In this area you will visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Trust, the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in East Africa. Later on go to the nearby Giraffe Centre.

Day 3: Nairobi – Lake Nakuru National Park
After an early breakfast you depart from Nairobi heading to the Lake Nakuru National Park (approx. 3hrs driving). Start exploring the wooded and bushy grassland of the beautiful park. The lake was known for its many flamingos but because of the high-water level) most are currently diverted to other lakes. However, still there are approx. 400 other species of birds visiting the lake. Also, many species of game can be found in the park including the introduced Rothschild’s giraffe, black and white rhino, waterbuck, reedbuck, lion, buffalo, leopard, baboon and many species of plains game. In the afternoon proceed to the Pelican Lodge situated along the shores of Lake Elementaita.

Day 4: Lake Elementaita – Lake Naivasha
Leave the lodge mid-morning and enjoy a scenic route (with views of Mount Longonot) to the nearby Lake Naivasha. This fresh water lake is one of the Great Rift Valley’s jewels, reflecting the tranquil beauty of an African sky and the surrounding mountains. Arrive for lunch followed by a 1-hour boat ride on the lake. This a good way to explore the lake with unique chances of seeing hippos and different species of birds.

Leave the camp from where the next stop is in Narok town; the main trading town for Narok County and also your last town before getting into renowned Masai Mara eco system. Game drive en-route to the camp where you arrive in time for lunch.

Visit a local Masai village (Manyatta) where you will spend time with the Masai gaining an insight into their lives and their culture.
