The Maasai Mara Game Reserve is often called simply “The Mara” Maasai word meaning “mottled” a reference to its patchy landscape. The terrain of the reserve is primarily grassland and riverine forest with clumps of distinctive acacia trees. The Mara ecosystem supports a high density of animals including the Big Five evident throughout the year, which plays host to the annual migration but whatever the time of year the resident wildlife will surely enthrall all who visit this wondrous Park.
Nairobi -Maasai Mara
You will be picked up from your residence at Nairobi at 7:00 am and then head south. Stop at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint (referred to as the Escarpment) and then head further south into the Masai Mara, arriving in time for lunch. You will then get ready for your afternoon game drive, which will take place from 16:00 to 18:30. You have a chance to explore the savanna in search of the “big five” (rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo, and elephant) in this wonderful game reserve. Other popular animals include zebra, hippo, wildebeest, hyena, and more.
Your first photographic safari will start in the afternoon returning to the camp for dinner and overnight stay.

The second day in Mara will be spent exploring the extensive grasslands savannas, your activities on this day will be largely dictated by the wildlife migration pattern and the weather with options of a full day, half-day, or morning and afternoon game drives. Whatever best suits you.
If you are craving a wild Adrenalin rush, an early morning balloon safari over the Mara plains is all you need, this can be arranged at an extra cost. A visit to the nearby traditional Maasai communities gives you a glimpse into their rich culture and traditions.
