Start Nairobi and Return to Nairobi
Imagine the world famous Masai Mara less than an hour away. You’ll begin your holiday in quick comfort with an easy flight from Nairobi. Ultimate Simba Tourswill make all the arrangements – you only have to relax and enjoy beautiful Kenya from the air. In no time, you’ll touch down at the Mara and start your safari in a customized pop top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep.
The Masai Mara is the ultimate Kenya and East Africa park. Renowned for its vast acacia accented savannahs, the Mara is most famous for witnessing the great migration. This is the largest movement of wildlife on the planet with a flood of over a million wildebeest, zebra and impala seeking fresh vegetation after the rains.
Throughout your 4-day safari you’ll be treated to multiple game viewing drives. Be on the lookout for Africa’s Big Five game as the park is famous for hosting these large predators. In addition to lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino, there will be opportunities to view cheetah, hyena and jackal.
Then, take in the vast herds of the great migration which you can safely observe from your 4 x 4 Jeep. This great swath of wildebeest and zebra cross the Mara River, braving the awaiting crocodile. All the elements of a life and death drama occur here as the cycle of nature unfolds again and again. No one who has seen the river crossing can ever forget it.
There will be other opportunities to experience the varied wildlife of the Mara such as guided game walks. Here you can get closer to the smaller animals and enjoy the varied birdlife that blankets the reserve.
The Maasai people have inhabited these lands for eons. You can enjoy an optional visit to one of their villages to learn first-hand about their cattle-raising culture. And, for spectacular views of the savannah and its immense population of wildlife, treat yourself to a hot air balloon ride for incredible vistas.
On day 4 of your flight-safari journey, there will be two additional game drives – before and after breakfast, prior to your quick flight back to Nairobi.
