2Night/3Days : Kitchwa Tembo Camp
Day 01 : Nairobi - Masai Mara
icked from your Hotel or JKIA and transferred to Wilson Airport for the scheduled flight to the Masai Mara. The Masai Mara is the jewel of Kenya's game parks, located in the northern section of the great Serengeti plains. The reserve is the home of the "Big Five" … elephant, lion, leopard, buffallo, rhino as well as cheetah, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, hippo, impala, gazalle and numerous other including hundreds of species of birds.
Your accommodation for the next two nights will be at KITCHWA TEMBO CAMP, one of the Mara's luxury tented camps, allowing you to experience nights "in the bush" with all comforts of home. Overlooking the endless game-filled plains of the Masai-Mara and shaded by dense forest canopy, this oasis of Hemingway-style tents nestles below the Oloololo Escarpment. Each luxurious tent affords sweeping views over the greatest grassland system on earth, still under the guardianship of the pastoral Ilkareskeshe Masai tride. Exciting game-drives and interpretive bush-walks with resident guides and naturalists reveal the wonders of the Mara.
After checking in and enjoying lunch you will have some time to relax and take a dip in the pool before again meeting up with your private guide and departing on an afternoon game in search of the big five. The low afternoon light is prefect for photographing the beautiful rolling plains of the Masai Mara. Dinner and overnight at KITCHWA TEMBO CAMP.
Day 02: Masai Mara
This morning you will be awakened before dawn and after a cup of Tea or Coffee, you will set out at sunrise on an early morning game drive. The Mara is magical in the morning, the birds are singing, the morning air smells fresh and cool and the wildlife is just waking up to greet the day. Zebra's 'rolic greet each other, a pair of jackels prance through the grass in search of mice a rabbit, baboons chatter noisily and curious giraffe watch you as nibble on their breakfast of acacia leaves. You may even upon a loin family feeding on the last nights kill or a leopard snoozing in a tree.
After returning to the camp for a sumptuous buffet breakfast you will depart with your driver guide on a mid-morning game drive this time venturing deeper into the Mara. Don't forget to look for the "little five" -Thomson's gazelle, jackel, African hare, vervet monkey and banded mongoose. These little animals can be just as exciting and more fun to watch than the more popular larger animals.
You will return to your camp for lunch and after some time to relax at the pool or do some bird-watching from the verandah of your tent, you will depart on the afternoon game drive. The plains are full of surprises - pride of lion with their playful cubs, families of Ostrich parading over the plains etc. Return to camp early in the evening for dinner and overnight KITCHWA TEMBO CAMP.
Day 03: MASAI MARA - NAIROBI
After breakfast you will say goodbye to the bush and transferred to the Airstrip where you will depart with the 11:00am flight back to Nairobi Wilson Airport. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to your Hotel or JKIA.
