Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve is one of Africa's grandest wilderness areas. Opportunities to see the Big Five and the Annual Migration are popular requests from safari travelers visiting the Masai Mara. This superb 4 Days Masai Mara Fly-In Safari includes return flights, transfers, meals, game viewing in 4x4 vehicles with English speaking guide.
Early morning transfer from your Nairobi hotel to Wilson Airport for the flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to the lodge for check in and lunch. Lunch is followed by a late afternoon game viewing drive. Return to camp for sunset drinks and dinner. The Mara is a spectacular expanse of open grassland which covers 1,510 km² in the south-west corner of Kenya. The tree-lined Mara River has a healthy population of hippos and crocodiles. The crocodiles are most active during the Mara River crossings of the great migration. Wildlife roam freely throughout the vast Masai Mara Ecosystem. There are no boundaries or fences to obstruct the movement and migration of animals. The Masai Mara and the Serengeti effectively form a continuous ecosystem and jointly host the annual spectacle of the migration. Each year, normally in August and September, the Mara plays host to the most spectacular Wildebeest Migration. Millions of ungulates move across the plains in an endless stream. Watching this vast herd move with the predators that follow them is fascinating. Thousands of wildlife documentaries and photographs bear testament to this amazing phenomenon and reserve.
There is an option to enjoy a hot air balloon ride and float across the savannah plains above herds of wildlife. Watch the sun rise over the horizon and after an hour flight (with ample opportunities for photography and video filming); enjoy a tasty bush breakfast before a return game drive back to camp. The Maasai are a proud semi-nomadic cattle-rearing people with a fascinating culture. Meet the local Maasai community on a visit to a local school and village (manyatta). Feel the wilderness, smell the air and experience the thrill of seeing wildlife on foot. Guided game walks are conducted in the company of Maasai guides at a comfortable pace. The guides will also provide a wealth of information on the traditional medicinal uses of plants and Masai folklore. Walks can be taken either in the morning or afternoon, and take around 1½ to 2 hours.
Enjoy a final early morning game drive. After breakfast, transfer back to the airstrip for the scheduled flight to Nairobi, where the your Masai Mara fly-in safari ends.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
