6 Day Masai Mara Wildlife Safari Itinerary

Day 1

When you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, a local guide will meet you and transfer you to your hotel in Nairobi for one overnight stay.

Eka Hotel offers modern facilities ideally located for convenient access to some of Nairobi's most popular tourist attractions, such as the Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi National Park, and the Karen Blixen Museum.

If you've had a long international flight and prefer to relax at the hotel, there is a restaurant, a coffee shop, a bar, a gym, a swimming pool, a wellness centre, and gardens.

Day 2

Your local safari guide will collect you from Eka Hotel after an early breakfast and drive you to Entim Camp in the Masai Mara National Reserve. On route, your guide will explain the details of your day-to-day game viewing itinerary.

After checking in at Entim Camp, you will enjoy lunch before exploring the Masai Mara National Reserve on your first game drive that afternoon. You will return to camp for a sunset dinner.

You will stay in one of 12 luxury, en-suite safari tents on raised wooden decks overlooking the Mara River. Each tent has a snug lounge area that walks out onto a private veranda under the shade of the dense surrounding riverine woodland.

Days 3 to 5

The game-rich Masai Mara National Reserve is one of East Africa's bucket-list safari destinations. Well-known for the spectacular, annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebra, and other antelope, the reserve spans over 1,500 square kilometres of untamed, shrub-dotted African savanna and makes for a first-class game viewing destination all year round. For the following three days, you will explore the reserve's iconic landscape and incredible wildlife on fully guided game drives.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is home to large resident populations of elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, crocodile, hippo, and over 450 bird species, and has one of the highest cheetah densities in the world. And because of Entim Camp's first-rate location in the heart of the Masai Mara, you will often be first on the scene at wildlife sightings.
