This tour combines two of Kenya’s most famous wildlife areas: Lake Nakuru in the Great Rift Valley, and the game-rich plains of the Masai Mara.

This tour combines two of Kenya’s most famous wildlife areas: alkaline Lake Nakuru in the Great Rift Valley, whose surface is often obscured by flocks of pink flamingo, and the game-rich plains of the Masai Mara. From July to September, the Mara plays host to huge herds of wildebeest and zebra, which migrate from the Serengeti down south. Yet the rest of the year still offers fabulous gameviewing as there are plenty of resident game on these plains, from lion to cheetah.

Take in spectacular views of the Great Rift Valley and pass by scenic Lake Naivasha as you travel. The park surrounding Lake Nakuru is also of interest, with populations of rhino, leopard and buffalo.

What is the climate like in Kenya?
The highland areas have a temperate climate (22°- 25°C) due to the high altitude, however  it is hotter in low-lying areas like the Rift Valley (30°- 35°C). The coast is hot and humid most of the year. Kenya has two rainy seasons, the ‘short rains’ that take place over 5-6 weeks in November and December and the ‘long rains’ that occur during March to May.

How do I get to Kenya?
Kenya’s major capital Nairobi is the main entry point into the country. Major airlines that fly into Nairobi include British Airways, Etihad Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa and Air France. From Nairobi, Kenya Airways offers flights to other popular African destinations including South Africa, Uganda, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.

Kenya is often combined with neighbouring Tanzania, and with Uganda or Rwanda for a trek to see the gorillas. A few days on the beautiful beaches of the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar is a very popular way to end a Kenyan safari.
