4 Days / 3 Nights Trip to Kenya

Through the Rift Valley, Sentrim Lodges

Nothing compares to thrill of seeing Africa's iconic safari animals up close. Come face to face with lions, elephants, and more, and experience untamed Africa at its best during the Great Migration.
An African safari touches something deep within all of us, for it is an experience that will never be forgotten. This four-day adventure takes you through the Great Rift Valley and the vast game-rich plains of the Maasai Mara, covering one national reserve and one national park. The Rift Valley lakes are famous for their abundance of flamingos and other waterfowl, while Maasai Mara is home to the country’s greatest concentration of wildlife. The driver-guides are all skilled experts and will certainly make this safari feel special while the accommodation has been specifically chosen to enhance your experience.

Itinerary

ARRIVAL NAIROBI – MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE (280km – 5 hrs)

Make your way to the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel at 07:00 am for the safari briefing (Travellers are suggested to arrive in Nairobi the day before to reach the tour on time. The safari will continue without clients that have not arrived by the departure time and additional costs incurred to arrange for the clients to meet up with the safari group will need to be borne directly by the client on the ground). After, depart Nairobi, travelling towards Kenya’s fertile highlands and head down the Rift Escarpment on a road built by Italian prisoners during World War II. Keep an eye out for the charming chapel at the foot of the escarpment. Pass the futuristic Longonot earth satellite station as you head across the valley to Narok, and then travel through beautiful fields of wheat and barley. Reach Maasai Mara and Sentrim Mara Camp in time for lunch. Afterwards, it’s time for the first game drive of the tour, returning to the lodge at sunset. Sentrim Mara Camp, located only three kilometres from the Sekenani gate, makes the perfect base for an authentic safari experience. The rustic-style tents are spread out in serene surroundings amongst acacia trees and have modern en-suite bathrooms, hot showers, and an elevated private balcony for spectacular views of the sunsets and the hills filled with wildlife. The spacious tents make your stay comfortable and the pool offers wonderful views. In the evening, wrap the day up with dinner at the camp. 

Overnight in Maasai Mara.

  Hotel:  None

MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE (5-6 hrs on game drives)

Enjoy an early breakfast before departing on a morning game drive. The Maasai Mara National Reserve is home to millions of wild animals, including the fabled Big Five of lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes and black rhinos. There are also antelopes, gazelles, wildebeest, and many others. Return to the lodge for lunch and perhaps a siesta before setting off for an afternoon game drive and a visit to a Maasai village. Return to the lodge as the sun sets, for dinner. 

Overnight in Maasai Mara.



  Hotel:  None

MAASAI MARA – LAKE NAKURU – LAKE ELEMENTAITA (210km – 4 hrs) 

Bid farewell to Maasai Mara after breakfast and travel across the ‘breadbasket’ of Kenya. Wheat and barley plantations dominate the landscape as you head north to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. Cross the vast plains on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, keeping an eye out for herds of giraffes and gazelles as you head up the Mau Escarpment. Arrive at your lodge at Lake Elementaita around midday. After lunch, depart for an afternoon game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park, whose waters are often coloured a shimmering pink from the thousands of flamingos that line its shores. Like all the beautiful flamingos, both black and white rhinos are being carefully protected and given a new lease of life in this fully fenced 188 square kilometre park. The rhino population numbers more than 50 and continues to grow. The Rothschild’s giraffe is another rarity and the park has its fair share of buffaloes, leopards, zebras, elands, waterbucks, and lions. Sentrim Elementaita Lodge is located on the shores of flamingo and pelican-fringed Lake Elementaita. The lodge overlooks this beautiful lake and its surrounding national park, being a paradise for bird-watchers and wildlife lovers alike. In the evening, dinner will be served at the lodge. 

Overnight in Lake Elementaita.



  Hotel:  None

LAKE ELEMENTAITA – DEPART NAIROBI (140km – 3 hrs) 

Following an early breakfast, continue to Lake Naivasha for a boat ride. Then, leaving the Rift Valley behind, proceed to Nairobi arriving late in the morning. Once in the city, you will be dropped off at the InterContinental Hotel at 12:00 pm approx.; to continue with your individual travel arrangements. Flights to be booked 03:30 pm onwards.
