Day 1. Nairobi-Maasai Mara

You will depart Nairobi in the early morning for Maasai Mara national reserve.

Renowned for its uniqueness in wildlife and birdlife diversity, the Maasai Mara is a hotspot to anyone dreaming of an amazing wildlife experience.

On your way, there will be stopover just before Mai Mahiu for a spectacular view of the Great Rift Valley`s viewpoint which runs from Lebanon`s Beqaa valley in Asia to Mozambique in southeast of Africa, for an estimated 7ooo km. After a short photo session, drive to the Mara will continue.

Arriving approximately around 1300hrs at your lodge/camp, lunch will be served and after which you will rest for about 2hrs to recover from the long drive`s fatigue and later head out for an evening game drive. This will be timely considering the animals too have a tendency to being inactive during the hottest part of the day in the savannah.

The evening game drive will mark the beginning of your wildlife safari experience.

Renowned for its abundance and diversity in wildlife, the Mara game drive will give you a wonderful experience, unbelievably closely mingling with the animals as they roam through the jungle carefree in their activities. Some of the animals found here are the members of the big five; African elephant, buffaloes, leopard, rhino and the lion, amongst other carnivorous like the cheetah, jackals, wild dogs, hyenas and caracals, just to highlight but a few. A wide range of antelope species and birdlife are also found here.

Thereafter, you will return to your lodge/camp.

For those who visit during the wondrous Wildebeest migration, which is the annual exodus of thousands of wildebeest and zebras from the southern Serengeti national park in Tanzania to the Mara in search of greener pastures, you will have an exclusive encounter as you witness one of the world wonders.
