A Masai Mara safari should be one of the bucket list trips for anyone who loves traveling and wildlife. Masai Mara, considered to be the "jewel of Kenya,” gives the best experience to plunge into wildlife and be a part of the dynamic ecological system. Picture perfect Masai Mara would seem like a painting in front of your eyes with its grassy savannah with the Mara and Talek rivers flowing through. This trip is not only for environmental or wildlife enthusiasts, but it is also for all kinds of travel buffs and will leave a lasting impression in your hearts with its picturesque grasslands and invigorating experience of wildlife and nature.
Escaping into this exotic wilderness is going to make you celebrate your reunion with nature.
Arrival at Nairobi
After the arrival, you will be received by our representative and taken to the hotel. The first day will allow you to wind down from the journey. You will get a chance to go around this metropolitan city popularly known as "Green city in the sun." Depending upon your time of arrival, you may like to explore the city. We recommend not to step out on your own post sunset and better still to take a guided short tour, time permitting.
Enroute to Masai Mara
Wake up early next morning for the most awaited part of the trip, 'Masai Mara.' Post an early breakfast, set out for a 6-7 hours long journey as you drive through the Rift Valley and stop for some breathtaking views of nature. Your camp is located bang in the middle of the park and your Masai Mara safari starts as soon as you enter the park. You will first check into your camp and have lunch. Post lunch leave for your first game drive. The national park draws its name after the local inhabitants, the Maasai tribe, and "Mara" refers to spotted trees on the landscape. The champagne-colored savannah opens up for you to see the wild mammals: lions, leopards, elephants, spotted hyenas and many more, lurking around. If you are lucky enough, you can witness the rare Black Rhinos which are an endangered species.
What makes a Masai Mara safari more interesting is that you may see the glimpses of the fastest mammal on land, Cheetah, chasing down its prey. You may witness other live hunts and chases as well...be that of a lion or a leopard. At Masai Mara, one can also visit conservancies like Naboisho, Mara North and Olare Orok. The areas around the Sand, Mara and Talek rivers are also very scenic, with many animals walking along the riverbed or wading through the river to cross over to greener pastures. With a 4x4 Landcruiser, you can drive into the heart of Masai Mara to not only see a plethora of wild animals closely but also sight different species of birds too through the pockets of Acacia woodlands. As the day comes to an end, get ready to experience the most beautiful sunset radiating final rays over these golden grasses.
|Days 3 - 5||
Explore Masai Mara
Over these three days, explore Masai Mara and the richness of its wild landscape. One of these days, you can also visit a Maasai village to interact with the local people and know their culture. Interacting with the village Chief would give you rare insights into the life of the Maasais as well as their contribution to the conservation of one of the precious hubs of wildlife in its natural habitat. Another key attraction that you can opt for is a hot air balloon ride over the beautiful terrains of Masa Mara during sunrise. You can get a bird's eye view of the majestic Masai Mara while you literally float in the sky. This is typically followed by a sit down champagne breakfast amidst the wildernesses. This apart, you can also enjoy an exotic breakfast in the vast savannahs. You are going to enjoy each bite of your food amidst nature at its best. On the last evening at Mara you will experience a traditional bush dinner with Maasai dances.
Adieu to Nairobi
Today will be your final day at Mara, so it is time to enjoy one last game drive in Masai Mara till about 10 am. Thereafter proceed for breakfast at the resort post which our representative will drive you back to Nairob with an enroute lunch. You will be transferred to the international airport for your flight back home or to the next destination. You are definitely going to carry a lot of beautiful memories and stories to share with your friends and family.
