Tour Detail

Day 01: Arrive in Nairobi

Arrival at JKIA Nairobi Kenya. You will be received by our safari representative and transferred to your Hotel in Nairobi. Here you will be welcomed by our Photography Director and safari team as you settle for the evening. You will spend your overnight at the Sarova Panafric Hotel.

Day 02: Safari by road Nairobi to Maasai Mara

0600 HRS. Wake up call as we prepare for breakfast and departure. We will have a short safari brief from our Photography Director. A final check on all the equipment after which we will board our vehicles for the drive to Maasai Mara,
0700HRS. We embark on this 6 hour drive to the Maasai Mara. The drive takes us through lush farmlands before arriving at the rift valley escarpment where we will have a brief stopover for photos.

The Great Rift Valley is one of the wonders of the world, stretching from the Syria, down through Africa, stretching as far as Mozambique. The mesmerizing view, as you approach from Nairobi, Kenya is breathtaking. The ground suddenly disappears from under you to show the huge expanse of the great rift, stretching into the horizon in either direction. Whilst this stunning introduction to the Rift valley is amazing in itself, actually descending and exploring the Lakes area of the Rift in Kenya is a “not to be missed” opportunity.

We will proceed with the journey west arriving at our Camp in time for lunch.
1300Hrs. We check in at the camp and proceed for hot lunch at the camp. After lunch we will settle in our rooms as we prepare to start our Photo Safari adventure.
1600Hrs. We depart for our evening Safari in search of the Wildlife.
The Maasai Mara is probably one of Kenya’s most visited reserve with an extraordinary density of animals including the Big five and many other varieties of plains game. The Mara River cuts through the Mara and Serengeti eco systems giving life to the both reserves before finally pouring out into the Lake Victoria.
Impressive and most notable is the wildebeest, zebra and gazelle instinct led migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Mara in Kenya. This journey is coupled by numerous obstacles which makes it even more magnificent.
Meals and nights will be at the Olumara Tented Camp.

Day 03 – 05: On Safari at Maasai Mara

We will be spending 07 complete days in the Maasai Mara.
0500Hrs: Wakeup call at the Camp. We will have some coffee or tea served with biscuits before we venture out for the Safari.
0600Hrs: We depart our camp for Safari. This will always be determined by the Wildlife migration patterns and prevailing weather conditions. We will carry picnic breakfast to maximize on our time outside photographing Wildlife.
1000Hrs: We will stop in the wilderness for our Safari style bush picnic breakfast.
1100Hrs: Return to camp for rest and Lunch.
1530Hrs: We venture out again for safari
1900Hrs: We return to our camp for an overnight rest.
Every day after the safari, we will be meeting with our Safari director to plan for the upcoming day and share among the group. Meals and nights will be at the Olumara Tented camp.

ABOUT THE CAMP: An Eco-friendly luxury tented camp; Mara Crossings Camp is uniquely located on the banks of the World famous Mara River.

Vibrant and rejuvenating, Olumara Camp lies among indigenous shrubs right at the mighty Olare Orok rivers edge. A wild, yet intimate experience in the thick of the resident game this is the perfect vantage point for one of the most famous fording points of the wildebeest migration. Well used animal trails meander between 8 spacious, ensuite safari tents while quiet outlooks on the river’s edge allow guests, cocktail in hand to dream the afternoon away!

The camp is ideally located in the Musiara region famous for its plains of teeming wildebeest and no less carnivorous predators. The most unique aspect of this quaint camp is its close proximity to the various migratory CROSSING points thereby offering sightings of the annual movement of wildebeest and other herbivores across the Serengeti – Mara Ecosystem – one of the greatest spectacles in the natural world!

Day 06: Maasai Mara drive to Nairobi

On our last day at the Maasai Mara, we will have an early morning out photographing Wildlife. We depart from our camp at 0630. We return to our camp at 0900 Hrs. for breakfast and refreshing before our transfer to  to Nairobi. Upon arrival in Nairobi, you will be transferred to t JKIA (Jomo Kenyatta International Airport) for your departing flight.
