We really wanted to go on safari in Kenya, and besides, it was the first time we traveled having launched Trip to Help. In addition to enjoying ourselves, we had our sights set on analyzing what we were going to experience and then tell about it. And above all, we wanted to see what it was like to go on safari with masai. We also wanted to see how it differed from the 5-day safari we did in Tanzania, which one would we like the most? Is Kenya better than Tanzania? We didn’t know that.

These and other questions were on our minds. It was our first business trip* with Trip to Help, and that added a little more nervousness, as well as excitement. And one more thing: Raquel was 16 months pregnant. Undoubtedly, from the very beginning, it was an adventure we would never forget.

*Note: If you have just arrived at this post and you don’t really understand what it is about going on safari in Kenya, read “About Us“, and you will get to know us better and you will have all the information about what we are and what we do.

Let’s go step by step, we will explain how to get to Kenya, how to get into the Maasai Mara, and then we will detail all the highlights of our safari in Kenya. Here we go!

How to get to Kenya

If you want to go on safari in Kenya, the easiest thing to do is to look for a flight to Nairobi. Nairobi Airport is very well connected to all of Europe and you can find flights at good prices. Most of the time, just one scale is enough.

We bought the flight at short notice, had a hard time finding a cheap flight and had to pay 745 euros per person (i/v) with a stopover in Amsterdam. Since Raquel was pregnant, we wanted to wait until we had the first tests and ultrasounds to know that everything was going well. If we had not waited (which we usually do), the flights would have cost us 200 euros cheaper. But on this occasion, we put the brakes on and bought them at the last minute.

It is advisable to buy them a few months in advance. If you want to search for cheap flights to Kenya, the best tool is Skyscanner:

Once we arrived at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, our driver was already waiting to take us to the Masai Mara, where most safaris in Kenya take place.

At the exit of the airport, there are 3-4 phone company stores where you can buy a SIM card to have coverage and internet during the whole trip. We purchased a SIM card from safaricom. It cost us about 20€, 15 GB of internet with calls included.

How to arrive to the Masai Mara

To go to the Masai Mara there are two options: by 4×4 jeep or by light aircraft. We went in a 4×4 van, the trip took about 5 hours. On the way back we decided to go by plane, and it was about 45 minutes. We, now that we have experienced it, recommend both: it is a good combination. With a car you can stop and see the incredible landscapes, and perceive the brutal contrast between Nairobi, its outskirts, and then the rural areas. It allows you to soak in a thousand impacts, and that’s part of the journey. By plane, on the other hand, besides going much faster and being less tiring, you see Kenya from the air, its infinity, the savannah, the fields, and you realize the abysmal differences between flying over any country in Europe, and flying over this African country.

We arrived in Nairobi at 7 am, and at 9 am, after doing several formalities (passport stamping, baggage collection, SIM card registration, etc) we left with our driver towards Masai Mara. As we crossed the Rift Valley, we stopped to take some pictures at a lookout point with several craft and beverage stores. Beautiful! Here we begin to enjoy nature.

We arrived at our lodge in the middle of the Maasai Mara.

A few hours later we arrived at the lodging of the NGO we were going to visit, and without resting even 5 minutes we got into another 4×4 to make our first safari in the Masai Mara. This project is now the one you too can visit if you travel with Trip to Help to Kenya. Thanks to the tourism, they are able to pay for the education of some 400 children, and they also have women’s empowerment and microcredit programs to help the local population earn a living. They have 9 glampings like this one, it’s all inclusive, and you have the school next door, which you can get to know in detail. More than 80% of your trip with Trip to Help has a direct impact on this project. We explain below!

A new way to travel: a sustainable and responsible safari

In Trip to Help we only offer experiences and routes that we have previously lived in first person and that we know with certainty that they have a positive impact on the visited territory. In this case, we did not want to do a safari with a local Kenyan company, but with an NGO founded by a Maasai leader that allocates all the profits from tourism to social projects for the Maasai community, e.g. schools for children or women’s empowerment programs. In this way, you travel and have an unforgettable experience, and at the same time, you contribute. This model, in addition to putting sustainability first, has a regenerative impact: that is, you not only travel while respecting the ecosystem, the local culture, and its people. You travel while contributing to the sustainable development of the territory. You don’t leave the place as you found it, but your trip makes it better.

