Days/3 Nights Maasai Mara "The Greatest Show On Earth"
Permanent Tented Camp
from July to October, a 4-day safari to the Maasai Mara to witness
the greatest animal spectacle in the world … the annual Wildebeest
migration from the plains of the Serengeti,
"AFRICA'S LAST WILDLIFE EPIC"!
Billed as "The Greatest Show on Earth", the migration is a last
reminder of the great cyclical rhythms that Africa moved to before
the coming of the white man. This is how the continent thrived before
borders were created; how climate, flora, and fauna achieved a mysterious
balance that we have long since trampled over on the rest of the
This is a spectacle without rival. Huge herds moving up and down
the plains, grazing and calving, dodging the many predators that
share their turf…. A show not to be missed by nature lovers and
1 Nairobi - Maasai Mara
Morning departure from Nairobi, descending the escarpment and driving
along the floor of the Great Rift Valley to the Maasai town of Narok.
After a stop for refreshments, proceed to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve
with game viewing enroute to the overnight camp.
2 Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Full day game viewing with picnic lunch.
The Maasai Mara Game Reserve is an extension of the Serengeti and
covers an area of around 1500 square kilometres. It is the most
popular of Kenya's parks and is rich in resident game with over
95 species recorded. After calving at the beginning of the year,
the wildebeest remain in the Serengeti until April or May when the
grasses are plentiful. Around June the Serengeti dries up and the
wildebeest begin to move north in search of greener pastures. Accompanied
by hundreds of zebra, the huge herds move across the rolling plains
towards the Kenyan border. On reaching the Maasai Mara around July,
they begin their lemming-like dash across the Mara River, with many
being lost due to drowning, or being taken by crocodiles. The next
few weeks are spent grazing in the rich grasslands of the Mara.
In September or October, the herds begin gathering for the return
journey across the river and back to the Serengeti. Naturalists
estimate that the wildebeest cover between 800 and 1100 kilometres
a year on their circular migration from the Serengeti to the Mara
3 Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Another full day of game viewing in this natural wonderland. Each
day brings new discoveries, and being in the right place at the
right time is the name of the game. Return to the camp for dinner
4 Maasai Mara - Nairobi
After breakfast we undertake a morning gamedrive before leaving the Reserve. After exiting the gate, we can make a short stop at one of the local Maasai manyattas, (optional), to enable you to take photos, and to give you a brief glimpse into their way of life. We continue via Narok to Nairobi, arriving late afternoon.
The migration is governed by the rains of Tanzania and Kenya and
is therefore unpredictable. No guarantees can be given that you
will see the wildebeest migrating or view them crossing the river
as this may happen earlier or later than expected. The only guarantee
is that you will see plenty of game, and that you will be given
the opportunity to witness as much as possible.
