Description

Sign up for this wildlife excursion to explore the most popular National Reserve in Kenya, Masai Mara National Reserve and spot the big five: lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalos, leopards, along with other animals and birds. Enjoy a picnic lunch beside the Mara River, one of the Wildebeests crossing points during the great seasonal migrations.

Highlights
  • Participate in game drives in Masai Mara and spot the big five
  • See hippos and crocodiles at the Mara River
  • Day 1- Nairobi - Masai Mara expand_more
    • The tour guide will pick you up from your Nairobi Hotel, residence, or the Nairobi airport at 7:30 am to start the program itinerary. In your private 4 x 4 Jeep, we’ll journey out to the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve. The land will get increasingly dramatic as we enter the Great Rift Valley escarpment. 
    • We will make stops along the way to refresh and view the impressive features of the escarpment.
    • Then, we’ll head down to the valley floor, exploring the scenic features through Masai country, perhaps getting glimpses of the colourful herdsman along the way as we approach the reserve.
    • We should arrive at the Masai Mara at about lunchtime, which we’ll enjoy at our chosen accommodation.
    • Next, get ready for the incredible expanse and stirring wildlife populations of the great reserve. This is one of the world’s greatest ecosystems and unparalleled for its diversity of wildlife. Hunters and grazers, both large and small, fill the sweeping hills and savannahs of the beautiful park. Your first game drive will be an introduction to the numbers and variety of wildlife you’ll experience during your three days in the park.

    Spend the first of two nights in the park at your choice of safari lodge or tented camp.

  • Day 2- Masai Mara National Reserve expand_more
    • We’ll be up early to view the park’s abundant wildlife, said to be the densest of any park in the region. This will be a day of unlimited game drives over the golden fields and past the distinctive acacia trees adorning these plains.
    • Be on the lookout for Africa’s Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino. The birdlife is also abundant, and should you be here during the season of the Great Migration (July – October), prepare yourself to witness the largest movement of animals on the planet. Primarily made up of wildebeest and zebra, the migrating animals cross into the park by the thousands at the Mara River, also the site of hippos and waiting crocodiles. The potential drama here is inescapable as the streaming herds enter these lands for fresh grasses as the predators lie in wait.
    • Adding more richness to your Masai Mara experience, you can enjoy an optional visit to one of the local villages. There, you’ll meet the Maasai and see their lifestyle up close.
    • Another optional event is an early morning hot air balloon ride over the reserve. Take in the park below coming to life as the fields light up and the wildlife begins a new day on the savannah. A magnificent experience – just ask your driver/guide to set up either or both activities.

    Spend your second night in the park at your choice of accommodation.

    Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

  • Day 3- Masai Mara - Nairobi expand_more
    • Our last safari day – let’s make the most of it with an early rise and game drive. You should be checking off your list of animal sightings by now, but there’s always time for more. You’re sure to have seen zebra and gazelle but keep an eye out for cheetah moving through the bush, plus jackal and hyena.
    • We’ll enjoy one last game drive as we exit the park on our way back to Nairobi.
    • Make a stop for lunch and drive back to town. We should arrive back in Nairobi in the late afternoon and will bring you to your hotel, residence or the airport. You may also continue to the Kenya coast at Mombasa or perhaps to the island of Zanzibar. 

    Tour ends.
