Day 4. Adventure Vacations in Kenya : Crater Lake. O/N Sawela Lodge

An early rising will ensure that one gets another magical display of the various birds. After breakfast we do a short transfer by car to the nearby Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. It 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.


Day 5. Kenya Adventure Vacation: Visit Lake Nakuru National Park. O/N Sunbird Lodge, Elementaita

Women walking safaris in Kenya, Africa

The nearby Lake Nakuru National Park is the oldest park of Kenya. It's not only known for its thousands of flamingos but also for the vast herds of buffaloes, tens of rhinos and cats like leopard and lion. Of the big five only the elephant is missing. We do a game drive around the lake and have lunch at a viewpoint over the lake that is hardly visited by tourists.

Afternoon transfer to the Sunbird Lodge where we'll stay for 2 nights. This small and luxurious lodge is built on a cliff overlooking Lake Elementaita and all the surrounding hills. The panorama is unmatched. Sunbird is not just a place to overnight, it's a place for total relaxation.


Day 6. Walking Adventure Vacation: Lake Elementaita. O/N Sunbird Lodge

Elementaita may not have the big name of Lake Nakuru but its scenic beauty is unmatched. A short descent takes us to the shores of the alkaline lake. From there we proceed up to the yellow fever tree forest, a haven for bird watchers.

We walk mainly in open savanna land and occasionally we will stop for a chat with a Masai herdsman. The gentle sloping hills give a good panorama. The walk should be for 4 hrs after which we go back to the lodge in time for lunch.

Afternoon is spent in the lodge or with an optional visit to the nearby Kariandusi prehistoric site, a site first discovered by Louis Leakey.


Day 7. Walking Adventure Vacation: to Maasai Mara. O/N Mara Leisure Tented Camp / Mara Simba Lodge

We now take a break from walking to put all our attention to watching wildlife. To see the best of Kenyan wildlife, Maasai Mara is the place to be. Elephants, rhinos, 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 tented camp or lodge, our home for the next three days, in time for lunch.

Day 8+9: Maasai Mara. O/N Mara Leisure Tented Camp / Mara Simba Lodge

Sub-saharan safari, zebras in Maasai Mara


These are our cultural and activity days in Maasai 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.

On day 9 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 10: Kiambethu Tea Farm + to Nairobi for outbound flight

Our hiking adventure vacation ends with a 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 hike 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.

Itinerary changes may be made due to local conditions beyond our control.


PRICE: Our attractive price based on the size of your party includes all accommodation as per itinerary, all meals from breakfast of day 2 through lunch of day 10, all transport Nairobi-Nairobi and airport transfers, bottled water during the walks, services of guides, the park entrance fees and a Flying Doctors Evacuation cover.

The only extras on you are spendings on airfare to Kenya, airport taxes, visa, insurance, drinks, tips and expenditure of personal nature.
