Nairobi – Masai Mara National Reserve – Day 1
At 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., you will be picked up from your hotel in Nairobi and depart for the Masai Mara National Reserve, via the viewpoint of the Great Rift Valley and Narok Town for refueling and lunch. Afterward, proceed to the world-famous game reserve, arriving at the camp at 2:00 p.m. You will then have a little siesta and proceed on the first introductory Kenya safari in the Masai Mara. Return back to the camp for dinner and overnight.
Masai Mara National Reserve – Day 2
After breakfast, you will proceed on a full day of Kenya safari within the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The landscape here is a scenic savannah grassland on endless rolling hills. The Masai Mara is the best park for wildlife safaris in Kenya as it has an extensive road and track network which allows for close range wildlife viewing and photography. There will be a break for picnic lunch at the hippo pool, looking out for hippos and Nile crocodiles. In addition, we will also visit the Mara River to view the wildebeests crossing the Nile crocodile infested river.
The great wildebeest migration rightfully deserves its standing as one of the natural world’s most astonishing spectacles. Comprising over 2 million wildebeests, zebras and antelopes, the Great Migration constitutes the last surviving multi-species migration on the planet. The spectacle happens each year between July and October as the trekking herd migrates from the Serengeti in the south into the Masai Mara following the rains.
The animals are closely followed by predators including lions, cheetah, wild-dogs, jackal and hyenas. In the Masai Mara you can also choose to take a balloon safari. This optional activity costs USD $450 and takes place in the morning. Aboard the hot-air balloon you get a new perspective on the landscape and the wildlife below. You glide where the wind takes you and after the flight Champaign breakfast is served under and Acacia tree.
