Road Trip to Masai Mara Game Reserve (Non Residents) - 3 Days

3Days/2Nights Road Trip to Masai Mara Game Reserve. This is a special package valid from 1st July ’18 – 30th September ’18. During this time Maasai Mara plays host to one of the most spectacular wildlife shows on earth the great annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra as they enter the Mara ecosystem from Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania.

All members of the "Big Five" are found in the Masai Mara, although the population of black rhinoceros is severely threatened, with a population of only 37 recorded in 2000. Hippopotami are found in large groups in the Masai Mara and Talek rivers. Cheetah are also found, although their numbers are also threatened, chiefly due to tourist disruption of their daytime hunting. As mentioned above, the plains between the Mara river and the Esoit Oloololo Escarpment are probably the best area for game viewing, in particular regarding lion and cheetah.

Day 1
Nairobi- Mara

You will be picked up from your hotel/Airport early in the morning and depart for the famous Masai Mara. Lunch will be served at the Camp. After lunch an exploratory drive around the 1,792 sq. km. game park with its low hills and Savannah type rolling grasslands, gallery forest on the Mara River and its tributaries. Get introduced to the herbivores, elephant, rhino, buffalo, and the variety of antelopes, the Masai giraffe and the Burchell zebra. The carnivores are the black mane lion, cheetah and leopard. Also to be seen are the hunting dog, the jackal and hyena; the largest bird, the Masai ostrich, the Secretary bird, the crested crane and saddle-bill stork. Flocks of small birds fly around and settle on the rhino and elephant. Crocodiles and hippos share the river. Return to your Camp by sunset. Ol Moran Tented Camp or similar- Full board

Day 2
Masai Mara Game Reserve

A whole day of game viewing lies ahead of you. A before breakfast game drive reveals secrets of the night. As the morning starts out cool, hot coffee, tea and snacks are laid out to partake of before leaving. You may see lioness or cheetah at a kill or a lion enjoying a kill with a family of cubs waiting to feed. Hyenas and vultures will also be waiting their turn near the carcass. Antelope grazing peacefully, safe in the knowledge that at least for now the predator is well fed. All the animals are having breakfast. Crocodiles are lying in wait for the animals that will come to the river to drink. Hippos usually leave the water to graze in the late evening or night; the heat of the sun is harmful to their skin so they spend the day swimming or submerged in the shallow water. After breakfast the visitor may like to relax in the cool water of the swimming pool supplied with cool drinks by the attentive staff. The afternoon game drive will take the visitor to the leopards hideout. He may be asleep in the tree with the kill which he has dragged up with him or he may just be watching his visitors. One should not under estimate the calm looks the leopard gives. Return to your Camp after watching the spectacular African sunset. Optional Activity – Take the opportunity to fly over the Mara in a Hot air Balloon provided at an extra cost. The balloon package includes a champagne breakfast in the wild. Viewing abundant game afloat a balloon is a memorable experience. Ol Moran Tented Camp or similar- Full board
