Stunning scenery and abundant wildlife from our intimate camp
Kenya is home to an astonishing array of wildlife and landscapes, and is a game viewer's paradise. This short trip includes both the glittering lakes of the Rift Valley and the rolling savannah of the Masai Mara - made famous by the incredible yearly migration of millions of wildebeest and zebras.
Kenya's birdlife is also amazingly rich, with four hundred species at the Rift Valley lakes alone; the rosy-pink view of the flamingo population on Lake Nakuru is particularly spectacular. We stay in only two bases to minimise travel and maximise gameviewing.
Our lodge at Elementaita is an ideal place to relax after an overnight flight and to explore Lake Nakuru National Park, the best small park in East Africa with a large concentration of rhino. In the Masai Mara we generally use Basecamp, an comfortable permanent tented camp situated in the heart of one of the most prolific wildlife areas on earth.
The Masai Mara fulfils all expectations of endless plains, steep escarpments and abundant game - 'must see' on any Kenya safai holiday.

What makes this trip responsible?
The properties we use employ local staff and cook using local produce. We use local guides. Exodus has supported a number of projects in the area over the years. Currently Exodus supports a project which aims to build predator proof bomas (enclosures). The aim of this project is threefold: first to reduce the number of predator attacks on livestock, second to reduce the number of retaliatory attacks and poisoning of predators from community members who have lost livestock, and thirdly to reduce deforestation caused by alternative means of boma construction.
