From US $ 720 per person

This trip is available for extension to the famous Masai mara before you flight back Home. Journey on a 3-day safari to Kenya’s famous Masai Mara Reserve, one of Africa’s finest game reserves.

Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara – Kenya
Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, we drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley. We arrive at our luxury tented camp near Masai Mara in time for lunch.

Then we take our first thrilling game drive in the Masai Mara game reserve, one of East Africa’s top safari destinations. The Mara reserve incorporates 1510 km² of incredible, wide-open landscapes and fertile riveline woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife.

Returning from our first foray into Masai Mara we have dinner and relax under the stars, falling asleep to the sounds of the bush.

Spend the day in Masai Mara, Kenya’s most popular game reserve where you will have the best opportunity of spotting the Big Five – lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant, Game drives are flexible, with the option of going out with picnic lunch boxes to spend entire day in the park, or you can choose to have early morning and late afternoon game drives. You will also have the option of visiting a local Masai village (at a cost of US$20 per person).

The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of greener grass before turning south again in October.
Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming

Day 3: Masai Mara to Nairobi – Kenya
We depart from our safari camp and take a morning game drive through the Masai Mara Reserve on day three. Then we return to bustling Nairobi, arriving at about 15:00 in the afternoon. This unforgettable 3-Day Budget Masai Mara Camping Safari ends upon arrival back in Nairobi.
