DAY 2: Transfer to Masai Mara National Park.

You will only have two stopovers at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint and Narok town to arrive in time for lunch at Mara Sopa lodge. After lunch, you will go on an afternoon game drive in the reserve until late evening when you return for dinner and overnight at your respective lodge Mara sopa. It is difficult to believe that the Masai Mara has such diverse and abundant wildlife.

This is the time of year that the great migration occurs. Mara has previously reported over 450 animal species. Including well-known species such as tigers, crocodiles, rhinos, and hippos. The Mara hosts what is perhaps the most exciting natural occurrence on the planet. The annual migration of millions of wildebeests and zebras from Tanzania’s Serengeti in search of water and pasture.

The predators of the savanna lion, cheetah, wild dog jackal, hyena, and vultures follow close behind. Later, return to your respective lodge for dinner and an overnight stay at Mara Sopa Lodge.

DAY 3: Explore Masai Mara.

The following two days will be spent game-watching in Kenya’s premier Masai Mara National Reserve.

You will go on two game drives in the Mara, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, in search of the big five and other wildlife species such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, Wildebeest, buffaloes, zebras, jackals, spotted hyenas, topi, impala, Hartebeests, nat eared foxes, crocodiles and hippos among other animals.

Given your expected visit dates (July to September), you should prepare to witness the exciting Great Wildebeest Migration as it occurs in the Mara. This natural migration of over 4 million grazers from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to Masai Mara National Reserve is the sole reason why many tourists choose to visit Masai Mara National Reserve at this time of year.

The adventure is unparalleled and is regarded as one of the world’s natural wonders.

DAY 4: Wildebeest Migration continues for the full day.

You will have the entire day to follow the Great Migration in Masai Mara National Reserve, but how early the herds arrive will determine how much time you have. The first of the major Mara River crossings often takes place in August, which is the traditional month that it does so.

Another significant month for the herds’ annual migration, during which many of them will remain near the Mara River while continuing their journey northward in search of greener pastures.

In the event that the herds have survived the journey, the month of August is a good time to view the migration. The first crossings of the season are always among the most perilous of the year because of the wildebeest’s unpredictable behaviour and the crocodiles’ ravenous appetites. As a direct consequence of this, the initial crossings leave a wake of dead bodies in their wake.

Following an eventful day spent tracking migration in the Masai Mara National Reserve, we make our way back to the lodging where we are staying for dinner and to spend the night.
