The animals includes the Big 5; Lion, Buffalo, Rhino, Leopard and the Elephant. The park also has many other animals including hyenas, gazelles, antelopes, wildebeests, zebras, giraffes etc.

Program

When you think of going on a safari to Africa, the first thing that will come to your mind may be the majestic wildebeest migration. The experience of seeing the flocks of wild animals on the same ground can’t be explained in words.

East African Exotic Safaris offers an exceptional three days at Masai Mara safari tours to witness the abundant wildlife and the chance to observe the great migration of wildebeest. Enjoy seeing a wide variety of animals in the African wilds with East African Exotic Safaris!

Day 1 - Nairobi to Mara

You will be picked from Nairobi at 8:00 a.m. by the tour van and drive through Westlands to the Rift Valley view point where you will have a stopover. 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.

After arriving at Mara, you will check in to the camp for lunch. You will have time to familiarize yourself with the new environment before embarking on an evening game drive. Dinner, entertainment, and overnight will be at Basecamp Maasai Mara.

Day 2 - Maasai Mara

After a hefty buffet breakfast in the camp, you will embark on a game viewing drive in search for wild animals. You will drive to the famous Mara River in search of hippos and crocodiles. If your visit falls between July and September, you will witness the great migration of the wildebeest from Serengeti plains to Maasai Mara through Mara River.

This annual event was named as one of the seven new wonders of the world. You will also see the Kenya-Tanzania border that marks one side of the Mara Triangle. You will have your lunch in the park and proceed on a game drive in search of animals not seen so far. Dinner, entertainment, and overnight at Basecamp Maasai Mara. Today's meal plan includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Day 3 - Maasai Mara to Nairobi

You will be woken up at around 6:00 a.m. to embark on an early morning game drive and then return to the lodge for breakfast. This is the best time to have game drives since the animals both nocturnal and diurnal are active before the sun sends them off under the shades. After your hefty breakfast, you will load your luggage into the vans bid Maasai Mara Kwaheri goodbye and proceed to Nairobi to arrive in the afternoon.

Included excursions

On this safari, you will visit Maasai Mara Game Reserve to see abundant wildlife. If you visit Maasai Mara during July to September, and if the timing is right, you will witness the migration of more than one and a half millions wildebeest from Serengeti plains to Maasai Mara through Mara River.

The safari will take place in Maasai Mara National Reserve, Maasai Mara. This reserve is home to over 410 species of birds and 60 species of raptors. It is also one of the world’s finest game viewing destinations.
