9 Days Kenya & Tanzania Combo Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Pick up Nairobi / Transfer Masai Mara National Reserve

Pick up from your hotel or airport in the morning at 0730hrs. Drive through the floor of Great Rift Valley with a magnificent view of Mount Longonot then via Narok town to arrive at your camp in time for lunch.

Day 2: Masai Mara National Reserve

The Mara reserve is 1510 km² of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife. Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. The ultimate action here is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.

A full-day game drive with picnic lunch until sunset. Dinner and Overnight at the camp/lodge.
