Get to enjoy the abundant birdlife, lake, landscape scenery big cats and the 8th wonder of the world, the annual Wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara. Lake Nakuru is at an elevation of 1,754 m above sea level. It lies to the south of Nakuru, in the rift valley of Kenya and is protected by Lake Nakuru National Park.
The lake’s abundance of algae attracts a vast quantity of flamingos that famously line the shore. The park is gorgeous all year round and it is home to black and white Rhino, Lions, Leopards, Hippos and the endangered Rothschild’s Giraffes. The southern part of the Lake offers great opportunities to experience lionesses sleeping under trees and also leopard hoovering around.
During the month of July & October, The Masai Mara becomes home to over 2 million animals and gives way to one of nature’s most spectacular events of the year – The Great Wildebeest Migration, an opportunity to witness nature’s most extraordinary journeys. The migration happens every year, whereby millions of Wildebeests and Zebras cross the Mara River from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Masai Mara National Reserve in search of greener pastures.
