Explore the Great Rift Valley at length with a 5 day Masai Mara Lake Nakuru safari.

This trip promises sights unseen, from rolling hills, to wild game, apes, lakes, birds, reptiles, acacia woodlands and vast savannah landscapes.

This Masai Mara Lake Nakuru safari begins with a drive from Nairobi to Masai Mara.
