Brief stop at the View Point to see the spectacular scenery of the Great Rift Valley, which includes steep escarpments, volcanic mountains and lakes.

Dinner and overnight in a camp

Day 2: Morning  birdwatching or boat ride drive to round the lake or to Crescent Island. Alternatively, hire bicycles for cycling in HellÌs Gate National Park.

Day 4: Take an extensive tour of the Masai Mara. Leaving shortly after dawn, you spend the whole day driving through different locations of the Reserve, watching animals as they feed or groom each other. Take a short break from the mid day heat to have picnic lunch at the Hippo Pool where you can watch hippos gracefully swim or bask lazily. By the time you return to the camp in the evening, you've hopefully seen the elephant, the rhino, the lion, the giraffe, the hippo, the buffalo, the zebra, the leopard and a lot of other species including birds. An evening Maasai dance and cultural lecture around the campfire can be arranged at an extra cost. Dinner and overnight Mara Springs Safari Camp
