After breakfast, you will drive through the Rift Valley floor to Masai Mara National Reserve arriving at the lodge in good time for lunch. Thereafter, Embark on your first game drive in the reserve this afternoon at 4;00 pm

One of our favourite places to look for wildlife in Kenya is the Masai Mara National Reserve. That's because the wildlife here is incredible, with big cats (lions, leopards, and cheetahs) and elephants among the highlights. There's a very good chance you'll also see giraffes, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, hippos, hyenas, and, of course, impalas. And bring your binoculars, because more than 500 species of birds have been recorded in the reserve. It's a place of beautiful Savannah landscapes as well, with lots of acacia trees.
The Masai Mara ecosystem comprises the famous reserve, community conservancies, group ranches, and many Maasai villages.

This is a full day spent game viewing across the rich tree-studded grassland and rolling hills of the famous Savanna. The Mara is renowned for its great herds of plains game animals like leopards, Cheetahs, Lions and other herbivores. It has virtually every other type of wildlife to be found in Kenya. You will have a full-day game drive in Masai Mara Savannah.

Your lunch today is picnic lunch boxes in the savannah under a flat-top acacia tree while watching the animals grazing. Continue with the game viewing on-route to your camp, arriving at your late in the afternoon after thoroughly exploring this massive grassland savannah measuring 1,500 km sq.

You have an option of booking a balloon ride today which takes off early in the morning. After landing, the crew helps you out of the basket and escorts you to a lovely setting for a bush breakfast which is a lifetime experience and worth the
price. Later join your driver guide at a location and proceed with your full-day game drive.

After a leisurely morning breakfast, You will check out of your lodge, pack up and drive back to Nairobi. En route, you will have an( Optional) scheduled visit to a Maasai Village for a cultural experience, where you'll learn more about the community that has co-existed with the Mara wildlife for centuries.

You'll have lunch the African way at one of the Hotels in Narok town. Afterwards, you will continue with the journey to Nairobi, arriving in the mid-afternoon. You'll be dropped off at your respective hotel or at the airport to mark this as the end of your Safari.

Depending on your homebound flight departure time, you will organize with your diver guide the departure time from Masai Mara.
