Program

Day 1: Nairobi - Maasai Mara National Reserve

Depart from Nairobi at 08:30 and drive through the viewpoint of the Great Rift Valley to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. There will be another stop-over for lunch in Narok town before we continue our drive to the Masai Mara National Reserve. Arrive at your camp for check-in and later in the afternoon depart for your first game drive in the Maasai Mara.

Discover Maasai Mara National Reserve, immerse yourself in this prime wildlife area and connect with nature on every level. Variety is what distinguishes the exceptional from the mundane and this reserve offers copious amounts of variation. This is the best time of day to view nocturnal hunters who prepare for their nightly expeditions. Watering holes are also usually busy just before sunset as animals such as hippos return to their resting spots while others congregate to drink before retiring for the night. Later in the evening return to your budget camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Full day exploring Maasai Mara National Reserve

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. Maasai Mara National Reserve is the most famous and most visited reserve in Kenya. Covering an area of 1510 square kilometers, the Masai 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, impala, Kirk’s dik-dik, bushbuck, topi, buffalo, Ellipsen waterbuck, eland, and giraffe, all are there. Famous for its rich wildlife, the Maasai Mara is home to not only the Big Five (elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino, and leopard) but also many birds (over 500 species of birds have been recorded). Along the rivers, crocodiles, and hippos lie in wait.

Day 3: Maasai Mara National Reserve - Nakuru

Start your day with an early morning game drive between 06:30 and 09:00, composed of vast rolling plains and hills, the Maasai Mara is dotted with umbrella thorn acacias and thorny thickets. In the Maa language, Mara means “spotted” and may refer to the colorful landscapes.

After your morning game drive, return to the camp for breakfast after which you will depart for Nakuru with en route lunch. A highlight of the journey is the first glimpse of the Mount Suswa and Lake Naivasha. Mount Longonot and Hell’s Gate National Park may be glimpsed to the north. Arrive in Nakuru then check-in at your budget hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park - Nairobi

You will have a morning game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park after your breakfast. Lake Nakuru is a soda lake whose waters are often covered by a living carpet of thousands of flamingos and plains that are home to the lion, rhino, leopard, and large herds of waterbuck.
