Description

Sign up for this 3-day tour and enjoy game viewing in the Mara, situated in southwest Kenya. Together with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, the Mara forms Africa's most diverse, incredible and possibly the world's top safari big game viewing eco-system. Spot the "Big Five" along with the jackals, white-bearded gnus and Oribis, and see crocodiles near the Mara River.

Highlights
  • Spot the African "Big Five" in the Mara
  • Admire scenic views of the reserve and the Mara river
  • Get a chance to meet the Masai Mara community
  • Day 1: Nairobi/ Masai Mara expand_more
    • You will be picked up from the central point in Nairobi by your driver/guide, who will accompany you to a short briefing and then head to Maasai Mara Game Reserve in the customised 7-seater safari minivan with a pop-up roof.

    • Make a brief stopover at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint for photography and then proceed to Narok Town and Masai Mara.

    • Arrive at the park, and you will take part in your first game drive in this world-famous reserve which is an extension of Serengeti National Park. At some point during your stay, you will be driven by the river; a great place to spot wildlife.

    • See why this area is a photographer’s delight where with any luck, you will be able to take amazing pictures of hippo and crocodile in the water. Park rules allow for off-road driving, which means that you can venture into plains where you can spot hundreds and thousands of animals. Masai Mara is also famous for its community or the Masai people.

    • Return to the camp for dinner, and your overnight stay later in the evening.

  • Day 2: Masai Mara expand_more
    • Head to the reserve with a picnic lunch box to enjoy along the way. You will spend the whole day on an exciting game drive. Masai Mara offers incredible scenery and plenty of game. It is perhaps the only region left in Kenya where a visitor may see animals in the same super-abundance as existed a century ago.

    • Spend the afternoon on a game drive in search of the black-manned lion. A lion kill can be witnessed in the late afternoon or a leopard in a tree enjoying the meal he has dragged up on a limb to avoid disturbance and detection. This reserve has hilly savannahs, rolling grasslands, and a forest gallery on the Mara River and its tributaries.

    • Soak in the abundance of untamed wilderness, fresh and natural scenery, filled with exotic wildlife during our expertly guided game drives.

    • You can find all the "Big Five" animals (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo) here. However, the population of black rhinos is severely threatened, with only 37 black rhinos left as of 2000 herds of plains zebras are found throughout the park, as well as Masai giraffes, common giraffes, jackals, white-bearded gnus, Oribis, warthogs, Thomson's and Grant's gazelles, hartebeests, hyenas, bat-eared foxes, rare Topi antelope and beautiful Roan antelope, as well as hippos and crocodiles in the Mara River.

    • Return to the camp for dinner and your overnight stay in the evening.

  • Day 3: Masai Mara / Nairobi expand_more
    • After breakfast, go on your last morning game drive in Masai Mara with the chance to see the “Big 5” possibly on a hunting mission as well as also spot some early risers.

Know before you go
  • Visit this wildlife reserve in July- September, which will allow you the best chance to witness and watch firsthand as thousands of wildebeests migrate across the swollen crocodile-infested Mara River. The sheer number of wildebeests arriving in the area is staggering. The migration is a dramatic mass movement of almost two million wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles in an annual seasonal cycle driven by rainfall. Wildebeests make dramatic river crossings to reach the reserve’s fresh grazing, facing enormous crocodiles to feast on the Mara plains and regain their strength.
