Itinerary for this Tour

Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara - Kenya

Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, we drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley. We arrive at our overnight camp, located in a private conservancy near Masai Mara, in time for lunch.

This afternoon we explore Masai Mara on our first game drive, getting a taste of what this legendary game park has to offer!

We stay in luxury safari tents overlooking scenic hills, a river and the surrounding wilderness of southern Kenya. At night you may hear the sounds of wildlife drawn to the river or roaming in the conservancy.

Day 2 & 3: Masai Mara Game Reserve - Kenya

The next two days are spent game viewing in Kenya's finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Our morning and afternoon game drives take us in search of Africa's Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Masai Mara offers fantastic orange tinged sunsets well-worth capturing on camera. The Masai Mara Game Reserve is 1510km² of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is classical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife.

Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see an abundance of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the wild plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common.

The ultimate action here is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, 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.

Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at extra cost.

We overnight at the same luxury tented camp near Masai Mara on day two and three.

Day 4: Masai Mara to Nairobi - Kenya

We depart from our safari camp and take a morning game drive through the Masai Mara Reserve on day four.

Then we return to bustling Nairobi, arriving at about 14:00 in the afternoon. This unforgettable 4-Day Budget Masai Mara Camping Safari ends upon arrival back in Nairobi.

Masai Mara Tour Accommodation

Accommodation is at a luxury tented camp located in a private 30-acre conservancy near the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

The camp is set on the banks of the Oloirigynyisho River which attracts various wild animals, regularly spotted by guests. The closest entrance to Masai Mara is the Ololaimutia gate, only 2.5 kms from the camp. This intimate camp features 8 spacious permanent tents which have been tastefully decorated and furnished with double beds and mosquito nets. The tents have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets, washbasins and hot showers. Each tent has its own veranda where guests can sit back and watch the bush, enjoying the views of the Oloolotikoshi Hills.

Facilities include bar and lounge areas, a shop selling locally-made products and an airy restaurant designed in the style of a traditional African hut.
