4 Days Maasai Mara Wildlife Safari & Horseback Riding Tour

Masai Mara Game reserve is one of Kenya’s treasured protected areas found in the South west of Kenya. It was established in 1961 to protect wildlife from extinction, ranging from lions, wildebeests, zebras, elephants, topis among others from the poachers and illegal hunters. Masai Mara covers an area of 1,510km2   thus providing a vast space for animals to produce and reproduce.

The Park is covered by open savanna grasslands with rolling hills, two rivers crossing it – River Mara and River Talek that provide water for animals and also harbor the aquatic life like mighty hippos and gigantic crocodiles that always soar at the river banks.

Detailed tour.

Day 1: Pickup from the Hotel and transfer to Masai Mara Reserve.

In the morning after your breakfast at around 8:00 am, our professional driver guide will pick you from the hotel and transfer you to the mighty Mara reserve where you will take about 6 hours driving gently through open Mara grasslands with great chances of seeing animals besides the highway and then continue to the hotel for check-in, have dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 2: Full day Game drive

Wake up at 7:30 am in the morning, have breakfast, get your packed lunch and then be driven away into the wilderness of Mara where you will be able to see jungle’s big 5 mammals – lions, buffaloes, elephants, leopards and rhinos, not forgetting other wildlife like the zebras that always graze with wildebeests, gazelles, topis, antelopes, cheetahs, spotted hyenas, not forgetting that the Mara game reserve is a home to over 500 bird species and the birders here are able to have their day well spent, viewing wildlife as well as watching birds.

After this long day, return back at the hotel in the late evening, relax, have dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 3. Horseback riding and Masai cultural tour

In the morning have breakfast which is mouthwatering and embark on horseback riding adventure, an experience that will draw you closer to wildlife and breathe fresh air in a natural environment as you embrace the rolling hills and open savanna vegetation occupied by both grazers and browsers with predators ever looking to make a kill.

By chance you might find a cheetah chasing after a gazelle and catching it in not more than 50 seconds, you will as well go through herds of buffaloes and elephants, browsing giraffes and schools of zebras intermingled with wildebeests and this will be the great time to see animals for the second or third time.

You will later go back to the hotel for lunch and then go for a Masai cultural tour where you will find them in their Manyattas (local houses) made out of grass, wood and mud. They will entertain you through their songs, and show you how they used to live before modernity. They also have souvenirs in case you are interested you can buy and then then go back at the hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 4: Transfer back to Nairobi Airport

In the early morning at 7:30 am, have a continental breakfast, pack your luggage in the vehicle with the help of a hotel staff and then depart. Have a smooth drive to the Airport and wait for your departure flight.

End of safari.
