Country:Kenya

This is a Kenya safari to Kenya’s greatest concentration of game – the Masai Mara National Reserve, as Kenya’s most famous park, it offers the chance of seeing the ‘Big Five’ and is home to the colourful Masai people. On our way there, we pass through Kenya’s rift valley escarpments which offer some of the most breath taking views.

The Rift Valley is part of the East African rift system which is one of the main attractions in this Kenya safari and one never to miss; a massive geological fault line stretching almost 6500km across the African continent, from the Dead Sea in the north to Beira, Mozambique in the south. In Kenya, the rift valley landscape comprises of escarpments, ravines, flatlands and soda lakes that mark much of East Africa.

DAY 1 OF THIS KENYA SAFARI STARTS TO MASAI MARA MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Departing in the morning at 07:00 hours we drive down the escarpment via the floor of the Great Rift Valley. We camp at our permanent Talek riverside campsite situated at the edge of the park. Here we have stand-up tents with beds for use as well as small wood cabins for those after a touch more comfort. Hot showers are available in the camp and meals are served in the dinning mess or in the open.

In the night you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as they communicate with each other in the darkness and a way of welcoming you in this Kenya safari– more than a reason to visit though the ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.

DAY 2 OF KENYA SAFARI ARE TO EXPLORE MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

We spend the day doing 4W safari game viewing and relaxing in the campsite grounds. On clear days of this Kenya safari, the Masai Mara National Reserve offers fantastic orange tinted sunsets and you will definitely want to capture this moment while sipping on a sundowner back at our campsite. The Mara reserve is 1510 sq km of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers.

Wherever you go in the Masai Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests and wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos also exist in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but are still reasonably common particularly in this reserve making this Kenya safari to the Masai Mara National Reserve a great destination for all big cat lovers.

Balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for a beautiful champagne breakfast, these trips can be arranged at our office upon booking so as not to miss in this Kenya Safari.
