This safari will begin with a journey through the Great Rift Valley, which offers breathtaking views, to the beautiful Masai Mara. When we arrive at the Masai Mara Park, we’ll spend our time looking for the wildlife that makes it one of Africa’s best-known national parks. The Masai Mara is well-known for its large cat population as well as its role in the Great Wildebeest Migration, a wildlife spectacle unlike any other on the planet.
Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara
We depart Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, and drive down the escarpment via the Great Rift Valley’s scenic floor.
We arrive at our overnight camp in the afternoon, just in time for lunch. Our safari camp is tucked away in the cool shade of indigenous trees near the Masai Mara Game Park, providing an oasis from the African heat. We sleep in self-contained permanent tents with feature beds and en suite bathroom facilities. In the afternoon, we go on our first exciting game drive in the Masai Mara game reserve, one of East Africa’s top safari destinations. A chorus of different animal sounds can be heard at night as they communicate with one another in the darkness – more than enough reason to pay a visit.
Masai Mara Game Reserve is a Kenya safari destination.
The Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s best wildlife park, is where you’ll spend the next day game viewing. Our morning and afternoon game drives take us in search of Africa’s Big Five as well as the diverse wildlife that inhabits this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Mara offers spectacular orange-tinged sunsets that are well worth photographing.
Following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in Kenya, the Mara reserve is 1510 km2 of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland. Its allure can be seen in a single glance; it’s a typical open savannah with a plethora of incredible wildlife. Wildlife such as Masai giraffes, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, and wildebeest can be found in abundance throughout the Masai Mara. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos can all be found in large groups. Lions are also frequently seen.
Kenya safari from Masai Mara to Nairobi
After breakfast, we leave our safari camp for a morning game drive through the Masai Mara Reserve.
Then it’s back to bustling Nairobi, where we arrive around 15:00 p.m. The 3-Day Budget Masai Mara Camping Safari comes to an end when you return to Nairobi.
