ITINERARY OVERVIEW

 
 
 

ETS N660 6 DAYS/5 NIGHTS WILDLIFE SAFARI TO MASAI MARA, LAKE NAKURU AND AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK.

Masai Mara National Park

Covering an area of over 1,500 square km, the Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular tourism destinations in Kenya. The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland. Wildlife tends to be most concentrated on the reserve’s western escarpment.

The swampy land provides more access to water and less access to tourists. The eastern end is closest to Nairobi and hence easier to access by tourists. The Masai Mara is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. The annual wildebeest’s migration alone involves over 1.5 million animals arriving in July and departing in November.

Animals
There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles and over 400 birds’ species recorded on the reserve. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant, and it is for this reason a visitor hardly misses to see the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino). Other game include hippopotami, cheetah, Grant’s gazelle, impala, topi, Coke’s hartebeest, giraffe, Roan antelope and the nocturnal bat-eared fox. However wildebeest are by far the dominant inhabitants of the Masai Mara.

Distance from Nairobi to Mara – 260KMS

Day 1: Nairobi - Masai Mara National Reserve

Depart Nairobi for Masai Mara.

Pass through the lower scenic Mau escarpment road into the Rift Valley to the 1500 square, kilometer Masai Mara National Reserve to arrive in time for lunch.

The afternoon is spent on a game drive. Lion making a kill might be witnessed in the late afternoon or a leopard in a tree enjoying the meal he has dragged up to avoid disturbance and detection. This reserve has hilly savanna, rolling grasslands, gallery forest on the Mara River and its tributaries. The ‘big five’ are positively represented here.

The large predators are the lion, leopard and cheetah. The smaller predators are the hyena and jackal. The large herbivores are the elephant, rhino, Burch ell’s zebra, hippo, buffalo and giraffe.

The smaller herbivores are the antelope and bucks. The Maasai ostrich, the world’s largest bird is found in the park

Day 2: Masai Mara National Reserve

Enjoy full day in an early morning and evening game viewing and exploring this part of the Northern Serengeti Ecosystem where the great wildebeest migration takes place.

Months before the actual migration the herds ‘assemble’ in Serengeti in readiness for the crossing into Masai Mara. The plain is literally covered with these animals. Grunts and other animal sounds are heard, and territorial fights are commonplace. The migration, now declared the Seventh Wonder of the World takes place from end June to beginning September.
