FLY-DRIVE SAFARI TO MASAI MARA

3-days road and air safari to Masai Mara

Combine an Air and Road travel safari for a connoisseur safari with our Authentic Weekend getaway package. Delight in an exceptional wildlife adventure which explores the most dramatic highlights of Kenya’s beautiful landscape both on air and on land. Our 3 day Authentic Weekend Safari package allows you to enjoy a relaxing safari in one of the greatest wildlife reserves in Kenya. Whether you wish to fly first then drive back or vice versa, we will tailor make your safari to your preference.

Day 1

Check in at Wilson Airport for a 45-minute flight over the Rift Valley to Olkiombo Airstrip. You will be met by our Masai guide who will transfer you to our camp. Hop on one of our tailor-made 4×4 Safari Land Cruisers for a safari game drive en-route to Basecamp Masai Mara. Masai Mara Game Reserve is one of the most well-known parks in Africa. Almost all the iconic wildlife animals can be viewed here. This is also where the famous wildebeest and zebra migration from Serengeti to Masai Mara takes place between July and October. Along the way, you will have your first encounter with the wildlife Masai Mara has to offer. Look out for the ‘big five’ which include a lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhino. You will arrive at Basecamp for lunch. Set on the bank of the Talek River Basecamp Masai Mara location is spectacular, with the great Mara plains surrounding the camp and the river in front of each tent. After lunch, you will settle into your tents. Later in the afternoon, you will join our Masai guide for a camp walk along the Talek river path. Your guide will show you some of the operational elements that have made Basecamp one of the leading pioneers in the Responsible Tourism Industry. At around 4pm, stroll across our private suspension bridge to meet your Maasai Guide for your afternoon safari game drive. While you venture out you have a chance to see many animals and beautiful landscape of the Masai Mara. As the sun sets, you will enjoy a classic Basecamp Sundowner under an acacia tree before returning to the lodge for dinner. As you rest around the fireplace, listen to your Maasai Guide tell stories about their culture as you reflect on the experiences of the day.

Day 2

Wake up early for a cup of coffee followed by a morning safari game drive. Enjoy the fresh breeze at the break of dawn and marvel as the bush comes to life in the early morning hours. Throughout the year, Masai Mara is a place of natural drama, colour and life. Enjoy watching Masai Mara wildlife as well as a variety of birds in their natural habitat. See the wildebeest in their thousands, the beautiful zebras, and the graceful giraffes. You will have a brief stopover for a picnic breakfast overlooking the Mara Plains before proceeding on with your game drive. Head back to camp. Visit the Basecamp Masai Brand workshop to see how the Masai women make different beaded items. You have a chance to buy souvenirs as a support initiative for the women. After, head off to our tree plantation area which has become home to over 285 species of birds. Culminate your camp walk with an optional tree planting session. After lunch, take a stroll to Talek Center together with your Masai guide to see some of the community projects that we proudly partner with the Masai community to help in community development. Meet the local Maasai people and discover more about their way of life. Return to camp late in the afternoon to join your Masai guide for an evening game drive.  In the evening the Mara provides an opportunity to see lions, leopards, and other wild cats, sated for their night hunts. Return to camp in time for dinner. Unwind and be mesmerized by the dazzling stars.
