Program

Day 1: Nairobi - Maasai Mara

On the first day, you will be picked up at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), your hotel, or your residence in the morning by Heritage of African Jungles Tours and Travel's driver guide and drive to Maasai Mara National Reserve in their customized seven-seater minibus. There will be a brief stopover at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint for photography and thereafter proceed to Narok town and enter the Hemingways to the country to Maasai Mara. You will arrive and check in at the camp or lodge for lunch. The meals are buffet enjoyed either in the dining or under the shade of indigenous trees. The culinary affair is indeed one to delight the senses.

Later, enjoy your first game drive in this world-famous reserve, which is an extension of Serengeti National Park of Tanzania. At some point during your stay in Mara, you will drive by the river, which is a great place to spot wildlife. This area is a photographers' delight where, with any luck, you will be able to take amazing pictures of the hippos and crocodiles in the water. The small size funnels animals into a tight space; park rules allow for offroad driving, which means that you can venture into plains with hundreds and thousands of animals. Finally, return to the camp or lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Maasai Mara

After breakfast, you will enjoy a full day game viewing in Maasai Mara where you will spend the whole day in the Maasai Mara National Reserve with both morning and afternoon game drives or alternatively a full day game viewing with picnic lunch. Maasai Mara National Reserve offers wonderful scenery and plenty of game. It is perhaps the only region left in Kenya where you may see animals in the same super-abundance as existed a century ago. Explore this part of the Northern Serengeti Ecosystem where the great wildebeest migration takes place. The plain is literally covered with these animals. Grunts and other animal sounds are heard, and territorial fights are commonplace. Soak in the abundance of untamed wilderness, fresh and natural scenery, filled with exotic wildlife during your expertly guided game drives enjoyed in open vehicles. For those interested in a more intimate encounter, you can go on a safe and exciting walking safari where you will have a chance to come face to face with nature’s beauty both in flora and fauna. Return to the camp for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3: Maasai Mara - Nairobi

After breakfast, there will be a morning game viewing in Maasai Mara then back to Nairobi, arriving late in the afternoon. The driver will drop you off at your hotel or transfer you to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) for your flight back home.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Heritage of African Jungles Tours and Travel will pick you up from the airport.

Driving from Nairobi to the Maasai Mara will take five to six hours on a scenic route. Traveling to the Mara is on a smooth tar half way to Narok Town. Here, there is a fuel station being a good stopover place for a drink, snack, and to use bathroom. The road from Narok Town to Sekenani Gate is a somewhat rough with the tarmac road ending. This dirt road is routinely graded and maintained in good condition. For more comfort, a good 4×4 off-road vehicle is perhaps best as it will make the road trip much easier.

For those who don’t fancy countryside driving, flying to the Maasai Mara can be an option. There are twice daily flights to / from Maasai Mara provided by AirKenya and Safarilink taking around 45 minutes. If you are in Mombasa, it would take you two hours to get to Maasai Mara by air with Mombasa based Mombasa Air Safari.

Airport: Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Airport transfer included: Jomo Kenyatta International Airport No additional charges. You can request this in the next step.
