Description of Short Masai Mara safari

This four day safari tour of the Masai Mara is ideal for travellers who are short on time but still want to experience the very best of East Africa's most magnificent wildlife reserves.

Tight schedules due to work or other constraints are simply a fact of life but we don't think this should stop you making the most of the Masai Mara on safari.

From Lake Nakuru National Park to the plains of the Masai Mara, this is your chance to encounter animals in Kenya from the best possible angle. Visits to local Masai villages also provide an array of authentic and insightful East African experiences, many of which are bound to be absolutely unforgettable.

Thanks to Kenya's East African location you'll also find every opportunity to continue your travels in the region with beach breaks in Lamu, Mombasa or Zanzibar just as worthwhile as extended time spent in the Serengeti or the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania.

Tailor a tour to coincide with the great migration during July to October and you'll find millions of wildebeest and zebras making their way over the Mara River as they run the gauntlet with crocodiles and other fearsome predators. Also, as the Masai Mara is the only location in Kenya where you can take a hot air balloon safari, this could be one airborne activity that's absolutely too good to miss.

Contact us to find out how we can tailor a tour to your exact specifications. Locations like the Great Rift Valley and Hell's Gate National Park are absolutely incredible, and having the privilege to observe thousands of flamingos taking flight or a troop of baboons in their natural habitat, are just a couple of reasons why you'll want to treasure and keep this trip long after the tan finally fades.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism: Short Masai Mara safari

Environment

The reason we are enjoying these natural amenities is because those before us dedicated themselves into protecting the environment and it is one of the important things that we bear in mind when planing any itinerary. During the entire safari we have some practices in place to help us protect the environment:
- No dumping of any garbage outside the vehicle. Put everything in the seat pockets. We shall dispose correctly at the lodges
- Do not ask your driver guide to drive off road while in parks. Stick to designated tracks.
- Wild animals have the right of the way, we are the intruders in their territory and no any time will you block their way

We have projects where in conjunction with local community leaders, we identify local guides whom we help train on matters on conservation and tourism who either becomes professional local tour guides in the villages. To support the communities, we help in building schools, hospitals and educate them in basic health matter like need to use toilets by building them in the village which discourage them from their traditions where they help themselves in the forests.

Community

We all read and see human conflicts which have led to some wild animals becoming extinct which the main contribution is human encroachments in their territories. To encourage local communities to co-exist with wild animals and encourage them to appreciate their conservation we designed our tour to help enable this.

During your stay at masai mara, you will do cultural tour on day 2 visiting the local village. During the visit, we pay a fee which help uplift their way of life
A local guide in the village will guide you around the village and explain to you on their way of life. Local women have some artifacts which they sell and we encourage you to buy from them which in return help them buy food since they do not farm.
