5 Day Aberdares Lake Nakuru Masai Mara Safari

You can enjoy their intense fuchsias bursting against Lake Nakuru’s deep blue alkaline waters. Quite simply… it has until some few years ago been the most brilliant show of birdlife on earth.

Due to some progressive natural factors, the flamingo numbers have been reducing but the park itself remains stunning – one of Kenya’s finest. Great rocky escarpments tower over acacia forest, waterfalls, wooded hills and euphorbia trees dot the lake.

The flamingos are accompanied by other birdlife – pelicans, cormorants, kingfishers, ostriches, storks as well as herons and eagles. The scene here is bountiful, busy and full of color.

But that’s only the beginning of what this special park has to offer because the wildlife viewing here is easy and accessible. Lake Nakuru is known for hosting some endangered but beautiful species.

Masai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara national reserve extends northeast from a shared border with Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. This 1,510 km2 Masai Mara is the most famous and popular safari destination in Kenya, if not anywhere in Africa.

Large predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and spotted hyena are easily seen on your Aberdares lake Nakuru Masai Mara safari at close quarters all year round. The reserve truly blossoms between August and October, when the legendary wildebeest migration. This is perhaps the world’s most breathtaking wildlife spectacle.

The Big Five are all present and seen with various degrees of ease. Elephants are very common, as are buffaloes. The latter being the favored prey of the reserve’s unusually large lion prides, which often number 15 or more adults.

Leopards are more elusive, but quite easy to locate if you know where to look, and while numbers of black rhino dropped alarmingly in the late 20th century, up to three dozen individuals still survive.

The rhino population here is the only one in Kenya that can be regarded as fully indigenous. There is a gene pool (as yet) undiluted by translocated individuals of southern African or mixed origin.

Even outside of the migration season, ungulates are well represented, too. There’s no better place for close-up views of the eland, the world’s largest antelope. They seem to be less skittish here than in most of its range.

Also likely to be seen are giraffe, impala, gazelle, topi, Coke’s hartebeest, reedbuck, Defassa waterbuck, hippo and warthog.

The Mara provides a fine introduction to East Africa’s savanna birdlife. It has more than 500 species recorded in and around its borders. They include such perennial favorites as Lilac-breasted roller, Superb starling and Little bee-eater.

Large ground birds such as ostrich, Southern ground hornbill, Kori bustard and the localized Denham’s bustard are also common.
