Day by day

Day 1

Nairobi - Masai Mara Reserve

On arrival into Jomo Kenyatta Airport you will be met by one of our representatives and transferred to Wilson for your flight to the Mara where you will be transferred to Rekero. This seasonal Camp, set up between the months of June and March, provides some first class game viewing during that time period. Owned and run by Gerard Beaton and Jackson of Big Cat Diary fame, the Camp is renowned for its rustic charm, first class service and unbeatable guiding. Professional Masai guides accompany you on your safari around this fantastic area of the Mara, which is great for both viewing of the annual wildebeest migration, as well as spotting the big cats.

Overnight: Rekero Camp (D)

Days 2-3

Masai Mara Reserve

You will have two full days to enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the National Park as well as relaxing evenings back at camp watching the animals along the river in front of the camp. The Serengeti-Mara ecosystem supports the most diverse migration of grazing mammals in the world and the Masai Mara is crucial in sustaining this mass migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles and is a highlight of your wildlife holiday in Kenya. Their arrival spells a bonanza for the Mara’s big cats and it is no wonder that BBC film crews have based themselves here for several years filming their Big Cat Diaries.

Overnight: Rekero Camp (B, L, D)

Day 4

Masai Mara Reserve - Mara North

Today you will be met at Rekero Camp and transferred to Kicheche Mara Camp in the Mara North Conservancy. These classic safari-style tents are set within a prime wildlife viewing area within the Masai Mara Reserve. This is a fantastic location and great for children.

Overnight: Kicheche Mara Camp (B, L, D)

Days 5-6

Mara North Conservancy

You will have two days to explore the Mara North Conservancy on private game drives with your own private guide. Because you are staying in one of the Conservancies, night drives and walking safaris are available (age restrictions apply). Night drives are a great way to explore the bush as this is when the predators come to life and head out to hunt. The bush is completely different at night and to see and hear the change is fascinating.

Overnight: Kicheche Mara Camp (B, L, D)

You will all have four days to relax at this beautiful location. Take the time to relax on the beach, laze by one of the two pools or treat yourself to a relaxing session in the yoga house. Alternatively, if you’re feeling a little more energetic, you may feel like sailing, kayaking, water-skiing, wakeboarding or canoeing (all available at a small fee). If you feel like wildlife spotting, guests are free to take advantage of the stables and go horse riding down the beach or in the sacred 'Kaya' forests. Alternatively, if you enjoy diving one of the swimming pools is deep enough for PADI scuba diving lessons.
