Masai Mara safari in 3 days

Day 1 Nairobi – Masai Mara Safari
You will be picked from your residence in Nairobi or pick up point at 8.00am in the morning by our tour van and drive through Westlands to the Rift Valley point where you will have a stopover, to look at this natural wonder, the Rift Valley. Continue past Kedong Valley, through Suswa Plains to Narok. Here you will still have a stop over to have a look at the Maasai town. From there you will proceed to the world renowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

This game reserve is considered by many to be the “jewel and highlight of any safari”. This is mainly because of its abundance of game, and the fact that it supports one of Africa's highest concentrations of predators. It harbors around 22 families of lions and over 3,000 elephants.
You will arrive in time for lunch at the lodge. Early afternoon will be spent at leisure in the lodge’s swimming pool or having a walk around the lodge, to be followed by game viewing drive later in the evening.  Animals expected to be seen here include lion, hyena, cheetah, elephant and giraffes among others.  Dinner, entertainment and overnight will be at Meals and overnight at Camp/ Lodge.

Day 2 – Masai Mara Safari
After a hefty buffet breakfast in the Camp you will embark on a full day game viewing drive with parked lunch in search for animals not seen the previous day..  Enroute you will see the Kenya-Tanzania border that marks one side of the Mara Triangle. You will also drive to the famous Mara River in search of hippos and crocodiles; here you will also see the crossing point for wildebeests when migrating from the neighboring Serengeti plains and have a stopover for lunch. Hopefully you will get to see the animals cross.  You will proceed on a game drive in search of animals not seen so far.  Dinner, entertainment and overnight will be at Camp / Lodge.

Day 3 Nairobi
This day you will have an early morning game drive and after have breakfast at the hotel. After checking out you will have a Maasai cultural Visit which will enlighten you on the culture and lifestyle of the Maasai people who, like their northern cousins - the Samburu - have adopted to live harmoniously with the wildlife. You will leave the Mara plains etching the sceneries in your memory and drive back to Nairobi with a brief stop at Narok and continue past Suswa, Mai Mahiu to arrive in Nairobi where you will be dropped at your residence.
