Highlights of the tour
Detailed tour description
A three-day safari in The Maasai Mara is the best way to quickly see all of Africa's most famous animals. This tour is ideal for those who have little time, and want all the fun at once! Masai Mara Park is one of Kenya's main attractions. It is located in the south-west of the country and is connected to the Tanzanian Serengeti Reserve, which is, in fact, an extension of the Maasai Mara.
Hospitable Kenya is happy to welcome you! Your Big Safari will begin with the arrival in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. At the airport you will be met by a representative of our company, who will transport to the world-famous reserve Masai Mara (travel time 6 hours). As an alternative, a 1-hour flight from Nairobi to Masai Mara is available.
Check-in in the lodge, lunch and the evening safari. A great opportunity to have one of the most spectacular and memorable experiences in your life. A ride in powerful 4x4 jeeps through a delightful savannah in the rays of the pre-sunset sun, during which you are given the opportunity to observe the animals inhabiting these fertile places in their natural habitat. You will see the "big five" - a lion, an elephant, a buffalo, a black rhino and a leopard. You will also see rare birds, zebras and antelopes, graceful giraffes and fast cheetahs, and this is far from a complete list of inhabitants of the park, which you will be able to see at close range. Return to the lodge. Dinner.
You will spend the entire day in the Masai Mara National Park. The exceptional beauty of Masai Mara Park, the wide savannah, hills, winding rivers, different species of birds and rare wildlife will leave no one indifferent!
Your day will start at 06:00 - enjoy an early safari in search of wildlife! Some of the species are already resting after a night of hunting, and some only just wakes up and start their day with you. In addition to Big Five, you will be able to observe the spotted hyenas, graceful impala antelopes, Thompson gazelles, Grant's gazelles and topi that also graze here.
A picnic-style lunch awaits you on the banks of the Mara River. A meal by the water overlooking the savannah - what else can a true researcher of Africa dream of? Return to the lodge. Dinner.
After a delicious breakfast, a tour of the Maasai village. It is impossible to come to Kenya and to not visit the Maasai. There are about 40 different tribes in Kenya, of which the Maasai is one of the most colorful. This tribe still holds fast to its culture and has not lost faith in their spirits and pagan gods. Small, up to eight huts Maasai villages are scattered almost all over Kenya. Those that are located near the national parks, have become accustomed to tourists and will meet you with dancing and performances, but even this prepared performance will open a window into the wonderful world and life of these unique people.Then travel 5-6 hours to Lake Naivasha. Check-in in the lodge. Lunch.
Naivasha is a unique freshwater lake of volcanic origin located in the famous Fault Valley. The diverse fauna is densely populated by the inhabitants of the equatorial forests. The area adjacent to the lake is considered a national park and is one of the most visited natural parks in Kenya. The park is home to about 450 species of birds, and among the thickets of acacia giraffes, buffalo and flocks of monkeys can be found. Hippos are also permanent inhabitants of the lake. After lunch take a boat safari on the lake, where you can get close to snorting and grunting hippos, take pictures and watch these amazing giants.
Good morning! We have breakfast and travel to the Amboselinational park, where you check-in and have lunch in the lodge.
Amboseli is a unique park, combining the desert plains, which are no stranger to an occasionaltornado, and almost never drying swamp, where many birds live. The largest terrestrial mammal in Africa, and in the whole world - the elephant also prefers the expanse of Amboseli. The elephant in kilimanjaro is a visiting photo card of Kenya. Yes, you are not mistaken - Mount Kilimanjaro is in Tanzania, but despite this, it is best seen from Kenya.
Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the continent, and while thousands of people a year try to conquer its peak, the most painless and guaranteed way to see the "roof of Africa" is simply to come to Kenya's Amboseli National Park and face south.
An evening safari in Amboseli National Park will bring unforgettable experiences and gorgeous photos. You will be able to "conduct" elephants going to sleep in the direction of Kilimanjaro. Return to the lodge. Dinner.
Good morning! Start the day with breakfast in a lodge with a magnificent view of Kilimanjaro. A beautiful morning, a delightful view. Hemingway and his "Snows of Kilimanjaro" immediately come to mind. Perhaps it was this view that had inspired old Ham to create his masterpiece. Next you will have a morning safari in Amboseli. Enjoy, watch, admire. Peaceful herds of elephants numbering up to 500-700 individuals are not uncommon.
Move to Saltlick Reserve (5 hours), where you have a lunch at TaitaSarova Hills Game Lodge.The total area of Tsavo is more than 20,000 square kilometers.In Saltlikyou have a unique opportunity to stay in a lodge with houses that stand on stilts. SarovSaltlik Safari Hotel is an exciting holiday destination for true wildlife lovers and combines conscious ecotourism with an amazing proximity to the wild. You will be able to enjoy a photo safari right out of your window: the animals walk freely under the bridges that connect the houses with each other.

How to equip for a safari
When choosing clothes,you should give preference to inexpressive and non-branded shades of color, like khaki. Day clothes for safari should be light and breathable. In the evening you should resort to long linen pants and a long-sleeved shirt, which will serve as extra protection from mosquitoes.
On safari we will have to leave in the early morning, and at this time of day it can be rather cool, so be sure to bring a warm jacket or a windbreaker. In Africa, during the safari there are almost no walks, so choose shoes in which it is convenient to sit in the car - sneakers or sandals. However, the shoes should have a strong enough sole, so that if you have to walk, you do not pierce your feet with the thorns of acacias.Bring with you on safari:
- long-sleeved shirt and a pair of golf shirts/t-shirts;
- A warm sweater or a light jacket;
- light cotton pants and shorts;
- light sneakers, sandals, slates;
- baseball cap, hat, panama.
Protection from diseases
Most tourists are frightened by two exotic diseases: yellow fever and malaria. Below we will tell you what vaccinations should be done and which are only RECOMMENDED.
1. Yellow fever. To enter most African countries: South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Kenya, yellow fever vaccination certificate is NOT needed. For a visit to Tanzania, yellow fever immunization is a recommended measure, not a mandatory one. However, vaccination is required if you are entering from an epidemiologically dangerous country, which also includes neighboring Kenya.
2. Malaria. The risk of catching malaria does exist in an area with a humid warm climate and a lot of insects, but the chance of encountering a malarial mosquito is almost zero. The vectors of the disease are "tied" to standing water and do not move away from it further than 8 km. Therefore, the risk of being bitten by a malarial mosquito is high only in their places of permanent habitation: lowlands, swamps, near drying bodies of water, etc. But the minimum risk still remains a risk. Therefore, if you want to protect yourself you need to use quality repellents and use special drugs.
Remember, malaria vaccinations don't exist!
