On your way there, you will pass through Kenya's Rift Valley escarpments which offer some of the most breathtaking views. In Kenya, the Rift Valley landscape comprises of escarpments, ravines, flatlands, and soda lakes that mark much of East Africa.
For this safari adventure, you will be provided three nights accommodation at Ol Moran Camp Maasai Mara. It is an exclusive tented camp for those who want to be true to wild experience. The camp is situated within the Masai Mara Eco-system and on the banks of Ololaimutia River which is a watering point for most of the wild animals especially elephants, buffaloes, antelopes, etc.
There are 15 spacious and exclusive tents with a double and twin beds available in a serene wildlife environment to savor. The game drive is done on open custom made 4x4 Toyota Landcruisers and open Landrovers.
You will depart at Africa Remote Safaris' office in the morning then you will drive down the escarpment via the floor of the Great Rift Valley. You will camp at the permanent Talek riverside campsite situated at the edge of the park. There, you will have stand-up tents with beds for use, as well as small wood cabins for those who want more comfort. Hot showers are available in the camp and meals are served in the dining mess or in the open.
In the night, you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as they communicate with each other in the darkness. More than a reason to visit though, the ultimate action there is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August, when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.
You will spend the day game viewing and relaxing in the campsite grounds. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange tinted sunsets and you will definitely want to capture this moment while sipping on a sundowner back at the campsite. The Mara Reserve is 1,510 square kilometers of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers.
Wherever you go in the Mara, you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, gray jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, and wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos also exist 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 are still reasonably common.
Balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savanna plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for a beautiful champagne breakfast. These trips can be arranged upon booking.
You will depart the camp and drive through the northern part of the reserve viewing game as you proceed to the main Narok road where you will stop to give you a chance to buy souvenirs, or just to have a cup of tea. You will return to Nairobi by late afternoon.
