This safari will start off with a journey to the beautiful Maasai Mara via the Great Rift Valley which offers spectacular views. On arrival at the Maasai Mara Park we will spend our time in search of the wildlife that makes this one of Africa's premier safari destinations.
The Maasai Mara is especially famous for its large cat population and also the fact that it plays an integral role in the Wildebeest Migration, a wildlife spectacular like none other on earth.
The scenic and wildlife adventure of this short Maasai Mara Camping Safari ends back in Nairobi on the last day.
Morning pick up from your residence by 8:00am.
Brief on your safari and we depart for Maasai Mara game reserve. We will make a brief stop at the Great Rift Valley View Point for photos and proceed.
Ascending the western wall of the Great Rift Valley floor, we reach arguably Kenya’s most celebrated natural attraction-The Maasai Mara game reserve. A 1,500 sq. km slab of open Savannah dotted with acacia trees-the Kenyan section of the wildly beautiful Serengeti plains, teems with wildlife. Being in the Mara has been described by some authorities as ‘’ being in the New York of the natural world’’You will spend the next 02 nights here to explore.
The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here.You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place.
This is the annual wildlife migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures. Afternoon game drive in the reserve.
Meal Plan: Lunch & Dinner
Morning and afternoon game drive/ full day game drive with picnic lunches, explore the reserves’ amazingly high concentration of game. This game reserve is Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary. Including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here.
Although July, August and September are the months when the Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebra, there is also resident wildlife year round. The famous Maasai tribesmen live within the dispersal area of the game reserve.
