Nairobi - Aberdare National Park - Lake Nakuru National Park - Masai Mara National Reserve 6 Days / 5 Nights

<Nairobi>

Nairobi is Africa’s 4th largest city and is a vibrant and exciting place and although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief there are some fascinating attractions: its café culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably just 20 minutes from the city centre wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve.

<Aberdare National Park>

The Aberdare National Park was created to protect the forested slopes and moors of the Aberdare Mountains, the peaks of which soar to 3930m and deep valleys are home to cascading streams and rivers. The park has elephant, lion, rhino, black leopard and the very elusive bongo antelope that lives in the high bamboo forest.  The highlands are ideal for hiking and the environment so like a moorland one could be forgiven for thinking that you had temporarily left Africa.

<Lake Nakuru National Park>

Lake Nakuru National Park was created to protect the Lake and its flocks of Lesser Flamingo which are drawn to the algae that flourishes in the saline waters of the soda lake.  The national park is home to hippos, black and white rhino, Rothschild giraffe, buffalo and eland.

<Masai Mara National Reserve>

The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park.  The image of acacia trees on an endless grass plain epitomises Africa for many, and then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further.

As described in the book, Haven Under the Hill, Monty Brown says, "In this intimate recess one can almost, but not quite, pat the animals, hear their sounds and smell the aroma of the night. This is a magical corner, where there is close contact with the essence that tells of unexplored Africa, and where, very often, the visitor may enjoy in solitary state the beauty of it all."
So as not to miss any animal sightings, the resident guide will buzz your room when special animals come to the waterhole. Simply throw on your provided robe and slippers, grab your camera and view nightlife at the waterhole!
