The next part looks at the detailed 4 Days Basecamp Masai Mara Lodge to give you an idea of what you should expect during your safari. We invite you also to check our 4-Day Keekorok Lodge Mara Safari and a shorter 3-Day Jambo Mara Safari Lodge.

Day 1: Welcome, Trip Briefing, Drive from Nairobi to Masai Mara, & Evening Game Drive

Welcome to Kenya! You will meet your designed gold-level safari guide waiting for you at the airport to welcome you to Kenya. And our guide doesn’t just pick you up; they do it on time with the bubbliest attitude you’ve ever seen.

After greeting, the guide briefs you of what to expect from your 4-days Basecamp Masai Mara Safari Lodge Package, and then the journey begins. The aim is to make the break for this 7-hour drive at around 6 a.m., and that’s why we recommend you book a flight that lands in Kenya by 4-5 a.m.

This journey sees you enjoy some stopovers along the way, with one such being the Great Rift Valley Viewpoint. The viewpoint gives you breathtaking takes of the Rift Valley, a moment best commemorated by pics.

We also stop at Narok for a well-deserved stretch of legs and some last-minute shopping and then resume our road trip to allow us to get to the camp in time for lunch. Basecamp Masai Mara Safari Lodge offers Rooms with a modern flair, mesmerising views of the Mara landscape, and top-notch facilities.

We leave you to partake in the lodge’s magnificence, only disrupting the party with a 3:00 P.M evening game drive. Not to worry, though: the Masai Mara game drives are every bit as captivating as the Basecamp Masai Mara Camp.

On the menu this evening is the 580sq mile plain that features some of the most rewarding wildlife and scenery. The scenery unfolds right before your eyes as you feast them on over 58 animal species on offers, including the Big Five, wildebeests, zebras, jackals, gazelles, giraffes, and buffaloes.

Keep your eyes open! The evening game drives are also rewarding for predator sightings. - Basecamp Masai Mara

Day 2: Full-Day Exploration of the Mara with a 4×4 Safari Land Cruiser and Packed Lunch

Your day 2 of the Basecamp Masai Mara Lodge package features a full-day game drive with a picnic lunch. It begins with early breakfast to ensure that you are deep into the wild by 6:00 A.M, ready to uncover the secrets morning game drives hold.

You will love the ridiculous amounts of wildlife, which is easy to spot during the morning game drive when the weather is favourable. The experienced guide helps us spot even the rarities while impressing you with his deep knowledge of the Mara savannah.

Keep your camera close: you will want to capture the arresting beauty of the Mara. The drive stops briefly at noon at a designated picnic spot to enjoy a packed lunch from Basecamp Masai Mara Hotel.

The second leg of your game drive begins after lunch. The Mara never runs out of wonders to marvel at, a thing that makes it a prime safari destination for young families, friends, and honeymooners alike.

You yet again find yourself fully immersed in the wildlife and scenery of the Mara, the sheer range of it taking your breath away. The guide keeps you close to the herds and shares in the thrill of spotting the antelopes, leopards, zebras, gazelles, and lions.

You will be awed when sunset finally strikes during your evening game drive. Watch some of the over 450 bird species in the park form creative patterns in the sky through your binoculars.

Watch as a leopard cunningly stalks its prey or a family of mongoose chatter happily with each other. Here is a reason to head back to Basecamp Masai Mara Lodge in the evening: double tents come with private decks that give spectacular views of the Masai Mara landscape.

Day 3: (Optional Hot Air Balloon Safari ) Full-Day Exploration of the Mara with a 4×4 Safari Land Cruiser

Every meal served in the Basecamp Masai Mara hotel comes with some captivating scenery to munch on. That’s what you enjoy for breakfast before heading out for the full-day game drive.

Every day in the Mara comes wrapped in mystery: our day 3 Basecamp Masai Mara Safari Lodge package is no different. As always, our silver-certified guides do their magic when it comes to wildlife spotting; their attention turned to wildlife that escaped us in previous drives.

You spend the morning astonishing at Mara’s variety. The drive only stopping for a quick lunch in the heart of the wild. It is all sunburned grasslands, rivers, fantastic lookouts, and acacias from then, all of which form magnificent backgrounds for wildlife watching.

The game drive can end with sunset watching, music, and a glass of wine at hand at Basecamp. You can also end the day with a brilliant night of star-gazing and storytelling around a campfire.

Some Tips: You can begin the day with a morning hot air balloon safari and then continue with the game drive for an additional £350.
