About this tour

Maasai Mara Safari 4 Days – Explore the magical Kenya by indulging into the beautiful Masai Mara National Reserve where the Masai coexist in harmony with wildlife.

A delightful journey that takes you through breathtaking undulating landscapes and sceneries, dotted with amazing history, culture, and welcoming people. These beautiful servings of delights eventually lead you to The Masai Mara, Kenya’s finest and most outstanding wildlife sanctuary. Here, the gentle rolling savannah grassland ensures that the game is never out of sight. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot, and well-spread rainfall year-round. The sensation of the great wildebeest migration between July and October is unparalleled.

The wildlife is far from being confined within the Reserve boundaries and an even larger area extends beyond the game Reserve. Centuries of close association with the wildlife have resulted in an almost symbiotic relationship where wildlife and Masai people live in peace with one another. The first sight of this game reserve is breathtaking. There is nowhere else on earth to compare with this wildlife marvel. Welcome to the Masai Mara!

The famous big-game hunters first coined the term “Big 5” for some good reason. This was as a way to acknowledge that these species were the most difficult and dangerous to track and bring down. Thankfully, in subsequent years the term has been re-purposed by the conservation-mindful tourism players who have now shifted their focus towards the conservation of both flora and fauna.  Alongside the Big 5, other tremendous species of birds and wildlife also inhabit this dynamic ecosystem. The list could be as long as from the hyenas, gazelles, impalas, giraffes, zebras, and the eland and with birds ranging from vultures, bustards, eagles, starlings, falcons, sunbirds and ostriches, many of which are easily spotted during our game drive through the Masai Mara.
