ITINERARY & FEATURES

The Masai Mara

Preamble

Maasai Mara National Reserve stretches 1,510 sq km (580 sq miles) and raises 1,500-2,170 meters above sea level. The terrain of the reserve is primarily grassland and riverine forest with clumps of the distinctive acacia trees. It’s about 270 km from the capital city Nairobi and takes about 5-6 hours by road or 40-45 minutes by flight

The Mara is also made up of group ranches, the Mara Triangle, Musiara, and Sekenani.

The Maasai Mara Ecosystem holds one of the highest lion density in world and this is where over TWO MILLION Wildebeest, zebra and Thompson’s gazelle migrate annually. Its hosts over 95 species of mammals and 570 recorded species of birds.

Best Time to Visit With the wildebeest migration in July to October, this is the best time to see these incredible movement of animals. Although it is not guaranteed that the wildebeest get to Maasai Mara, it has yet to let us down. Also, December to February is great time as it is dryer, however the wildebeest and a lot of the zebra will have moved on to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania by then.

Recommended Number of Days Due the amount to be seen in the reserve we feel a two to four day safari is suitable. If you are interested in photography the longer you stay the more chance of getting the ultimate photo.

Getting To Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara is approximately 280 kms west from Nairobi City.

There are two ways to get to the Maasai Mara.

Drive

Driving will take you about 5-6 hours. Nairobi to Narok will take you about 2-2.5 hours; the road is absolutely beautiful and smooth.

In Narok there is a fuel station just across the river which is a great stop for food, toilet and snacks. Leaving Narok to Sekenani Gate will take you about 2-3.5 hours depending on the vehicle you are travelling with.
The road has really broken up and is NOT good at all while on the tar road. It has a lot of pot holes and special attention is needed.
At the end of the tar road the road you drive on a dirt road. This has been graded and is in good condition (July 2011). This road goes until the Sekenani Gate. Once in the reserve the roads are ok, but not the best.

A 4×4 vehicle is recommended.

Fly

There are a few companies that fly to the Maasai Mara. It takes about 40 – 45 minutes from Nairobi. We recommend Air Kenya or Safari Link. A flight from the Coast is about 2 hours departing from Mombasa, Diani Beach or Malindi. We recommend Mombasa Air Safari. You may find yourself having a few stops on the way due to other passengers landing at one of the 6 airstrips in the Mara. This is by far the best way to travel, but you do miss out on seeing more of the country.

You can also get a chartered flight into the Mara Ecosystem.

Park Entry gates:

Oloololo Gate:         On the northern-most border.

Musiara gate:          On the upper north-eastern border.

Talek Gate:             Towards the middle of the north-eastern border.

Sekenani gate:        The most popular gate generally used by road package clients into the park.

Ololaimutiek:           On the eastern-most border.

Sand River:                  Towards the southern end of the south-western border.