Doing a solidarity safari in Kenya with Trip to Help has several advantages:

  • You collaborate with the development of the community since the money is distributed equitably and does not remain in the hands of an entrepreneur.
  • You do it directly with the Maasai, they are the center of everything, and the ones who know the territory better than anyone else (they have been living there for centuries).
  • You sleep in an environmentally sustainable accommodation (no plastics, with a policy of reuse of certain utensils, a daily amount of water available, solar panels, kitchen with local and proximity food…).
  • Important: you are in the Masai Mara, but outside the National Reserve. You are in a conservancy area, where the Maasai people live. They have not been expelled from there. Being in a conservancy area means being calmer. There is practically no influx of tourists, and this is noticeable when going on safari, and in the tranquility of the animals. If you read the Lonely Planet of Kenya you will see that they explain that recently, they have seen a change in the behavior of the animals in the National Reserve, which often move to quieter areas, such as conservation areas. According to some studies, more than 65% of the wild animals are in Conservancy areas.
  • You enjoy it as much or more than doing the safari with a local company because there is no one better than a Maasai to find lions or other predators.
  • Double happiness for the traveler: You enjoy an unforgettable experience while helping the community.

Not to be confused with volunteering

It is important not to confuse this type of tourism with volunteering or voluntourism. They are different things. Neither is it the same an agency or guide that collaborates by giving a % of its profits to an NGO or local project, or exist to give practically everything to the community, as a philosophy, as is the case of Trip to Help. On the second day of the safari we explain a little more about this.

Going on safari in Kenya

First day of Safari in Kenya.

We arrived at the camp, left everything except the camera, and went on our first safari in Kenya. We joined a photographer and other people who were staying at the same NGO camp. We were two cars, we were with William, guide and leader of the Maasai community, and Rosa, both founders of the NGO.

Only after leaving our lodge, about 10 minutes away, we were already on the trails in search of animals, and a few minutes later we had giraffes, zebras, wildebeests and hyenas around us.

Enjoying a walking safari

It was our first day on safari and we already saw a couple of lions resting in the grass. But the best was yet to come. Suddenly, in a beautiful and super green area, they tell us: “get out of the car, you are walking now, we will wait for you later”. We, along with several Maasai warriors, got out of the car. They put some blankets over us, and with no established path, we started walking. We feel a sense of freedom and direct contact with immediate nature. We were stepping on the same ground as all those animals, without barriers. We saw the wildebeest, zebras and gazelles running around us, and it was brutal.

This cannot be done in Natural Parks.

That walking safari was the first big difference with the safaris in Tanzania, where we could not get out of the car while on safari. This is because in Kenya, although we were in the Masai Mara, we were not in the National Reserve, but in a conservation area (Lemek). It is an area where the Maasai live and where they can move around and graze their animals freely.

Here is a map, so you can identify where the conservancy areas are (where, in addition to wildlife, local people live) and the Maasai Mara National Reserve (where no one lives and the hotels are on the outskirts).

Mara National Reserve and Masai Mara Conservancy Areas – Map

One of the most beautiful sunsets in the world: in the middle of the Masai Mara.

After walking for about 15 minutes, we arrived at a point where the two cars were waiting for us with a bonfire, chairs and beers: spectacular.

Another point in favor of the Lemek conservancy area: being an area where the Maasai have control of the territory, they can carry out certain activities typical of their culture in the middle of nature, such as making bonfires and dancing around the fire. Here are some pictures of the sunset:

Masai Mara sunset – Photo by Trip to Help.

After watching the best sunset of our lives, around a fire, with a beer in hand and the best of surroundings, we returned to the cars to go to camp.

