DAY 1: GOVERNORS’ CAMP, MASAI MARA 

Masai Mara

One of Kenya’s undisputed natural highlights is the Masai Mara National Reserve, which sprawls across more than 1500Km² of the country’s southwest. The park protects a phenomenal array of game, including charismatic species such as elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo, as well as crocodile and hippopotamus in the Mara River. The birdlife is no less impressive, with over 450 resident bird species. However, the true highlight here is the Great Migration, recognised as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. To survive the dry months of July to September, some 1.7 million wildebeest migrate from the parched plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Along with much smaller numbers of antelope buffalo and zebra, they move to the more forgiving grasslands of the Masai Mara. In their wake come predators such as lion, hyena and cheetah, for whom these giant herds are an easy source of prey.

Day Itinerary

On arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International airport clear with customs and immigration, thereafter you will be greeted by your friendly AMA Safaris tour manager / local representative outside the baggage hall. Later transfer to Wilson airport for your flight to world-famous Masai Mara via the Great Rift Valley. Enroute enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Arrive at your lodge in time for lunch and check in at the camp. In the afternoon, enjoy an enthralling game-viewing drive. Spotting lions, cheetahs and other spectacular predators is the highlight of your day.  In the evening enjoy   dinner at the lodge.
