This 4 days Masai mara safari is ideal for travelers who are short on time but still want to experience the very best of East Africa’s most magnificent wildlife reserves. Tight schedules due to work or other constraints are simply a fact of life but we don’t think this should stop you from making the most of the Masai Mara on safari.
From Lake Nakuru National Park to the plains of the Masai Mara, this is your chance to encounter animals in Kenya from the best possible angle. Visits to local Masai villages also provide an array of authentic and insightful East African experiences, many of which are bound to be absolutely unforgettable. Thanks to Kenya’s East African location you’ll also find every opportunity to continue your travels in the region with beach breaks in Lamu, Mombasa, or Zanzibar just as worthwhile as extended time spent in the Serengeti or the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania.
