Masai Mara safari

This affordable 7-Day road safari takes you on the journey of a lifetime to four of the best game viewing areas in Kenya – Samburu National Reserve, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Lake Nakuru National Park and the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Beginning and ending in Nairobi, you will be in the capable hands of a highly experienced and trained private driver guide who will introduce you to some of the greatest natural wonders of Kenya.

Depart Nairobi by road in a 4×4 safari vehicle, driving north to the Samburu National Reserve situated along the Ewaso Ng’iro River.  The river attracts and supports the wildlife of Samburu in this otherwise arid part of Kenya.

During our game drives, we may come across lions, cheetahs and leopards, and are likely to see elephants, hippos, buffalos, Grevy’s zebras, oryx, giraffes, gerenuks and wild dogs.

The park is also rich in birdlife, hosting over 350 species. Samburu is one of the two areas where Elsa the lioness, of Born Free fame, was raised by George and Joy Adamson. Another highlight is encountering the traditional Samburu people, with their indigenous culture that still follows ancient practices.

The Sweetwaters/ Ol Pejeta Conservancy is our next stop on safari and it’s located in the foothills of the Aberdare Mountains and Mount Kenya in north-central Kenya.

Ol Pejeta covers 90 000 acres (360 km²) of wilderness and is one of Africa’s rhino strongholds, hosting one of the largest and fastest-growing populations of rhinos. This wildlife conservancy is home to the Big Five of Africa and a high density of predators, as well as Kenya’s only chimpanzee sanctuary.

The journey continues to the scenic Lake Nakuru National Park, originally established as a bird sanctuary. When water levels are high enough, massive flocks of flamingos have been known to gather at Lake Nakuru.

Highlights on our 4×4 game drive may include sightings of tree-climbing lions and both black and white rhinos, for which the reserve is better known today. Commonly sighted animals include giraffes, baboons, zebras, buffalos, antelopes and hippos, with rare finds including leopards.

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 embark on morning and afternoon 4×4 adventures in this Big Five Mecca where we may see herds of wildebeest, elephants, zebras and antelopes, along with prides of lions, coalitions of cheetahs, a crash of rhinos and lone leopards.

After 2 nights in the Masai Mara, we journey back to the bustling city of Nairobi and get dropped off at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or at your city hotel.

Lake Nakuru, a soda lake on the floor of the Great Rift Valley is rich in bird life and home to over 400 different species. Its claim to fame, however, is its large flocks of flamingos.

The sight of millions of flamingoes making the lake appear ringed in pink is spectacular. In addition to the abundant bird life, it is also an important haven for the endangered species of Rothschild’s giraffe and both black and white rhino.

Lake Nakuru is rich in wildlife giving you and your family the chance to spot lions, waterbuck, buffalo, baboons and much more.

The iconic Masai Mara National Reserve is the backdrop for an unbelievably full-afternoon game drive. Welcome to the great plains of Africa! The Masai Mara is an unfenced wilderness area that stretches over more than 1500 square kilometres.

The reserve is home to the most famous East African tribe, the Masai, whom you will see along the roadside herding cattle in their red robes. Mara is home to herds of wildebeest, zebra and other antelope as well as giraffe and buffalo.

There are plenty of predators too with lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas. We stay out until dusk when the animals are at their most active.

Dinner is served back at the well-equipped camp, where we spend the evening telling tales around the campfire and gazing at the stars.

The famous Masai Mara Game Reserve is Kenya’s most popular and most visited game sanctuary. It was used as the location of the well-known film ‘Out of Africa’ because of its spectacular scenery and outstanding natural beauty. Mara is home to a huge variety of plains wildlife from wildebeest and zebra to lions, cheetahs and hyenas.

From July to August the park hosts one of nature’s truly great events. Millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrate from the Serengeti, across the Tanzania border and the Mara River to reach the sweet grass plains of the Maasai Mara National Park.

It is awash with high drama. Crocodiles lurk in the river and lions and other predators lie in ambush in the long grass. In addition to the unforgettable game experience, about 452 species of birds have been recorded in the park.