Along the way we encountered a group of buffaloes with their calves that cut us off. It was a nervous moment, as buffalo, if they are with calves, can be aggressive if they feel in danger. Luckily, our guide knew how to act at all times, he turned off the lights and little by little the buffalo made way and we were able to continue.

We arrived at the lodge and had dinner ready. How well we would sleep on our first night in Kenya!

Second day of Safari

On the second day we went to watch the school children chant and raise the Kenyan flag, a tradition that all schools follow, every morning.

(The differential factor of doing a sustainable safari is to be able to see the positive impact that your trip has on the territory. Instead of the money being kept by entrepreneurs (local or not), it is distributed to those most in need: the children of the community. It is nice to see how tourism, carried out in a responsible, sustainable, solidarity and very conscious way with the territory, allows the schooling of so many children).

We visited a Maasai village where only women live.

After breakfast we went to see another of the NGO’s projects. It is a Manyatta (small Maasai village) inhabited by women. These are women that the NGO has taken in after they have been expelled from their families/communities for various reasons, some have been abused, raped or disowned by their community for not being able to have children.

We visited the Manyatta and the handicraft market that they themselves organize for tourists. The rules are very clear: the money goes entirely to the woman who sold you the handicraft and the price is not negotiated.

We bought several handicrafts from different women so that we could distribute the money more evenly. It was a very different experience from other Maasai markets in settlements near the safari areas, where, accustomed to tourism, you negotiate and pay money that you never know who gets it (usually it is divided between the translator, your guide, the tribal chief and the woman who has made the handicrafts, who receives the smallest part).

Visiting the Rhinos

In the afternoon we went to a Rhino sanctuary. They are guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for fear of being killed by poachers, as they are in danger of extinction. It is seen that rhino horn is highly valued in countries such as China, where some very wealthy men believe it has aphrodisiac properties. In Kenya, hunting is banned, but poachers continue to poach by breaking the law to trade horns. These two white rhinos, Kofi and Elisabeth, are protected by 6 rangers during the day and 8 at night. This species is highly endangered.

During our visit, they spent the whole time eating grass without practically looking at us, it is obvious that they are practically blind. With us was Zacayo (our guide), a ranger guide and another ranger with a firearm. In our instagram, we have some highlights of Kenya, and in them, we are putting chapters where we explain each experience lived there. Here you can see the chapter of the visit to the white rhino sanctuary.

Stories from our Maasai guide

On the way back, William took us to the place where, as a young boy on his bicycle, he hit an elephant. He told us stories of his childhood, and how he started the project, teaching the children in his community by writing the lesson on a tree. It is incredible the evolution of this project, and William’s positivity and perseverance.

In the end, it got dark and we were able to return to enjoy a wonderful sunset in the Masai Mara.

Third day in Kenya: All-day Safari

Our third day in Kenya was marked in bold because it was the full day safari. We set off in the Toyota 4×4 and immediately began to see animals.

Between the animals and an area with trees, there was a giraffe delimiting the grazing area. William, observing the animals, especially the giraffe, sensed that a predator was hiding in the area of the trees. The giraffe, with its privileged perspective, was the “alarm” for the rest of the animals and, in the middle, a prudent safety zone where there was no one.

So, we went straight to the trees, would William be right? What predator would we find?

Another differential point is that in that area of Kenya, the 4×4 can go wherever they want off the roads and, therefore, you can get closer to the animals. So William took us behind the trees, it didn’t take long to see what he imagined: a large family of lions resting in the shade. Spectacular!

The first lions on safari:

We were alone with the lions, us and them, with no other tourists. We were with them for about 15 minutes at a distance of 10 meters, in absolute silence, as noise bothers them and they can get angry.

Lunch in the middle of the Maasai Mara

It was time for lunch. And as always, the Masai surprised us once again… Our chef Rongo was waiting for us under a tree with the table set and the food ready. In the middle of the Masai Mara, surrounded by greenery, perhaps the best located restaurant in the world. In addition, the food was excellent.

