Book your 5 days Kenya highlights safari with Nomadic Holidays and Safaris and discover the unique wildlife found in Kenya. The safari takes you at the Equator where you marvel at animals only found in the northern part of Kenya, and then experiencing the usual but also unique wildlife.
This Kenya Safari holiday starts with a drive from Nairobi, the safari capital, as you drive through the agriculture central highlands heading north up to the Equator. Ol pejeta Conservancy is situated at the foothills of the Aberdares and Mount Kenya, west of Nanyuki town. Ol Pejeta conservancy is home to the Northern white rhinos and also has a sanctuary for the rescued chimpanzees, forming the major attraction. It also takes you to Lake Naivasha and on the way you get to marvel at the Thompson Falls in Nyahururu. Lake Naivasha is the highest lake in the Great Rift Valley and also one of the few fresh water lakes in the Valley.
5 days Kenya highlights safari finally takes you 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. This is always an emotional moment but part of the process of natures’ cycle.
