Feel free to ask your guide anything that piques your interest in Kenyan life and culture.

Day 2
Masai Mara National Reserve
Day 2: Afternoon Safari in Masai Mara

Today, you embark on a six-hour drive from Nairobi to the Masai Mara National Reserve, where you’ll be greeted by the stunningly beautiful savannah plains—a truly jaw-dropping sight!

After lunch, you'll get your first glimpse of these plains, teeming with wildlife. The Masai Mara adjoins Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, and together they host Africa’s most famous spectacle: the annual Wildebeest Migration. Over 2.5 million animals traverse the plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara, following seasonal rains in pursuit of lush grazing.

The reserve is named in honor of the Maasai people (also spelled Masai), who have inhabited this region since migrating from the Nile Basin centuries ago. 'Mara' translates to 'spotted' in the Maa language, reflecting a landscape dotted with numerous short bushy trees across the vast savannah.

Day 3: Full Day Safari in Masai Mara

Today in the Masai Mara, you have the entire day to immerse yourself in its rich wildlife. The National Reserve boasts over 95 species of animals and more than 400 bird species. From mid-September to mid-October, you can witness the spectacular great migration, when vast herds of wildebeests, zebras, gazelles, antelopes, and impalas attempt to cross the Mara River.

During other months, the Masai Mara still offers the chance to see the famous Big Five, along with cheetahs, servals, hyenas, bat-eared foxes, black-backed or side-striped jackals, hippos, crocodiles, baboons, warthogs, topis, elands, waterbucks, oribis, reedbucks, and many more. It's a fantastic way to conclude your safari adventure!
