DAY 1: SOLIO RANCH AND GAME RESERVE – RHINOS, RHINOS AND MORE RHINOS

Solio Ranch and Game Reserve will be our first safari destination; located within the vast Laikipia region. Solio Ranch (45,000 acres) is an amazing savannah nestled between Mt. Kenya and Aberdare Ranges; and both mountains are clearly visible from Solio on clear days. This ranch hosts a combination of both savannah woodlands and savannah grasslands, forming a scenic mosaic of wildlife habitats. The riverine vegetation meandering through the plains provides a great habitat for mammals to rest off and refresh in the cool Laikipia waters.

Solio Game Reserve, set up in 1970, is an amazing 19,000 acres allocated for the protection of rhinos. Both Black Rhinos and White Rhinos interact harmoniously in this great place. Solio ranch has the largest population of White Rhinos in the entire World. The rhinos bred here are often translocated into other conservation areas across the African continent. Other mammals here include African Lion, Spotted Hyena, Common Impala, Leopard, Cheetah and Cape Buffalo.

Highlight birds here include African Crowned Eagle, Grey Crowned Crane, White-bellied Bustard and Long-tailed Widowbird.

DAY 2: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK – THE GREAT RIFT VALLEY

From Solio, we shall continue our safari to the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. The park is known for the mighty Lake Nakuru, a soda lake at the heart of the great ecosystem. This park is also a great sanctuary for rhinos and these may be encountered on our game drives.

The local birds make Lake Nakuru special too, and it is often referred as the birdwatcher’s paradise. Enjoy the large herds of herbivores, especially the local Cape Buffaloes among many other spectacular wildlife species. The landscapes here are very rewarding as well.

DAY 3 AND 4: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE – PREDATORS GALORE

Renowned for the annual wildebeest migration, which is often regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, Masai Mara National Reserve is the crown of our safari experience. Considered the ultimate wildlife haven in Kenya, this reserve has a lot to offer.

From all members of the Big 5 to the numerous herbivores grazing the landscape in huge herds, Masai Mara is indeed amazing. You will spend the next days of the safari learning about this magical destination with our safari guide. Enjoy interesting game drives as you track the Big 5, the Big Cats- Lion, Cheetah and Leopard and much more.
