The Detailed 3 Days, 2 Nights Masai Mara Safari Itinerary 

Next, please see the detailed, 3 Days Masai Mara safari all-inclusive safari itinerary

Day 1: Pickup from JKIA, Transfer to Masai Mara, & Afternoon Game Drive

We put the P in punctuality, so bank on the safari guide being at the JKIA’s waiting bay ready to welcome you to Kenya on arrival. If you are a little jet-lagged, you can spend an hour of pleasantries, Kahawa (Kenyan coffee), and shopping before hitting the road for the Masai Mara.

You will then board our luxurious 4×4 safari Landcruiser with an open roof and start your 3 days Kenya budget camping safari. Everything about the Mara screams magnificence, and the 270km drive from Nairobi to Masai Mara is a predecessor of the experience you will get in the Mara.

The road trip takes about 6 hours, wowing you views of the splendid Kenyan countryside, the Great Rift Valley viewpoint being the most captivating. Next comes awe-inspiring peeks into the paradisiacal Rift Valley floors. The lush vegetation, captivating escarpments, and large assortment of birds.

Expect effortless panorama, spectacular wildlife sightings, and unbroken views of the sensationally rich and enchanting Kenyan scenery. Have your Camera-ready. You stop briefly at Narok town for last-minute shopping and stretch those legs. 

While camping in Masai Mara, you have the option of pitching your tent for those that prefer the out-in-the-wild camping experience.  Alternatively, camps such as Mara springs safari camp provides excellent camping grounds for those not for the outdoor camping idea. 

The Rhino camp is also one of the popular options for camping in Masai Mara. There are also hundreds of other tented camps to stay in during your Masai Mara tours, like Basecamp, Mara Maisha, and others. 

Our professional guide will leave you to take lunch and then take you for an afternoon game drive at Masai Mara

Day 2: Full-Day Game Drive at Masai Mara National Reserve with Packed Lunch

Wake up early enough to accommodate breakfast and a 6:30 am game drive. Sunlight guides you out of your camp into the open grassland savannah known as the finest there is in Africa. The game drives are the reason the word dumbfounding exists in the first place. They promise views of nearly 450 wildlife, 470 bird species, and perfect terrain.

Expect sightings of elephants, zebras, lesser kudu, hyenas, antelopes, cheetahs, lions, leopards, baboons, and wildebeests, among many others. The game drive also takes you to the Mara triangle, known for its pristinely and wildlife-swamped nature. 

You return to camp for lunch before heading back for the evening game drive of this 3 days Masai Mara camping safari. An alternative is to carry packed lunch and set out for a full-day game drive.

In this case, you will relax for an hour to have lunch and head for the evening game drive. Evening game drives are as magical as the morning ones. Well, maybe a little more magical. The Mara is quieter now, with many animals gathering around the Talek and Mara Rivers for refreshment.

This is the time to spot some predator-prey action, for there is almost always a lion camouflaged in the long Mara grass waiting to strike. It is also the best time to spot large elephant herds as they troll back to their sleeping quarters. 

Day 3: Optional Morning Game Drive, Visit a Maasai Village, & Transfer to Nairobi

You board your 4×4 land cruiser for a morning game drive (IF STAYING INSIDE THE RESERVE). This time, the drives are done in the hope of spotting the animals you might have missed on day 2, like the often elusive leopards. 

You take down the tent, in the case that you brought your tent. Otherwise, we will check you out of your Masai Mara tented camps and board the vehicle back to Nairobi or JKIA.

Happily, your Masai Mara safari 3 days tour is over.  We shall escort you back to the airport or residence and leave you to relax. We hope to welcome you and your friends back to Kenya. Kwaheri (bye).
