Day 1: Arrival and Tour of Nairobi

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Nairobi, the capital of Kenya! Nairobi National Park can be viewed from the air just before the plane’s arrival in the city and is best appreciated from a window seat. The proximity to the city’s 117-square-kilometer (73 square-mile) park is just one of several features that sets this city apart. Many of Africa’s wild animal species live in peace and freedom in this enormous protected area, which is not a zoo.

You will be met by a private driver at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and driven to your accommodation. Nairobi, Kenya’s capital and largest city, was established in the late 19th century by colonial authorities in British East Africa as a rail depot on the Uganda Railway. Today, it is home to over six million people. Enkare Nairobi (cold water) is a Maasai word that refers to the Nairobi River, which runs through the

city’s heart.

As for the rest of the day, you can use it as you see fit for adventure. After your travels, you may want to relax or check out the city’s many shops, restaurants, and flea markets. Dine in a real Kenyan restaurant or café to round out the day.

You will check into your Nakuru hotel before lunchtime. You have the rest of the afternoon at your leisure to discover Lake Nakuru, National Park.

Day 3: Transfer to Maasai Mara Park

After breakfast in Nakuru, you’ll travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve (157 miles/242 kilometers) near Tanzania. ” Maasai Mara, “The jewel of Kenya’s parks,” Maasai Mara, is full of wildlife and birds. Arriving late afternoon, you’ll have time to recover before dinner. Don’t worry—you can explore tomorrow! The Serengeti habitat, famous for its wildlife migrations, extends into the park.

Around a million animals, including wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle, migrate from the Serengeti in northern Tanzania across the Mara River into Kenya yearly for fresh food. Migration occurs from late June until September. The fittest and luckiest wildebeests survive this crossing, while hundreds are carried away by the fast-moving Mara River, and crocodiles murder others.

Day 4: Culture and Big Five in Maasai Mara

Explore Maasai Mara the whole day after breakfast! Before seeing wildlife, take an optional visit to a Maasai community to learn about their amazing culture. Our excursion includes meeting “the Morans,” teenage Maasai soldiers who guard their towns. Morans had to kill a lion to become men.

Traditional dances by men and women start the visit. From here, a guide will show you the village’s customs, including how to make fire with sticks and animal excrement. You can also visit Maasai villagers’ homes and see how they live. After the trip, you can buy village-made gifts and trinkets to give back.

Safari after lunch. One of the world’s seven new wonders, Maasai Mara is a conservation area. Safaris let you completely appreciate Africa’s wide plains, abundant wildlife, and stunning scenery.
