Visit of Nakuru lake on the Rift Valley, £149 per person - Enjoy a variety of Kenya's birdlife on the beautiful lakes of the Rift Valley, where animals graze the shoreline. Flamingo concentrations vary according to the season. Lake Nakuru, shallow and alkaline, situated on the bed of the Great Rift Valley, has earned its fame as the home of the greatest bird spectacle in the world, a myriad of often more than a million pink flamingos which seasonally use the site to feed on the abundant algae which thrives in its shallow warm waters. The destination is situated 160 km (100 miles) from Nairobi
Visit of Nairobi National Park, Carnivore and Bomas of Kenya, £75 per person - This tour is a great combination for people who have very short time in Nairobi. At first we will visit the Nairobi National Park situated 10 kms (6 miles) from the heart of the capital. Established in 1946, has 114 kms sq (44 miles) of pristine savanna with a large livestock of migratory game and lies between the Nairobi-Mombasa railway and the garden suburb of Langata. It is open on its south-east perimeter and here the Kitengela Conservation Area allows a natural migration of the game which takes place with the seasonal rains. After visiting the park we will have a lunch in the Carnivore Restaurant. Famous for its succulent steaks, barbecue dishes and huge variety of game meat, the Carnivore has almost now become one of Nairobi 's "must see" and as much a tourist attraction as the National Museum!
