Detailed 3 Day Masai Mara Safari Kenya
Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara – Kenya
Leaving Kampala, the capital of Uganda, we drive down the cliffs along the picturesque Great Rift Valley. Leaving the city center, we will always enjoy the peace of the countryside. It’s a 16-hour drive, so be prepared for exciting scenes like cliffs and canyons. We have lunch on the road. We will arrive in time for dinner. We then embark on our first exciting game drive in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the most popular safari destination in East Africa.
The Mara Game Reserve is an incredible 1,510 square kilometers of open landscape and fertile riverine forest that winds along Kenya’s Mara and Talek rivers. One glance is enough to illustrate its appeal; it is a typical open savanna with an amazing abundance of wildlife.
Returning from our first foray into Masai Mara, we had dinner, rested under the stars, and fell asleep to the sounds of the bush. We are looking forward to the surprise of this Kenyan safari when the company finds out that we have a couple on this Kenyan safari.
Day 2 of 3 Days Masai Mara Safari Kenya: Maasai Mara Game Reserve – Kenya
Day two is wildlife at Kenya’s best safari park in the Masai Mara National Reserve. Our full-day tour takes us in search of Africa’s Big Five and the abundance of other wildlife that inhabit this vast Kenyan game reserve. On a clear day, Mara offers dreamy orange sunsets that are worth capturing on camera.
Wherever you go in the great Masai Mara, you will often see a lot of wildlife such as Masai giraffes, baboons, warthogs, bat foxes, gray jackals, spotted hyenas, topis, impalas, antelopes, and wildebeest. Elephants, buffalo, zebras, and hippos are also plentiful. Lions are often seen sunbathing after a big meal or looking for their next meal on the plains.
Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but are quite common. The main activity here is undoubtedly the annual Great Wildebeest Migration, the Great Migration, which takes place in July and August, when millions of herbivores move north from the Serengeti in search of greener grass, and then south again in October. A hot air balloon ride is a great way to see the savannah plain where wildlife thrives.
These Masai Mara hot air balloon rides are available for an additional fee ($450 per person). One of the most exciting things these days is to be part of the great wildebeest phenomenon while sipping a bottle of wine.
Day 3 of 3 Days Masai Mara Safari Kenya: Masai Mara to Nairobi – Kenya
We left the Kenyan safari camp and drove through the Maasai Mara National Reserve on the third morning. We then head back to bustling Nairobi, arriving around 3 pm This unforgettable 3-day budget Masai Mara Kenya camping safari concludes with a return to Nairobi.

Where to Visit on the 3 Days Masai Mara Safari Kenya
Maasai Mara National Reserve
This is a huge game reserve in the semi-arid Narok region of Kenya. It borders the Serengeti National Park in the Mara region of Tanzania. It is named after the Maasai people who are the ancestors of the area. Mara means maa found in the Maasai language.
The Masai Mara is famous for its unique wildlife population and the wildebeest migration to and from the Serengeti during the dry season from July to October each year. This is often called the Great Migration. A visit to the reserve is an adventure in a cultural tour to one of the oldest inhabitants of East Africa, the Maasai. This noble tribe is one of the few where we preserve most of our traditions. It features a team of traditional dancers who perform call-and-response dances, perhaps their best-known dance being the Big Wood Dance or rather the Leap Dance. You can join in the dance as these agile male dancers leap higher and higher to the beat of the captivating music that accompanies their dance moves.
There are several tourist activities in Masai Mara. These include hot air balloons over the reserve, safaris, nature walks, bird watching, field trips, guided bush walks, and trekking.
Marseille Cultural Tour
This tour goes to a Maasai village, a place like no other. Outside the Maasai Mara National Reserve is a Maasai community called Mara Rianda. In Marseille (Manassas) there is a traditional house consisting of 48 traditional houses around a bullfighter (www.governorscamp.camp). A Maasai Mara Safari will allow you to visit some of East Africa’s oldest inhabitants who lived in small grass-covered mud villages and buildings.
They are surrounded by cattle, which is their prestigious property. Their cows are highly respected. In addition, they also own other smaller livestock such as goats. The nobles are one of the few tribes that retain most of their traditions, lifestyles, and legends. Maasai say “Maa”. As soon as you enter the village, you will notice the many colors of Maasai clothing on display. The men, armed with spears, were tall and proud.
The women, on the other hand, wore bright pearl earrings and scarves, all decorated with bright red, blue, and purple shuka pants patterns. The bright Shuka provides a strong and vivid contrast to the green and brown colors of the landscape. Attractive collarless beads, bracelets, and charms are not only decorative. Women create these intricate works to express their identity and social status.
In stark contrast to the colorful villagers stand the brown and gray houses, which the masses call boma. They are small structures with thatched roofs. As a tradition, Maasai women are responsible for building stable dwellings. They start with a framework of wooden poles, in which smaller branches are woven together to form a structure. Then cover them with a mixture of mud, grass, cow dung, urine, and ash. Their men built protective fences around the village to protect the livestock from lions and other predators.
A visit to a Maasai village allows you to participate in their graceful, ever-changing rhythmic call-and-response song, perhaps their best-known Adumu dance, or ‘leap dance’. You can also buy a handmade souvenir to remind you of the exciting visit to the Masai Mara.
