Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo & Elephant. The big 5, they’re all here – roaming the colorful plains of this timeless landscape.
NAIROBI – MASAI MARA (Appx: 165 miles- 5 hrs)
Overnight at your pre-booked lodge/ tented camp.
FULL DAY – MASAI MARA
Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.
We’ll be up early to view the park’s abundant wildlife, said to be the densest of any park in the region. This will be a day of unlimited game drives over the golden fields and past the distinctive acacia trees adorning these plains.
Be on the lookout for Africa’s Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino. The birdlife is also abundant, and should you be here during the season of the Great Migration (July – October), prepare yourself to witness the largest movement of animals on the planet. Primarily made up of wildebeest and zebra, the migrating animals cross into the park by the thousands at the Mara River, also the site of hippos and waiting crocodiles. The potential drama here is inescapable as the streaming herds enter these lands for fresh grasses as the predators lie in wait.
Adding more richness to your Masai Mara experience, you can enjoy an optional visit to one of the local villages. There, you’ll meet the Maasai and see their lifestyle up close. Another optional event is an early morning hot air balloon ride over the reserve. Take in the park below coming to life as the fields light up and the wildlife begin a new day on the savannah. A magnificent experience – just ask your driver/guide to set up either or both activities.
MASAI MARA – NAIROBI (165 miles – 5 hrs)
Our last safari day – let’s make the most of it with an early rise and game drive. By now you should be checking off your list of animal sightings but there’s always time for more. You’re sure to have seen zebra and gazelle but keep an eye out for cheetah moving through the bush, plus jackal and hyena. We’ll enjoy one last game drive as we exit the park on our way back to Nairobi for drop off with lunch on the way at a hotel of your choice.
