This is a safari to the world famous Maasai Mara. Kenya’s rift
valley escarpments offer some of the most breath taking views. The Rift
Valley is part of the East African rift system; a massive geological
fault line stretching almost 6500km across the African continent, from
the Dead Sea in the north to Beira, Mozambique in the south. Land mass
collision and movements resulted in the escarpments, ravines, flatlands
and lakes that mark much of East Africa’s topography today. The
rift valley lakes are often very deep, with floors below sea level even
though their surfaces may be several hundred metres above sea level.
Day 1: Maasai Mara
We head south to Narok, camping in our permanent Talek riverside campsite
situated at the edge of the park. Here we have stand-up tents with beds
for use as well as small wood cabins for those after a touch more comfort.
Hot showers are available in the camp and meals are served in the dinning
mess or in the open. In the night you can hear a chorus of different
animal sounds as they communicate with each other in the darkness –
more than a reason to visit.
Day 2 and 3: Maasai Mara
The next two days shall be spent game viewing, either in the early morning
hours or in the evening as this is when we have the best chances of
seeing animals. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange tinted
sunsets and you will definitely want to capture this moment while sipping
on a sun downer back at our campsite.
The Mara reserve is 1510 sq km of incredible wide-open landscapes
and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the
Mara and Talek rivers. Wherever you go in the Mara you will see a frequent
amount of wildlife such as Maasai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared
foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest.
Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos also exist in great numbers.
It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or
surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are
harder to spot but are still reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus
in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from
the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in
October. Balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the
savannah plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for
a beautiful champagne breakfast. These trips can be arranged at our
office upon booking.

We break camp and drive to Narok where Maasai souvenirs can be bought,
then back to Nairobi by late afternoon for departure.
