Discover the Kenya safari of your dreams in your very own private 4x4 safari vehicle with an experience driver-guide, and see for yourself the vast, gently rolling landscape of acacia-specked grasslands darkened by migrating wildebeest herds.
With your driver-guide, you will drive in your private 4x4 safari vehicle from Nairobi down to the Masai Mara (approximately 5 hours), where you will have 3 action filled days of thrilling game drives with nobody else to please apart from yourselves as you find yourself immersed in the very heart of the migrating herds.
Watch in anticipation as they stand nervously looking to cross the swirling Mara River, and then gasp as one brave wildebeest makes the first move, immediately followed by every other animal. The river becomes alive with swimming wildebeest, and thrashing crocodiles. It is a spectacle that many people have seen on TV documentaries, and to witness it live is an outstanding safari experience.
You will stay in a lodge set high on a bush-cloaked hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the crocodile-filled Mara River. Mara Serena Lodge truly stands centre-stage to one of Africa's most dramatic wildlife arenas, offering guests here a ringside seat for the ‘greatest wildlife show on earth' - the legendary migration of the wildebeest.
After you have had your passports stamped by the Immigrations Officer, proceed to the Baggage Hall to collect your luggage and then go through Customs and exit the building onto the street outside, where our representative will be just outside waiting to meet you, holding a signboard displaying your name. He will introduce you to your driver-guide and you will then be driven to the Masai Mara National Reserve in your private safari minivan, which has sliding windows and a roof hatch for excellent game viewing and photography opportunities. Your safari guide is accredited by the Kenya Professional Safari Guide Association. The drive is about 5 hours, but you pass through rural areas including little villages, so it is an interesting journey! You will arrive in time for lunch at the lodge.
Located at the very centre of the famous 'Mara Triangle' of the world-renowned Big 5 Masai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge is set high on a bush-cloaked hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River.
Depart after lunch for a game drive in the reserve and into the masses of wildebeest stretching out across the plains. As well as the wildebeest, the Mara also offers an abundance of plains game including zebra, giraffe and antelope, making this the ideal hunting ground for Kenya's famous big cats. There is also a good chance of spotting a leopard in the wild, and other predators include cheetah and spotted hyena.
Set off with your driver-guide after an early breakfast to see more of the annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest. Enjoy a packed lunch in the wilderness, before returning to the lodge late afternoon.
Today, you can either make your way to the Mara River in the hope that you may see a river crossing or you can spend the morning exploring other areas of the Reserve. Return to the lodge for lunch and maybe a siesta or a dip in the pool, before heading out again for an afternoon game drive.
After breakfast at the lodge, you will be driven back to Nairobi. Upon arrival back in Nairobi, there is the option to extend this trip with a beach stay - rates available on request.
