Pick up from the airport then you will join an amazing, panoramic voyage through the enigmatic Great Rift Valley - arrive at the world famous Maasai Mara. Stop briefly enroute at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint for stunning views of what is the world's largest valley. Afternoon, enjoy a game viewing drive in this world renown reserve. Maasai Mara is a magnificent landscape of open plains bisected by the Mara River and its tributaries, and punctuated by marshes and forests. Certainly the most frequented game reserve in Kenya, this 650 sq kilometer reserve supports the highest density of game to be seen anywhere. During the seasonal migrations, Maasai Mara is home to up to a million wildebeest and an equally impressive number of zebras that move into the area from neighboring Serengeti National Park, in Tanzania. The reserve is home to all the “big five” and it is also possible to observe; baboon, eland, ostrich, bat-eared fox, jackal and cheetah. The rivers abound with hippos and crocodiles. Maasai Mara topography creates a unique bio-diverse area, providing guests with the opportunity to venture into the savannah covered with hundreds or even thousands of animals of many different species including lions, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, wildebeests, gazelles, and zebras. This is one of the most spectacular sights in the world. The vast, open grasslands of the Serengeti-Mara are home to over 3 million large mammals. These include over 1.4 million wildebeest, which migrate in an enormous, straggling herd each year between the southern parts of the Serengeti to the northern part and back again. With them move other herbivores such as gazelles and zebra, also looking for the best grass. Along the way they provide food for big predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs. Here we learn about and see first hand the intricate web of dependency that binds the different species together. Meals and overnight at the Lodge/ Camp.
Enjoy the entire day in the Maasai Mara with early morning game drive, optional balloon safari at an extra cost and an afternoon game drive. The Mara is also noted for its abundance of lions - particularly the superb black manned males. You'll see lots of elephants here often in large herds, as well as - if you're lucky - leopard, cheetah and rhino. All of the Big Five are residents. You're sure to see the African buffalo. Get the cameras ready, stock up on film and enjoy yourselves! All Meals and overnight is at Lodge or Camp. The Maasai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya’s most precious wildlife sanctuary. This is big game country and long famed as one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of game. Plains game is found here in staggering numbers, which in turn supports a tremendous predator population. Optional Activities: Balloon Safari, Bush Breakfast/Dinner, Visit to the Maasai Village. These vast grasslands are rich with herds of zebras, giraffes, gazelles, and topis. With huge grazing herds, voracious attendant predators, including Africa’s largest population of lions, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, rhino and bountiful birdlife, the Mara is the staging ground for the annual wildebeest great migration. Hippo and crocodile abound in the muddy brown waters of the rivers, which traverse this reserve. The hippos keep you company and only say “Kwaheri” after you have had enough.
After breakfast, say 'Kwaheri' - to Masai Mara and leisurely drive back to Nairobi and drop off at the airport for your departure. End of safari!
