The topography changes as you enter the vastly grassy plains of the reserve - the jewel of Kenya’s game park, located in the northern section of the great Serengeti plains. This reserve is also home to the Big Five - elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes and rhinos, as well as thousands of the greater and lesser plain game animals. Everything will seem to be magnified here.

DAY 02

Maasai Mara

  • After breakfast, enjoy a full day game drive exploring the park in search of the Big Five. The Masai Mara Game Reserve is arguably Kenya's most popular game sanctuary. It is the most famous and most visited game reserve in Kenya. The film 'Out of Africa' was made to a great extent in this reserve. Virtually every type of wildlife can be seen at the Mara. A spectacle worth seeing is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle from the Serengeti plains across the Tanzania border and the Mara River so as to reach the Masai Mara grazing fields from late June. The dramatic crossing of these animals over the river and the preying on the migrants by predators can be viewed from early July to mid-October. The reserve is also home to rich bird life with close to over 452  bird species have been recorded here. Picnic lunch will be provided. You also have the option of visiting a Masai Village.

  • Dinner and overnight stay.

DAY 03

Masai Mara- Nakuru

  • After breakfast, depart with an en-route game drive as you leave the Mara region towards Lake Nakuru wherein you will have a chance of viewing leopards, cheetahs, lions and other cats hunting their prey. This is the best time to spot the cats family, that is when they are making a kill for their breakfast/lunch as the sun rises up.
