3 Days Nature tour itinerary for Nairobi & Masai Mara: Visit The Home Of The Wildebeest
Go for a safari in one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World”, and home of the Great Wildebeest Migration that has more than two million animals. They migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October.
Nairobi to Masai Mara – Kenya
Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley.
Arrive at Maasai Mara Game Reserve in time for lunch in the afternoon.
Check into the luxurious lodge or basic permanent tents that are self-contained and fitted with feature beds and en-suite bathroom areas.
In the evening 4 pm, take your first thrilling game drive in the Masai Mara game reserve, one of East Africa’s top safari destinations.
At 6 pm, return to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay. In the night, you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as they communicate with each other in the darkness – more than enough reason to visit.
Indulge in an evening sundowners cocktail as you view the sun go down is a good way to end the day at an extra cost.
Dinner and overnight at the Camp/ Lodge.
Masai Mara Game Reserve – Kenya
Rise up for an early morning Masai Mara hot air balloon safari that can be arranged at extra cost.
After breakfast, leave for a full day game drive with picnic lunch at Mara river migration bride area. This day is spent game viewing in Kenya’s finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The morning and afternoon game drives take you in search of Africa’s Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve.
Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara, you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is without a doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October to December. There is nothing thrilling like a bush dinner to end such an adventurous day at an extra cost
Return in the evening for dinner and overnight at the Camp/ Lodge.
