Details of Three Day Maasai Mara Flying Safari
DAY 1 - NAIROBI - MAASAI MARA
You'll be pick up from the airport or your hotel early in the morning and taken to nearby Wilson Airport. Here, you'll board a light aircraft and depart for the world-famous Maasai Mara game reserve.
Your Shadows of Africa driver will meet you out in the park when you land, taking you to your lodge to drop off your belongings via the scenic route so you don't waste a second of your time in the park.
Enjoy lunch at the lodge and unwind before heading back out into the park for an afternoon game drive.
DAY 2 - MAASAI MARA
Wake with the dawn to witness a sunrise out on the Masai Mara. As the sun sets fire to the savannah, you'll have the chance to watch predators such as leopards and lions out on the hunt while the air is still cool.
Alternatively, you may wish to take to the skies with an unforgettable hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara. You'll get to soar over the savannah at dawn before settling down on the plains for a champagne breakfast out among the animals.
Ask your safari expert about how you can add a Maasai Mara balloon safari to your trip.
After a late breakfast, you'll have the choice to either relax at your lodge until lunch and then head out into the park or take a picnic lunch and head out into the park for a day of discovery as you track the movements of the Wildebeest Migration (seasonal) or go in search of the Big Five.
DAY 3 - MAASAI MARA - NAIROBI
You'll enjoy another morning game drive before returning to Nairobi on your scheduled flight.
