Day 3 Masai Mara
Today there will be a possibility to take a hot air balloon ride.
“Take to the skies for the ultimate Maasai Mara wildlife adventure,
soaring in a hot air balloon over herds of game to the inner reaches of
the Mara. You’ll ascend in the early morning, when winds are calmest.
Watch as the professional crew fills the balloon with hot air. Slowly the
big, colorful bag begins to bulge and take shape. Now board the
traditional wicker gondola basket while the expert pilot makes final
adjustments. As the pink and red fireball of the sun rises in splendor
over the plains, you’re up, up and away – for the flight of a lifetime!
Your balloon can soar over the most inaccessible and undisturbed parts of
the Mara, with only the intermittent whisper of the balloon’s gas burners
punctuating the silence of your majestic flight. Because wind and weather
conditions vary, every flight is a new and different experience! From your
vantage point about 50-500 feet above the reserve, you have a fantastic
360-degree bird’s-eye view as one of the most dramatic scenes in nature
unfolds beneath you. Depending on the season, you might witness herds of
antelope flowing like schools of fish across the plain, groups of
elephants grazing undisturbed in a remote ravine, lionesses stealthily
stalking a herd of grunting wildebeest, or zebras conferring in a
confusion of black and white stripes and bark-like calls. After your
incredible flight, it’s time to come back down to earth for breakfast. As
you sip champagne and dig into a splendid breakfast of sizzling bacon,
eggs, sausage, home-made breads, fresh tropical fruit and steaming cups of
Kenyan coffee or tea under the clear blue sky, you might wonder what all
the ordinary people are doing on this perfect African morning! Before
leaving, the pilot will present you with your balloon flight certificate,
and then you’ll enjoy a game drive en route back to the camp. No flight of
the imagination can match this airborne experience!
Note: Comfortable clothes, a hat or visor, sunglasses, sunscreen and a
light jacket or sweater are recommended. This tour will be offered at a
very special price if booked together with the safari.
6.00am Wake up call. Tea, coffee and cookies will be served in the campsite.
6.30am Set out for an early morning game drive in the reserve. This is
usually the most popular game viewing time. During the early hours
temperatures are low, thus providing a favorable atmosphere both for the
game and the viewer. Lion, Cheetah and Leopard roam the vast grasslands in
search for their next meal, it may be an unsuspecting impala or even a
small one like the warthog…whatever the players, the spectacle of nature
unfolding is always awe inspiring!
8.30am Back at the camp, enjoy your sumptuous breakfast.
10.00am Mid morning game drive.
12.30pm lunch in the campsite then its time at leisure to relax by the
Swimmi ng pool.

The road to the Green Crater Lake takes you out of Naivasha and along a rough and bumpy road down the edge of lake Naivasha , passing by huge Greenhouses where roses and other flowers are grown for the export market. You will arrive at the Green Crater Lake at 9.30am approx and you will begin your morning game walk. The green crater lake was formed by volcanic activity. The group will walk in a reserve where its possible to get up close to Giraffe and many varieties of antelope.it's a great opportunity for photos.The guides will answer questions about the animals, birdlife etc and point out the rocks formed due to the volcanic activity.
At 12.00pm you will leave for lunch at 'canary camp' about 20 mininutes back down the road toward Naivasha town.This lunch will be supplied by KWSS and will be prepared by their cook. carnary camp is a lovely camp on the shore of Lake Naivasha and has a large resident bird population inc Ibis, superb starlig. Lovebirds, fisheagle and Hoopoe and is a great opportunity to see the Black and White colobus monkey.After lunch you will have some free time. You could sit back at the campsite bar and enjoy a cold drink and a game of pool or participate in some optional activities like cycling around the village or hire a small power boat for a trip out on to the lake. An option worth considering for inclusion in the Itinerary.
Elsamere, the home of the late Joy and George Adamson is just a few klms away. Joy is famous for her book 'Born Free' and was an artist of some note. For an entry fee of Ksh 1000 per pax (approx USD$10) they get to visit the small museum, watch a documentary video of their life and then sit in the lovely gardens beside the lake and enjoy an afternoon tea of beautiful cakes, scones and slices and tea and coffee.
