The Summarised 4-Day Masai Mara Safari Itinerary
Detailed 4-Day Masai Mara Safari Itinerary
Here is the detailed 4-day itinerary to Masai Mara National Reserve to give you an idea of what you should expect when you book this safari with us.
You can opt for the 3-Day Masai Mara Safari from Nairobi Package if you are limited in travel duration.
Day 1: Airport Pickup, Road-Trip to Masai Mara, & Evening Game Drive
A 6:00 A.M landing comes highly recommended for the flexibility it affords. This is, however, not set in stone, for we like to think of ourselves as a company set apart by its flexibility.
Our guide picks you up minutes within landing, gives you a briefing of your safari, and commences the 6-hour drive to the Masai Mara.
A few hours in, you are introduced to the Instagram sweetheart that is the Great Rift Valley Viewpoint.
The viewpoint is a portal into a breathtaking world of verdant valleys adorned by some of the most colourful bird arrays known to man.
We allow you a 30-minute soak-up of the wonder and variety that comes with the viewpoint before continuing with the rest of our trip.
We stop again for final shopping at Narok town, a bustling town three hours away from Nairobi.
It’s only up from there, for we are at the Masai Mara National Park three and a half hours later.
It is perfect or nothing at all when picking out accommodation options for you – so expect to have our mind blown.
We settle you into your room and allow you two hours of rest and lunch before picking you up for the evening game drive.
Cooler temperatures and sunset are combined to create the perfect wildlife viewing experience for your evening game drive.
The wildlife is more active at that time, the sun-scorched grasslands teeming with their presence.
Our experienced guide roams the open plains, allowing you great views of the rhinos, elephants, gazelles, impalas, buffaloes, and giraffes to around 6 PM.
Day 2: Full-Day Game Drive with a Picnic Lunch and an Optional Transcendent Bush Dinner
If it’s magic you are looking for, you’ll find her touch in every minute spent on a Mara morning game drive.
Sunrise finds us in the park, a sight that is worth its weight in gold when combined with the breathtaking scenery and wildlife.
Mara morning game drives are the most popular for their teeming wildlife and tranquil ambiences.
Wildlife is easier to catch and the prey and predators alike look for their day’s first meal due to reduced temperatures.
The Big Five, hippos, wildebeests, giraffes, gazelles, hyenas, impalas, zebras, wild dogs, and buffaloes are all over the plains.
Our morning game drive pours into the afternoon, and it is then we take advantage of the slightly plains to have our packed lunch.
An even more profound exploration of the park follows, our guide leaving no inch of the 1,510km2 park unturned.
For a bird’s eye view of the park is the Oloololo Escarpment (Inside Mara Triangle) and for a sampling of more wildlife are Mara’s Olare Orok and Ol Kinyei Conservancies.
Like is the norm, magnificence is served for our evening game drive only with a tasty packed lunch.
In the evening, lanterns, soft jazz music, delicious cuisines, the moon, the stars, and the Mara are all that is needed for a transcendent bush dining experience.
Day 3:Optional Hot-Air Balloon Safari & Game Drives
The rarities, the wildlife that escaped us, and the Mara remarkability are what our day three is dedicated to.
The adventure begins at dawn and only stops when the wanderlust is quenched at dusk.
Expect a plain overflowing with wildlife, rarities such as the leopard, and delicious lunch and dinner served at the heart of the wild.
A hot-air balloon safari is another worthwhile indulgence for those who do not mind parting with an extra £300.
The world as you know it is brought to a standstill by the hour-long ride, the wildlife, and the panorama, being the best part of it all.
This experience is often made worth every pound, thanks to the delicious breakfast you enjoy after landing.
Expect champagne and everything you would dream of for a memorable bush breakfast.
Day 4: Morning Game Drive, Maasai Village Visit, and Trip Back to Nairobi
The beauty of game drives lies in their spontaneity, and this game drive or even a Masai Mara Migration Safari is no different.
After breakfast, we head out at dawn for the wildlife and check out the hotel at around 6 AM. The game drive lasts until approximately 10 AM.
The Maasai Villages are our first stop on our way to Nairobi.
Famous for their dances and colourful attire, the Maasai is a tribe that shares the Mara with hundreds of wildlife.
Their huts built of mud, sticks, cow dung, and human urine are a sight to behold, as is their eye-catching beadwork.
Learn how to make fire by rubbing sticks together, learn the Adumu dance, and let their tales of the wild fill you with wonder and admiration.
We are on our way back to Nairobi an hour later, a trip that will take us 6 hours to complete.
Critique, suggest, complement; we love to hear it all.
Depending on your needs, we either see you on a flight back home or check you into a nearby hotel from where you depart by boarding your flight early the following day.
