5 Day Maasai Mara

The magnificent Maasai Mara is Kenya’s number one tourist attraction and rarely disappoints.  Combined with a night in a Maasai community, this itinerary offers the perfect combination of wildlife and culture. 6DayMasaiMara2


  • Spectacular wildlife in the Maasai Mara
  • Meet Maasai in their traditional village
  • Nairobi – plenty to do in East Africa’s capital
Day 1: Nairobi

 In the morning, visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphange.  After lunch, we will head to Kibera to visit Amani Kibera’s projects including the library, the young women’s group and, if our timing is good, a football game.  Amani Kibera is a community-based organisation working for harmony and peace in Nairobi’s slums.  Their focus is on young people, assisting in getting girls back to school, building a library and establishing a football league.

Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 2: Nairobi to Maasai Mara

After an early breakfast, drive to the world famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve.  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.

Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3: Maasai Mara

Spend a full day game driving in the Maasai Mara. The abundance and variety of 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.

Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Maasai Mara

Start the day with an early morning game drive or optional hot air balloon flight.  After breakfast proceed on another game-viewing session. After lunch we head to a nearby Maasai village to see their nomadic lifestyle and learn about their culture and traditions.  Spend the night with the Maasai.

Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5: Maasai Mara to Nairobi

After some more time with the Maasai, head back to Nairobi.  Enjoy a free afternoon in Nairobi with options to visit the Giraffe Centre, National Museum, Karen Blixen’s House or Kazuri Beads.
