LAKE NAIVASHA
Say goodbye to the new friends in Amboseli and depart for Naivasha. Stop en route at the Carnivore Restaurant for lunch. Continue to Lake Naivasha arriving in the late afternoon. Rest of the day spend at leisure. For an extra cost, you may take an optional boat ride at the Crater Lake (payable direct). Lake Naivasha is the second largest freshwater lake in Kenya and one of only two freshwater lakes in the rift valley, the other being L. Baringo. Lake Naivasha is unusual in having no known outlet, normally a prerequisite for a freshwater lake! The lake edge supports dense vegetation which, in turn, supports a thriving bird population including the Grey-capped Warbler, Spectacled Weaver, Brimstone Canary and Red-billed Fire finch. All told the area has a bird list of over 350 species.

DAY 5 & 6 (Tuesday & Wednesday)
MAASAI MARA GAME RESERVE
Your journey now takes you to the Maasai Mara, Kenya’s most famous wildlife reserve. Arrive and embark on a game viewing drive before later being transferred to your camp for dinner and overnight.

The Maasai Mara is arguably Kenya’s most popular game reserve. It is most famous and most visited game reserve in Kenya. The film “Out of Africa” was made to a great extent in this sanctuary. There is a profusion of all types of wildlife including the big five. A spectacle worth seeing is the annual migration of millions of wildebeests, zebras, and the gazelles from the Serengeti plains across the Tanzania border and the Mara River to reach Maasai Mara grazing fields from late June. The game reserve abounds with birdlife since close to about four hundred and fifty two odd species have been recorded.

Spend the next day on a full day game viewing drive.
