The Rift Valley provides some of Kenya’s most dramatic scenery, with sheer cliffs, algae-rich lakes, and desert expanses dotted here and there with fertile farming land. You can do this 2 day Great Rift Lakes Safaris as a standalone or you can add other activities such as trekking or walks, going to the coast, staying in a lodge, or going on a city tour.
Depart Nairobi in the morning and drive down the escarpment to the Rift Valley floor, past Lakes Naivasha, Elementaita and Nakuru to Lake Baringo arriving in time for lunch. Spend the afternoon visiting the nearby lake Bogoria. This soda lake, with its shores of hot springs, boiling geysers and steam jets, stark evidence of the volcanic origins of the Rift Valley, lies hidden behind ridge after ridge of barren stony scrubland. Although primarily scenic, Bogoria is by no means devoid of wildlife and birds are plentiful.
Return to Lake Baringo where Hippo and crocodile abound in this fresh water lake but most visitors are entranced by the multitude of birds with over 400 species having been identified. A boat ride on the lake to view the birdlife can be arranged at your hotel.
Dinner & Overnight at the Lodge/ Camp
An early morning bird walk is possible and after breakfast you continue your journey to Lake Nakuru National Park for arriving for lunch at a lodge followed by an afternoon game drive in the Park, famous for its concentration of often more than a million pink flamingo which seasonally feed on the abundant algae which thrive in its shallow, warm waters.
After the game drives, you continue your journey back to Nairobi where you will be dropped off at your Hotel or residence or at the airport.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
