DAY 1: Nairobi – Masai Mara National Park
Depart from Nairobi at 0700 Hrs for a 4-5 hour drive to beginin the Maasai Mara Safari route. Our drive will take us through the Great Rift Valley, the 5,600-kilometer fault line that extends from Ethiopia’s Red Sea through Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and into Mozambique and has over time created a fascinating landscape, As we set out, our first scenic views will be the spectacular escarpments and expansive floors of the valley laden with patches of whistling thorn acacia plants. The valley gradually gives way to rolling shrub land, with predominantly wooded bush land and riveting vegetation along the streams and dry river beds.
After a brief stopover to stretch our legs, we continue the Maasai Mara safari route via the Loita plains with the Loita Hills in the background. We will arrive in time for lunch and afternoon game drive in the African wild.

DAY 2: Masai Mara Safari Game Drives (Wildlife Viewing)
After breakfast, we proceed for a full day of game drives in the Mara. The Maasai Mara Game Reserve is largely plains and open grasslands, a habitat to rich and varied African wildlife including lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffalo, zebras, giraffes, several species of birds and more. The annual migration of millions of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles between July to September is a spectacle not to be missed by any visitor to the Mara. The wildebeest, who travel in herds for more than 900 kilometers crossing from the Serengeti plains north to the Maasai Mara, encounter their final obstacle at the Mara River. The Masai Mara is drained majorly by the famous River Mara, and the Mara River crossing is one of the most astonishing and absorbing spectacles, especially with the hungry crocodiles ready to pounce.
After a Masai Mara safari full day of taking in nature’s sights, we return to the camp in the evening.
