Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya

Day 2: Masai Mara, Kenya
We spend the day driving through nature as it was intended to be - huge plains, rolling hills and an abundance of game matched no where else on earth. We keep an eye open for the Big Five - Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard.
If travelling between July and October, we may get to witness the impressive herds of over 1 million Wildebeest, Zebra and Thomson’s Gazelle in their Annual Migration. Sitting around the camp fire, watching the sun set is the perfect way to finish a day’s game viewing in this “Garden of Eden.” Breakfast, lunch, dinner.
Day 3: Masai Mara to Kisumu, Kenya
Leaving the Masai Mara early in the morning, you pass through the scenic tea plantations of Kericho before descending the Rift Valley Plateau, on your way to Kisumu.
