This morning you will be picked up by an Africa Unadorned representative who will transfer you to Wilson airport for your 45 minute flight to world famous Maasai Mara National Reserve departing at 0915 hours. On arrival in the Maasai Mara you will be met by the lodge’s vehicles and transferred to Mara Serena Lodge or similar accommodation at game drive speed viewing game en route.
The Maasai Mara lies on the southwest corner of the country consisting of vast rolling plains that are stripped black once a year by millions of wildebeest and zebra migrating north from the Serengeti. This reserve is one of Africa’s premier wildlife destinations teeming with all the big game species.
After lunch depart for afternoon game drive only returning to your lodge to freshen up for dinner.
Early morning wake-up call with tea/coffee & biscuits. Depart for your morning interpretive game drive just after 6.00 am as the park opens at 06.30 hrs. Elephants browse amongst the large herds of wildebeest and topi, eland and buffalo, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle. In the Mara River, hippos submerge to snort and grumble while crocodiles sunbathe, mouths agape, on the riverbanks. From around July to October, there’s the greatest show on earth – the wildebeest migration.
Return to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon, you may wish to return to the park again to enjoy the wild or relax by the pool in the lodge.
There are a number of activities that can be booked in the Mara like the hot air balloon ride (at an extra cost). Float gently over the plains and get a bird’s eye view of game below. After the ride, enjoy a hearty breakfast in the bush before embarking for a game drive.
Alternatively, you could go out into the amazing park for a final game drive, before returning to the lodge for breakfast. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon enjoying the beautiful but Serena atmosphere of the reserve. You may opt to go for a nature walk or a visit to the Masai village before returning to your lodge for lunch.
You will be transferred to the airstrip for your afternoon flight to Wilson airport, where you will be met and transferred to Jomo Kenyatta international airport or any city hotel.
