Masai Mara is the most popular park in Kenya as it contains all of the big 5 (lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, and leopard) and it is home to the great wildebeest migration.
Our professional safari driver will pick you up from the airport or hotel in Nairobi and bring you to your safari briefing. After this short introduction you will be on your way. From Nairobi you will enjoy a scenic drive through volcanic mountains and lakes providing breathtaking views of the Kenyan landscape. Along the way you will stop at The Great Rift Valley for photographs and then on to the town of Narok for lunch.
In the afternoon you will arrive at your accommodations where you will have time to rest before heading out for an evening game drive in Masai Mara National Game Reserve (the jewel of Africa). The Masai Mara is home to the “Big 5” – lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhino – along with over 90 other animals and over 400 species of birds. Evening is a great time to spot these animals as they are out eating their diner before it gets dark and they retreat to the safety of their habitat.
After the drive you will return to your accommodation for an authentic African dinner. After dinner there will be a bonfire where you can meet other travelers and swap stories about your safari adventure. Then it is off to bed for a good night’s sleep.
After breakfast you will head out for a full day safari game drive. [Optional: Take a hot air balloon ride over the reserve as part of your morning game drive. This is an amazing way to see the animals up close.] On this day you will get to go up to the Mara River to see the crocodiles and hippopotamus. Along other parts of the river you will see a variety of animals coming to get a drink of water.
During the drive, your guide will introduce you to the lifestyle and behaviors of each animal you see and answer any questions you have. This park offers designated areas where you will be able to enjoy a picnic lunch right out in the open. After lunch it is time to continue with the safari game drive. [Optional: Visit the Masai Village where you can discover the tribal culture and interact with local people. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience.]
After the drive you will return to your accommodation for a well-earned rest before enjoying another an authentic African dinner. After dinner there will be a bonfire where you can meet other travelers and swap stories about your safari adventure. Then it is off to bed for a good night’s sleep.
