Day 01: Nairobi – Masai Mara
At your Hotel, you will be met by the Essenia Safaris representative for briefing. You will be introduced to your driver/guide, after which you will proceed north of Nairobi north into the Great Rift Valley with a brief stopover at the view point.
The Great Rift Valley is one of the wonders of the world, stretching from the Syria, down through Africa, stretching as far as Mozambique. The mesmerizing view, as you approach it from Nairobi is breathtaking. The ground suddenly disappears from under you to show the huge expanse of the great rift, stretching into the horizon of miles in either direction. Whilst this stunning introduction to the Rift Valley is amazing in itself, actually descending and exploring the Lakes area of the Rift in Kenya is a “not to be missed” opportunity. Proceed via the Masai town of Narok through endless savannah plains dotted with acacias and finally into the Masai Mara reserve in time for lunch and an afternoon game drive.

Day 02: Masai Mara
Depending on the Wildebeest migration patterns and the weather, early morning breakfast followed by a full day of game drives within the reserve. The Masai Mara is famous for its black mane lions and the annual wildebeest migration.
This is probably one of Kenya’s most visited reserve with an extraordinary density of animals including the Big five and many other varieties of plains game. The Mara River cuts through the Mara and Serengeti eco systems giving life to the both reserves finally pouring out into the Lake Victoria.
Impressive and most notable is the wildebeest, zebra and gazelle instinct led migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya. This journey is coupled by numerous obstacles which makes it even more magnificent. You will have a picnic lunch and continue with the game drives arriving at the lodge in the evening for a well deserved rest and hot relaxing shower.
