Day 1 - Nairobi to Lake Elementaita

Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by a representative from Smile to Africa Adventure and introduced to your driver guide who will accompany you on the beginning part of your safari.

The first morning of this adventure takes you from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi city to the small but beautiful soda ash lake located in the famous Great Rift Valley, named Lake Elementaita.

Here you will have the opportunity to partake in a number of optional activities including bird watching, horse riding or a visit to the natural warm spa that flows into the lake. Sunbird Lodge, which is a newly established eco-friendly lodge, provides a comfortable environment in which to absorb this stunning area.

Day 2 - Lake Elementaita - Lake Nakuru

Today is an exciting day as you will have the opportunity to witness one of the greatest bird spectacles on earth.

Lake Nakuru National park is world famous for the sheer number of flamingos which reside there due to the abundance of algae to be found in the lake waters. Both Lesser flamingos (distinctive for being smaller and having a reddish bill) and the Greater flamingos which are larger and have a black tip to their bill make Lake Nakuru their home as well as a smaller number of pelicans.

In addition to the flamingo spectacle, Lake Nakuru National park also offers the largest concentrations of rhino (both black and white) to be found in Kenya. Other species commonly found in the area include waterbuck, Rothschild’s giraffe, giant python, with lion and leopard making the odd appearance. Lunch is enjoyed in the park at a lovely picnic site overlooking the lake. Return to Sunbird Lodge just in-time for sundowners and a well-deserved meal.

Day 3 - Lake Elementaita to Masai Mara

After breakfast you will be driven across the floor of the Great Rift Valley, the longest rift in the crust of the earth, to Masai Mara where you will arrive at Karen Blixen Camp in time for lunch. Your game drives here will be in the camps open-sided 4 x 4 land cruisers to make the most of your game viewing experience.

You will spend three nights in this natural paradise among zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, buffalo, elephant, antelope and gazelle. You may encounter prides of lion resting in the shade of acacia trees or lying low in the tall grass, in wait for their next prey. There is a good chance of spotting cheetah and if you are lucky, the shy and elusive leopard.

Dinner and overnight at Karen Blixen Camp.

Day 4 - Masai Mara safari

The Masai Mara is also home to the seasonal awe inspiring annual wildebeest migration, which has been described as `the greatest wildlife show on earth`. This breathtaking spectacle is enabled by the Mara being an extension of the renowned Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

The diversity of the Masai Mara scenery, including meandering rivers, towering escarpments and rolling grasslands, provide the perfect habitat for the abundance of game, including the Big Five, which can be found here.

Depending on the time of year, today will involve a drive down to the river or across the plains in search of the scores of wildebeest who gather here at certain times of the year, or admiring the resident game which can be found all year round.

Dinner and overnight at Karen Blixen Camp.

Day 5 - Masai Mara camping safari

This morning, there is the opportunity to rise early and experience a game viewing adventure from an entirely different perspective! A hot air balloon safari across the Masai Mara which takes off in the crisp morning air, and lasts for approximately an hour, allows for a beautifully peaceful experience floating silently high above plains, forests and rivers. Upon landing a fully cooked champagne breakfast awaits.

More game viewing opportunities arise later that morning en-route back to camp and in the afternoon. In addition to the spectacular game to be found here, there are also over 450 species of birds that have been identified in the Masai Mara Ecosystem.

Dinner and overnight at Karen Blixen Camp.
