If you are at Nairobi, we wish to suggest you some accomodation you would love:
If you are on the coast, we are proud to suggest you the following accomodation:
DAY 1: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
Enjoy a quick breakfast at your hotel.
Then, meet and greet your Paka Safaris representative who will accompany you, in order to assist you during the course of this adventure. The person who will come with you will be also your safari designer, the one who created this itinerary, and professional guide.
Together you will transfer to the domestic airport.
Hop into your light-aircraft flight to Masai Mara National Reserve, just over an hour away from Nairobi and 2 hours and a half away from the coast, where your safari driver and guide will be waiting to greet you.
You’ll enjoy a game drive during the trip to your Asilia camp, where you will be spending 2 nights (minimum).
And after a fantastic lunch at the camp, you’ll enjoy your tent and relax.
You may decide also to request for your 4K video to bring home a flavour of your trip and share it with your friends. Our Paka Safaris professional cameraman will accompany you and film your once in a lifetime adventure.
In the afternoon, venture out on a game drive to explore the vast plains of Masai Mara.
The Great Migration is the largest herd movement of animals on the planet. In fact, with up to 1,000 animals per km2, the great columns of wildebeest can be seen from space.
The numbers are astonishing: over 1,2 million wildebeest and 300.000 zebra along with topi and other gazelle move in a constant cycle through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem in search of nutritious grass and water. Guided by survival instinct, each wildebeest will cover 800 to 1,000 km on its individual journey along age-old migration routes. Hungry predators – lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dog and crocs – make sure only the strongest survive.
This great event occurs between the months of July and October , every year.
And after a full day of adventure, relax in your tent while dinner is prepared for you.
DAY 2: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
Wake up early today and have your morning game drive among Mara plains with your personal guide, in search of wildlife.
Another day in the Masai Mara National Reserve will surprise you more and more.
In the afternoon you could head out on another game drive or you might want to relax in your tent or watching the river and wildlife around.
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 you may decide to fly 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 can add as many nights as you wish. The National Reserve boasts impressive herds of wildebeest, zebra, gazelles and large numbers of predators. So, you will never want to leave this place!
You may also decide to join this safari to other luxury safari programs. The best safari for you would be this tour joined together with “The Lion King“. Or, you may decide to add other 2 nights at Lewa Conservancy and / or at Kalama Conservancy, near Samburu National Park, transferring from one area to the other one by light aircraft: feel free to contact us for suggestions!
