Day 1

Nairobi to Masai Mara National Reserve

Nairobi to Masai Mara National Reserve

Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel or airport and depart for the Masai Mara National Reserve, a 5-hour drive, arriving in time for lunch. Masai Mara is a pristine wilderness of haunting beauty! It promises visitors an abundance of wildlife, prolific birdlife, and the opportunity to catch up with all the Big Five members in one morning. The 1800km² of this veteran reserve offers a mix of African imagery: miles of lion-gold grasslands, shoals of lilac-misted hills, a meandering river, acres of thorn-bush, and kilometers of rolling wilderness. Game viewing in the Masai Mara is excellent all year round thanks to the diverse population of resident game, including the Big Five—lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino— and other popular species. The Mara’s big cats are even TV stars in a popular wildlife series! Enjoy an afternoon game drive to spot the Big Five as your introduction to the park. Return for dinner and your overnight at Mara Serena Safari Lodge.

Day 2

Masai Mara Game Drive

Masai Mara Game Drive

Enjoy a full day in the Masai Mara with morning and afternoon game drives. Masai Mara National Reserve offers one of the best opportunities to see cheetahs and lions in Kenya. Visiting this reserve in July will allow you to witness firsthand as thousands of wildebeest migrate across the treacherous crocodile-infested Mara River. This annual wildebeest migration is one of nature's most remarkable wildlife spectacles. The migration is a dramatic mass movement of almost two million wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles in a seasonal, annual cycle driven by rainfall. Wildebeests make dramatic river crossings to reach Masai Mara's fresh grazing, facing enormous crocodiles that feast on the Mara plains and regain their strength. November's short rains trigger the last leg of the migration when the wildebeest move south to Serengeti. Return to the tented camp for dinner and your overnight stay.
