After breakfast you will drive west down the Great Rift Valley escarpment. From here you will turn off the main road and head towards the Narok gateway to the Masai Mara. Along the way you will travel across the “breakfast” frontier of Kenya, which is covered with acres of wheat and barley.

Arrive in the Mara in time for lunch. After lunch enjoy some free time until 1600hrs, at which point you will start your first game drive in the reserve that is regarded as the most magnificent natural theatre in the world. Set in the heart of Africa’s great plains, the Maasai Mara boasts 1,672 square kilometres of unspoilt wilderness. It is home to the highest concentration of animals and birds anywhere on the continent.

 

Dinner and overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge.

 

Day 7: Maasai Mara National Reserve 

Enjoy an early morning tea or coffee and then spend a full day enjoying the Masai Mara. This reserve features breath-taking vistas, panoramic vast rolling plains, hills and woodland groves. All of these are well-watered by the lovely Mara River, which bisects the reserve from north to south.

The Mara is also home to the largest population of lions in Kenya. These magnificent beasts spend most of the day sleeping in the shade of acacia trees. Vast herds of buffalo, zebra, impala, hartebeest, giraffe and other wild beasts also roam the plains. Meanwhile, the cautious topi may also seen standing sentinel on earth mounds on constant lookout for predators.

The waters of the Mara River are home to crocodiles and pools of hippo while the acacia woodlands and riverine forests are favoured by leopards and elephants. The open savannah and dry bush areas play host to the plains game and their attendant predators.

 

Dinner and overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge.

 

Day 8: Maasai Mara / Nairobi 

We will depart early for one last morning game drive and African sunrise. Return to the lodge for breakfast and check out for your journey back to Nairobi, arriving in the late afternoon.
