Day 1
You will be met at Nairobi Airport and transferred to Wilson Airport for your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Masai people and the Mara River, which divides the park.
 
Masai Mara National Park is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest from the adjoining Serengeti National Park. This phenomenon occurs every year from July to October, when game migrates along a circular route from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again in search of fresh pastures, followed by hungry predators - most notably lions and hyena. Check into your lodge and enjoy a late afternoon game drive into this magnificent wildlife sanctuary.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods. A baggage allowance of 15 kg (which includes your hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons. Excess baggage can be stored with our representative in Nairobi.
Days 2 To 3
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara region.
 
Nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley, the Masai Mara is famous for its many prides of lions, packs of hyena and other predators - as well as huge herds of wildebeest, which number over one million, zebra and giraffe. All the Big Five can be seen here, as well as numerous other species including the Thomson's gazelle, topi, kongoni, impala, roan antelope and hippo. The nocturnal bat-eared fox, rarely found elsewhere in Kenya, also inhabits this region as well as the endangered cheetah and black rhino. Bird watching is also excellent with over 450 different species including the vulture, marabou stork, secretary bird, hornbill, crowned crane, ostrich, long-crested eagle and african pygmy-falcon.
 
Set off early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view the abundant wildlife. Return to your lodge to rest in the heat of the day, before setting off again in the late afternoon for another game drive.
 
Note: As your lodge is situated in a private conservancy, you will need to pay an extra $130 pp if you want a game drive that enters the Masai Mara National Reserve. As wildlife ranges freely between the surrounding conservancies & the national park, without any fences to restrict their movement, this is only necessary during the migration season and should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
Day 4
After some early morning game viewing in the Masai Mara, transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Wilson Airport in Nairobi and onward connecting flight to Malindi.
 
You will be met at Malindi Airport and transferred to your hotel situated on Watamu Beach on the shores of the sparkling Indian Ocean. Check in and relax in your warm tropical surroundings.
Days 5 To 7
At leisure to relax and enjoy the white sands of Watamu on the warm east coast of Kenya, fringed with swaying coconut palm trees and the vibrant blooms of hibiscus, bougainvillea and frangipani.
 
The beaches are extensive and provide panoramic views of the ocean. Activities vary by resort but usually include water sports, scuba diving and deep sea fishing. There is also the option of visiting the ancient Gede Ruins and the historic Old Town in Malindi.
 
The blue ocean waters of Watamu Marine Park host a wide variety of coral gardens, inhabited by multi-coloured fish such as angelfish, butterflyfish, triggerfish and surgeonfish - most easily seen snorkelling, scuba diving or by glass-bottomed boat. Humpback whales that migrate from the Antarctic to breed in these warm waters can also be seen between July and September.
Day 8
Transfer to Malindi Airport for your light aircraft flight to Wilson Airport.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to Nairobi International Airport for your flight home.
