  • This is a short safari tour by road to Kenya’s Prime National Park the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. No Safari in Kenya ends without a visit to this park. With its 1,510 square km (580 sq. miles) size, it’s known as Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserve. It’s made even more famous by the annual Great Wildebeest migration in the months of July to late October when millions of animals (1,245,000 wildebeest, 200,000 Burchell’s zebra, 18,000 Eland and 500,000 Thomson’s Gazelle) cross over from the neighboring Serengeti National Park in search of pasture.

    The wildebeest migration pattern is controlled by the rainfall pattern, as the grass in the Serengeti National Park becomes scarce and dry, the Maasai Mara will still be bristling with high and lush green grass which is what brings in the wildebeest, the reverse happens from early November when they head back to Serengeti National Park this cycle is repeated year after year.

    The wildebeest are not the only attraction here; the park boast the highest density of lions per Sq. Km anywhere in Africa, also hundreds of Elephants, Cheetah, Buffalo and other plains animals are in plenty throughout the year. There are 570 birds species as well various reptiles like crocodiles etc.

    NOTE: An Extension to Zanzibar Beach or Mombasa Beach is Available for All Kenya and Tanzania Safaris.

    • DAY ONE: Depart From Nairobi to Maasai Mara Game Reserve


      The Safari trip starts at 07h30 when we pick you up from your hotel

      You then depart on a 4-5 hour drive along the floor of the Great Rift Valley to the Maasai Mara game reserve –Kenya’s all time Jewel of the parks. Indeed it’s the highlight of any professionally planned Kenya Safari Tour because of the high density of wildlife and its beautiful African Savannah landscape dominated by open plains.

      Arrive at the lodge and check in before proceeding for hot lunch.

      Take a short rest after lunch then at about 16h00 you will proceed to the park for wildlife Safaris viewing and later in the evening as the sun sets down over the Africa savannah landscape return back the lodge or Tented Camp.

      4-5 Hours’ drive smooth tarmac road and sections of rough earth road, distance 300 Kms

    • DAY TWO: Full Day in Maasai Mara Game Reserve


      This day you have 2 options, (1) you can choose to go on the usual 3 hours each morning and afternoon game viewing drives or (2) choose to go on the Half Day or Full day wildlife viewing drives with picnic lunch boxes. Option 2 is highly advisable during the Great Wildebeest Migration where you get a much better chance of seeing the famous river crossing.

      This is Kenya’s prime park and never disappoints in terms of wildlife experience. Sporting a pride of Lion is highly likely. While the Cheetah might be well camouflaged in the tall grass, our well trained Safari driver guides are well tuned to their tricks and will soon spot one for you. Elephants and thousands of other non migratory animals abound throughout the year. Over 450 hundred species of birds have been recorded here both local and migrants.

      The most popular months are from mid-July to late October during the migration of the wildebeest. This is the annual mass movement of over 1.5 million wildebeest accompanied by Zebra and Impalas from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania in search of pasture. Hundreds of hooves pounding the open plains accompanied by a cacophony of grunts create a spectacle to behold. Spend the nights in a relaxing room in either of the lodges below listening to the orchestra of rasping Cicadas, croaking Tree Frogs and the intermittent call of the nightjars and owls not to mention the mandatory lion roar and Hyena Howl.

      No need to mention the monkeys –they are quite good at announcing their presence!!

      Dinner and overnight at the Luxury Little/Main Governors Camp or Mara Serena Safari Lodge or Mara Keekorok Lodge or Mara Sopa Lodge or Salt Springs Mara Camp. (Full Board Basis)

      After breakfast you will then depart on a leisurely drive to Nairobi arriving late afternoon If time permits, you will have a farewell dinner at the famous Carnivore restaurant but if not we transfer you to the Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta international airport where you will connect your departure flight home.
