Description

For those interested in real action, Nomadic Holidays and Safaris offers 10 days magical Kenya experience safari as the perfect deal for you. This Kenya safari tour package is recommended for wildlife photographers and also holiday makers interested in enjoying the countryside and discovering the diverse cultures.

The 10 days magical Kenya experience safari starts with a drive through the agriculture rich central highlands to Aberdares National Park. It is unique for its indigenous forest. The safari tour then takes you to Lake Nakuru National Park at the floor of the Great Rift Valley. Besides the park being a unique birdwatchers’ paradise, it is also home to the endangered black and white rhinos, Rothschild giraffes among other wild animals. Once you book this Kenya safari holiday with Nomadic Holidays and Safaris, you get to discover the Great Rift Valley with its unique features and land forms. You get to explore Lake Nakuru National Park, a popular Kenya safari destination due to its proximity from Nairobi.

Afterwards you proceed to the most famous Kenya safari destination, the Masai Mara National Reserve. Known for the annual wildebeest migration that takes place between end of July and October. Masai Mara is a vast savanna that provides home to a wide range of wild animals, both predators and prey, birdlife and also plant species. One has the best chance in the Masai Mara to sight the Big 5 in their natural habitat. Masai Mara National Reserve will thrill you with its abundance in wildlife concentration. The savanna plains are filled with zebras, gnus, antelopes, gazelles and herds of elephants. During the Great migration the vast plains are dotted with massive herds of wildebeests, zebras and other plains game as they continuously move to the fresh grasslands. The highlight of this 3 days Masai Mara safari is Mara river crossing as the herds of wildebeests and zebras cross the crocodile infested Mara river, some getting stuck in the rocks, others struggling in the stampedes and others being drowned by the crocodiles. Return to the Rift valley and head to lake Naivasha. Lake Naivasha is the highest lake in the Rift Valley and also one of the few fresh water lakes in the Valley.

Amboseli National Park is also one of the few Kenya Safari destinations that you can get closest to wild elephants. Besides the elephants you also get the opportunity to see Cape buffaloes, impala, lions, spotted hyenas, Masai giraffes, plain zebras and wildebeests among other African animals. There is also a host of Kenyan birds, both large and small. Amboseli has an endless underground water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro’s ice cap, which funnel into two clear water springs in the heart of the park.

The highlight of this part of the 10 days magical Kenya experience safari is the sight of the majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro that stands at 5895m. This gigantic volcano can best be viewed on a clear sky early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
