3 DAY FROM DIANI BEACH – FLY-IN – MASAI MARA

ALLFLIGHT SAFARI

Starting from/returning to your Diani Beach or other coastal resort.

We’ll bring you to Diani Airport for the quick flight to the Masai Mara.

And later fly you back to the coast.

You will totally maximize your Africa safari time in the park with this exciting fly-in adventure. What an incredible contrast – the easy, lush sands of Diani Beach with the crisp safari action of tracking big game at world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve. And we’ll have you at the park in just a few hours – a most unique safari vacation!

Imagine, grabbing your bags for the quick trip to Diani Airport, where you’ll board your Mombasa Air Safari flight. As your plane rises you’ll catch views of the coast and then vast swaths of the rich Kenyan countryside. In no time the rolling hills and savannahs of the great park will come into view.

You’ll lightly touch down at an airstrip near the park, where your Africa Kenya Safaris guide will greet you with your private open-sided/open-top 4 x 4 safari Jeep. Congratulations! You’ve just saved hours of travel by road – now you can begin your game drives at this exciting iconic park where lions, leopards, cheetahs, and so much more await your discovery.

For three days we’ll show you the wonders and the secrets of the Masai Mara. You may not even want to return to your vacation at the beach!

What’s Cool About The Masai Mara?

Probably the most famous park in the world, the Masai Mara is an exceptionally rich ecosystem, alive with over 95 types of mammals. Here you’ll find all the big cats but also great herds of elephants, giraffes, buffalo, and even the rare and endangered rhino.

Now picture all this wildlife set upon a landscape of green rolling hills, painted with iconic acacia trees that frame the dawning and evening sun with photographic perfection.

The Mara is also the site of the Great Wildebeest Migration, an unbelievable spectacle of thousands of wildebeests, zebra, and gazelle advancing into the park on their yearly trek searching for water and taller grasses on which to feed.

We want to share more special activities to enhance your safari in Africa while on your three-day tour: a visit with the local Maasai people can be a meaningful cultural moment. And we also offer another type of air safari – treat yourself to an early morning hot air balloon journey over the park. This is one adventure you’ll be talking about for years.

Day 1

Diani Beach – Masai Mara

2 Hour Flight

Meals: Lunch & Dinner

6:30 am – Ready to safari? You may be groggy-eyed but the wildlife is waiting. We’ll pick you up from your beach resort for the short ride to Diani Airport. Lifting off about 8 am, you’ll take in the plains and homesteads below and see the towering snow-capped form of Mt. Kilimanjaro rising in the distance.

You’ll soon touch down at an airstrip bordering the Masai Mara, where your Africa Kenya Safaris guide will welcome you to the park and usher you to a private open-sided/open-top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep – your wildlife viewing platform for the next three days.

Next, you can stop to freshen up at your accommodation, or head straight into your first game drive at this rich eco-system. Throughout your Africa safari, you’ll enjoy as many game drives as you please.

Your guide is a wonderful source of inspiration, fun, and adventure. He’ll tell you all about the park, the wildlife, and answer any questions you may have. You can also plan with him which parts of the park you’d most like to visit, or as the days go by… revisit.

But on this first day, you’re certain to discover plenty of animal sightings as you become accustomed to the rhythms of the safari life.

As late afternoon rolls in you’ll enjoy your first Mara sunset as you head back to your lodge or tented camp for a delicious dinner and relaxation.

Day 2

Full Day at the Masai Mara

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

We’ll rise with the sun on our second safari day to catch the wildlife searching for their breakfast. This is a world of big cats – lions, leopards, cheetahs, plus elephants, giraffes, buffalo, and rhino.

But for an overwhelming wildlife experience, we’ll head down to the Mara River which is where thousands of wildebeests and zebra cross during the Great Migration. They’ll come up against the park’s predators – first crocodile, then lion, cheetahs, and during the quiet nighttime hours… leopards.

We can also include a cultural encounter with the nearby Maasai. Your safari guide will set up a visit to the local village where you’ll meet these indigenous people and learn about their history and lifestyle. You can even pick up some beaded souvenirs of your time on safari.

For a big, dramatic moment, we offer a dawn hot air balloon safari over the Mara. You’ll witness the park light up below as you travel with the currents, viewing the wildlife and the landscapes. A not-to-be-missed adventure.

Day 3

Masai Mara – Diani Beach

2 Hour Flight

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

We’re on safari so let’s make the most of the day by rising with the wildlife while the park is quiet and fresh with the early morning dew. We’ll venture out in our Jeep for some sightings of the big cats or perhaps a family of elephants marching by.

If you have any favorite viewing spots, your guide will oblige… or perhaps make suggestions for some new explorations.

But now it’s time to return to the Kenya coast. Enjoy a final game drive as you head to the airstrip where your plane awaits.

You’ll lift off at about 14:00 (2 pm) and be back at the coast at approximately 16:30 (4:30 pm) where you’ll be met by a representative of Africa Kenya Safaris who will bring you back to your resort.

An air safari is a door-to-door experience. Make the most of your Africa safari time and enjoy an easy trip to the Masai Mara. Your Africa Kenya Safaris travel experts will handle all the arrangements so you can just sit back and watch the world of safari come to you.
