Tour Overview

Flying to a mesmerising destination, the Masai Mara National Reserve. Set in the heart of Africa’s Great Plains in Kenya, the Masai Mara boasts 1,672 sq. kilometres of unspoilt wilderness. It offers the best game and bird-viewing not only in Kenya but anywhere in Africa.

Most stunning are the months between July and October when the savannah teems with animals during the Great Wildebeest Migration. Millions of wildebeest gather in the Masai Mara, one of the world’s natural wonders. It’s a place of natural drama, a kaleidoscope of colour and life.

Staying at Governors’ Camp puts you right in the heart of the action, closer than anyone else to its incredible sights and sounds. The Camp is Africa’s first permanent tented camp, remaining in its original site since 1972.

Nestled in the riverine forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, its waters teeming with bird life, hippos and crocodile. It is perfect for couples, families and friends who want to experience what a safari in the Masai Mara offers.

Tour Itinerary
Day by Day

When you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met and driven to Wilson Airport for your flight to Masai Mara. The flight takes around 45 minutes, and you fly over the scenically beautiful Great Rift Valley.

On arrival in the Masai Mara, it’s a short game drive en route to the camp before an al fresco lunch overlooking the Mara River. Embark on a thrilling afternoon game drive at around 15h30 and return at dusk for drinks and chatter around the campfire before dinner. Finally, fall asleep to the night-time chorus of the Masai Mara.

The Masai Mara is one of Kenya’s most sought-after game-viewing areas. The reserve itself covers 700sq miles of magnificent wilderness. It is the Africa of your imagination, with endless reaches of acacia-dotted grasslands studded with hazy hills.

Arise early each morning to make the most of your spectacular location. Each day will offer you the option of three game drives within the Mara National Reserve, immersing yourself in this rich wildlife destination. Masai Mara offers such wide-ranging and abundant wildlife that it is difficult to comprehend. Over 450 species of animals have been recorded, including lions, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, hyenas, wild dogs, buffalo, leopards, many kinds of antelopes and elephants.

In the Mara, the most spectacular natural world event happens, ‘‘The Great Annual Migration,” of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (in Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following their heels are the savannah predators: lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vulture.

For a memorable experience, enjoy a surreal journey in a hot air balloon over the Masai Mara plains. This adventure begins just before dawn; depart the camp at 05h15 to the Balloon Safaris take-off site.  The excellent sunrise flight lasts approximately one hour, depending on weather conditions.

On landing, sit down to a delicious bush breakfast, freshly cooked on balloon burners in the middle of the Mara plains. Toast your return to Mother Earth with your pilot over a glass of sparkling wine. Then, the game drives back to your camp.

On your final day, head out on an early morning game drive at sunrise, followed by breakfast at the camp. If you depart the Mara on a late afternoon flight, there will be an opportunity for one more game drive (late morning) and a delicious lunch back at the camp.

After lunch, you will be transferred to the airstrip to catch your flight to Nairobi. On arrival in Nairobi, you will be met and transferred to a restaurant for dinner (dinner to be paid direct). After dinner, transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your international flight home.
