A safari in Masai Mara is arguably the best wildlife adventure experience in the world and this is certainly not an over statement. The reserve is home to some of the most diverse collection of animals, not just the 'Big Five' but also the 'Big Nine' most of which can be seen during a safari tour in Masai Mara. Though the wildbeest migration season from July to September is the highlight of the year, a Masai Mara safari is a rewarding experience all year round. We are listing several 2023 and 2024 Masai Mara tour packages below which range from budget road tours to luxury Fly-In Safaris staying at boutique Tented Camps. You can also check some of our recommended Kenya Safari itineraries here.
Fly~in or "Flyng Safaris" as these are also known offer the convenience of getting to Masai Mara within an hour from Nairobi and are norm for certain Safari Camps in Maasai Mara which are more remote or those that only offer packaged stays including safari drives. Flights take off from Wilson airport in Nairobi twice daily and upon arrival at the airstrip in the Mara, guests are received and transfered to their respective Camp or Lodge in time for lunch. Game drives are provided in 4x4 Safari Tour Vehicles by the property.
The most popular mode of getting to Masai Mara is by road, typically starting and ending in Nairobi, with the choice of vehicle being a 4x4 Landcruiser Jeep or the less costly Safari Minibus (Tour Van). The trip from Nairobi to Masai Mara typically takes 5 to 6 hours depending on which Camp has been booked for your tour. The benefit of a safari by road is the typically lower tour cost as well as getting to see and experience more of the real Kenyan countryside. The downside is that stretches of road on the route are of below average condition.
