The Maasai Mara is made of vast open rolling plains, and grasslands with seasonal river lets. The entire area of the park is situated within the enormous Great Rift Valley.

The reserve is famous for the annual wildlife migration with over 1 million wildebeest and thousands of zebra crossing from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. The reserve is home to hundreds of elephants, hippos, lions, hyenas, Cape buffalo and thousands of other hoof stock. Over 500 species of birds including ostrich, larks, sunbirds, weavers as well as the lilac-breasted roller are abundant in the reserve. The Maasai Mara's altitude is 5.000 ft. above sea level, which yields a milder and damper climate different from other parts of the country. Morning and afternoon game drives will be provided each day. You will be staying at a Deluxe Tented Camp (B,L,D Daily).

DAY 06 – DEPART MAASAI MARA VIA NAIROBI TO MAASAI SIMBA CAMP (MAASAI VILLAGE/ AMBOSELI ECO-SYSTEM)

Shortly after breakfast we’ll drive from Maasai Mara and arrive to Nairobi by noon in time for lunch. We’ll leave Nairobi after lunch and arrive to Merrueshi by 4 pm. We’ll make stops along the way when we see something interesting. Upon our arrival, we’ll meet our Maasai hosts and settle into Maasai Simba Camp. The camp has permanent cabins/cottages made of volcanic rocks; they are spacious and enjoy total privacy. Moderate Private Camp (B,L,D Daily)

DAY 07-10– MAASAI SIMBA CAMP

Time in the village will be flexible and relaxing, yet full of learning. Mornings will typically begin with a bush walking safari lead by the Maasai warriors. Merrueshi is a wildlife corridor between Amboseli and Chyulu Hills National Parks. Giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, eland, kudu, warthog, gazelle, impala, and over 400 species of birds roam freely in the area. The Maasai know this land in a way no one else does and the warriors interpret everything from footprints, animal droppings, animal noises, herbal medicine, and more. The walking safari offers you a unique experience with wildlife much different from the game reserves and national parks. Breakfast is ready when you return from the bush-walking safari.

Shortly after breakfast we’ll emerge ourselves into several activities that include a visit to local villages, schools, and the health center. Your visits with the village leaders, elders, women, herbalists, teachers, and nurses will allow you to learn about every aspect of the Maasai way of life.

Additional fun activities include bead-making lessons facilitated by Maasai Women’s Cooperative, storytelling sessions by Maasai elders, and a Maasai warrior dance at the night before departure. As always we’ll save time for sharing within the group during dinner. (B,L,D Daily).

DAY 11 FULL DAY EXCURSION TO AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK

In addition to over 1,000 elephants there are zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, impala, lion, hippo, antelope, warthog, hyena, cheetah, buffalo, and more than 400 species of birds all gathering in the haven of the park.
