Students Tours: Crater Lake. Elsamere CenterAfter breakfast there is the briefing by the guide about the program. By 8.30 a.m. we leave Nairobi via the Nakuru road to the Rift valley. The Nairobi - Nakuru road is on a contour along the rim of the Rift valley and on viewpoints we will be able to see our whole route for the next days.We arrive at Elsamere, the home of the late Joy Adamson of the Born Free fame, in time for lunch. This will be the base for two days as we enjoy the activities in the Lake Naivasha area. The property is secluded with huge fever trees that stretch down to the lake's shore.In the afternoon we do our first African game viewing walk at nearby Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. It is a lesser lake in the Rift Valley but a place where nature is at its best.We do a walk in the sanctuary followed by a circular trek on the top of the crater from where we see the lake from various angles. Pleasant interruptions on the walks will be from giraffes, black and white Colobus monkeys, elands and a range of gazelles. We return to the Else Mere for overnight.
Students Tours: Hell's Gate National Park.We wake up for breakfast with the sun giving a wonderful effect over the lake. An early morning here should not be missed by anyone with an eye for birds since the lake boasts a wide variety of water and woodland birds.After breakfast we do a short transfer to the gate of the park. This is a unique park where walking is done in the middle of wildlife. Giraffes, zebras, warthogs and many types of gazelles are found here. The first part of this walk is done in typical flat African savanna in a volcanic area with huge rock boundaries. There are camphor and acacia trees all over and this is where to look for the giraffe as they mainly feed on them. A picnic lunch will be at a view point overlooking the gorge.The last part of the walk is done in the Hell's Gate Gorge by descending into a steep canyon with running water from geysers and wild vegetation. The climax of the day is in walking in the Side Gorge where the rocks have split to leave only a walking path. We climb back to the rangers post for transfer back to camp.

Students Tours: Lake Nakuru National Park, camp in Lake ElementaitaDepart Naivasha for Lake Nakuru National Park. It is the oldest park of Kenya.

We make a wildlife viewing drive around the lake and have a picnic lunch on a view point overlooking the lake.Afternoon transfer to Hill court hotel for dinner and overnight
Students Tours: to Masai Mara. Camping safariWe now take a break from walking to put all our attention to watching wildlife. To see the best of Kenyan wildlife, Masai Mara is the place to be. Elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, gazelles and all the big cats are found here. So, after breakfast westart our journey along Rift valley passing through Narok Town: a colorful Masai town. Our game viewing does not actually start at the park gate. We will be able to see many animals along the way grazing side by side with the Masai livestock.

Students: Masai Mara Full Day The whole day explore the parks amazingly high concentration of game. This game reserve is Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary. Including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebra, there is also resident wildlife year round.The Mara's gentle fertile climate bounded by The Rift, offers perhaps the richest stocked reserve set within some 1672 sq km - an unlimited spectacle of wildlife. Located 268 km west of Nairobi, the emphasis here is on game. Herds of immense Elephants, browse among Lion, Buffalo, Thompson Gazelle, Zebra and Topi. You may occasionally sight a Rhino or Leopard but you have to be very keen since Rhinos in Masai Mara are very elusive and its not easy to spot them unlike the leopard. On this day you will explore the Masai Mara and you will have your lunch at the Mara River, this is one of the desire of many travelers as this is the point where the great Migration of the Wildebeest takes place,the annual migration of a million Wildebeest follows the rains north at this point you will also be able to spot in the Mara River Hippos play and Cross bask on the banks.
