The Detailed 2 Nights, 3 Days Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration Safari Itinerary 

Without further ado, here is the detailed, 3 Days Masai Mara migration safari package. The itinerary covers everything you will see and do during the 2 nights safari at Masai Mara National Reserve.

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

We pick you up from the Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi in the morning. Our safari guide will be there an hour earlier to make sure you are not stranded when you arrive. You will spot them immediately as they will have placards displaying your name. 

If you arrive early, around 4 am, we will briefly stop at the Nairobi Java House in town for some breakfast before the road trip to the Masai Mara. This is also the time to check if you have the necessary travel gear for your trip. 

Some of the things that you will need will include a mobile phone, a camera, clothes, snacks for the road trip, items of personal nature like tissues, and sanitary ware. These can be purchased in the city center before we embark on the road trip. 

This is your maiden trip to Kenya, we are aiming to show you the beauty of Kenya as you sit back, relax and enjoy the cool Kenyan Climate. We will make a short stop at the Mai Mahiu for a view of the rift valley. Grab this chance to take memorable pictures of the postcard look-alike Great Rift Valley down below.

You can also purchase beautiful handmade trinkets and souvenirs from the curio shop here. From here, your wildebeest migration wonder of the world tour will take you to Narok town. We will make a brief stop here before continuing with the rest of the road trip

You will get to the Masai Mara National Reserve in the early afternoon. We check you in at the chosen camp or lodge. The hotel is strategically located at the route of the great migration and you can watch the migration spectacle even at night.

After freshening up, carry a snack along and let us get to take our first game drive in the exciting Mara. Late in the afternoon, we are likely to encounter a herd of lazy elephants trudging along. The Lion, Cheetah, zebras, and giraffes can also be sighted easily. We get back in the evening for dinner.

Over the night, expect to hear the exciting animal sounds of animals hunting and being hunted outside in the plains around. You cannot miss the unmistakable sounds of the trumpeting elephants while wallowing in the Mara River.

Day 2: Hot Air Balloon Safari Followed by Wildebeest Migration Tour with Picnic Lunch

We rise up at dawn for an exciting balloon safari around the Mara. The wonderful view down below will reveal the stealthy leopard and cheetah stalking their prey, the early birds skirting the grounds for worms and flowers, and other small animals grazing and foraging for food.

The view also displays the green expansive plains down below. We land after 1-1.5 hours and the breakfast sight. Here you will enjoy a bush breakfast with champagne and then continue with the morning game drives.

Our Maasai guide will pack a picnic basket so that you can spend your day out in the wild. Armed with your camera and some drinks and snacks, we will park at the Mara River and watch the spectacle of thousands of wildebeest crossing the river amid preying crocodiles. This is a breath-taking spectacle.

Watching your favorite animal make it safely through and sympathizing with the ones that do not make it.  After the picnic lunch, there is more game viewing around the park to catch sight of the big five. The park is also home to antelopes, jackals, buffaloes, hippos, birds, hyenas, jackals, rhinos, and warthogs.

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

We leave for a game drive in the early morning as the bright sunshine is bringing the Mara to life. After breakfast, we will go for the final game viewing of this safari. We park by the Mara River. We marvel at the ongoing wildebeest migration-taking place right before our eyes. 

From here, we will start the road trip to Nairobi. We will pass by the Maasai Village and get to buy more trinkets and adornments to take back home. The hospitable Maasai live in grass and mud-walled structures that you will spot here. They are deeply embedded in their culture and have learned to coexist peacefully with the wildlife around here.

We take lunch in Narok Town. The Nyama Choma (Grilled Meat) and Ugali (cornmeal) are some of the tasty Kenyan Dishes you may try. Here you can also buy more handmade adornments and beadwork from the Maasai community. We travel back to Nairobi by road. Our guide will punctually drop you at the Jomo Kenyatta airport to board your flight.

Masai Mara Migration Time – Masai Mara Migration 2024 Dates

The Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is home to the world’s most spectacular wildlife migration, and 2024 will be no exception. From approximately July to October of 2024, millions of wildebeest, gazelles, zebras, and other animals will migrate through the reserve on their way north into the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. 

This is one of nature’s most remarkable events, and witnessing it firsthand can be a truly life-changing experience!  The exact dates of the migration vary slightly from year to year, but in 2024 it should begin around mid-July, peaking toward the end of August and early September, and ending in late October. 

During the peak months, it is possible to witness endless herds of wildebeest and zebra thundering through the Mara River as they make their way across the plains. Other incredible spectacles that can be seen include predators such as cheetahs, lions, and hyenas hunting on the open plains and in the bush.
