Nairobi – Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya

Kenya, being East Africa’s most popular safari destination, warmly welcomes visitors who have come to witness their beautiful country. The Kenyan capital of Nairobi has grown vastly in recent years, but still maintains a relatively small city centre, as well as a city market that has much to offer. It is recommended that you arrive at least a day before departure in order for you to recover from any jetlag as well as to have some time to yourself in which you will be able to relax and have a chance to see the city. Departing from the gorgeous Nairobi in the morning hours of our first day, we begin our descent into ‘the Great Rift Valley’, a gigantic fissure in the Earth’s surface that stretches from the Red Sea all the way to Madagascar. On the way, we stop at a specific lookout point to drink in the majestic views provided to us by the African landscape.

The overnight stop we take is close to Lake Nakuru National Park, abundant in fauna and flora located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. The shallow soda lake within the park is home to a wide variety of extraordinary birdlife, specifically flamingos (attracted by the abundance of algae in the lake) that, when gathered in their massive numbers, form a dazzling pink ‘fringe’ around the edges of the water. This resplendent lake also attracts wildlife such as buffalo, lion, black and white rhinoceros, leopard, warthog, baboon, antelope and a large assortment of smaller animals too. We then embark on an afternoon game drive searching for more elusive and diverse wildlife, led by local guides and in smaller safari vehicles in order to obtain a more intimate experience with African nature.
