  1. I will just give you the highlight of some of the Safari in Maasai Mara that I have done and think are the best, for more about itineraries, you can ask the tour operator, or us if you real want to have an idea of day to day activities.

    Below are some of the tours that I recommend for Maasai Mara:

    #1. Rhino Tracking and Big 5 Safari (Duration: 8 Days):

    Kenya Safari
    Fly between three different camps to experience two very landscapes in Kenya. The Mara promises classic savannah with large herds of elephant and, of course, wildebeest while Samburu is hillier and more arid, a supportive environment for more unusual species. Both have sizable populations of predators like lions, leopards and spotted hyenas.

    Highlights:

    • Track black rhino with rangers via radio
    • See the Samburu Special 5 (beisa oryx, gerenuk, Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich and reticulated giraffe)
    • Seasonal Great Wildebeest Migration viewing in the Masai Mara

    Best for:

    Adventurers, birders, families and couples

     

    #2. The Mara and Lake Naivasha (Duration: 6 Days):

    5 Best National Parks in Kenya
    It’s not only North America and the United Kingdom that have systems of great lakes, Kenya does too, thanks to the Great Rift Valley. Two of the most famous are Nakuru and Naivasha, both of which you will explore on this unusual safari.

    Highlights:

    • Stay in a classic wooden safari house with views of Naivasha and Mount Longonot
    • Optional activities like golf, hot-air ballooning and trips to Nakuru
    • One of the best sites in the Mara for game viewing

    Best for:

    Birders, families, adventurers and photographers

    #3. Luxurious Beach-and-bush Combination (Duration: 10 Days):

    It might sound odd but a safari can be exciting AND exhausting – very early mornings, long hours in the sun, late nights around the campfire. What better way to return home completely refreshed than with a few days on the beach after your safari?

    Highlights:

    • Overnight in Nairobi’s most luxurious hotel
    • Jam-packed private game viewing in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy
    • Spectacular laid-back beach resort at Galu near Diani, one of Kenya’s most beautiful beaches

    Best for:

    Couples, romantics and honeymooners

  2. This is one the Safari Tour in Maasai Mara that I highly recommend:

    # Mara Horse-riding Safari (Duration: 11 Days):


    Some safaris allow you to ditch the game-drive vehicle in favour of walking; this one let’s you saddle up a horse to gallop with the herds in a completely enthralling experience! Depending on the time of year, you could mingle with the wildebeest migrating back down to the Serengeti or trot among the resident game like zebra, Thomson’s gazelle, elephants and impala.

    Highlights:

    • Ford the Mara River at a major Migration crossing point
    • Explore a protected forest to find rare black-and-white colobus monkeys
    • See thousands of flamingos at Lake Nakuru

    Best for:

    Experienced adult riders (age restriction applies)
