DETAILED ITINERARY

This adventure starts and ends in Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Kenya

DAY 1
Upon your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Kenya you will be met by a member of the &Beyond team who will drive you to Wilson Airport for your scheduled flight to the Masai Mara.

As Kenya’s most renowned wilderness destination, the Masai Mara National Reserve offers exceptional game viewing, including the opportunity to witness the Great Migration — one of nature’s greatest wildlife spectacles. The park takes its name from the Mara River, which flows through the reserve, as well as from the Maasai people. Masai Mara National Reserve provides an unsurpassed wildlife experience. Covering an area of 1 510 km2, the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife, and endless plains. The Reserve is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise with abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion and cheetah alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra.
Spend the next three nights at the lodge/camp of your choice.

DAY 2 & 3
Welcome to the plains of the famed Mara, dotted with iconic umbrella thorn trees and watched over by tall Maasai in their distinctive red dress. Perch comfortably on the high seat of the 4x4 as the guide interprets each sighting of the abundant resident game. Gape in astonishment at the endless, seething mass of the great migration and feel your pulse race during the madcap rush of a river crossing. Spend endless happy hours trying to fit it all into a photograph.

Follow an expert walking guide and listen as your footsteps rustle softly through the grass. Mumble a polite “Jambo” and shake hands with a beaming Maasai Moran before he shows you around his village. Examine the exquisite craftsmanship of a beaded necklace just perfect to take home. Savour the thrill of a unique night-drive sighting, framed in the glowing beam of the spotlight. Rise before the sun then rise to meet it on the silent, effortless ascent of a hot-air balloon. Watch as the dawn turns the plains to gold and the expert pilot drifts the balloon smoothly over inquisitive game and winding watercourses. Lift your face to the last rays of the setting sun, feel the warmth of the cooling engine at your back and sip a refreshing sundowner as the sun sets on another full day in Africa.

DAY 4
Depart the Masai Mara for your scheduled flight back to Wilson Airport. Upon your arrival at Wilson Airport you will be met by a member from the &Beyond team who will drive you to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your outbound flight.
