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.

Day 1: Masai Mara

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.

Day 2 and 3: Masai Mara

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.

Day 4: Nairobi

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.

This safari tour will be held at Maasai Mara National Reserve, the most famous park in Kenya for safari adventures. Masai Mara National Reserve is Kenya's finest wildlife reserve. Everything about this reserve is outstanding. The wildlife is abundant and the gentle rolling grasslands ensure that animals are never out of sight. Birds, too, are prolific. Including migrants, well over 450 species have been recorded, among them, 57 species of birds of prey.

The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well-spread rainfall year round. Rain, when it falls almost always chooses the late afternoon or night. Between July and October, when the great wildebeest migration is in the Masai Mara National Reserve, the sensation is unparalleled.

Masai Mara is one of the best plains' game reserve where you can actually encounter a live Discovery Channel, a haven for viewing a congregation of all sorts of animals in a five-mile radius. A pride of lions can be spotted ready to make a run for a gazelle, a cheetah and its cub taking a nap on a rock, a pair of ostriches walking the open stretches of the savanna, or a gazelle giving birth.

    "We booked our safari with Africa Remote Safaris, and dealt with Steve. We were very pleased! I asked a million questions before leaving and he was very patient to answer them. He gave us Hamza as our tour guide and we had him for 2 weeks. He became part of our family. He had a good expertise, good sense of humor, spoke English well, and found us tons of wildlife. Everyone should do a safari at least once in their life. We went for 2 weeks but I am sure that if you went for 7 or 9 days and visited 3 parks it would be sufficient (we found the Serengeti to be a must)."

    "Tarangire was a good park too. I was reluctant to deal with an African tour company (hence the million questions I asked), but after shopping around extensively I went ahead and took the risk and I saved a lot of money by dealing directly. I found Africa Remote Safaris to be very honest. We chose a variety of camps and lodges and we stayed at a Sopa Lodge and Serena Hotels. They were very good! We also stayed at some tented camps such as Migunga, Tarangire, and Ngorongoro. Although they are small, not 5-star, and don't offer big buffets like the lodges, we loved them! They are quaint, have a great atmosphere, and they are so quiet. The food was always good (and I work as a chef). They have beautiful decks around the tent and usually a grass roof around the outside and, most importantly, have a fireplace outdoors. We felt very safe."

    "Maasai Mara's vastness is huge. Pictures don't do it justice. It is a phenomenal place to absorb the wildlife wonders of our planet. There are multitudes of birds plus all of the other animals such as elephants, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, leopards, crocodiles, hippos, zebras, warthogs, reedbucks, hyenas, wildebeest and on and on. We spent three nights in the park. The location should be based on the migrational patterns. We use Africa Remote Safaris for our ground arrangements. They have an outstanding service with great support staff. In addition, Shafiy was our guide and he was the best."

    "I can talk about my safari in the Serengeti all day long but I'll keep it brief for you. For us, this was an unforgettable, amazing and educational experience for which we have Africa Remote Safaris to thank. They planned an experience we could only dream of. We got to see the migration and that in itself was fascinating, watching over a million wildebeests migrate between the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara in such an orderly fashion. Our guide was very intelligent and answered all our questions, his English was very good and he was very patient. We would often stop for hours at one point just to observe a particular animal. For me, the Serengeti offered it all but I found that a good guide is very important if you want a truly amazing experience. Our guide gave us lots of information we would never have thought to ask. I learned so much about wildlife and nature that it has had a real influence on my interests and the things I now watch on TV. I'll give you an example; we were sat at a spot in the jeep when we saw a group of wildebeest and zebra running together but then suddenly parted. The first thing our guide said was, did you notice how they suddenly parted? It's because the former has a better sense of smell than the latter, there must be predators close by. So we drove around keeping close to the vicinity and lo and behold there was a pride of lions. It's fascinating times like this with our guide that fill our memories and I could just keep going on and on. Once again big thanks to Africa Remote Safaris who made it a truly amazing experience for us with an added personal touch and it brings a smile to my face whenever I think about it."
