If Africa had a Big Five for safari parks, the Masai Mara safari would easily make the final cut. It’s a classic safari destination and one of the best places to see lions, leopards, and cheetahs, as well as being home to iconic Savannah country that long ago came to define the East African safari. It also has the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino), a good mix of public areas and private conservancies, and extraordinarily rich accommodation offerings.
Pick up from the airport or your hotel around 8:30 am and depart from Nairobi to Maasai Mara Game. Reserve with a stopover at the great rift valley viewpoint. With a picnic lunch on the way, you arrive at Masai Mara in the afternoon. Proceed for evening game drive dinner and overnight at Lenchada camp or similar with facilities of hot shower and toilet inside the tent.
