Day 1: Nairobi - Masai Mara

You will be picked up from the airport if arriving the same day or picked up from your hotel as at 08:00 after the breakfast. Thereafter, depart and drive down the escarpment via the floor of the Great Rift Valley. On this day, you will stop at Great Rift Valley viewpoint for about 30 minutes. This will allow you to take some photos as well as have an information how the Rift Valley was formed. It’s also at this place where you will have also to visit the washrooms just in case. Then, you will proceed on to Narok Town. This normally takes about three hours to get to this famous Maasai Town. You shall have your lunch in this town at a hotel known as transit or similar. Then after lunch, proceed to Maasai Mara which normally is like two hours’ drive. On arrival, check in the camp and then proceed for the afternoon game drive. This will take you until 18:30.

You will go for full-day morning and afternoon game drives. You will enjoy a picnic lunch with the hippos and crocodiles at the hippo pool in Mara River. Although July, August, and September are the months when the Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebra, there is also resident wildlife year round. Maasai Mara National Reserve is the most famous and most visited reserve in Kenya. Covering an area of 1,510 square kilometers, the Maasai Mara Reserve is, in fact, the extension in Kenyan territory of the vast Serengeti Park in Tanzania. Together, they constitute a huge ecosystem in which animals move freely. All large African animals are present. Thomson’s and Grant's gazelles, impalas, Kirk’s dik-dik, bushbuck, topi, buffalos, ellipsen waterbucks, elands and giraffe, all are there. Famous for its rich wildlife, the Maasai Mara is home not only to the Big Five (elephants, lions, buffalos, rhinos, and leopards) but also many birds (over 500 species of birds have been recorded). Along the rivers, crocodiles and hippos lie in wait.
