We wish to suggest you some accomodation you would love:
DAY 1: MASAI MARA
Travel to Masai Mara Game Reserve today, to view the annual wildebeest and zebra migration herds. Peaking between July and October, one can observe an annual wildlife spectacle quite unlike any other, as over as million zebra, wildebeest and other ungalates move into the Masai Mara plains in search of water and fresh grazing.
After a game drive en route to your camp, you will reach it in time for lunch.
Afternoon game drive into the Mara grasslands.
Overstay and dinner at your camp.
You may decide to visit the exclusive Mara North Conservancy, instead Masai Mara National Reserve.
Mara North Conservancy is a protected area north of Masai Mara National Reserve, being part of the same ecosystem. It is run by local masai community and the rules here are less restrictive than within the National Reserve. It is a secluded and exclusive area, far away from mass tourism, because only those who stay in the limited number of camps and lodges in this area can visit it. Here infact you can drive off road, approching predators very closely, do walk safaris, have meals in the bush, do night game drives (here it is very common and easy to see predators on a hunt , because of the presence of big lion prides and because of off road permission). The only difference between Mara North Conservancy and the most famous Masai Mara National Reserve is that you will not be able to see the crossing of wildebeest and zebras on the Mara river within the conservancy, because wildlife don’t cross Mara River in the upper north, but you will see anyway big herds of animals on movement during migrations.

DAY 2: MASAI MARA
Today you have all the day to explore the Masai Mara in depth, with your personal guide.
During midday hours you can rest up in your tent and enjoy uninterrupted views over the river or over the plains, the perfect spot to quietly observe or contemplate the wilderness.
Between the months of July and October one million wildebeest, accompanied by vast numbers of zebra and gazelles, make the long and dangerous trek to this corner of Kenya. But if you visit Mara ecosystem during other periods, you will find a lot of wildlife anyway, with the highest concentration of herbivores and predators in all Kenya and Africa.
DAY 3: YOUR JOURNEY ENDS
It’s time to bid farewell to the bush.
After breakfast and a morning game drive you will go back to Nairobi in time to connect with your international flight or domestic flight to the coast for a Beach Holiday: you may choose to stay at our exclusive Nyumba ya Paka Boutique Hotel or you can rent our whole villa Lions House, if you are a big group.
You may decide to fly to Nairobi or to the coast, directly from one of the numerous Mara airstrip, instead to spend 5 hours or more on the road going back to Nairobi.
For those who would like to add one day more, we suggest to spend one night at Lake Naivasha.
This will give you che opportunity to take a boat and explore the calm waters of the lake, to see hippos, fish eagles and cormorants close up. Then, on the last day in the morning, you wil have the opportunity , if you like, to have a trhilling bycicle safari in the Hell’s Gate National Park.
Here you will stay at Elsamere, the former holiday house owned by the famous conservationists George and Joy Adamons. This is a place far away from mass tourism, full of charm and history, just selected for you and for your safari success.