We assure you that the photo does not do justice to the immensity and beauty of the place. And the question is, what about the tourists? Well no, once again we were alone, Raquel, Rosa, William and me.

After lunch we took the opportunity to interview Rosa and William for Trip to Help (we will soon post the interviews) and once the interviews were finished, we continued the safari.

Safari after lunch

And unbeknownst to us, we had not yet experienced the most spectacular.

We met a young lion couple who, according to William, were on their honeymoon. They disappear for about 15 days, move away from the herd, and do nothing but rest and stay together, they hardly eat. We were taking pictures of them, but as they were not moving, we went for a walk and found a lone lion, more mature and older.

We were following him for quite a while, there was a moment when he passed us, literally, behind our car. When a lion passes so close to you, it creates a moment of brutal silence coupled with excitement and adrenaline. Meanwhile, a little farther away the rangers (vigilantes) were taking the cool outside the car.

The most shocking moment of the safari

William suggested going again to the pair of lions who were on a Honeymoon“. We accept the proposal. This time we found the couple a little more awake. Suddenly, in a seemingly impromptu move, the lion gets behind the lioness and they start having sex in front of us. Really? We would not give credit! We were alone, 10-15 meters away and they without any embarrassment (obviously). Even William and Rosa were stunned, and the fact is, you don’t see an image like this very often, even if you are used to going on safaris every day. Here is the video:

Fourth day of safari in Kenya

Masai Mara walking safari

After the emotions of the previous day, today we had a walking safari in the Maasai Mara. We have to admit that we were a bit nervous (especially me, Xavi), as we had 2-3 hours of hiking through the savannah ahead of us without a car. We would be accompanied by two masai warriors.

We left the lodge and started walking. First we crossed several villages without seeing any animals, but at one point we left the last settlements behind. We walked across the savannah while wildebeest, zebras and gazelles looked at us with curiosity.

We crossed an area inhabited by hyenas. The hyenas looked at us from a distance, surprised by our presence, but in no case did they approach us? the Maasai told us that hyenas are mainly scavengers and that they do not attack humans.

Later, Jonathan was waiting for us with breakfast and the car to return to our lodging.

Breakfast after walking safari in Kenya.

Maasai Mass

After breakfast we went directly to our first Maasai mass. Can you imagine a church and/or cathedral or something like that? No, it was a typical local place without any kind of luxury.

It was a long mass, at the beginning there were 3 women singing at full volume, then all the women started to dance, including Raquel. Boys and girls danced. There was also time for the pastor of the church to say a few words. Obviously, we didn’t understand anything they were saying, but Jonathan would occasionally translate for us. It was very curious to see how they make the mass a very lively celebration. On the way out, a Masai woman approached Raquel and gave her her necklace, it was very touching. We later discovered that this type of necklace is given so that in the future, the person who received it will give it to his or her children. Did that girl notice that Raquel was pregnant? Magic.

Christianity and the Maasai

By the way: are you wondering how the Maasai celebrate Christian masses? Yes, we also had the same question. The Maasai culture, like all cultures, is constantly evolving and fluctuating with other cultures. They still believe in the power of nature, but through the influence of missionaries who went to various African countries years ago, many converted to Christianity. It is not a Christianity as we can know it here, they still have their beliefs, and some men are still polygamous. But in this case, they believe in a God.

After mass, we returned to the lodge. Rongo had the food ready for us again and, as always, it was delicious. We had to gather strength, in the afternoon we would go to the Mara River to see the departure of the hippos and camp in an area where only we can do it thanks to William. A safari away from the rest of the tourists awaited us again.

Visit to the Mara River

On the way to the river we took the opportunity to do a little safari, the sun’s rays breaking through the clouds created a beautiful light and color in the savannah.

It started to rain (in the middle of the dry season, which is unusual) and by magic the animals we had not yet seen, the cheetah and the elephant, appeared.

