Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve is well known as one of the World’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries. Accommodation in most hotels found in the Masai Mara are of class, culture & Comfort with extensive spirit of service mix.
Your driver/guide will pick you up from your Nairobi hotel, residence, or Nairobi airport. Hop into the 4 x 4 Jeep for your journey to the Masai Mara, Kenya’s most popular wildlife park.
Watch the dawn break over the fields from the comfort of your safari vehicle. We’ll make a stop at the town of Narok for breakfast
As we continue to the Mara, you’ll see local homesteads and perhaps Maasai herdsmen in their colorful wraps, tending to their cattle. We should arrive at the park at approximately 10:30 hrs.
The day is yours for unlimited game drives, lunch, relaxation or whatever you choose.
The park is well-known for its immense parade of wildlife and during the migration season (July – September), an unending stream of wildebeest and zebra.
We’ll be looking for lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, and elephant, plus the more than 95 other mammals that inhabit this massive habitat.
We’ll enjoy a picnic lunch at the Mara River, site of the animal crossing during the migration. Here, crocodile lie in wait for the arriving hordes of wildlife, along with lion, cheetah, and other hunters.
The Mara is alive with nature’s drama so this will be a very active day.
We’ll spend the night in the Mara at your choice of safari lodge or tented campground
The wildlife is waiting for us, so we’ll be up early to observe them coming into the new day.
This will be followed by a big safari breakfast at your accommodation. By now you’re beginning to get the feel for the rhythms of the great Mara and its myriad wildlife. We’ll head out on another game drive, tracking for more exciting predators.
While here at the Masai Mara, there are several optional opportunities to enjoy. If you desire, take a visit to the local Maasai people at a nearby village. You’ll learn about their culture and perhaps see some of their ceremonies.
For a soaring experience few get to witness, hop aboard a pre-dawn hot air balloon flight over the park. There’s nothing like watching the land and the wildlife come alive as the day breaks below. This is Africa at its most wondrous. Ask your guide to make arrangements for either or both optional tours.
But finally, it’s time to depart the reserve. We’ll take one last game drive as we exit on our way to Nairobi.
Traveling back to the capital city, we’ll stop to refresh and view the great Rift Valley escarpment. Our 2-day adventure has been filled with dramatic moments like this and not soon forgotten.
We should arrive back in Nairobi toward the early evening and will bring you to your hotel, residence, or the airport.
It’s been a wonderful and busy two days. We thank you for letting us show you the best of Africa. Hope to see you soon!
