Witness an amazing annual event of the great migration. Naming one of the seven wonders of the world, this mass movement of wildlife is a spectacle like no other. Enjoy the most dramatic episode which is the perilous crossing of the Mara River by thunderous swarms of wildebeests. It’s the stage for a gripping, life-and-death scene where the wildebeests must survive the danger of the water’s currents, the stampede of its own herd, and the jaws of the Nile crocodiles that lie in wait. Experience one of the most thrilling moment in your life through this safari!
Accommodation is at a tented camp located in a natural setting near the Mara. You will stay in permanent tents with double beds and ensuite bathrooms with flush toilets, wash basins, and hot showers. These spacious, walk-in tents are fitted with mosquito nets and have private verandas for relaxing in the African bush.
Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, you will drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley. After that, you arrive at your overnight camp, located on the border of Masai Mara, in time for lunch. This afternoon you will explore Masai Mara on your first game drive, getting a taste of what this legendary game park has to offer.
You will stay in luxury safari tents overlooking the untamed savannah plains and woodlands of Masai Mara. At night, you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as the creatures of the wild communicate with each other in the darkness, more than enough reason to visit.
The next two days are spent game viewing in Kenya's finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara. Your morning and afternoon game drives will take you in search of Africa's Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara, you will see an abundance of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, and wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus, the great migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October. Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at extra cost. You will stay overnight at the same luxury tented camp near Masai Mara on day two and three.
You will depart from your safari camp and take a morning game drive through the Mara on day four. Then, you return to bustling Nairobi, arriving at about 2 p.m. in the afternoon. This unforgettable 4-day budget Maasai Mara camping safari ends upon arrival back in Nairobi.
On clear days, the Masai Mara offers fantastic orange tinged sunsets well-worth capturing on camera. The Masai Mara Game Reserve is 1,510 kilometer squares of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek Rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typically open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife.
