    The Masai Mara Game Reserve is situated on the South-Western region of Kenya and is one of the most prestigious Game Parks in the world. Your journey from you hotel takes you through the scenic Rift Valley. While travelling through the Rift valley escarpments, you can opt to take a break for a photography moment at the Rift-Valley’s viewpoint. This 5 and a half hour journey across Kenya’s scenic Rift valley floor is truly memorable. You will get to spot monkeys, zebras, antelopes before even getting to the Masai Mara.

    Upon your arrival, you will proceed to check-in at your tented camp in the Masai Mara. We choose the best accommodation facilities for you, the hotels or tented camps we opt for are in close proximity to the Masai Mara Game Reserve and therefore ideal while going for game-drives. After your delicious lunch at your hotel, you will proceed for an afternoon game viewing inside the Masai Mara. During this time of day, prides of lions are seen basking under the tall Savannah grasslands while cheetahs can be spotted stalking their next prey.

    You will spend the following 4 days in the Masai Mara.

    The Game park is home to the Big 5 wildlife that include; buffalo, lion, leopard, Rhino and elephants, they are Kenya’s largest animals. Other than the big 5, the Mara ecosystem is home to various wildlife and bird species. Including; giraffes, hippos, hyena, wild dogs, crocodiles while the birds include Ostrich,Grebes, Heron, Secretary birds, Vultures, Eagles among many more bird species.

    The main attraction in this esteemed game park is the annual wildebeest migration safari. This migration occurs every year from July to September, with more than 500,000 wildebeest migrating from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania crossing over to the Masai Mara Game Reserve via the Mara River and also Talek River. The dramatic scenes are when the wildebeest and zebras cross over and the predators are hot on their heels to catch their next meal. It is truly an ideal photographic moment while on this safari.

    It is truly the survival of the fittest.

    After the scenic holiday safari in the Masai Mara, the 5 days tour comes to a close with a drop off to your Nairobi hotel or to the JKIA airport in Nairobi

    Schedule

    Day 1:

    Arrival- Nairobi

    Meet and assist services at Jomo Kenyatta international airport and transfer to Best Western Meridian hotel for overnight stay in readiness for your Wildebeest migration safari
    Day 2:

    Nairobi-Masai Mara National Reserve

    At the start of our Masai Mara Wildebeest migration safari your tour guide will pick you up from Best Western Meridian Nairobi hotel at 07:30 hrs - a safari briefing session with our tour consultant then drive to the Masai Mara Game Reserve as you enjoy the scenic views of the Great Rift Valley - Masai Mara game reserve is the northern part of the Serengeti, one of Kenya's most favored game-viewing areas. The reserve covers 700 square miles of magnificent wilderness. It is the Africa of the imagination; endless reaches of acacia-dotted grasslands studded with hazy hills. Afternoon game drive to see the sun downer as you trail the Big 5 i.e. Lions in large prides, Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and numerous plain game. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Sopa Lodge or similar
    Day 3

    Masai Mara National Reserve - Mara River Crossing

    On day 3 of our Masai Mara wildebeest Migration safari you will have early breakfast then head out with a picnic lunch to the Mara River, hoping to see a dramatic river crossing or two. It is quite some sight to see the massed herds take a leap of faith into the Mara or Talek rivers with the Nile crocodiles lying in wait for them. Return to Mara Sopa Lodge or similar for dinner and overnight stay
    Day 4:

    Masai Mara National Reserve- big 5, Photography safari

    We will spend the day exploring and taking photographs in Masai Mara, with its abundance of large mammals and diverse bird life. We have the option to either have full and complete day out in the field when lunch can be served out on the savannah or we can return to the lodge for lunch. Big cats are a very prominent feature of the Masai Mara and also include Cheetahs and Leopards, both of which are fairly straightforward to find here. We are definitely at ‘Predator Central’ here and there can be few, if any wildlife spectacles anywhere in the world that can rival the tension, drama and emotion of a Mara crossing. As many as a million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra attempt this epic journey each year. Watching as thousands of wildebeest and zebra gather at a crossing point you can almost feel the pressure build on the animals at the front as they consider the right time to attempt to cross the dangerous waters of the crocodile-infested Mara River. It is, however, a time of plenty for the gigantic Nile Crocodiles that live in the river and lie in wait as hundreds of thousands of animals head north from the Serengeti Plains to feed on the lush Mara grasslands. The foaming waters, noise and drama of a Mara crossing has to be experienced to be believed and offers dramatic action photo opportunities. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Sopa Lodge or similar
    Day 5:

    Masai Mara-Nairobi

    After breakfast we check out of the lodge and embark on a final game viewing in the park en route to Nairobi, arriving Nairobi by 1500 hrs where our Masai Mara wildebeest migration safari ends.