It was a very large group of elephants that William did not want to get too close to. He told us to be very careful with the elephants, which can be dangerous if they get angry. It was a different speech than the one our guide gave us during the Safari in Tanzania, since in Tarangire National Park we were able to get very close to them and a priori they were not dangerous. Honestly, we believe a Maasai like William much more than the guide who took us on safari in Tanzania our first time in the country, a guy from the city of Arusha. Why? The Maasai have lived for centuries surrounded by animals, they know their behaviors and their dangers. On the other hand, a guide in Arusha or Nairobi, although knowledgeable, has not lived with them since childhood.

We are caught in the rain

The family of cheetahs seemed to have decided to cool off in the rain, as they were super-exposed when they are usually hiding in the trees.

The good news is that we finally saw elephants and cheetahs, the bad news is that it was raining a lot and we had to camp at the Mara River. We went to the river and the rain continued. The roads were becoming impracticable due to the water and mud that mixed and made the wheels of the car skid.

We arrived at the Mara River and the hippos were coming out. But the rain was breaking our plan, we couldn’t go out to take pictures, or sit quietly while having a beer. William drove us to our planned campsite, where we would have dinner in the pouring rain. We arrived and found Rongo, Zacayo and other colleagues smiling from ear to ear and cooking with umbrellas…. how could they be in such a good mood when it was raining? We were served dinner and William judiciously told us that we could not spend the night there. But we had a great time, we had dinner with them, and the laughter at the unusual situation was not lost on anyone. Surprises that make your trip more than memorable!

We found a 4×4 Jeep stuck in the savannah in the middle of the night.

The return trip by car was a real adventure, it was getting muddier, it was night, it was raining, and the roads were disappearing. The Masai were having a good time, and seeing that we were laughing too, they made even more jokes. We came across some hippos that had gone out to eat, until we finally took the track that would lead us to the lodge.

On the way we saw another car making warning lights, it was stuck somewhere in the savannah, at night, raining and probably with tourists inside. William didn’t want to go near us, he said that his responsibility was to leave us to the lodge and that he didn’t want to take any risks. Later at the lodge, when I asked him for more explanations (I felt a little bad for having left a car there) he told us that there are people who get into places where they shouldn’t go, because they don’t know how, and then when there is mud they get stuck and that someone from his company would come to help them.

Fifth day in Kenya

With malaise and fever

Our fifth day in Kenya was not the best. The cold/flu we had caught the first day started to hit us harder. Both Raquel and I felt sick, with a slight fever and, in my case, a lot of difficulty breathing. Why? Because we had not taken warm clothes, and in June, there, it is cool. Traveler’s tip: just because you go to Africa doesn’t mean you’re going to be hot. It is logical, but it happens. You take a sweatshirt and that’s it. And no. Not valid. Luckily we had medication, and they left Xavi a ventolin so he could breathe a little better. We took advantage of the day to rest and spend time with the children of the Adcam Vision School.

In the afternoon, at recess time, Raquel stayed with the girls and I stayed with the boys. We played soccer, what I could, and Raquel learned to dance like the girls did, and they sang in Maasai, English and Spanish.

Sixth day in Kenya

Our last day of Safari in Kenya was one of farewells. The plane left at 11:20 a.m. and we were still feeling sick. We spent the first hours of the day taking pictures of the camp and resting a bit. We had a long day of travel ahead of us. First a light aircraft to Nairobi. In Nairobi we would have a private cab waiting for us to go to Arusha (Tanzania) and there another car from the Tanzanian NGO would be waiting for us to take us to Hillside Retreat in Momella. Many hours in which we expected to be able to rest, even if it was inside a vehicle.

Everything went well and we arrived in Tanzania quite rested. In addition, Lukas from the Tanzania project was already waiting for us with open arms and dinner ready.

How many days do you need to do a safari in Kenya?

At Tip to Help we recommend a minimum of 4 days and a maximum of 6 days in Kenya. This way you have several days and you are sure to see as many animals in the wild as possible. Keep in mind that the area where our camp is located is a conservation area within the Maasai Mara and that the animals move freely through vast areas of the savannah. If you do only 1-2 days, you will enjoy it a lot, but you may not see any of the Big Five.

