Accommodation

During this safari, you will stay in Masai Mara Sopa Lodge. Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Masai Mara Sopa Lodge was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs, and these stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their center.

The lodge has fifty guest cottages divided into two wings to either side of the main public areas. Each of these house two spacious guest rooms with queen and king size beds, mosquito nets, electronic safes, dressing tables, en-suite bathrooms, and sheltered verandas that all have views over the gardens and the game reserve beyond.

Six of the cottages contain two suites with larger bedrooms and bathrooms, and both indoor and outdoor seating areas. In addition, the honeymoon suite has an extremely large, luxuriously appointed bedroom with a king size bed, dressing table, and indoor seating area. Its lavishly appointed bathroom contains both a shower and a sunken bath, and its sheltered veranda offers some of the most magnificent views available over the African landscapes below.

Program

Day 1: Nairobi - Mara

Today, you will be picked up from your hotel at 7:00 a.m. and travel towards the fertile highlands of Kenya leading down via the Great Rift Valley escarpment, on a road built by Italian prisoners of war during World War II.

Have a glimpse for the attractive chapel they built at the foot of the escarpment and pass via the magnificent Longonot earth satellite station as you proceed across the Valley to Narok, experiencing breathtaking views of the world's greatest land rift and moving across acres of barley and wheat before you reach the Maasai Mara in time for lunch.

There will be an afternoon game drive within the reserve as the rains brings the grasslands of Maasai Mara to life. The vast plains rumble with thunder of approaching hooves as one and a half million wildebeest migrate up north east into Maasai Mara from July until the end of September. The great migration is a vision beyond relief, as it is one of the world's most impressive spectacles staged every year in Kenya; directed by raw forces of nature.

You will appreciate the park's high animal concentration and abundance of black maned lions, herds of topi roan antelope, cheetah, common zebra, and coke's hartebeest, while, with some luck, you will spot leopards and rhinos. You will be returning to the lodge for dinner as the sun sets. You will spend the night in Mara Sopa Lodge.

Day 2: Mara

Today, you will join a very early morning game drive in the Maasai Mara. This is the ideal time to see game as temperatures are cooler and hopefully lions, cheetahs, and leopards will be roaming the vast grasslands in search of prey.

Later, you will return to the lodge for breakfast. The rest of the morning will be at leisure or you can partake in optional activities, such as a visit to Maasai village to see their nomadic life. After lunch at the lodge, there is a chance to relax by the swimming pool before an evening game drive before returning to the lodge for dinner. You will spend the night in Mara Sopa Lodge.

Day 3: Mara - Nairobi

Leave for one last early morning game drive that promises to be thrilling. Return to the lodge for breakfast, check out, and leave for Nairobi to arrive in the late afternoon.
