From the flamingo-filled shores of Lake Nakuru, to the crocodile-infested banks of Lake Edward and right down the rapids of the River Nile, this package is the ultimate tour of East Africa’s spectacular fresh water lakes. While taking pauses to walk amongst a thriving rhino population and to marvel at Uganda’s spectacular mountain gorillas while listening to the calls of hundreds of bird species, few safaris will better combine serenity, tranquility and thoughtful wildlife interactions.
Lake Nakuru – Jump Right into Kenya on Adventures
Today you will arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport where you will be welcomed by rising temperatures and a local representative. Wasting no time at all, we will transfer you out of the city and into the bush, arriving two hours later on the stunning and tranquil shores of Lake Nakuru National Park.
Reaching the park in the midafternoon, you will have time to take a safari as the sun sets over the landscape as the bush livens. This the Rift Valley region revolves around Lake Nakuru, which occupies nearly a third of the entire park. The shores of this alkaline lake are typically so covered by greater and lesser flamingos that the blue shoreline becomes unrecognizable amidst the sea of pink. Pelicans provide small reliefs of white in this cotton candy landscape, with up to 450 other species of birds flying overhead. The lake truly is a birder’s paradise. Trucks at Lake Nakuru drive near the shores, and visitors are able to leave the vehicle to approach the lake edge on foot. This allows you to immerse yourself in this spectacular avian display while the sky transforms with the sunset.
