The tour takes you first to the spectacular Rift Valley leading you to Lake Nakuru National park known as the ‘bird watchers paradise’. The park has recently been enlarged partly to provide the sanctuary for both the endangered black rhinos and the white rhinos. It also provides safe haven for the endangered Rothschild giraffes.

After spending a night on the floor of the Rift Valley in Lake Nakuru, the Big 5 Encounter then 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.
