Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara, Kenya

Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, you will drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley. After that, you arrive at your overnight camp, located on the border of Masai Mara, in time for lunch. This afternoon you will explore Masai Mara on your first game drive, getting a taste of what this legendary game park has to offer.

You will stay in safari tents overlooking the untamed savannah plains and woodlands of Masai Mara. At night, you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as the creatures of the wild communicate with each other in the darkness, more than enough reason to visit.

 

Day 2: Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya

The next two days are spent game viewing in Kenya's finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara. Your morning and afternoon game drives will 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 an abundance of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, and 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 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. Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at extra cost. You will stay overnight at the same luxury tented camp near Masai Mara on day two and three.
