Fall in love with Masai Mara - Three days by road from Nairobi
Masai Mara (Maasai Mara) is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves and it is one of the best-known and most popular reserves. Masai 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.

DAY 1 - NAIROBI - MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
We will pick you at your hotel in Nairobi early in the morning and head for the drive to Masai Mara. The ride takes five to six hours, but the picturesque, changing surroundings will make the journey go by like lightning - only your hunger will remind you that it’s time for lunch. And just then you’ll arrive at Mara. After settling your stomach with a delicious lunch, you’ll head for your afternoon and evening 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 - MASAI 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 - MASAI 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 a game drive and slowly wave Mara goodbye. En-route to Nairobi, you’ll enjoy a picnic lunch, before returning to your hotel in the late afternoon.
