KENYA: 6 Nights / 7 Days
Day 01: Arrival Nairobi - Lake Nakuru National Park
Arrive at the JKIA where you will meet by our representative with flower garlands in the typical warm African hospitality. You will then be transferred to Lake Nakuru National Park. Lake Nakuru is one of the alkaline Rift Valley lakes and a fantastic bird sanctuary, its shores populated at times by more than one million flamingoes. The famous ornithologist Roger Tory Peterson defined it as "the greatest bird spectacle on earth". The fortunate sentence has now become a cliché and is used up to fed-up-ism for promotional purposes. This is the second most accessible park, since Nakuru is the fourth city in the country and the head town of the Rift Valley. Hence the park receives a high visitor number, more than 100,000 every year, of which a great proportion corresponds to Kenyan citizens and residents. Arrival at Sarova Lionhill Lodge in time for lunch. Afternoon at Leisure. Enjoy an evening game drive Return to Lodge for dinner and overnight.
