9 Days Maasai Mara and Nairobi.



Nairobi – Masai Mara
Day 1
Depart Nairobi and drive north down the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. We take a brief stop at Viewpoint for a few camera shots of this amazing natural phenomenon. The history of this valley dates back to thousands of years during some great earth movements that caused massive shifting of the earth’s foundation rocks. This massive valley (6000kms long and 80kms wide) stretches from the Israel down through East Africa to Mozambique in Southern Africa holding along great lakes. (e.g. Victoria, Turkana, Baringo, Bogoria, Nakuru, Naivasha, Elementaita, Magadi, Natron, Tanganyika, etc). Drive through the Great Rift Valley, the dramatic landscape and the plains inhabited by the Maasai pastoralists and across the ‘bread basket’ of Kenya covered with acres of wheat and barley. We take a stop at Narok for refueling. Then climb the western wall entering Hemingway’s country; “Serengeti Plains”. The Masai Mara Game Reserve adjoins Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and is reached in time for lunch at the Camp. At 4pm proceed for an evening game viewing drive in search of black manned Lions, Elephants, Leopards, Cheetahs, Buffalos and other plains game. The sighting of Rhino and Leopard cannot be guaranteed and luck is a necessary factor as they are sparsely numbered, very shy and elusive. Return to the Ol Moran Tented Camp for dinner and overnight on FB Basis.

Day 2
After breakfast at 0730hrs, start tracking game with your Tropical Wild Expeditions Guide in this Reserve which borders Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park as only an artificial border separates the two. Meaning dotted plains in the Maasai language, Mara is a vast area with scattered pockets of Acacia woodland inhabiting a wide variety of fauna. The Masai Mara is renowned for staging the Great Migration, recently named as the seventh wonder of the modern world. A full day (from 0800-1600 hrs) is spent game viewing across the rich, tree studded grassland and rolling hills. This reserve is the most visited Park in Kenya and the best for game as it has an extensive road and track network, which allows excellent photography and close viewing opportunities. The famous Mara is renowned for its great herds of plains game, black manned Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs. It also has numerous Elephants and virtually every type of wildlife to be found in Kenya. Antelopes, Wildebeests, Zebras and Maasai Giraffes can be seen as well as scavengers like Hyenas and Vultures. Bird life is also prolific with over 450 species having been recorded. Enjoy a picnic lunch besides the river as you watch Hippos and with luck Crocodiles on the river bank. We return to the Camp at 4pm.
