Travel on a multi-city journey through Kenya for wildlife viewing and game drives in Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara National Park.
About Your Trip
The coral reefs of the Indian Ocean, the wildebeest pastures of the Maasai Mara, the ice-rimmed crags of Africa’s second-highest peak: Kenya lays claim to an amazingly varied spectrum of landscapes. The human diversity is just as enthralling, whether you’re wandering the mosques of the Swahili Coast, the fishing villages of Lake Turkana or the heart of downtown Nairobi.
Revel in Kenya’s splendor on this unbeatable DreamTrip. You’ll journey from the capital of Nairobi to Lake Nakuru National Park — famous for its gigantic flocks of flamingos — and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, linked to Tanzania’s Serengeti plains by the massive migration conducted by millions of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles. At the Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge and Mara Leisure Camp, you’ll enjoy morning and afternoon game drives to soak up the ecological wonders of both sites — not to mention wildlife viewing from the resort grounds themselves.
