3 Days Nairobi Kenya to Masai Mara National reserve Kenya Safari

This magical safari isolates you to the famous Masai Mara National Reserve.

Deservingly nicknamed ‘the hub of wildlife in Kenya, the reserve is home to various species, including mammals, reptiles, and birds.

It is also here that you can witness the Great Migration. So what does this exhilarating trip have
to offer?

Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara National Reserve

On the first day, a driver will pick you up in the morning from a pre-determined location in Nairobi. Ensure that you pack everything you need as the driver will arrive on time.


Then prepare for a fun road trip passing by scenic places in southwestern Kenya. Bring your camera and capture the memories. You should arrive about 5 hours later, at lunchtime.


Your driver will take you to your accommodations for checking in. After this, you will enjoy lunch and freshen up.


Then a park ranger will pick you up in a comfy park vehicle and take you on the afternoon game drive. You will meet stunning creatures, including all of the big five.
Lions lying lazily in the grasslands, leopards atop trees feasting on prey, rhinos, large herds of elephants, and buffaloes.


You will also see grazers such as impalas, zebras, giraffes, gazelles, and more. This is all before a scenic sunset trip back to accommodations for a delicious Kenyan-style dinner.

Day 2: Masai Mara National Reserve Safari

Day two gives you more wildlife explorations from different perspectives. It starts with an early morning game drive. This is at 6 am, after light coffee or tea.
Your driver will take you to various watering holes to see exciting wildlife interactions. You will also get to see big cats preparing for the morning hunt.
If you are lucky, you may also see the hunting process, a thrilling and action-filled scene.

After this, you will go back for a full breakfast.
In the mid-morning, the driver will take you on a game drive, and you can pass by the hot air balloon spot. This optional activity sees you soaring in the air to get a Birdseye view of the Mara.

In the afternoon, you will enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the scenic spots. Then a guide will take you on a walking safari which depends on the camp/lodge your staying.

You will see some of the smaller, non-predatory creatures that you cannot see in a vehicle, such as aardvarks, honey badgers, the South African spring hare, and various species of mongooses.


Be on the lookout for overhead habitants because the reserve is home to hundreds of bird species. The Mara is the only place you can see over 300 bird species in a span of 24 hours.


After your tour, the driver will pick you up and take you back to the accommodations. But not before you take some pictures in the sunset.

Day 3: Masai Mara National Reserve to Nairobi

Finally, day three starts with an early morning game drive before breakfast. Capture the sunrise before returning to your accommodations for full breakfast and checking out.


Then it is back to Nairobi on a relaxing road trip.
