5-Day Masai Mara Safari: Masai Mara Game Reserve & Amboseli National Park

5-Day Masai Mara Safari: Masai Mara Game Reserve & Amboseli National Park

Daily Private Safari Tour by 4x4 jeep

2 Famous Parks – Nairobi to Nairobi

Departs from / returns to Nairobi airport / Nairobi area hotels. We’ll pick you up in your own private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep.

Journey to Kenya’s two most popular parks, spending several days at each on this medium-length African safari. This is an exciting combination of scenic parks and bountiful wildlife. World-famous Masai Mara is home to the Great Migration and a rich concentration of big cats. Amboseli is a photographer’s dream with its postcard views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and grand, majestic herds of elephants. These five days will be filled with sightings and timeless memories.

Enjoy this amazing safari in a customized pop-up roof Natural World 4×4 Safari Jeep that includes: Portable fridge/Cooler Box, 4 Binoculars, long-range high-frequency radio, Sand bags, 4G/LTE broadband WIFI connectivity, Power Outlets AC 230V, First Aid Kit, Safari Guide Books – Baby Seats and Side Steps available on request… and above all, a professional multi-lingual safari guide who will ensure you have an unforgettable safari experience.

No park in the world sees as many animals as the great Masai Mara National Reserve. A flourishing ecosystem that hosts all of Africa’s Big Five, the reserve is an exciting mix of wildlife, savannah, rolling hills, and iconic acacia trees adorning the landscape. If you’re here during the Great Migration (July – October) you’ll witness the influx of wildebeest and zebra crossing the Mara River into the park on their yearly cycle of survival – an awesome sight! Spending several days at Masai Mara brings a new appreciation for the awe and depth of nature.

Our second destination, Amboseli National Park is like a postcard with its iconic views of Africa’s tallest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro. The game spotting is active in this smaller park. You can’t miss the massive herds of elephants marching before you and the great mountain rising beyond them in stunning relief. Look for lion, buffalo, and cheetah in this versatile reserve. The birdlife is also abundant, boasting pelican, kingfisher, heron, and eagle.

You can see why these two parks are Kenya’s most popular and sure to thrill with their many natural gifts.

NAIROBI – MASAI MARA  (Appx: 265kms – 5-6 hrs)

Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

05:00 hrs.  Your driver/guide will pick you up from your Nairobi area hotel, Nairobi airport or Nairobi area residence and head out in our 4 x 4 Jeep for the Masai Mara.

We’ll break up our drive with a stop at the town of Narok for breakfast and arrive at the Mara around mid-morning

We’ve arrived at perhaps the most well-known wildlife park in the world, home to an incredible diversity and concentration of wild animals. All the Big Five are here with a special emphasis on the cats such as lion, leopard, and cheetah.

We’ll fill our day with game drives over the deep savannah looking for the big game plus warthog, hyena, zebra, and many more hunters and grazers.

There will be a picnic lunch breaking up the day with time to relax, should you desire.

We’ll spend the first of two nights at the Masai Mara at the safari lodge or tented camp of your choice.

Masai Mara Game Reserve – full day

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

We’ll be up early to enjoy the awakening day and the birdsong on the great reserve. This is a day of unlimited game drives so get ready to check off the animals on your “to see” list.

The Masai Mara features the greatest density of wildlife in this region of Africa and you’re right in the middle of the action.

Should you be here during the Great Migration (July – October) you’ll be witness to the sight of thousands of gazelle, zebra, and wildebeest streaming over the Mara River in search of sustenance.

We’ll visit the river and enjoy a picnic lunch, checking out the hippos, crocodiles and other wildlife action play out before us.

If you wish, you can take an optional visit to the local Maasai people in their village. You’ll learn about their customs, herding lifestyle, and perhaps pick up some of their beaded handiwork.

Another optional treat – an early morning hot air balloon safari over the Masai Mara! Watch the park come alive and the animals parade in their timeless migration – an unforgettable vision. Just ask your driver/guide to make arrangements.

Our final night at the Masai Mara will be at the safari lodge or tented camp of your choice.

Masai Mara to Amboseli (520 km – Approx. 9 Hrs)

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We’ll be up before the birds on an early morning departure to Amboseli Park.

Traveling past fields and farmland, we’ll make stops along the way to appreciate Kenya’s natural scenery.

We’ll also take a lunch break to stretch and relax.

Arriving at Amboseli Park in the afternoon, there will be time for a game drive and to get acquainted with the reserve.

At the park’s southern boundary stands the towering form of Mt. Kilimanjaro, a constant presence looking over the rich variety of wildlife all about in this smaller park.

Toward evening the mountain’s snow-capped peak may be revealed as the high-altitude cloud cover can burn off, leaving us with a perfect vista of one of Africa’s most inspirational sites.

We’ll spend the first of two nights at Amboseli at your choice of safari lodge or tented camp.

Full Day Amboseli National park

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The day will be filled with game drives and relaxation time as well.  Just tell your driver/guide how much you’d like of each.

But we’ll be up early for a pre-breakfast safari through the park as the elephant families march to their favorite watering holes.

We’ll travel by Jeep to our favorite watering hole – our lodge or tented camp for a hearty, safari breakfast. Then we’ll fill out the morning on another relaxed game drive.

The foliage is sparse at Amboseli which makes for easier game spotting.

We’ll take an easy lunch and plan our afternoon. Your driver/guide is an expert and can discuss the different regions of the park to explore, such as its marshes, lakes or woodlands.

Toward evening, look for another wonderful African sunset and maybe the clear, snowy summit of Kilimanjaro. Have your camera ready!

We’ll spend our second night at Amboseli at your safari lodge or tented camp.

Amboseli – Nairobi

Meal plan: Breakfast, lunch

It’s our last safari morning but we’ve got plans to pack in as much as possible. We’ll start with a pre-breakfast game drive and see who else we can check off our list.

Breakfast follows, surrounded by all the beauty of nature and then another mid-morning drive through the park. There will be time to visit any spots you may have missed.

Then we’re off to Nairobi with a stop for lunch on the way.

We should arrive at about 16:30 hrs. (4:30 pm).

We’ll bring you to your hotel, residence or the airport.
