever trees that stretch down to the lake's shore.

In the afternoon we do another African game viewing walk at the nearby Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. This is a lesser lake in the Rift Valley but a place where nature is at its best.

We do a walk in the sanctuary followed by a trek on the crater rim from where we see the lake from various angles. Pleasant interruptions on the walks will be from giraffes, black and white Colobus monkeys, elands and a range of gazelles. We return to the lodge for overnight.

Day 6. Ecofriendly tour: Hell's Gate National Park. O/N Sawela Lodge or equivalent

Ecofriendly safari in Kenya

We wake up for breakfast with the sun giving a wonderful effect over the lake. An early morning here should not be missed by anyone with an eye for birds since the lake boasts a wide variety of water and woodland birds.

After breakfast we do a short transfer to the gate of Hell's Gate. This is a unique park where walking is done in the middle of wildlife. Giraffes, zebras, warthogs and many types of gazelles are found here. The first part of this walk is done in typical flat African savanna in a volcanic area with huge rock boundaries. There are camphor and acacia trees all over and this is where to look for the giraffe as they mainly feed on them. A picnic lunch, provided by the lodge, will be on a view point overlooking the Ol Njorowa Gorge.

The last part of the walk is done in the gorge by descending into a steep canyon with wild vegetation and running water from springs (both hot and cold). The climax of the day is in walking in the side gorge where the rocks have split to leave only a walking path. We climb back to the rangers post for the transfer back to the lodge.

Day 7. Kenya ecofriendly tour: Crescent Island + Market visit. O/N Sawela Lodge or equivalent

In the morning we will visit the privately owned Crescent Island, which is a peninsula on the Eastern shore of Lake Naivasha. There is a lot of easy to see game e.g. giraffes, wildebeests, waterbucks, elands, zebras and impalas. It is also a heaven for birds with +200 Kenya bird species recorded. The walk is gentle and satisfying.

Afternoon is for a visit to the colorful Naivasha town and the surroundings. Back to the lodge in the late afternoon.

Day 8. Masai Mara ecofriendly safari. O/N Mara Leisure Tented Camp / Mara Simba Lodge / Ashnil Tented Camp

Eco safari in Masai Mara

To see the best of Kenyan wildlife, Masai Mara reserve is the place to be. Elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, gazelles and all the big cats are found here. So, after breakfast we start our journey passing through Narok Town: a colorful Masai town.

Our game viewing does not actually start at the park gate. We will be able to see many animals along the way grazing side by side with the Masai livestock. We reach the camp or lodge, our home for the next three days, in time for lunch.

Day 9+10. Ecotour in Masai Mara

These are our cultural and activity days on the ecofriendly safari in Masai Mara. We do a morning game drive through the park and hike to a Masai manyatta (=homestead). Here we will see how the typical Masais live. An afternoon game drive makes the day complete.

Cape Buffalo, Masai Mara, ecofriendly safari in Kenya

On day 10 we do a morning and an afternoon game drive. We break from the driving with an optional walk in a natural area with rolling hills and grasslands, out of the park boundaries.

Day 11. Ecofriendly safari: Kiambethu Tea Farm + to Nairobi for outbound flight

Leave Masai Mara in the morning for lunch at the Kiambethu Tea Farm. This is an old colonial home established by the early settlers and the pioneers of tea growing in Kenya. There will be a talk on tea: its arrival in Kenya, the growing, processing and up to when you put it into your cup. A short walk in the tea plantation and into a small remaining part of indigenous forest completes the tour. We have a healthy farm lunch and thereafter transfer to Nairobi for the evening flight out.
