Experience the wild of the Mara in Kenya with the combined the cultural, beach experience of Zanzibar
You will get your first taste of Kenyan hospitality from our representative, who will meet you at your Nairobi hotel or at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to transfer you to Wilson Airport for your flight to the Masai Mara National Reserve. There are two flights per day, but we recommend that you take the morning flight if possible, to maximize your time in The Mara. Check-in is one hour before departure and the flying time is around 45min. On arrival at the Masai Mara airstrip you will be met by your guide who will transfer you to the Base camp, your home for the next two exciting days! Have your camera handy as you drive to the Camp – this short drive will give you your first taste of game viewing in The Mara.
After a delicious lunch at the camp you will have some time to explore your environment and settle in before setting off on your first afternoon game drive. Your accommodation is in the true East African Safari style in spacious under-canvas rooms with all the luxury touches you need to complete your safari experience. You will generally be back in camp in time for sundowners before enjoying a wonderful dinner. After dinner, you can swap game-viewing stories with your fellow guests around the campfire or in the bar before falling asleep to the hypnotic sounds of the African wilderness.
o Dinner and overnight at Camp or Lodge
We suggest you request an early wake-up call so that you will not miss the first stirrings of animal movements, as you set off on your early morning game drive just as the first rays of sunlight peep over the horizon and the bush comes to life. You will return to the lodge for breakfast. Depart for more drives until lunch time, thereafter relax and feel free to enjoy the camp facilities until it is time for your afternoon game drive.
