Later, dinner and overnight at The Lake Naivasha Country Club.

Day 4: Today drive to the nearby Lake Nakuru National Park whose alkaline waters quiver with a flaming headdress of thousands upon thousands of pink flamingos. The surrounding jungle provides excellent cover for the sleek cheetah, and it is a common sight to see lions and leopards hanging from the trees, lazily dangling themselves over the deep thicket of bush. Hippos call the home and their antics are on the view as they bathe and feed right before your eyes. Black rhino sharing their space with legions of monkeys. Lunch will be at Lake Nakuru Lodge or Lionhill Lodge.
