Is this trip right for you?

  • This itinerary starts and finishes in Nairobi and includes two long drives.

  • This is one of our Short Breaks and is slightly different to our group tours. There is no group leader but rather a local guide with the idea being that you maintain a level of independence during down time. You'll most likely travel on a join-in basis, which means you may or may not be joined by others for activities and transportation, depending on demand.


Jambo! Welcome to Kenya. You are required to be at the reception of the Kenya Comfort Hotel Suites by 7:30am for a brief pre-departure meeting. Your Driver Guide will leave a note at reception telling you where this important meeting will take place. Please ask a member of reception for this information.Travel west, crossing the floor of the Great Rift Valley and traversing the escarpment before reaching the town of Narok in the land of the Masai. As we near this area we are likely to see many colourfully dressed Masai tribes people tending to their herds of cattle. You'll have the opportunity to grab some lunch in Narok. Then head to your lodge, which is located across the river from the Masai Mara Park (250 km, approx 6 hours).

Take a guided 2 hour walk around the area visiting a Maasai homestead along the way. Wild animals are sometimes sighted on this walk. Our accommodation is a simple tented camp located just 15minutes away from the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Sentrim Mara Camp offers tented accommodation, with beds and linen, simple furnishings, and en-suite bathrooms. There is also a pool, bar, fireplace and restaurant.

Special Information
While brazen crime is thankfully fairly uncommon in Nairobi, petty theft unfortunately is not and recently arrived visitors to the capital can often make for tempting targets.
After an early breakfast, and armed with packed lunch, we drive to the Mara ( approx. 15mins ). A huge area of woodlands and open plains backed by the striking Esoit Oloololo Escarpment, the Masai Mara is home to all of the Big Five. Keep an eye out for prides of lions, herds of elephants and, if you are lucky, a stealthy cheetah or leopard. During the migration (Mid July to the end of September ) this area can be flooded by over a million wildebeest on their annual migration. Explore this diverse environment and view a multitude of wildlife. Spend an entire day on a wildlife spotting quest in the reserve.
