3 DAYS MASAI MARA
Day 1 Nairobi - Masai Mara
7.00a.m. Pick from your hotel and depart for the Masai Mara Game Reserve. There will be a stop at the view-point of the Great Rift whose view of the valley below is splendidly panoramic and another at Narok town for re-fuelling. Lunch on arrival, and after a brief siesta proceed for a game drive in this world famous reserve, owing to its high animal concentration and abundance and its yearly seasonal migration of wildebeest and zebra. Dinner and overnight at the campsite or Mara Sopa Lodge.
Day 2 Masai Mara
Wake up to a cup of tea or coffee and set out on a sunrise game drive.
The Mara is magical in the morning: the birds are singing, the morning air smells fresh and cool, and the wildlife is just waking up to greet the day. Zebra’s frolic and greet each other, a pair of jackals prance through the grass in search of mice or a rabbit. Baboons charter noisily and giraffe watch you as they nibble on their breakfast of acacia leaves. You may even come across a family feeding together on last night’s kill, or a leopard snoozing on a tree. Return to the lodge for breakfast followed by a further game drive. Lunch at the camp or lodge then a leisure break during which you can visit a local Masai village at extra cost. Wind up the day with a late afternoon / early evening game drive, returning to the campsite or Mara Sopa Lodge for dinner and overnight. (Alternatively, you will depart the lodge after breakfast taking a picnic lunch with you to spend the day tracking game with your guide to return to the campsite or lodge in the evening).
