Journey Details

DAY 1-3 Masai Mara National Reserve

One of Kenya’s undisputed natural highlights is the Masai Mara National Reserve, which sprawls across more than 1500 square kilometres of the country’s southwest. The park protects a phenomenal array of game, including elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo, as well as crocodile and hippopotamus in the Mara River. The birdlife is no less impressive, with over 450 resident bird species. However, the true highlight here is the Great Migration, recognised as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. To survive the dry months of July to September, some 1.7 million wildebeest, migrate from the parched plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Along with much smaller numbers of antelope, buffalo and zebra, they move to the more forgiving grasslands of the Masai Mara. In their wake come predators such as lion, hyena and cheetah, for whom these giant herds are an easy source of prey.

Where you will stay: House In The Wild

House in the Wild is a luxury boutique eco-lodge tucked away on a 1000 acre private estate on the banks of the Mara River. The lodge is surrounded by the game within the Enonkishu Conservancy who migrate freely between the neighboring conservancies. The lodge can comfortably accommodate up 16 people and is decorated with hand-crafted furniture and features modern amenities. House in the Wild comes fully staffed and has as an excellent chef and safari guide.

Mutuma and the team at Designer Safari could not have made the planning of this safari easier for us. The pricing and included aspects of the trip were clear and presented upfront; the communication was transparent and continous; and the chosen safari spot, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo was perfect. I couldn't recommend this team enough!
