2-DAY Masai Mara –
MARA DISCOVERY SAFARI
Adventure to Kenya’s Most Popular Park
Starting from/returning to Nairobi area hotels, airport, or location of your choice.
We’ll pick you up in style – your own private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep.
Throughout the world, the words Masai Mara mean wildlife adventure on the broad plains of this golden park. Here you’ll find a density of lion, wildebeest, and zebra in an unparalleled display. Any trip to the Mara is a treat and this short discovery tour will take you into the heart of a busy eco-system filled with large and small game – giraffe, elephant, rhino, hippos, and crocodiles.
We’re going to pack a lot into your safari, so we’ll leave early for a quick start on our game drives through the sprawling Mara lands. You’ll travel in safari-style in your own private 4 x 4 Jeep, taking in the African sunrise over Rift Valley towers and immense horizons.
What’s Cool about Masai Mara?
Your 2-day adventure will be a series of game drives over the rolling hills of the Masai Mara searching for the big cats and the herds – in the thousands – of roaming wildlife. We’ll travel down to the Mara River, site of the annual crossing where wildebeests and crocodiles often meet in a dramatic display of survival.
The Mara is also home to the Maasai people where you can experience a village encounter, learn about their lifestyle, visit their homes, and sample their crafts.
And, if you have any special requests please let our friendly booking team know. At Africa Kenya Safaris, our only wish is to create your best safari experience.

Now you’ll come to the park’s vast expanse, with its rolling hills and savannahs. This is one of the richest eco-systems in the world, holding an amazing variety of wildlife.
Your days here will be filled with game drives, tracking the big cats plus elephant, leopard, buffalo, giraffe, and plenty more – over 95 mammals make their home here.
Lunch will be picnic style down at the Mara River. This is where innumerable herds cross during the season of the Great Migration (July – October).
After more afternoon game drives, you’ll freshen up at your Safari lodge or tented camp, then enjoy dinner and the evening’s activities.
We’re on safari time and that means an early rise to see the wildlife as it enters the awakening day. You may want to take photos of the golden morning light playing upon the hills of the park.
Breakfast follows as we fuel up for another very full safari day.
If there is any particular area you’d like to revisit just let your guide know.
You can also enjoy some optional activities here at the Mara. Ask your guide about a cultural visit with the local Maasai people. You can travel to their village, meet the people, and learn about their herding lifestyle and culture.
For an unforgettable high-flying safari adventure, try hot air ballooning over the park. You’ll get a perspective few experience, and the ride is beautiful and thrilling. Just ask your guide for details.
We will round out our 2-day journey with a final game drive as we exit the park.

We’ll arrive back in Nairobi in the early evening and bring you to the destination of your choice.
