Experience Nature’s Spectacular Show

Overview

This summer escape to witness the awe-inspiring sight of millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles traversing the savannas under the African sun. This larger-than-life spectacle starts from the Serengeti Plains in Tanzania as millions of animals begin their journey towards the greener grazing lands of Maasai Mara in Kenya. What looks like a marvelous sight to us is actually a journey for survival for these animals.

Itinerary

Day 01: NAIROBI – MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE:

Pick up from the Hotel at 07:30 hrs and commence safari by road to the world famous Maasai Mara National Reserve, driving along the Rift Valley floor, at Mai Mahiu Town turn left towards the Maasai Mara – going past Narok Town (the Maasai Capital).   Arrive at your Camp/Lodge in time for lunch.   Late afternoon (16:00hrs), enjoy a game viewing drive in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, generally acclaimed as the finest game viewing area in the world!

Return to the camp/lodge at sunset, for dinner and overnight at SIANA SPRINGS TENTED CAMP (4* STANDARD).

MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE

The Maasai Mara National Reserve (MMNR) covers some 1,510 km2 (583 sq. mi) in south-western Kenya. It is the northern-most section of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, which covers some 25,000 km2 (9,700 sq. mi) in Tanzania and Kenya. It is bounded by the Serengeti Park to the south, the Siria escarpment to the west, and Maasai pastoral ranches to the north, east and west. Rainfall in the ecosystem increases markedly along a southeast–northwest gradient, varies in space and time, and is markedly bimodal. The Sand, Talek River and Mara River are the major rivers draining the reserve. Shrubs and trees fringe most drainage lines and cover hillslopes and hilltops. The terrain of the reserve is primarily open grassland with seasonal river lets. In the south-east region are clumps of the distinctive acacia tree. The western border is the Esoit (Siria) Escarpment of the East African Rift. Altitude: 1500-2180m; Rainfall: 83mm/month; Temperature range: 12-30?

 

Day 02: MAASAI MARA:

  • Breakfast at your Camp/Lodge.   Enjoy a morning and afternoon game viewing drive in the Reserve with lunch back at the Camp/Lodge (alternatively, you may depart with picnic lunches for a full day game drive).  This is a great chance to see the popular residents like the well-known predators and their opponents like the Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Hippo and the dangerous Crocodiles - including a visit to the Mara River.  Dinner and overnight at SIANA SPRINGS TENTED CAMP (4* STANDARD).

 

  • The Maasai Mara Game Reserve - the northern extension of the Serengeti, is without question the world’s prime game viewing area. With one of the highest diversity of species, and concentrations of animals, the acacia- dotted plains of the Mara offer wonderful scenery and a spectacular abundance of wildlife. Elephants, buffalo, wildebeest, topi, giraffes, hartebeest, serval cats, bat eared foxes; regal black- maned lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and jackals; monkeys and baboons, vultures, secretary birds, saddle bill storks, hundreds of migratory birds; countless pods of hippos around every bend of the Mara River, carefully watched by the other denizens of the rivers in the Maasai Mara - the crocodiles, infamous for their spectacular role in the “Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth”- the annual wildebeest migration between the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara, in which millions of wildebeest, zebra and topis brave the river, and the predators encountered daily, in their continuous annual treks in search of water and grazing, coming up to the Mara from the southern Serengeti plains.

 

Day 03: MAASAI MARA – LAKE NAIVASHA:

  • Breakfast at the Camp/Lodge.
  • In the morning, depart for the shores of Lake Naivasha – a RAMSAR wetlands site and an ornithologist’s paradise.
  • Arrive in time for lunch at your Lodge.  Afternoon at leisure, to enjoy the tranquility of the Lake, with interactions with a few plain game within the club perimeters or enjoy a 01-hour boat ride on the Lake at extra costs.
  • Dinner and overnight at  LAKE NAIVASHA KONGONI LODGE (4* STANDARD) 

 

  • LAKE NAIVASHA

This beautiful and expansive lake, set in the Rift Valley, gets its name from the Maa word for “tempestuous”, or moody. Located close to the now extinct volcano Mt. Longonot, the several vents and underwater caves that connect the two make it impossible to guess the exact depth of the lake, and the resulting currents and temperatures mean that the lake could be calm and serene in the morning, and choppy, cold and grey by the same afternoon! Naivasha was considered the heart of the opulent ‘Happy Valley’ settler population during the colonial era in the early 20th century, a trendy set equally renowned for their tempestuousness!  Lake Naivasha is extremely popular with visitors who would like to enjoy a lazy boat ride to admire the proliferation of over 350 species of birds which include fish eagles and ospreys, herons and egrets, purple gallinules, lily-trotters, red-knobbed coots and black crakes, or to admire the families of hippos that inhabit the lake. Those who prefer a faster pace could hire a speedboat and cruise the lake in spectacular style!

Crescent Island, which can be accessed by road at times, depending on the water levels, is a unique wildlife sanctuary found on Lake Naivasha. An abundance of plains game inhabits the sanctuary, which is visited on foot; one of the main attractions on the island is an albino python, an amazing sight to behold, if it is in the mood to expose itself!

 

Day 04: LAKE NAIVASHA – NAIROBI & DEPART

  • Breakfast at the Lodge/Club. In the morning, embark on a return drive to Nairobi for a direct transfer to Jomo Kenyatta Airport for your International departure flight.
