Day 1
You will be collected from your Nairobi hotel and transferred to your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Masai people and the Mara River that divides the park.
 
Masai Mara National Park is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest from the adjoining Serengeti National Park. This phenomenon occurs every year from July to October, when game migrates along a circular route from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again in search of fresh pastures, followed by hungry predators - most notably lions and hyena.
 
Your guide will meet you at Mara Shikar airstrip and drive to your first camp, set up on the banks of the Mara River adjacent to a teeming hippo pool. Lunch will be served and you will have a little time to relax before meeting your horses and setting off on an evening ride. We will ride and game drive from this camp today and you should see herds of zebra, topi, giraffe, wildebeest and gazelle, as well as some of the big five.
