Day 3 : LAKE NAKURU – MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE (230 Kms, 4.5 hrs)  :  After breakfast, drive to Masai Mara Game Reserve. Arrive in time for lunch at Keekorok Lodge. This afternoon, enjoy game drive in “The World Famous Masai Mara Game Reserve’’. The Masai Mara Game Reserve is often called simply “The Mara” – a Masai word meaning “mottled” – a reference to its patchy landscape.
The Reserve covers 1,510 sq km (580 sq miles) and raises 1,500-2,170 meters above sea level. The terrain of the reserve is primarily grassland and riverine forest with clumps of distinctive acacia trees. The Masai Mara ecosystem holds one of the highest lion densities in the world and this is where over two million wildebeest, zebra and Thompson gazelle migrate annually.

 

It hosts over 95 species of mammals and 570 recorded species of birds. The wildlife of the Masai Mara is world-renowned, with the so-called “Big Five”- buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhinoceros – evident throughout the year. The “Big Nine” – including cheetah, zebra, giraffe and hippo – extends this experience. The Masai Mara also plays host to the ‘Annual Migration’ but whatever the time of year the resident wildlife will surely enthral and entertain all who visit this wondrous Park.

 

Dinner and overnight at Keekorok Lodge or Similar (Meals : BF, Lunch, Dinner)

 

Day 4 : MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE :  Morning and afternoon game drives in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. You may hear of the Big Five before going on Safari, from an old book, or from a nature documentary but your real safari happens here.

 

Today, there are five of the animals which people most want to see while on Safari. One hundred years ago, amid pith helmets, mosquito boots, and ‘darkest Africa’, the Big Five were the most sought after animals to hunt. They were the fiercest, the most dangerous animals; the animals that would hunt the hunter. Explore this park and you will go home with stories of lions and cheetahs in the tall African grass, of rhinos that would charge at the mere smell of a person, of the Cape Buffalo hidden in the bushes, and of the terrors of an enraged elephant, if you are lucky enough

THINGS TO CARRY

 

Luggage: 


Please pack in a couple of small soft duffel bags (NOT in hard suitcases), to facilitate loading in the small luggage compartments of the light aircraft that fly you from place to place. Your hand luggage should include your camera equipment, toiletries, medicines and a change of under clothes. 


On internal flights, the total luggage limit, including hand luggage, is 33 pounds/15kgs per person.

 

Clothing: What to pack?


Kenya is casual. Please bring neutral colours. Remember, as there is lots of dust, khaki is always good. The best method of dress is layering. Early morning and evening game runs call for a sweater/fleece or windbreaker over a cotton long-sleeved shirt. A T-shirt or short-sleeved cotton shirt is good for mid-day. Hats are a must. Cotton or poly trousers, shorts, sneakers or comfortable hiking shoes are recommended. 


Evenings are cool around the campfire but casual. A fleece with a light-weight turtle neck and jeans are perfect. Safari style jackets/vests are convenient for photographers with their many pockets for film, lenses etc.


For the Day:


• 2 to 3 pairs of shorts , 5 to 6 cotton shirts, bathing suits.

 
• Enough underwear , socks and hankies.


• Sunscreen, 2 pairs comfortable walking shoes, hats or caps.

 

For the Evening – warm clothes for the cool:


• 1 safari jacket, or 1 light weight jacket, or a fleece jacket or a windbreaker , 2 long sleeve shirts.


• 2 pairs casual trousers.


Also remember to bring:


• Insect repellent (for the body) any special medications or prescriptions (bear in mind that you may not find your prescriptions in Tanzania so bring enough)


• Extra pair of prescription glasses and sunglasses, contact lenses – as it is dusty bring ample cleaning solutions.


• Small, lightweight flashlight, lotions, kleenex, moisturisers, chapstic.


• Personal cosmetics, toiletries, scarves, money belt, binoculars – extremely important.

 

Dos and Don’ts while on safari

 

• Don’t photograph the people or their homes and livestock without asking permission first, and don’t be offended if you’re asked to pay for the privilege—it’s customary in some areas, particularly with the Masai who expect payment.


• Don’t encourage your driver to go off road on safari to get closer to the animals. Some will happily do this for the promise of a tip, but it is against national park rules and destroys the environment for the animals.


• Do stock up on insect repellent and general medicines in case you suffer from minor ailments while you are out on safari without access to a pharmacy or a doctor.


• Do take more camera film or memory cards than you think you’ll need. There are great photographic opportunities on safari, and most people get carried away taking photographs of animals. If you run out, it is very expensive to buy film or cards in the national park lodges.


• If you are going on a Safari, watch your clothing choices. Prefer dull colored clothes and avoid Bright colors (such as whites, pink, orange, fluorescent colors etc)


• When on safari, please do not get out of your vehicle, unless you are told it is safe to do so. Do not attempt to go for walks outside the lodge premises, when staying in game lodges/ camps.
