5 Days/ 4 Nights Sweetwater’s Game Sanctuary – Lake Nakuru National Park and Maasai Mara National Reserve Safari from Nairobi begins with a visit to the famous Sweetwater’s Game Reserve is 90,000-acre private ranch with magnificent views across the plains to the snowcapped peaks of Mount Kenya.

This game sanctuary is the closest reserve to Nairobi (3.5 hours’ drive) home to all the big five game, and has the highest ratio of game-to-area of any park or reserve in Kenya. Its popular waterhole is floodlit by night, providing excellent and secluded rarely seen game viewing.

Game drives at Sweetwater’s are indeed a pleasure. Game viewing may also take the form of game walks accompanied by a resident Naturalist, game rides on horseback, Camel riding, night game drives and “bush” lunches or dinners.

The Chimpanzee Sanctuary is most informative and entertaining and should be visited while in the Game Reserve. The Sweetwater’s Chimpanzee Sanctuary is incorporated within the Ol Pejeta Conservancy and is the only place in Kenya where this highly endangered and remarkably intelligent species can be seen.

Our next stop is Lake Nakuru National Park dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation. Twenty seven percent (27%) of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters.

The park was declared a rhino sanctuary in 1983. The Rhino stocking programme, which ensued received white rhinos from South Africa. Currently the sanctuary has approximately 45 black and 31 white Rhinoceros.

The grand finale is the Maasai Mara Game Reserve – Kenya’s most famous and finest game sanctuary. In the months of June and July each year, the wildebeests in their troops arrive at the Kenyan border, ready to cross the steep banks of the broad and fast flowing Mara River.

This crossing is truly the greatest episode of the entire migration. Hot on their heels are the predators of the savannah –lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures. The banks of the Mara River provide one of the best vantage points to witness the drama.

The Mara also offers a wide range of game wildlife; over 450 species of wild animals have been recorded here. You will most likely see the Big Five – lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard, and elephant. Not to mention numerous plain animals.
