DAY 1: NAIROBI TO ABERDARE

Aberdares National Park

www.roamingafricatours.com

In the morning you driver/guide will arrive for you anywhere within the Nairobi area. We then drive north through the rich agricultural lands that crowd the lower slopes of the Aberdares Mountains, eastern wall of the Great Rift Valley, arriving at Aberdares National Park in time for lunch. The Aberdares are probably not what visitors imagine when they imagine an East African safari; nowhere in the park does one find golden plains populated by nervous gazelles, hungry cheetahs, and napping lions. One does find high mountains, dense rain forest, thickets of bamboo, rushing rivers, cascading waterfalls, abundant birdlife, rare monkeys, and the opportunity to spot elephants, leopards, and lions sipping water from a forest waterhole from a vantage-point high in the forest.

.
The best spot in the Aberdares National Park to view the abundant wildlife is from the comfort of one of the lodge. Treetops Lodge overlooks a waterhole and a salt lick to which wildlife is attracted, day and night. Elephants are frequent visitors, as are lions and hyenas. Leopards are among those that turn up overnight, and lodge rooms include bells that inform guests of the presence of visitors below, the number of rings corresponding to the species of visitor.

DAY 2: ABERDARE > NAKURU

Lake Nakuru Safari

www.roamingafricatours.com

After breakfast we travel to Lake Nakuru National Park. Here we spend a delightful day exploring the extra ordinary bird life for which Lake Nakuru is internationally renowned. This is the ultimate ornithologist’s paradise with over 450 species of birds. Apart from its thousands and sometimes millions of flamingos nesting along the shores, the surface of the shallow lake is often hard to recognize due to the continually shifting mass of pink. The number of flamingoes on the lake varies with water and food conditions and the best vantage point is from Baboon Cliff.

.
Lake Nakuru houses Kenya’s first rhino sanctuary and one of the largest concentrations of black rhinoceros in the world a large population of white rhino. The park features the picturesque Malaika Waterfalls. Also of interest is an area of 188 km around the lake fenced off as a sanctuary to protect Rothschild giraffes. Among predators are lion, leopard and large pythons hiding in the dense woodlands which may occasionally be seen crossing roads or dangling from trees. Others game include Thomson’s and Grant gazelle, the long- eared leaf-nosed bat, colobus monkey, rock hyrax, hippo, and waterbuck; Impala, striped hyena, bat-eared fox, wildcat, reedbuck and golden cat.

DAY 3: NAKURU > MASAI MARA

This remarkable day takes you to the Maasai Mara Reserve and into the domain of the Maasai, Kenya’s cattle-herding nomads determined to preserve their traditions. The Mara is magnificent, home to Kenya’s richest concentration of wildlife, and regarded by many travelers as an essential stop on any tour of Africa. When westerners think of Africa and safari, this is place they imagine – golden grassland plains pocked with acacia, wildebeests, zebras, lions, and jackals bound by together by the cycle of life and death. Three days here will only scratch at the surface of the wonders of the Mara.
