Wild life in Masai Mara

5 days

  • Game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park
  • 2 days game drives in Masai Mara Game Reserve

 

Day 1: Pick up at Airport to Nairobi Hotel

Flight Kigali to Nairobi. Our esteemed and trained driver will pick you from the airport and drop you off at the hotel. You can choose to dine and stay at either the Eka Hotel, Double Tree hotel, Nairobi Serena or the Holiday Inn.

Day 2: Nakuru National Park 

After a sumptuous breakfast, we begin our adventure into the wild. The adventures start right in Nairobi as we enjoy the green scenery and the fresh air devoid of pollution. It’s also away from the hustle and bustle that is Nairobi town. A stopover at the Rift Valley Viewpoint will start off our memory making safari. There is something incredible about this view; the entire area is surrounded by escarpments lined with greenery that goes on forever and ever. It’s a great place for the photogenic as it offers a great background and a panoramic view like no other.

We arrive at Lake Nakuru in time for lunch and after a mouthwatering meal, head off for the afternoon game drive.

Avid bird watchers will be at home in this lake. Lake Nakuru is lined with pink flamingos either on the shoreline, taking off or landing. It’s a haven of activity as other animals big and small visit the lake for some water. It’s also a sanctuary for the Rothschild giraffe, white rhino and black rhino. Other birds call this Lake home including the Cliff chat, the pelicans, eagles and so many others.

The smell of delicious dinner will wake us from our evening siesta, where after enjoying the masterpiece food, we spend the night at a lodge nearby.

Accommodation: Ziwa Bush Lodge / Midland Hotel

Day 3: Nakuru National Park – Masai Mara

Early morning breakfast will be followed by a drive to the Mara, known for the great Wildebeest Migration. Numerous animals leave the Serengeti in search of greener pastures and water. If you time your holiday right, then you can enjoy this impressive and phenomenon spectacle.

We arrive in time for lunch and after a brief rest, head out for the afternoon game drive.

This is your chance to watch the big five. Watch the baby elephant feed from its mother and the leopard glaring at you from the safety of its hiding place, high up the branch of the tallest tree. The way to enjoy the savannah is to slow down. Be keen and you will start seeing the animals even when camouflaged in their natural habitat.

After the afternoon game drive, we head into our lodge for a tantalizing dinner and some sleep.

Accommodation: Mara Chui Wildlife Lodge / Maji Moto Eco Park

Day 4: Game drives in the Mara

Our morning will start with an early breakfast and then we head out for the morning game drive. We follow the lion as it hunts the Impala. Watch how it stealthily moves, hiding among the tall grass, until it surprises the unsuspecting Impala that sprints for its life. When the other members of its pack join the hunt, it turns into a race for life for the Impala.

Other animals we get to see include the elephant, the leopard, the cheetah, the rhino, the ostrich, the antelopes, zebras, giraffes, and so many bird species.

We head back for lunch and some rest.

In the afternoon game drive you become one with the savannah as you watch different animals in their various habitats. It may also be a chance to visit a Masai village and experience one of Kenya’s rich cultures.

We head back to the lodge for some dinner and much needed rest.

Day 5: Masai Mara Game Reserve to Nairobi
