Share this Tour

A 3-day fly-in fly-out safari to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is an exciting and convenient way to experience the stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife of one of Africa's most renowned safari destinations. The Masai Mara is famous for its diverse wildlife, including the "Big Five" (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros), as well as the annual wildebeest migration, where millions of wildebeests, zebras, and other animals cross the Mara River in search of greener pastures.

Here's what you can expect during a typical 3-day fly-in fly-out safari to the Masai Mara:

Day 1: Arrival and Afternoon Game Drive

  • You'll likely arrive in Nairobi, Kenya's capital, from where you'll catch a short domestic flight to one of the airstrips near the Masai Mara Reserve.
  • After landing in the Mara, you'll be met by your safari guide who will transfer you to your luxury lodge or camp.
  • After settling in and having lunch, you'll head out for an afternoon game drive in custom-made safari vehicles, accompanied by experienced guides. The Masai Mara's vast savannahs provide ample opportunities to spot a variety of wildlife, including lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and more.
  • Return to your accommodation for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Full Day Game Drive

  • An early start with a hearty breakfast before embarking on a full-day game drive. This allows you to explore different parts of the reserve, increasing your chances of encountering a wide range of wildlife.
  • During the migration season (typically from July to October), you may have the opportunity to witness the dramatic river crossings, a breathtaking spectacle where wildebeests brave crocodile-infested waters.
  • You'll have packed lunches during the game drive to make the most of your time in the wilderness.
  • After an exhilarating day of wildlife sightings and photography, you'll return to your accommodation for relaxation, dinner, and another night's stay.

Day 3: Morning Game Drive and Departure

  • On your final day, wake up early for a morning game drive. Early mornings are an excellent time to witness predators hunting or catch animals during their most active hours.
  • After the game drive, return to the lodge for a leisurely breakfast and some time to relax.
  • Later in the morning, you'll be transferred to the nearby airstrip for your flight back to Nairobi, where you can catch your international departure or continue with your onward travel plans.
