Watch the sun set from a scenic viewpoint with a long, tall drink in hand. Dine alfresco under the stars or choose to sleep out overnight in a ‘fly camp’, with little but the African stars above you.
After a hearty, breakfast you will be driven back to the airstrip for your scheduled flight to the Maasai Mara. As you leave the airstrip, you’ll start your game drive en-route to your camp for the next few nights. Game viewing in the Mara is superb throughout the year and you are almost guaranteed sightings of the Big 5.
The Maasai Mara is Kenya’s most famous game reserve, situated in the northern section of the Serengeti. Its world-famous Great Migration features over two million wildebeest and other antelope; described as one of nature’s greatest wildlife spectacles and certainly something every safari lover should experience at least once in their lifetime.
You’ll spend three nights at &Beyond Bateleur Camp in this famous safari park, where endless grass plains are dotted with umbrella thorn trees, watched over by towering Maasai in their distinctive crimson clothing. You’ll be able to explore the Mara from the high vantage of custom open safari vehicles or on foot with expert walking guides. Thrilling night drives by spotlight and floating soundlessly overhead by hot-air balloon to get a sense of the vastness of these plains are some other options to experience.
You’ll also be able to visit local community villages to get a sense of the cultures, daily lives and exquisite craftsmanship of these ancient, proud people.
After an early morning game drive and sumptuous breakfast, you’ll wave the majestic Maasai Mara a fond farewell as you make your way back to the airstrip. From here, you will board your scheduled flight to Wilson Airport, where you will be met by a member of staff and driven to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, for your onward flight.
