Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara - Kenya
Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, we drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley. We arrive at our luxury tented camp near Masai Mara in time for lunch.
Then we take our first thrilling game drive in the Masai Mara game reserve, one of East Africa's top safari destinations. The Mara reserve incorporates 1510 km² of incredible, wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife.
Returning from our first foray into Masai Mara we have dinner and relax under the stars, falling asleep to the sounds of the bush-

Day 2: Masai Mara Game Reserve - Kenya
The next day is spent game viewing in Kenya's finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve.
Our morning and afternoon game drives take us in search of Africa's Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange tinged sunsets well-worth capturing on camera.
Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of greener grass before turning south again in October.
Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at extra cost.
Day 3: Masai Mara to Nairobi - Kenya
We depart from our safari camp and take a morning game drive through the Masai Mara Reserve on day three.
Then we return to bustling Nairobi, arriving at about 15:00 in the afternoon. This unforgettable 3-Day Masai Mara Safari ends upon arrival back in Nairobi.
