ABOUT MASAI MARA & NAKURU

OVERVIEW

The Masai Mara is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. It is globally famous for its exceptional population of Masai lions, African leopards and Tanzanian cheetahs, and the annual migration of zebra,Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration. It is contiguous with the Serengeti National Park in Mara Region, Tanzania. It is named in honor of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area) and their description of the area when looked at from afar: "Mara," which is Maa (Maasai language) for "spotted," an apt description for the circles of trees, scrub, savanna, and cloud shadows that mark the area. Lake Nakuru National park on the other side is a small Park located in the floor of Rift Valley but known worldwide for its high numbers of Fuschia pink flamingoes and other species of water birds. Apart from birding the park also hosts a variety of wildlife such as Rhinos, buffallos, baboons, lions, leopard, cheetah and others. Only elephant is a notable absentee from this park due to its size. Just two hours' drive from Nairobi, Lake Nakuru is among Kenya's finest national parks. Flanked by rocky escarpments, pockets of forest and at least one waterfall, the park is gorgeous year-round and is home to both black and white rhinos, lions, leopards, hippos and giraffes. Rising water levels in 2014 forced the park's famous flamingos to flee, as well as the park authorities to move the entrance gate – the old one now stands submerged by the lake along with hundreds of now-dead trees, creating a fairly haunting first impression. The southern end of the lake is the best place to see wildlife, away from the busy city of Nakuru, which border's the park's northern extent. The forested area below Flamingo Hill is a favourite lion-spotting point – lionesses love to sleep in the trees – while leopards frequent the same area, and are also seen around Makolia camp.

 

Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes at an elevation of 1754 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

 

 

“ Offering superb plains scenery, unmatched safari activities and diverse wildlife, Masai Mara National Reserve is considered Kenya's best park. ”
