Fall in love with Maasai Mara - Three days fly-in from Nairobi
Maasai Mara (Masai Mara) is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves and it is one of the best-known and most popular reserves. Maasai Mara and the Serengeti National Park form Africa’s most diverse, incredible, and most spectacular ecosystems and possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing ecosystem. Safaris are without a doubt some of the best you ever get.
The ecosystem hosts over 95 animal species and they include large herds of elephants and buffaloes meandering the plains, the hippo pools in the Mara brown rivers, Masai giraffes, topis, grant and Thompson’s gazelles, zebras, plenty of Nile crocodiles, blue- and red-tailed monkeys and tree hyraxes. An abundance of herbivores definitely makes it an ideal hunting ground for predators - and therefore a comfy home of Kenya's famous big cats. The lions, leopards, cheetahs, spotted hyenas and jackals can be seen easily.
With a flight bringing you from Nairobi to the heart of Mara in one hour, you’ll save some four hours compared to the drive, and maximize the time spent in the wilderness.

DAY 1 - Nairobi - Maasai Mara National Reserve
We will pick you up at your hotel in Nairobi in the morning and bring you to the Wilson airport for your morning flight. After one hour of a scenic flight, that, itself, offers incomparable views of Kenya’s breathtaking landscape from above, you’ll land in the centre of the action - right in the heart of Mara.
Our expert local guide will meet you there and your action-packed game viewing starts. Midday you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch and continue with your afternoon game drive. Expect to see a lot, and we mean really a lot! Grazers at their dinner, predators, lazily deciding on what to catch, birds, and stunning nature will fill your camera - make sure to save some space for tomorrow’s wonders.
DAY 2 - Maasai Mara National Reserve
A hearty breakfast at your lodge will prepare you for an impression-packed day, later supported by a picnic lunch en route. This full day in Mara promises grand sights, expect to encounter not only the Big five - lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, and leopard - but all the Big nine, including the cheetah, hippo, giraffe, and zebra. Antelopes, gazelles, bushbucks, elands, hartebeests, wildebeests, hyenas, mongooses, and many, many more among mammals will cross your way. Swinging monkeys at treetops, and eagles, hawks, and vultures dotting the sky will add to your photo album.
After a full day of exploring, we’ll bring you back to your lodge for dinner.
DAY 3 - Maasai Mara National Reserve - Nairobi
Wake up before dawn and experience sunrise in Mara. Predators are now active, coming back from their hunt, the sun still kind and caressing, before burning hot.
After breakfast, you’ll go on with your game drive and finish it with lunching in the wild. We’ll bring you back to the Mara airstrip for your afternoon flight to Nairobi, where our driver will meet you and bring you to your hotel or the international airport.
