4 Days Masai Mara Safari Express. Wildlife viewing experiences

Overview

This 4 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.

Your expert guide who has in-depth knowledge of the reserve and all areas where great sightings can be spotted will be on the lookout for Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, Buffalo, Elephants and Rhinos, among several other mammal and bird species. Masai Mara boasts of a high wildlife density, meaning that you don’t have to drive for long distances from one sighting to another. The 1,510 square Kilometers reserve is home to over 95 mammal and 450 bird species and the ease of spotting animals in their natural habitat makes it one of the most popular reserves in the world, not just for tourists but also wildlife researchers, wildlife documentary producers and professional photographers.

From June to October, the Mara is the theatre of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle- The wildebeest migration. From June, the migrant herds which are over 1.2 million, accompanied by Zebras and other antelopes begin arriving in Masai Mara from northern Serengeti. More numbers continue arriving over the following weeks, with August being the month when the mottled plains of the Mara are flooded with marauding Gnus and the banks of the crocodile infested Mara River become the scene where dramatic crossings from one side of the reserve to the other take place regularly.

After the game drive, you will enjoy some rest time at leisure in your lodge. All meals and overnight stay at your lodge / tented camp.
