What to Expect

Amboseli National Park is in southern Kenya. It’s known for its large elephant herds and views of immense Mount Kilimanjaro, across the border in Tanzania. Observation Hill offers panoramas of the peak and the park’s plains and swamps. Varied wildlife includes giraffes, zebras, cheetahs and hundreds of bird species. The western section is dominated by vast Lake Amboseli, which is dry outside the rainy season.

Lake Nakuru

Lake Nakuru often one of the first stops on safari itineraries for two reasons. It’s a soda lake renowned for its incredibly large flocks of flamingo which literally turn the lake pink, their numbers reaching into the hundreds of thousands. It’s said to be the ‘greatest bird spectacle in the world’. As it’s within easy reach of Nairobi and is one of the few fenced national parks, it’s a safe haven for black and white rhino because the rangers are better able to protect them from poachers. White rhino are grazers and are found on the grassy floodplains around the lake. Black rhino are browsers. They are found in the thick acacia woodlands in the southern reaches of the lake.

Wildlife is plentiful and some of the more notable species include the endemic Rothschild’s giraffe, large numbers of buffalo, waterbuck, reedbuck and other antelope and small numbers of lion and leopard. Apart from the flamingos, bird lovers should be able to spot large numbers of white pelican and a myriad of other woodland and water birds.

Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha is an ancient freshwater lake in the Great Rift Valley and is set at its highest point, 1,890 m (6,200 ft) above sea level. The outlet for this lake, Njorwa Gorge, forms the entrance to Hell’s Gate National Park which has spectacular examples of rock formations and an abundance of flora and fauna, including some extremely rare breeding pairs of Lammergeyers, also known as bearded vultures.

Lake Naivasha is home to a wide variety of wildlife including a healthy population of hippo, a variety of freshwater fish like black bass, tilapia and crayfish, and many fish-eating birds like fish eagles, pelicans, kingfishers and cormorants.

Maasai Mara

The Masai Mara reserve will tickle your thrill spot with Kenya’s richest concentration of wildlife. The lush golden grassland plains are filled with plentiful zebras, lions and wild beasts, with a real-life alacrity of on-camera safari expeditions. This acacia land brings you goosebumps with the cheerful sight of the five giants, the elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards and the wild buffaloes. Feel the intriguing sense of nomadic life with captivating day-time activities and splendid overnight stays at camps or lodges on this trip to Masai Mara Safari.

The landscape has grassy plains and rolling hills, and is crossed by the Mara and Talek rivers. The area nearby is dotted with villages (enkangs) of Maasai people.

    We arrived home last night after a fantastic holiday. We want to thank you for your immaculate planning and organization.

    The safari was super, Timothy a great guide and driver. He knew everything there was to know about the animals and was a real professional in his job.

    Lamu, the small Arab town with its narrow streets and donkeys was out of this world.

    All your drivers drove well and safe and were always on time. Everything went smoothly and everything connected well. Everybody working for you was giving themselves 100% to make our holiday a success.

    I congratulate you with your company and staff and can recommend you to everybody who wants to go to Kenya.If ever you need recommendations, you can give them my email-address.

    Once again, thank you for a fantastic holiday, that was individual, but without us having to worry about anything at all.

    Kind regards,

    Sylvia van den Berg
