The waters here are populated by thousands of beautiful, pink flamingos lining the shores of Lake Nakuru. After lunch, depart for an afternoon game drive in Nakuru National Park.

Day 5 - 7: Lake Nakuru Amboseli National Park

After an early breakfast, leaving the Rift Valley behind, continue towards Nairobi and then head south towards Amboseli.

Most of Amboseli National Park consists of a partially dry, lake bed of evaporated salts and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland. Around the swamps the vegetation is lush with yellow barked acacia and phoenix palms. Expect most types of game in the park including rhino, giraffe, gazelle, lion, cheetah and leopards. Birdlife is prolific, especially around the swamp areas.

The following day, morning and afternoon game drives are scheduled in Serengeti National Park.

Depart to explore what is commonly referred to as the world's largest wildlife area. After breakfast, descend through the early morning mists and 2,000 feet into the crater. Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest intact volcanic caldera. Due to its size and diversity, the crater floor is comprised of several distinct areas, ranging from forest, swamps, lakes and springs, to open grassland and some sandy dunes. It's an awesome wildlife experience. After a picnic lunch, return to the lodge in the late afternoon.
