Lake Naivasha is the second largest and highest of all Great Rift Valley lakes. It is a fresh water lake and is surrounded by two other smaller lakes, Lake Oloiden and Lake Sonachi (Crater Lake). Lake Naivasha is also a diverse bird and animal habitat, supporting animals such as hippo and over 200 species of birds. The lake is also known for fishing though this is subject to restrictions to preserve fish stock.
The Masai Mara is Kenya’s finest and most outstanding wildlife sanctuary where animals are never out of sight. The sensation of the great wildebeest migration between July and October is unparalleled. The wildlife is far from being confined within the Reserve boundaries and an even larger area extends beyond the game Reserve. This one of the most affordable safaris in Africa as we have considered budget clients seeking to have exceptional experiences.
