3 Days 4 Nights
The Maasai Mara Ecosystem holds one of the highest lion densities in world and this is where
over Two Million Wildebeest, Zebra and Thompsons Gazelle migrate annually. Its hosts over 95
species of mammals and 570 recorded species of birds. This is considered the 7th wonder of the
new world. Maasai Mara (Masai Mara) is known as Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserve, situated
in southwest Kenya. Famous for the abundance of lions, the Great Wildebeest Migration where
over 1 million wildebeest and Zebras follow an annual migratory route from and to Serengeti to
Maasai Mara and the Maasai people, well known for their distinctive custom and dress, it is
without a doubt one of Africa’s most famous safari destinations.
Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, we drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley.We arrive at Maasai Mara Game Reserve in time for lunch in the afternoon. Having checked in at Lenchada tourist camp, we take our first thrilling game drive in the Masai Mara game reserve, one of East Africa’s top safari destinations. 6pm return to the camp for dinner and overnight stay. In the night you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as they communicate with each other in the darkness – more than enough reason to visit. An evening sundowners cocktail as you view the sun go down is a good way to end the day at an extra cost.

Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers.
It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common.The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass
before turning south again in October to December. There is nothing thrilling like a bush dinner to end such an adventurous day at an extra cost.
