4 Days Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration Safari Tour
The Mara abounds with rolling grasslands, expressive acacia trees, sweeping vistas teeming with wildlife, and one of Africa’s common but unforgettable sights: “the cumulus clouds that drift all day long across a sun-filled sky,” as Elspeth Huxley wrote in The Flame Trees of Thika, “remind[ing] me of huge swirls of whipped cream.” (Those sunny skies and grand landscapes inspire us to consider a hot-air balloon option while we’re in the Mara.)
We make leisurely game drives throughout the Mara, stopping to contemplate the engrossing rock islands, called kopjes, that Peter Matthiessen called “magnificent, harmonious stone gardens…[revealing] the bone of Africa.” We gander at the pleistocenic crocodiles and hippos who frequent the Mara River and its tributaries (seeing a big pod of hippos gambol and thrash about can be as moving and beautiful in its gloriously hefty way as a performance of Swan Lake by the Kirov Ballet, as Walt Disney showed us in the immortal Fantasia, long ago). And we’ll have sundowners in the evening’s gentle warmth, breathing clean and guileless air, watching Africa’s showy stars come out to dazzle
Day 1: Nairobi-Maasai Mara
Pick up from your hotel in the morning at 7:30 am and head west for Maasai mara game reserve for lunch at the camp followed by afternoon game drive in the game reserve which is Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. Although July, August and September are the months when the mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeest and zebras, there is also resident wildlife year-round. The famous Maasai tribesmen live within the dispersal area of the game reserve. Dinner and overnight at the camp/Lodge.
Days 2 : Maasai Mara
A full day spent game viewing a cross the rich, tree studded grassland and rolling hills. The famous mara is renowned for its great herds of plain game, black-manned lions, leopard and cheetah but also contains numerous elephants and virtually every type of wild life to be found in Kenya. Lunch is served in the park a long the mara river, the crossing point of wildebeest and zebras during migration time. Return to your camp/lodge in the evening for dinner and overnight.
Day 3 : Maasai Mara
You will have breakfast, then leave for an early game drive in search for wildlife you never got a chance of viewing the previous day, and gain more experiences because you cannot predict nature.
