Kenya Wildlife & Water - Overland Trip
2 weeks: Nairobi to Mombasa - Nairobi (IMT-FKWW)
IntroThe dual attractions of abundant wildlife and glorious coastline ensure plenty of things to do. At Lake Nakuru we see vast numbers of buffalo as well as thousands of flamingos and pelicans, and have a chance of glimpsing the rare black rhino. Lake Naivasha is renowned for its birdlife and hippos. The rolling plains of the Masai Mara are reckoned to offer some of the best game viewing in the world. As well as abundant wildlife Kenya has a cultural side too and we take bush walks with the local Maasai tribe and learn some of their bushcraft and culture.
