When to go for 2 Days Lake Nakuru and Naivasha safari

Since both destinations boost an excellent birding and game experience, there is no appointed time for this package. However, different seasons yield different experiences. The dry season( January to February and July to October) is the best for game viewing in Lake Nakuru and crescent island. Over this period most of the wildlife congregate around flora rich lake side swamps a clustered setting that make game tracking easier. However the wet season(March to April and again November) is the best for birding as most birds are in the breeding period. Over this period some intra-africa breeding species are common. For the Europe migrants some duck species settle in Lake Naivasha throughout the wintering season(November to April).
