Description

The Mara is unequivocally one of the best safari destinations in Africa, irrespective of the time of the year you travel. On this 3-day safari, the guide will escort you to experience an exciting wildlife adventure in one of Africa’s most popular game park as you go on game drives to spot the Big 5.

  • Day 1 - Nairobi to Masai Mara expand_more
    • Pick from your hotel/airport at 06: 30 by the Kenyan driver and drive to the city center as you are briefed on the day's activity before you depart to Kenya's top wildlife game reserve. At this point, you can visit the supermarket and buy snacks or anything that you would like to purchase for the trip. 
    • Proceed to one of the renowned viewpoints in the Great Rift Valley, and you will get brief information about the formation of the rift valley and Kenya History. Stop-over for sightseeing and photography.
    • Thereafter, you will drive to Mara via Narok town and arrive, where you will be welcomed by the staffs just in time for a hearty lunch. 
    • After freshening up, go for a late afternoon game drive in this park, as it is considered the best time to view animals roaming around. The reserve is essentially the northern extension of Tanzania Serengeti National Park. See the migratory wildebeest, the common zebra, the Masai giraffe, and antelopes like Thompson's gazelle, Hartebeest, impala, and Dik Dik.

    Return to the camp for dinner and overnight stay.

  • Day 2 - Full Day Masai Mara Game Drive expand_more
    • Wake up early and proceed to have your Buffet Breakfast served by the cook. Then, set out with your packed lunch for a full day of wildlife game viewing. The driver will open the pop-up roof for you to have a clear game view. This offers you a greater chance of spotting diverse wildlife that Mara is well known for.
      • Keep your cameras ready for memorable shots as you search for the Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, buffalo), cheetah, hyena, wildebeest, giraffes, zebras, and topi, among others.
    • After exploring the park, proceed to the Mara River banks, the crossing point during the yearly wildebeest and zebras migration. Relish lunch served in the wild. You are advised not to feed the monkeys (they will try to snatch some of your fruits which is a common trait).
    • Proceed for another afternoon game drive as you head back to the camp, where you'll have a chance to experience a hot African cup of coffee or tea served by the staff.

     Overnight in the Lodge/Camp. 

  • Day 3 - Masai Mara to Nairobi expand_more
    • Wake up early, have a cup of hot coffee or African tea and proceed for an early morning game drive. The early morning Game safari offers you a golden opportunity to spot the predators. The full game drive will take about 2-3 hours, after which you will head back to the camp for breakfast.
      • Later, an optional visit to a Masai cultural homestead (at an extra cost) can help you learn more about their ancient culture and traditions. Inside the Manyatta, take as many photos as you can to the memory of the Africa Cultural visit. You can also join them in their colourful songs and dance.
