3 Days Masai Mara Air Safari from Nairobi

One of the most coveted safari destinations is the Masai Mara Game Reserve. If you enjoy game viewing with a beautiful sunset, and eating some of the best Kenyan-style meals, then you need to visit the Masai Mara reserve.

The reserve offers a choice of luxury lodges and camps. You will get to see big game, as well as enjoy fun, memorable activities. From Nairobi to the Mara, then back to the bustling city, here is what you can expect from your 3-day trip.

Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara Game Reserve

The day starts with a pickup by your driver from your Nairobi accommodations. You will drive through the city to Wilson airport to catch your flight to the Masai Mara game reserve.

While you are on your flight, we encourage you to stay awake and look out for the beautiful sights. You will catch a magnificent view of the snowcapped peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

You will also see the Great Eastern Rift Valley. When you arrive, you will meet a driver who will take you to the accommodations.

After check-in, you will enjoy a nice lunch before leaving for the afternoon game drive. It is here that you will catch your first Mara sunset.

Day 2: Masai Mara Game Reserve Tour

Day two is an opportunity to enjoy all that the Mara has to offer. You have a whole day of exploring waiting for you, but first, you will enjoy a breakfast bathed in the warm sunrise.

Your guide will then take you into the reserve in search of the big five. The reserve is home to all five and other species as they interact with each other. This is a chance to interact with the animals from a close perspective. Bring a good camera and some binoculars to spot the elusive species.


You will enjoy a Kenyan-style barbecue for lunch at a lovely eatery before returning to your exploration mission. The afternoon will drift into the evening for dinner, awash the stunning orange sunset. You will then enjoy a luxurious stay at your accommodations.

Day 3: Masai Mara to Nairobi

The third day starts with an early morning to catch the beautiful sunrise as it washes over the reserve. You will explore the reserve on a morning game drive, where you will get to see the early grazers and morning predators.

This is the ideal time to view animals as they come to the
watering hole for a drink and natural interactions.

After this morning game drive, you will return to the lodge for breakfast and check-out. The journey back to Nairobi involves a trip to a local Masai village.

This is an opportunity to interact with the locals. You could also learn about the rich culture, as well as buy locally-made souvenirs. We will then transfer you from the accommodations to the airstrip, where you will catch a flight back to Nairobi. Then a car will take you back to your accommodations.
