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.

Maasai Mara Sunset

Day 1 – Nairobi to Maasai Mara National Game Reserve
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)

into their culture and traditions. (Breakfast & lunch)

Mara Sopa Lodge ★★★★
Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Masai Mara Sopa Lodge was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs, and these stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their centre. Airy and spacious with an adjacent gift shop, the area – which incorporates a guest information desk – is decorated with warm earth colours and lit by an enormous, A can calabash chandelier.
Room info: 99 rooms – 87 double rooms, 12 suites
