Masai Mara Safari - Tropical Wild Expeditions

Drive through the Great Rift Valley to enjoy the picturesque view of nature and see the wild animals in their natural habitat. Delicious local cuisine also awaits you on this trip. 


DAY 01

Nairobi - Masai Mara National Reserve

  • Depart Nairobi at 0800hrs and drive north down the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. This massive valley stretches from the Middle East down through East Africa to Mozambique in Southern Africa holding along great lakes. (e.g. Victoria, Turkana, Baringo, Bogoria, Nakuru, Naivasha, Elementaita, Magadi, Natron, Tanganyika, etc). The history of this valley dates back to thousands of years during some great earth movements that caused massive shifting of the earth’s foundation rocks. The Masai Mara Game Reserve adjoins Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. 

  • Take a brief stop at Viewpoint for a few camera shots of this amazing natural phenomenon.  

  • Drive through the Great Rift Valley, the dramatic landscape and the plains inhabited by the Maasai pastoralists and across the ‘bread basket’ of Kenya covered with acres of wheat and barley. 

  • We take a brief stop at Narok town for lunch and refueling before climbing the western wall entering Hemingway’s country; “Serengeti Plains”. 

  • On arrival proceed to Camp for check-in.

  • Later at 4pm proceed for an evening game viewing drive in search of black manned Lions, Elephants, Leopards, Cheetahs, Buffalos and other plains game. 

  • The sighting of Rhino and Leopard cannot be guaranteed and luck is a necessary factor as they are sparsely numbered, very shy and elusive. 

  • Return to the Camp at 1830hrs for dinner and overnight.

DAY 02

Full Day Masai Mara National Reserve

  • After breakfast at 0730hrs, start tracking game with your Tropical Wild Expeditions guide in this Reserve which borders Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park as only an artificial border separates the two.Meaning dotted plains in the Maasai language, Mara is a vast area with scattered pockets of Acacia woodland inhabiting a wide variety of fauna. The Masai Mara is renowned for staging the Great Migration, recently named as the seventh wonder of the modern world.

  • A full day is spent game viewing across (from 0[sensitive content] hrs) the rich, tree studded grassland and rolling hills. 

  • This reserve is the most visited Park in Kenya and the best for the game as it has an extensive road and track network, which allows excellent photography and close viewing opportunities. 

  • The famous Mara is renowned for its great herds of plains game, black manned Lions, Leopards, and Cheetahs. 

  • It also has numerous Elephants and virtually every type of wildlife to be found in Kenya.Antelopes, Wildebeests, Zebras and Maasai Giraffes can be seen as well as scavengers like Hyenas and Vultures.Bird life is also prolific with over 450 species having been recorded.

  • Enjoy a picnic lunch beside the Mara River as you watch Hippos and with luck Crocodiles, basking on the rocks and one of the Wildebeests crossing points. 

  • We return to Camp at 4 pm.

  • OPTIONAL ACTIVITY: At 1700hrs, visit a nearby Masai village to see their nomadic lifestyle.(At an extra fee payable directly to the Maasai villagers – The Maasai are famous for their bravery, as they have co-existed with the animals over the years.) 

  • Rest of evening is spent at leisure with dinner and overnight at the Camp.

DAY 03

Masai Mara National Reserve - Nairobi

  • Wake up early for the Pre-breakfast game drive from 0630 – 0830 hrs, and then back to the Camp for late leisurely breakfast. 

  • After checking out from the Camp we depart Masai Mara region for Nairobi taking lunch en route, arriving in the late afternoon / early evening.
