Explore the Great rift valley Lakes & Mara Safari. ‘’Budget safari’’
This is a low cost “budget safari” by road with travel in a minibus to offer a lower-priced option to our air safaris or our 4×4 road safaris.
This 3 night / 4 day low-cost road safari visits the popular Lake Nakuru National Park and the world-renowned Masai Mara. It is operated with a private vehicle just for your group (minimum 2 people) and with an expert driver-guide. Flexible departures (any day).
Starting from Nairobi, the tour first visits the Lakeland interior of Kenya and Lake Nakuru National Park which is famed for the spectacular wildlife found on the shores of its lakes. This includes black rhino, white rhino, hippo, leopard, lion and the rare Rothschild giraffe.
After visiting Lake Nakuru National Park and staying overnight on the shores of Lake Elementaita the tour then continues for two nights in the Masai Mara which is one of the best places to see Africa’s big cats.
(Optional Upgrade to a 4×4 safari vehicle: supplement of $180 per day = $720 per 4×4 vehicle for 4 days instead of a minibus).
