Day 1: Drive to Maasai Mara
This tour starts with pick up from Nairob. We drive off the metropolis westwards passing small agricultural holdings as you pick altitude to the top of the escarpment.You will stop for a photo session at a scenic point before descending to the floor of the rift valley.
The drive will take you past Narok town, a colourful market centre in the middle of the Maasai land. Arrival in the Mara will be in time for lunch. Afternoon game viewing drives till sunset. Dinner and overnight stay will be at the camp/lodge.
Day 2: Gamedrives
The search for great predators and perhaps even cubs continues today during extensive game runs. On the plains are enormous herds of grazing animals plus the elusive cheetah and leopard hiding amidst acacia boughs.
During our stay, we also have an optional opportunity to visit a village of the Maasai people to witness the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals.
A glimpse into their homes and social structure is an awe-inspiring experience. Dinner and overnight stay will be at the camp/lodge.
Day 3: Departure for Nairobi
