Days 1, 2, and 3: Masai Mara

Is a Masai Mara Safari Worth the Hype? (Honest Opinion)

When you arrive in Nairobi, you will be met and driven to the domestic airport for your flight to the Masai Mara, where your Kenyan safari will begin. You will spend three nights exploring the Masai Mara on game drives, bush hikes, and village visits.

The Masai Mara is one of the world’s most well-known wildlife reserves, well known for hosting the Great Wildebeest Migration. Throughout the year, millions of wildebeest and zebra migrate between Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya‘s Masai Mara Reserve, following the rains that provide the grasses with the water they require to develop. The great migration usually occurs in the Masai Mara for a few months between June/July and September before the herds return south to give birth.

The Masai Mara is particularly well-known for its big cat sightings, with cheetah, leopard, and lion sightings being very common.
