After clearing customs and immigration at the airport, a shuttle bus will transfer those on group flights to Wilson Airport on the Western side of the city; Land only passengers will join here. This is normally during rush hour so expect some traffic. Wilson is a nice airport and there should be time for some refreshments before boarding the 45 minute flight to the Mara. Here 4WD vehicles await for the transfer to our luxury permanent tented camp.
Day 2 - 3
We spend two full days with morning and afternoon game drives and optional game walks. As the best time to view game is early morning or late afternoon we will return to camp during the hottest part of the day where we can relax in the common areas and even look out for game right from the porch of our tents. We never know what we will see when out game viewing but many emblematic African animals are commonly seen here including lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, cheetahs, wildebeest, hippos, rhinos and numerous others. It is also possible to see some of the more elusive ones such as leopards and Wild dogs. During the Great Migration season, from August to October, we spend some time watching one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles on Earth as millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles attempt to cross the river from the Serengetti whilst crocodiles, lions and other predators lie in wait. Those interested can also take an optional hot air balloon ride for a bird?s eye view of the African plains and its fascinating wildlife.
This morning we have a final game drive before flying back to Nairobi in the afternoon. Those on group flights will be transferred back to Jomo Kenyatta Airport in time for their return flight home.
