Interested in being involved as a volunteer, working within a community, getting to know its inhabitants, and living with them - all the while discovering a new way of life and another reality? If, however, traveling alone in in Mombasa Kenya, Africa Venture Safaris will be there at your disposal to assist in every way. For more information on our volunteer programmes please get in touch with us.
After the program, enjoy our short safari holidays:
Day 1: Nairobi - Nakuru. Depart Nairobi in the morning and drive to the Great Rift Valley viewing sceneries en route arriving to the Pink Lake often referred so due to its great masses of Flamingos. After lunch proceed for game drive in the park with numerous animals. Dinner and overnight at Lake Nakuru guest house. Lake Nakuru's claim to fame is anchored on its flamingos and the over 400 species of birds found here. The lake itself is a soda lake on the floor of the rift valley. The sight of the at times millions of flamingos is quite spectacular. From a distance the lake appears ringed in pink. The Lake has also earned a reputation as an important haven for endangered species- particularly the Rothschild Giraffe and the black and white rhino. Lions, waterbuck, buffalo and baboons are all residents here.
Day 2: Nakuru - Maasai Mara Depart the camp soon after breakfast and drive via the scenic floor of the Great Rift Valley to Masai Mara. Lunch at a campsite before proceeding for evening game drives. Dinner and overnight stay at a Mara sidai camp/Enchoro.
Day 3: Maasai Mara Full day spent exploring the park in search of the big 5. Morning and afternoon game drives are offered. Optional hot air balloon safari can be arranged at an extra cost of US$ 450 per person. Dinner and overnight stay at a Campsite. The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures.
Day 4: Maasai Mara- Nairobi Morning game drive then return to the campsite for breakfast. We drive back to Nairobi where the safari ends.
