This 3 days Kenya Safari enables you to discover Maasai Mara is Kenya’s most celebrated game park. The safari offers the possibility of seeing “the big five” and many other species of game that are sought after by most of the tourists visiting Kenya. This is where the great wildebeest migration is a spectacle to behold for any would be visitor to Kenya mainly in July and August of each year. On the tour, we drive straight to our Permanent campsite along the Talek River, which borders the reserve. Safari accommodation is in large stand-up tents with beds. Showers are available in the camp and meals are served in the dinning mess or in the open.
We depart in the morning at 0930 hrs and drive down the Escarpment (stopping en-route to view) into and across the floor of the Great Rift Valley, past the Maasai town of Narok to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Lunch will be served on the way and we will enter the park via the Eastern park gate of Sekenani at approx. 1530 hrs. Enjoy a short game drive as we head to our campsite next to the North-eastern park gate of Talek. Here we have stand-up tents with beds for use, if not occupied, otherwise we pitch tents.
From this comfortable base camp, you will explore the park’s amazingly high concentration of game – a full day game drive with picnic lunch! The rolling grasslands of the Maasai Mara offer ideal game viewing and photographic opportunities and the grassy plains are broken by rocky outcrops which are favorite midday resting places for Lion. This is where millions of Wildebeest cross the Mara River from the Serengeti National park of Tanzania to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve of Kenya – an annual spectacular event, which brings along thousands of plains game and predators to the Mara, making the park a beehive of ‘wildlife activities’. Some other animals that could be found here include elephant, black rhino, buffalo, leopard, cheetah, wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. Hippo and crocodile abound in the muddy brown waters of the rivers, which traverse this reserve. Dinner and overnight camping as above
Depart Camp and drive through the northern part of the reserve viewing game as you proceed to the main Narok road. On reaching Narok, we halt to give you a chance to buy souvenirs, or just to have a cup of tea. Lunch will be served on the way and we arrive back in Nairobi by late afternoon.
