This is a sedate safari to four of Kenya’s premier game viewing areas – Lake Nakuru an ornithologist and game viewing paradise - Aberdares/Mount Kenya – volcanic mountains teeming with forest animals and birds, Sweetwaters/Ol Pejeta – a private sanctuary with amazing array of animals and birds, including a chimpanzee orphanage – and to crown it all, the Maasai Mara, arguably the best game viewing spot in the world - and one of the seven wonders of the new world. The birds-eye view of the mountains, the rift valley and Maasai Mara, accorded by the flights (weather permitting) is legendary.
