DescriptionKenya is home to an astonishing array of wildlife and landscapes, and is a gameviewer\'s paradise. This short trip includes both the glittering lakes of the Rift Valley and the rolling savannah of the Masai Mara - made famous by the incredible yearly migration of millions of wildebeest and zebras. Kenya\'s birdlife is also amazingly rich, with four hundred species at the Rift Valley lakes alone; the rosy-pink view of the flamingo population on Lake Nakuru is particularly spectacular. We stay in only two bases to minimise travel and maximise gameviewing. Our lodge at Elementaita is an ideal place to relax after an overnight flight and to explore Lake Nakuru National Park, the best small park in East Africa with a large concentration of rhino. The Masai Mara fulfils all expectations of endless plains, steep escarpments and prolific game.Â The Sunday Times - writes about the perfect safari in Kenya (12 October 2008).
