3 Days / 2 Nights Lake Bogoria And Lake Nakuru National Parks Road Safari

LAKE BOGORIA
The lake is remarkable in many ways; it is a long and narrow soda lake dominated by the sheer face of the Siracho escarpment and the northeastern parts of the Aberdares on the eastern shore. On the western shore there are hot springs and geysers with boiling water that vapors into the air, enshrouds the very place in mystical steam. Lake Bogoria is an important nesting ground for the flamingos and in the shallow lake there a thousands of nests made out of mud. Not far from the shore of Lake Bogoria there are hot springs and geysers as a result of the volcanic activity in the Great Rift Valley. There are other wildlife than the flamingos to see at Lake Bogoria; Leopard, greater Kudu, Klipspringers and Caracal. You can walk or cycle unaccompanied in the Reserve as far as the springs, but if you want to venture beyond this point, you need permission from the warden who can supply you with an armed ranger for protection. The Kesubo Swamp just North of the lake is a heaven for bird-watchers and the swamp holds the Kenyan record for the largest number of species seen in one hour (96 species of birds).

LAKE NAKURU
Imagine coming out through the yellow acacia woodlands to see a small group of rhinos, the endangered Rothschild giraffe, leopard, waterbucks, hippos, zebras, others and many different species of birds foraging in the shallow blue waters of the lake, on a background of the biggest euphorbia forest in Africa. Yes, it almost sounds like a fantasy, but in Lake Nakuru National Park it is actually a quite common sight

LAKE NAIVASHA
Lake Naivasha has become a popular destination for weekend trips as people come to enjoy the tranquil surroundings and the varied birdlife. There are a big population of hippos along the shore of Lake Naivasha but no crocodiles as the altitude (1900m above sea level) makes the water too cold for their liking. Lake Naivasha lies at the foot of Mount Longonot – a perfectly shaped Volcano and the lake was once flourishing with waterlilies and along its shores there were great papyrus swamps.

You will be picked up from the airport or your hotel in Nairobi at 7:00 am and then head south. Stop at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint (referred to as the Escarpment). You will proceed direct to Lake Bogoria arriving in time for lunch at your pre-booked hotel.

After breakfast you will check out and leave for Lake Nakuru national park with an enroute game drive as you proceed to your pre-booked hotel. Check in, relax and later enjoy an evening game drive. The game here is in search of the black and white rhinos, the endangered Rothschild giraffe, leopard, waterbucks, hippos, zebras, others and many different species of birds.

Dinner and overnight at your pre-booked hotel.

After breakfast you will have an enroute game drive as you exit Nakuru national park. You will drive direct to Lake Naivasha for a refreshing boat ride which you will get very close to the hippos as you look out for fish eagles and other species of birds. The tour here ends with a walk in the crescent island where you walk past animals like the Zebras, gnus, impalas etc. These are great places for walking safaris because of the lack of big predators. The tour proceeds to Nairobi for drop off in the afternoon.
