Day 10: Morning Game Drive – Transfer to Maasai Mara National Reserve 

Day 10 of your 14 Days Uganda and Kenya wildlife safari will start with an early morning breakfast then proceed with a morning game drive where you will view millions of great flamingos flock to the lake in search for food. The result is a beautiful sea of pink stretching as far as the eye can see. There are more flamingos at the lake when the water is more alkaline.

This is because more algae are present, providing food for the birds. During the long rains of April to June, the water would be less alkaline, and so there will be fewer birds. It is hard to tear oneself away from the pink beauty, but the flamingos will give cues when they start flying out. You will have seen much and taken amazing photos anyway so that you’ll move on to the other side of the game park in search of wild animals. Lake Nakuru National Park features not only a woodland savanna ecosystem but also a forest and swamp. The black and white rhinos in the attraction are heavily guarded to prevent the threat of poaching. If you are lucky, you’ll see the elusive leopard, likely perched on top of a tree.

We trust that in the course of the morning game viewing, you will encounter most of the 56 species of wild animals recorded here. After an exciting morning, you’ll drive out of the game park and start the road trip to the Maasai Mara for the second attraction of the Maasai Mara national reserve.
