Big 5 Encounter safari package take you to the highlights of Kenya’s tourism destinations. Our big 5 encounter safari program is one of the most booked Kenya safari holiday package and has the highest chance of sighting the Big five in their natural habitats. It combines two unique parks, Masai Mara National Reserve and Lake Nakuru National Park. The tour takes you first to the spectacular Rift Valley leading you to Lake Nakuru National park known as the ‘bird watchers paradise’. The park has recently been enlarged partly to provide the sanctuary for both the endangered black rhinos and the white rhinos. It also provides safe haven for the endangered Rothschild giraffes.
After spending a night on the floor of the Rift Valley in Lake Nakuru, the Big 5 Encounter then takes you to the most famous Kenya safari destination, the Masai Mara National Reserve.
