Day 1: Nairobi to Masai mara national Reserve
Pick up at 7:00 a.m. from your hotel or place of stay, and after we depart for our trip south along the Great Rift Valley’s floor, with a pit stop at the View Point for a breath-taking view of the rift valley. You will take photographs and buy souvenirs while listening to African stories about the rift valley’s creation.
In the afternoon, we arrive at our tented camp in time for lunch before heading out on our first exciting game drive in the Masai Mara Game Reserve.
We return to the safari camp near Masai Mara Game Park after our game drive for dinner and an evening of relaxation. We sleep in permanent walk-in tents with en-suite showers, mosquito nets, and beds.
Day 2: Full day Masai mara
Our morning and afternoon game drives take us in search of Africa’s Big Five as well as the diverse wildlife that inhabits this vast Kenyan game reserve. The Mara presents spectacular orange-tinged sunsets that are well worth photographing on clear days.
The Masai Mara is home to a diverse range of animals, including Masai giraffes, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, gray jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, and wildebeests. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos can all be present in large groups. Lions have often seen either basking in the sun after a large meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Leopards and cheetahs are more difficult to spot, but they are fairly common.
The annual wildebeest exodus, known as the Great Migration, occurs in July and August, when millions of these grazers migrate north from the Serengeti in search of greener pastures, before returning south in October. Return back to our lodge for dinner and overnight

If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see the three big cats quickly.
