The masai mara, as its often called by residents is more than just the most popular wildlife park in the country; in many cases it is the reason why people come to Kenya in the first place. One look is enough to explain its appeal: this is classic African savanna, and the sheer density of wildlife is amazing.
Have breakfast in the morning before a morning drive from Nairobi into the Masai Mara with its amazing concentration of wildlife and outstanding scenery. Travel through the Great Rift Valley on to Kenya’s premier wildlife reserve. In the afternoon you will arrive in the area, and get settled at your safari camp. You will go for a late afternoon wildlife viewing drive in the finest game sanctuary in Kenya, noted for its lions. The varied wildlife and natural environment come together to provide a spectacular safari experience. Drive back to the lodge for Dinner and overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge or similar.
Set off early for a morning game drive to witness the animal kingdom at its most active hour. Search for the park’s large populations of wildebeest, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion, leopard and elephants, Hippos, Cheetah, Zebra, Impala, gazelles, hartebeest, warthog, ostrich, Topi and Masai Giraffe.
Like in the Serengeti in Tanzania, the wildebeest are the dominant inhabitant of the Masai Mara, and their numbers are estimated in millions.
In the afternoon, Visit the local Maasai village for a Maasai cultural tour. Learn about the Maasai and interact with the local Maasai people. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Up relatively early to visit a watering hole while on a morning game drive, a perfect time for wildlife photography. Return to the lodge for breakfast and drive back to Nairobi which marks the end of this safari.
