Welcome to Kenya! Upon arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, you will be greeted by a local representative and given a short safari briefing about your upcoming group safari adventure. Following this informational meeting, you will be transferred to your lodge to get settled into your room and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure.


Nairobi is the vibrant capital city of Kenya, and the fourth largest city in all of Africa. Although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief, there are truly some fascinating attractions to be discovered here. Some of these highlights include the cafe culture, animated nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably, just 20 minutes from the city center, wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve. Laid out before a backdrop of city skyscrapers, the Nairobi National Park features wide open grass plains and barren landscape. Home to an impressive assortment of birds and wildlife, many Nairobi residents find this rural escape, the perfect antidote to the nearby hustle and bustle of city life.

Following lunch, you can spend the rest of your afternoon relaxing by the pool and waiting for the temperature to cool down so you can head out on your first Mara game drive! The Masai Mara is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves. Acacia dotted plains, tree-lined rivers and woodlands are abundant with wildlife and an array of bird life.

Game viewing is spectacular all year round. You may see a pride of lions stalking their prey, observe a herd of elephants and their fascinating social structure, or even see pods of hippos wallowing in the rivers. The great wildebeest migration is one of nature’s true wonders. An estimated two million animals migrate in a year round pattern through Tanzania and Kenya, following the rain. Around July each year, the huge herds begin dramatic river crossings and the grasslands of the Mara become covered by a mass of moving wildebeest, offering easy targets for crocodiles and other predators that are never far away. When in the Mara, you will also have the opportunity to visit a traditional Maasai village or take a balloon safari at an extra cost.

This evening, you will head back to the camp for dinner. Sit back, relax and reminisce on all of the many memorable highlights of your day.

Masai Mara Game Reserve

The Masai Mara is one of the best-known reserves in the whole of Africa and is globally renowned for its exceptional wildlife. Despite comprising only 0.01% of Africa’s total landmass, more than 40% of Africa’s larger mammals can be found here. The Maasai Mara lies in the Great Rift Valley. The large plains and open grasslands are habitat to rich and varied wildlife such as lion, leopard, cheetah, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, crocodile etc. There are also several species of birds such as vultures, herons, shrikes, etc. The animals are at liberty to move outside the park into huge areas known as 'dispersal areas'. There can be as much wildlife roaming outside the park as inside. Many Maasai villages are located in the 'dispersal areas' and they have, over centuries, developed a special relationship with the wildlife. The annual migration of millions of wildebeest and antelope, from July to September, is a spectacle never to be missed by any visitor to the Mara.
