Masai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular tourism destinations in Kenya- Africa. The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland. Wildlife tends to be most concentrated on the reserve’s western escarpment.

The Masai Mara is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. The annual wildebeest’s migration alone involves over 1.5 million animals arriving in July and departing in November.

There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant, and it is for this reason a visitor hardly misses to see the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino).

Itinerary

Day 1

Nairobi to Masai Mara

Meet at your hotel/ accommodation in Nairobi. There shall be a briefing by our representative and drive towards the Great Rift Valley. Shortly after leaving Nairobi, you will stop at the Great Rift Valley view point, for a breath-taking view of this Geographical phenomenon.

This geologic phenomenon, dubbed the Great Rift Valley by the Scottish explorer John Walter Gregory, divides Kenya neatly down the length of the country essentially separating east from west. Today's Rift Valley is characterized by uninhabitable desert and fertile farmland, flat arid plains, steep escarpments, thirty active and semi-active volcanoes, countless hot springs and alkaline lakes.

Descend to the floor of the Great Rift Valley and drive across it to arrive at Masai Mara in time for lunch. At 1600 hrs enjoy an afternoon game drive in the reserve. Dinner and overnight at the lodge / camp.

Day 2-4

Masai Mara Safari Experience

Full days in the reserve with both morning and afternoon game drives at 0630hrs and 1600hrs respectively. Considered by many to be Kenya’s finest game reserve, the 650sq miles of the Masai Mara adjoin Tanzania’s well-known Serengeti, forming one ecosystem.

The open rolling savannah grassland of the Mara is the home of numerous wildlife species including elephant, rhino, lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena, jackal, buffalo, eland, topi, impala, gazelle, warthog and zebra. From June to December, the annual Wildebeest migration takes place when thousands of these animals sweep across the plain and seek out new grazing areas. All meals and overnight at your accommodation.
