Day 1

Nairobi - Masai Mara

Nairobi - Masai Mara

In the morning at 8.30 am, we pick you up from your hotel and depart from Nairobi. We drive through the viewpoint of the Great Rift Valley to the Masai Mara National Reserve. This enormous reserve is actually part of the vast Serengeti plains, famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest migration. It is also home to the Big Five; lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino. Enjoy lunch at the camp and relax for a while, before we go on the afternoon game drive. The Mara Game Reserve is one of the greatest wildernesses in the world. Large mammals are varied and easy to see. The wild animals found in the park are the Maasai giraffe, buffalo, eland and thousands of plain game including impala, zebra, and both the Thomson’s and Grant's gazelle. We return to the camp for dinner and our overnight stay.

We go on an early morning game drive at sunrise when predators are active with their morning hunt. We will have an opportunity to capture a lion making a kill as they mostly hunt very early in the morning, before sunrise. We will experience the beauty of an African sunrise, which reveals the backdrop of Masai Mara (meaning the dotted hills in Maa language). We later return to the camp for breakfast. After breakfast, we start our drive back to Nairobi. You will be dropped off at either your city hotel or the airport to connect to your home-bound journey, depending on the arrangements.
