4-DAY AFRICA FLYING SAFARI FROM NAIROBI TO THE MASAI MARA

Our Big Air Tour

Starting from/returning to Nairobi area hotels, the international airport, or the location of your choice.

We’ll bring you to local Wilson Airport for the easy flight to the Masai Mara. And later fly you back to Nairobi

Four big days at Kenya’s most popular park, the Masai Mara National Reserve – and you’ll arrive in style – flying in on your Air Kenya or Safari Link flight. What a great way to do a deep exploration into this beautiful park, the richest ecosystem in the region, home to big cats, elephants, and the Great Migration.

We’ll pick you up from the location of your choice for the quick ride to Wilson Airport. At around 10:30 am you’ll lift off and enjoy Kenya from above – the fields, farms, and forests, with views of Africa’s mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro on your way to the great park.

You’ll touch down at a convenient airstrip and be welcomed by your Africa Kenya Safaris driver – your host and guide for the next four days. He’ll grab your bags and you’ll be ushered to a private, open-sided/open-top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep. And your Africa safari adventure begins.

You can stop to freshen up at your safari lodge or tented camp, or go right on to enjoy the exploration of your first game drive in the Masai Mara.

What’s Cool About the Masai Mara?

If you’ve heard about any safari game park in the world, it was probably the Mara. Known for its many prides of lions, the park also boasts numerous leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, and crocodiles.

This is where you come to see elephants, giraffes, buffalo, rhino, antelope, gazelle – the list goes on – over 95 species of mammals. And hundreds of species of birds over these green rolling hills, dotted with Africa’s beautiful and singular acacia trees.

You’ll want to go down to the Mara River where the wildebeests and zebra cross over during the Great Migration. This spectacular influx of wildlife is unparalleled anywhere in the world and will leave you, as it does us… in awe.

You’ll never run out of sights or activities at the Masai Mara. Take a break from the wildlife and enjoy a cultural moment, visiting with the local Maasai people in one of their nearby villages. You’ll get to meet the people, learn about their lives and perhaps even pick up a beaded souvenir of their hand-crafted work. 

Perhaps the most memorable activity in the Mara is an early morning balloon safari over the park. Lift off as the new day breaks over the reserve and float over the landscapes with their wildlife below. A signature moment in your safari!

Day 1

Nairobi – Masai Mara

2 Hour Flight

Meals: Lunch & Dinner

9:00 am  – It’s never too early to head out on safari, so grab your bags for the quick ride to Wilson Airport where you’ll board your Air Kenya or Safari Link flight. We’ll take off at roughly 10:30 am for the scenic journey over homesteads and views of towering Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance.

In no time we’ll be settling down on the airstrip where your Africa Kenya Safaris guide will be waiting with an open-sided/open-topped 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep. Hop aboard and let’s get this safari started!

You’ll soon be greeted by the sight of rolling hills, dotted with Africa’s signature acacia trees. Look about – there’s wildlife everywhere on these savannahs. The Mara is the richest ecosystem in the region and you’ll soon be tracking for big cats, elephants, giraffes, antelope, and dozens of other species.

Your guide will bring you down to the Mara River, site of the Great Wildebeest Migration. In season you’ll be treated to a scene of thousands of them along with zebras and gazelle making their annual trek into the parklands.

Come evening, you can’t miss the Mara’s dramatic sunset – a heavenly display of color filling the land and sky. You’ll head to your safari lodge or tented camp for a relaxing dinner and time to reflect on this momentous day.

Day 2

Full Day at Masai Mara

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

The early morning is a serene time in the park, the wildlife edging out from the night’s shelter searching for their first food of the day. You’ll appreciate the soft sunlight over the savannah as you head out on your game drive.

Your guide will discuss different areas of the park you might want to visit depending on the type of wildlife that interests you.

But you won’t want to miss the activity down at the Mara River. We’ll include a packed lunch for you, so settle in and observe the wildebeests and zebra cross-over during the season of the Great Migration (July – October). It’s an awesome display of grazers meeting and fleeing from the predators of the reserve – first crocodiles, then lion, cheetah, and leopard.

During your stay in the park, you can enjoy as many game drives as you please… but you’re free to design your safari as you wish. Want to enjoy some downtime at your accommodation? Just tell your guide – the choice is always yours.

Come late afternoon we may pause for a “sundowner” – a cocktail served out on a grassy spot as you gaze upon the park’s wildlife and rolling hills reaching out to the horizon. We’ll head back to our accommodation on this second night to relax and share the day’s sightings over dinner.

Day 3

Full Day at Masai Mara

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

It’s often said the ultimate luxury is time. You’re one of the lucky few who get to spend this much time discovering the wonders of this world-famous park.

Talk with your guide about some new areas to explore and perhaps look for wildlife you haven’t yet spotted.

With your extra time, you can take advantage of several optional activities the park has to offer. Your guide will be happy to bring you to a nearby village to meet the local Maasai people. You’ll get a close-up view of their culture, customs, and ceremonies.

For an unforgettable, signature Mara experience, sign-up for the optional hot air balloon safari over the park. You’ll head out before dawn and rise with the sun as the Mara comes to life below. A gentle breeze will move you over the park and you’ll see the wildebeest, zebra, and all manner of wildlife. Then, settling back down upon terra firma, get ready for a royal feast of a breakfast, laid out on long tables, complete with champagne.

Our third and final safari night will be spent relaxing at our safari lodge or tented camp.

Day 4

Masai Mara – Nairobi

2 Hour Flight

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch & Dinner

By now, you’re an experienced safari-goer and may want to revisit some key sites of the last few days. Just tell your guide if you have any special requests.

You’ve probably spotted lots of big game but have you seen fox, hyena, topi, or eland? The park teems with smaller wildlife which your guide will be delighted to track.

We’ll enjoy breakfast and a final game drive as we head back to the airstrip. No doubt you’ve developed a more sensitive eye for discovering the game all about you.

Your Nairobi flight will lift off at about 11:15 am for the approximately two-hour flight back to Wilson Airport. An Africa Kenya Safaris representative will be there to greet you and bring you back to the location of your choice.

You’ve now experienced the fun of a flight safari and four days at the Masai Mara. We’re certain you’re filled with exciting memories and perhaps photos of your adventure. Want to explore some of our other parks? We at Africa Kenya Safaris will be only too happy to host your next safari exploration. Thank you for your time – it has been our privilege hosting you.
