Days 4-5 Lake Nakuru National Park

Head west to visit the vast Lake Nakuru National Park in the heart of the Rift Valley. Lake Nakuru is justly famous for its visiting flocks of flamingos, pelicans, terns and cormorants, but there are plenty of land-dwelling animals as well.

Days 6-7 Masai Mara National Reserve

The iconic Masai Mara is one of Africa's most famous reserves and its sweeping plains play host to buffaloes, gazelles and various other herbivores. In turn, these well-fed creatures are prey for lions, leopards, cheetahs and other stealthy predators.

Travel to the Serengeti, where golden plains stretch as far as the eye can see. Venture through the wilderness and around rocky outcrops on safari to uncover the many animals that call the Serengeti home.

At night, relax in comfort back at the lodge.
