Masai Mara safari Holidays

This tour is a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife journey to three of Kenya’s most incredible game parks – Aberdare, Lake Nakuru and the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

The safari begins in Nairobi and takes you by road to the highlands of central Kenya to the Aberdare National Park. At the Aberdare National Park, you will stay at a lodge overlooking an active, floodlit watering hole.

Two of Kenya’s Tree safari lodges are located in Aberdare National Park – Treetops and Ark. Both provide excellent game viewing at night over the watering hole. Watch the animals that frequently visit the lively waterhole beside the lodge, from a series of viewing decks and areas at different levels.

Spot animals at the floodlit salt-lick and watering hole into the night, with common visitors including elephants, buffalo, elephants, lions, rhinos, black leopards, giant forest Hog, bushbuck, and the elusive Bongo antelope.

After a night at the Tree lodge, you head down to scenic Lake Nakuru National Park, a birding paradise and home to black and white rhinos, tree-climbing lions, leopards and many other wild animals. It is an excellent park for wildlife spotting and is home to many water-loving animals such as hippos and waterbucks.

Then the time has come to explore Masai Mara – one of the most famous game parks on the planet, considered by many to be the finest wildlife safari destination in all of Africa. We drive southwest passing through the Rift Valley en route to Masai Mara National Reserve, which borders Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.

Masai Mara is the best place to see the “Big Five” animals (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo) together. The famous wildebeest migration also takes place at the Mara.

The Mara is also home to the richest concentration of wildlife, including zebras, antelope, gnus, Oribis, hyenas, giraffes, warthogs, gazelles, hartebeests, hippos, crocodiles, and others.

The park has the largest concentration of African lions, including the black-maned lion. Birdlife is as plentiful as wildlife at the Masai Mara, which boasts over 400 different bird species.

We journey back to the bustling city of Nairobi city after spending 2 nights at the Masai Mara.
