The Summarised, 3 Days Jambo Mara Safari Lodge Itinerary
Detailed 3-Day Jambo Mara Safari Lodge Itinerary
Day 1: Pickup at JKIA, Road Trip to Masai Mara, & Evening Game Drive
We advise our UK clients to book a flight that lands in Nairobi by 6:00 A.M – and for a good reason. You are picked by our bubbliest, silver/gold-certified guides, briefed about the safari, and off we go to the Masai Mara.
What follows is a 6-hour trip that journeys us through lush countrysides, rough roads, hills, all-weather roads, bone-dry terrains – you name it! We make a quick stop at the Great Rift Valley Viewpoint for the pics and views and another, two hours later, at Narok for shopping.
Some more breathtaking views and a 4-hour drive later, and we are in the Masai Mara. We take the Sekenani road and drive 11km south towards the show’s star – the Jambo Mara Safari camp. We ensure you are well settled into your room before leaving you for two hours to get acquainted with the exceptional Jambo Mara lodge and take lunch.
Our evening game drive begins at 3:00 P.M. The evening is when vicious predators stir from their sleep and ready their limbs for a meal chase. It’s also when the unsuspecting prey goes for a final drink and nibbles on Mara’s vast grasslands.
We are in the park just before sunset, marvelling at the vast wildlife and unique vegetation congregation. Our drive spans till just before nightfall when we go back to camp for dinner and night rest.
Day 2: Full-Day Game Drive in a 4×4 Open-Top Van with Packed Lunch
Our morning game drive starts soon after breakfast, and we are again deep into the wild in search of its thrills and spills. Like the evening game drive, morning drives are very rewarding in matters of wildlife and riveting sceneries.
Expect immense multitudes of the Big Five, hippos, giraffes, antelopes, gazelles, impalas, and wildebeests. The birds aren’t shy either; the Kingfisher, hornbill, Secretary bird and Kori Bustard are expected to appear.
At noon, we gather under the signature acacia trees within the Mara for a delicious packed lunch from the Jambo Mara Safari Camp. Our game drive continues after with an afternoon to evening game drive.
Every turn within the Mara reveals new sets of attractions to admire. If we are not fussing over the wildlife, sunburned savannah, or bird variety, then we are admiring its scenery. The Oloololo Escarpment is one such scenery.
The pics we take here will give your Instagram a crazy boost, so don’t be shy… strike a pose! Our drive extends till nightfall when we return to camp, gather around an optional campfire, and tell the stories of our lives.
Day 3: Morning Game Drive, Maasai Village Visit, & Drive Back to Nairobi
We don’t know about you, but adventure hits differently when your day starts with a warm shower. The Jambo Mara Camp seems to know this secret, and so its spacious bathrooms feature hot and cold showers, hand basins, and flush toilets.
You will also love that the camp has 24-hour services, free WI-FI, and clean, regularly changed sheets. We head out for our morning game drive after breakfast and check-out, this time searching for the wildlife that might have escaped us during our previous endeavours.
Those that book the Jambo Mara Lodge safari between July and October also get to witness the world-renowned Wildebeest Migration. The aforementioned is a thrilling once-wonder-of-the-world event that witnesses the crossing of millions of wildebeests and zebras past the Mara River into Mara from the nearby Serengeti National Park.
We head to the Maasai village at 10 AM after the morning game drive. Stone walls, electric fences are what most expect the houses of this tribe that lives in the heart of the wild to look like.
But to their surprise comes cow-dung and mud huts erected by sticks. Gather and listen to their near-death experiences, buy their colourful beadwork and join in their dances. Our journey back to Nairobi begins after this visit. We see you on your flight back home.
