If you are lucky, you might even spot rare wild dogs. After lunch, enjoy a GAME DRIVE in the conservancy, including a stop at the CHIMP SANCTUARY.

Today, explore LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK during MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. The park is home to a variety of animals including giraffe, impala, Cape buffalo, and striped hyena. This is also your best chance to see white rhino, which are commonly spotted here. Relax at your lodge or camp between game drives.

Day 7                                        Maasai Mara Area

Today, your Driver/Guide pilots you on MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES in the “Mara,” as it is called by the locals. Part of the Serengeti ecosystem, the reserve boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives, generally between August and early November, the population enlarges by almost 2 million. This provides a great food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. 

NOTE: 
The Great Migration is a natural event, and the arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly year to year.
