Day 1: Arrival for Kenya Tsavo Man Eaters Safari – Tsavo Game Reserves.
On arrival, you will meet your guide then transfer to the hotel. Depending on the time of arrival, you visit Nairobi National Park or the National Museum of Kenya. Nairobi National Park established in 1746, is today Kenya’s oldest Game Park. Lying only 7 km away from Nairobi capital city, the park surprisingly still has varied habitats which include open, rolling grass plains, riverine woodland, valley thicket and bush, artificial dams and ponds, rocky gorges and upland dry forest. The park is fenced along three sides, where it is adjacent to urban housing, industry, roads and airports; only the southern border, along the Embakasi and Athi rivers, is open for animal dispersal. The park has healthy populations of big game among which include Zebras, Wildebeests, Elands which are July–August migrants into the park and African Lions, Cape Buffaloes, Leopards, Nile Crocodiles, Cheetahs, Hippopotamus and some more who are residents. The park is a rhino sanctuary and numbers of the Black Rhino are steadily increasing. Overnight at Nairobi Safari Club.

Day 2: Kenya Safari to Masai Mara Game National Park – Kenya Tours.
Have breakfast then transfer to Masai Mara Game reserve. This park is the world’s most famous for big game viewing! The reserve is located app. 275 km from Nairobi, was opened in November 1974 and has since become Kenya's most famous and popular animal reserve. Simply the best big-game country in Kenya and should not be missed on a Kenya Safari. The park is remarkable for its great concentration of large herbivores and their attendant predators. The extraordinary annual migration of over 1.5 million Wildebeests and over 200,000 Grant's zebra that starts from the Serengeti plains to the Mara grasslands from late June is world famous. There are also large numbers or the African Elephant, African Lion, Hippopotamuses and the Nile crocodile in the huge Musiara Swamp, Topi, Gazelles, a number of primates, and many more. We have lunch enroute and an afternoon game drive in the afternoon. Overnight at Masai Mara Sopa Lodge.

Day 3: Masai Mara Wildlife Viewing Tour - Kenya Safaris.
In the morning session, we do a game drive through the mara plains; enjoy game, botany, avifauna, Scenery and much more. After lunch at the lodge, we visit the famous Masai people in the afternoon. The Masai Mara Safari would seem incomplete without an encounter with the legendary Masai people from which the reserve derives the name. They are strongly independent people, still paying a lot of attention to their traditional rituals. Strikingly tall and slender, swathed in brilliant locally made red cloth, hung about with beads and metal jewellery. Young men prefer long, plaited, ochre-daubed hairstyles and have a formidable reputation for glamour, prowess and ferocity. Traditionally the Maasai live off the milk and blood of their beloved cattle and believe that all the cattle in the world are theirs. The Masai People believe, they are not just residents of this area but are much a part of the life of the land as the land is part of their lives. Overnight at Masai Mara Sopa Lodge.

Day 4: Transfer to Nairobi for Departure.
We have breakfast then transfer to the airport for your departure. End of the famous Masai Mara Safari.
