Masai Safari

5 stars


The Masai Safari travels through some of the richest game areas in the world. Visit the dry plains of Samburu and the forested slopes of Mount Kenya, marvel at the beauty of the Great Rift Valley and see the masses of flamingos at Lake Nakuru. The grand finale is the visit to the Masai Mara, home to the greatest wildlife show on earth. This tour combines excellent opportunities for viewing the 'big five' and a chance to see the spectacular landscapes of Kenya. With the exception of Lake Nakuru, accommodation is at Serena Lodges, which are among the finest lodges in Kenya. The Masai Safari is truly the trip of a life time.
