3 Day Masai Mara NR Safari Tour

This Maasai Mara National Reserve safari includes 2 nights camping or in a safari lodge with game drives in the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Maasai Mara is probably the most famous of the reserves & is located in Kenya’s south western corner and boasts an astonishing amount of game. The national reserve is unfenced, with the Mara being bounded in the east by the Ngama Hills and in the west by the Oloololo or Siria Escarpment. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and attract many & varied predators. Not only is this a great place in which to find game, but also the wide green-gold savannahs spotted with thorn trees make it ideal for photography. A Maasai Mara safari offers both spectacular scenery & unforgettable game viewing and with a large selection of private lodges is a popular option for a Kenya tour.

After an early breakfast, drive to the world famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve arriving in time for lunch. Maasai Mara, Kenya’s greatest wildlife reserve, is without a doubt Africa’s most famous safari destination. The Maasai Mara Ecosystem is where over two million wildebeest and zebra migrate annually. It also holds one of the highest lion densities in the world, which is why it the home of the BBC wildlife channel’s Big Cat Diary. Other game includes: leopard, cheetah, buffalo, rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, plains game, crocodile and small mammals including mongoose, hyrax, dik dik and the nocturnal porcupine. Enjoy a late afternoon game drive followed by dinner.  (Lunch & dinner)

Day 2 – Maasai Mara National Game Reserve
game in this reserve is nothing short of amazing. Nearly every mammal can be seen in the Maasai Mara, including various antelopes, scavengers like hyena and vultures, and all the cats (lion, cheetah and leopard). Sighting a leopard needs luck more than just being there, but lions are abundant and there are excellent chances for spotting cheetah. The hippo pool is a popular spot to watch out for hippos; with luck, you may catch crocodile basking on the rocks. Elephants, buffalo, the Maasai giraffe, wildebeest and the common zebra abound. Return to the camp for dinner and overnight. (Breakfast, lunch & dinner)

Aruba Mara Camp ★★★★
All our tents offer a fantastic view of the river and the park. You can watch the animals drinking at the river while enjoying your meal on our restaurant terrace. Likewise you will be able to explore a true bird paradise. In the evening you will experience romance at the camp fire and enjoy the endless expanse of the Masai Mara with breathtaking sunsets. In our restaurant the fresh products from Kenya are processed to culinary treats. Bread and pasta are freshly baked daily, and our noodles are homemade. We also serve a good glass of wine, a cold beer or a delicious long drink in the bar, at the fire pit or in the beer garden. We kindly ask our guests without full-board to make a reservation for all meals in the restaurant – which is not necessary for the drinks in the bar, of course. Cheers! And because it is important to many, we offer free Wi-Fi in the restaurant.  However, we cannot guarantee permanent availability.
