Description

Lake Bogoria has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. At the base of the Rift Valley escarpment, the route passes alongside a lake. Loburu Hot Springs is a fascinating monument that serves as a reminder of the area’s tectonic activity, which formed the Rift Valley. The route ascends to overlooks where the spectacular panorama may be seen in greater detail.

Because of its tropical position, Lake Bogoria has consistently warm temperatures. It does become colder further up the cliff, but tourists are not permitted.

Day 2: Masai Mara National Reserve
Spend the entire day exploring this world-famous game reserve with packed picnic lunch. This reserve is not only the most popular game reserve in the country, it is probably why people visit Kenya. The reserve is set on a classic African Savannah and the huge density of wildlife is astounding. Zebras, wildebeest, and gazelles graze in large herds and as a matter of fact where prey is in plenty so are the predators. The reserve covers an area of approximately 1510 sq km of open grassland waters by the Mara River and Talek which is a tributary of the former. Here it is very common to see the big cats hunting; they are also in their numbers. The leopard is the hardest spot of the famous Big Five, but in Mara, it is not as hard to see it relaxing on a tree. Hippos, buffaloes, elephants, giraffes also exist in large numbers. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
