3 Days Masai Mara Safari
The 3 days Masai Mara Safaris provide a quick but worthwhile visit to Masai Mara, which involves exploring one of the best national game reserves in the world, engaging in various activities and socialising with the local Masai tribes to learn about their customs. If time permits, you might even take a hot air balloon flight to see the Masai Mara from above, catching some of the most magnificent panoramas while looking down at animals scurrying over the savanna.
Day 1: Transfer to Masai mara national park and embark evening game drive in the park.
Be picked up from your hotel or airport early in the morning, and then be driven through Kenya’s lush countryside to the Masai Mara. The trip takes about four to five hours. You will travel to the Masai Mara National Reserve, where you will spend the following two nights.
As you continue climbing westward toward the western rift valley, you’ll notice a change in the landscape marked by canopies of various tree species. Reach the Maai Mahiu town of Hot Springs by going deeper. Proceed to Narok County to pick up a few drinks, then go to the Masai Mara Reserve. Upon arrival, check into your lodge for lunch and a short period of relaxation.
Around 3:45 p.m., leave your lodge for a beautiful twilight game drive across the countryside. On the game drive, expect to see wildebeest, giraffes, elephants, rhinos, lions, and many other animals.
After your game drive, return to your lodge for dinner and the night.
Day 2: Full-day Game Drive.
Get ready for an active day of discovery. Eat breakfast, and leave the resort by 8:00 for a thorough game drive. You will have the chance to see animals that you most likely missed the previous days, such as cheetahs, leopards, and buffaloes, as well as lions, elephants, zebras, wildebeests, topis, elands, Thomson gazelles, jackals, hyenas, mara river hippos and crocodiles, warthogs, and various bird species.
As the wildebeests prepare for their migration, you will also travel down to the Mara River; if you’re lucky, you might even observe the wildebeests’ migration.
Take a picnic lunch break beneath the tree shelters. As you make your way back to the resort, you’ll likely witness more wildlife since the Masai Mara is a wildlife-rich area. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.
Day 3: Transfer to Nairobi and the airport.
Wake up in the Masai Mara’s vastness, eat breakfast, check out of the lodge, travel back to Nairobi, and then connect to Jomo Kenyatta Airport for your trip home. End Safari
