The Summarised 4-Day Masai Mara Safari Itinerary
Detailed 4-Day Masai Mara Safari Itinerary
Day 1: Airport Pickup, Road-Trip to Masai Mara, & Afternoon Game Drive
We recommend you book a flight that lands in Kenya (JKIA) by 4 am to ensure that you start your safari by 6 am. This has an advantage in that you avoid spending more money on accommodation in Nairobi.
Your assigned gold-level safari guide picks you up minutes within landing, does a briefing of your safari, and commences the 6-hour drive to the Masai Mara. About 1.5-hrs later, you get to take pictures for your Instagram at 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. Your guide lets you soak up the wonder and variety that comes with the viewpoint before continuing with the rest of your trip.
The next stop is 3-hrs later at Narok Town, where you can do some final shopping and stretch your legs before continuing with the next 2.5hrs of the road trip to Mara. If things go as planned, you should be at your chosen Masai Mara camp or lodge by noon.
This is the perfect time to take lunch and rest for a few hours before the later afternoon game drive. Your guide will pick you up at 3 pm from the camp using your exclusive 4×4 safari land cruiser for this game drive.
Cooler temperatures and sunset combine to create the perfect wildlife viewing experience at this time of the day. The predictors begin to get more active during this time of the day, continuing with that trend until sunrise.
Your 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
Sunrise finds you in the park, a sight worth its weight in gold when combined with the breathtaking scenery and wildlife. Mara morning game drives are the most popular for teeming wildlife and tranquil ambiences.
Wildlife is easier to catch, and the prey and predators alike look for their day’s meal due to reduced temperatures. The Big Five, hippos, wildebeests, giraffes, gazelles, hyenas, impalas, zebras, wild dogs, and buffaloes scatter all over the plains.
Your morning game drive pours into the afternoon, and it is then the guide take advantage of the slightly plains to set you a picnic site to have your packed lunch. A more profound exploration of the park follows after lunch with your guide leaving no inch of the 1,510km2 park unturned.
The Oloololo Escarpment Mara’s Olare Orok (Inside Mara Triangle), Mara’s Olare Orok, and Ol Kinyei Conservancies offer more wildlife. However, the conservancies require you to book a hotel within the triangle.
Day 3:Optional Hot-Air Balloon Safari & Game Drives
Your day 3 of Masai Mara is dedicated to the rarities of Mara, its remarkability, and the wildlife that escaped you the previous days. The adventure begins at dawn and only stops when the wanderlust is quenched at dusk.
Today expect a plain overflowing with wildlife, rarities such as the leopard, and delicious lunch served at the heart of the wild. A hot-air balloon safari is another worthwhile indulgence if you do not mind parting with an extra £430.
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. The day starts with a morning breakfast, and then the guide takes you to the jungle after the hotel checks out.
The game drive lasts until approximately 10 AM, the ideal time to head to a Maasai village. The Maasai Villages is the first stop on your 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.
You are on the way back to Nairobi an hour later, a trip that will take you 6 hours to complete. 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.
