This 3 Days Masai Mara safari is one of the Kenya wildlife safaris that take you to explore the immense Masai Mara and the teeming wildlife in the game reserve.
This trip starts off in Nairobi from where you will be driven to Masai Mara, arriving just in time for lunch before your adventure can start. In Masai Mara National Reserve, you will go on various game drive safaris to see animals such as wildebeest, elephants, leopards, lions, buffalos, zebras, giraffes, and hippos among others.
Masai Mara has big herds of wildlife, and if your safari is during the season for the great wildebeest migration, you will get to enjoy the chaotic rhythm of millions of animals crossing from Serengeti to Masai Mara, and trying to dodge the sharp teeth of crocodiles in the Mara River.
This trip is intended for someone who specifically wants to experience the Masai Mara but can be customized to add other destinations as you prefer.
Take a look at the detailed day-by-day breakdown to see how this safari would work out for you.
As with all our safari packages, we can customize the program to fit your personal preferences. Just reach out to us and we’ll be eager to help you.
