Program

Day 1: Nairobi to Maasai Mara

You will be picked up from your hotel / Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) by Seremara Safaris’ driver guide and you will be transferred to Wilson Airport (WIL) for a 45-minute flight over the Rift Valley to Olkiombo Airstrip. You will be met by Basecamp’s guide who will transfer you to the camp. Hop on one of the tailor-made 4×4 safari Land Cruisers for a safari game drive en-route to Basecamp Masai Mara.

Maasai Mara Game Reserve is one of the most well-known parks in Africa. Almost all the iconic wildlife animals can be viewed here. This is also where the famous wildebeest and zebra migration from Serengeti to Maasai Mara takes place between July and October. Along the way, you will have your first encounter with the wildlife Masai Mara has to offer. Look out for the Big Five which includes a lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhino.

You will arrive at Basecamp for lunch. Set on the bank of the Talek River, Basecamp Maasai Mara location is spectacular, with the great Mara plains surrounding the camp and the river in front of each tent. After lunch, you will settle into your tents.

Later in the afternoon, you will join your Maasai guide for a camp walk along the Talek River path. Your guide will show you some of the operational elements that have made Basecamp one of the leading pioneers in the responsible tourism industry.

At around 16:00, stroll across the private suspension bridge to meet your Maasai guide for your afternoon safari game drive. While you venture out, you have a chance to see many animals and beautiful landscape of Maasai Mara. As the sun sets, you will enjoy a classic Basecamp sundowner under an acacia tree before returning to the lodge for dinner.

As you rest around the fireplace, listen to your Maasai guide tell stories about their culture as you reflect on the experiences of the day.

Day 2: Maasai Mara to Nairobi

Wake up early for a cup of coffee followed by a morning safari game drive. Enjoy the fresh breeze at the break of dawn and marvel as the bush comes to life in the early morning hours. Throughout the year, Masai Mara is a place of natural drama, color, and life. Enjoy watching Masai Mara wildlife as well as a variety of birds in their natural habitat. See the wildebeest in their thousands, the beautiful zebras, and the graceful giraffes.

After breakfast, pack your personal belongings, bid your Maasai host goodbye and check out to transfer to the airstrip with a game drive en-route. Arrive in Nairobi in the early afternoon for your international flight connection or back to your hotel, marking the end of your Kenyan holiday with Seremara Safaris.

Alternatively, wake at dawn for a final morning game drive. Witness how the savannah springs to life as the sun rises. Enjoy a picnic breakfast overlooking the Mara plains before returning to Basecamp Masai Mara. After lunch, gather your things and say your goodbyes.

Reach Olkiombo Airstrip in time for your scheduled 4 p.m. flight, the perfect departure time for international connections or for continuing your African adventure. Upon arrival in Nairobi, a driver will pick you up and transfer you to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) or your hotel in Nairobi.

Location

The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further.

The undeniable highlight of the Masai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration, traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet - with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve.

Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.