To save money it is important to plan your trip to Kenya in advance, so you will pay less on the plane and you can ensure availability in the best accommodations.

Best time to travel to Kenya

If you want to go on safari for the first time, it is best to avoid the rainy months. Although for the Maasai it is a blessing, for you as a traveler it can be a problem.

If it rains, the safari is more uncomfortable, since you cannot open the roof to take pictures, besides losing visibility due to the rain, the roads get muddy and the cars suffer more. As mentioned above, it rained for us one day in June (dry season), we had to cancel the plan to camp in front of the river, although it was still an adventure and we enjoyed it, if it had rained every day it would have been a problem.

The best months to go on safari in Kenya:

  • January and February: ✅ It is summer and dry season. So it is an ideal two months to go on safari in Kenya.
  • March: ⚠ The first rains may appear, although intermittent. It is still a good month to travel: there are fewer tourists and everything is more relaxed.
  • April and May: ❌ The rainiest months of the entire year. These are the least recommended months of the year. Although with climate change it doesn’t rain like it used to…
  • June: ✅ Winter begins and the “cold” in the evenings. It is an a priori dry month, but we were rained on one afternoon until the evening. Weather and rainfall are no longer predictable as they were a few years ago. June was a good month for us, as we encountered very few tourists and saw the animals in complete tranquility.
  • July – October: ✅ It is dry season and not so hot as it is winter and early spring. July and August are the months with more tourists, if you can travel in September and October is ideal as it is still dry season and the number of travelers is lower.
  • November: ⚠ November is the month of “Shorts Rains”, short rains that usually appear in the afternoon. It is low season and hotels have cheaper prices.
  • December: ✅ Summer and the dry season begins. At Christmas time it is full of travelers who want to go on safari in Kenya.

What to carry in the backpack during the Safari?

At this point I will give you the basic tips. Please note that depending on the time of year you travel, what to bring will vary slightly. We start with the basics:

– Camera

Bring the best camera you have and if you don’t, borrow one. An Iphone is not an option for a safari. I mean, if you have a last generation cell phone, you will use it, you will take videos and photos, but when you have to zoom, that is, most of the time, you will have a problem. A camera with a good zoom is a must. We, who are not photographers, bought the CANON Powershot 3gx. The Canon Powershot 3gx is a compact digital camera with very good zoom for a small camera, allowing you to get close to animals and take excellent pictures. It is easy to use, resistant and its price is about 600-800€ depending on the store. Almost all the photos in this post, like that sunset, are taken with the Canon.

watching the sunset is one of the activities to do during our safari in Kenya in the Masai Mara.

– Binoculars

Normally the driver carries one, but you will have to share them, so my recommendation is to have binoculars for every 2 people.

It will allow you to see the animals in detail and with much more tranquility.

– What to wear during the Safari

Clothing is one of the most complicated issues to manage during the safari. In the Masai Mara, at night and in the mornings, it is cold, especially if you travel in winter. On the other hand, during the day, when the sun shines, you can get sunstroke. So you will need several layers, a jacket for the evenings to protect you from the cold and wind, and a cap during the day to protect you from the sun.

I’m a big fan of the typical trekking pants that have a zipper and can be made short or long as you like. I always take a couple of them with me (the only ones I have). A pair of sweaters, a jacket, warm socks and good shoes or boots (trekking type recommended).

Finally, it is advisable to bring a good pair of pajamas in case you sleep in unheated tents. Even if you have blankets, it’s always best to keep warm 😊.

– Other complements or accessories that you will need on your trip to Kenya

  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Mosquito protection: Although in dry season there are almost none, and less in the safari areas, which are high above sea level.

If you want more info, we recommend you to read this post about what to take on safari.

Where is the best area to go on safari in Kenya?

This question is difficult to answer, and we cannot answer it because we do not know all the National Parks in Kenya. But Rosa, the head of the NGO maintains that the area of the conservation zone is better than the National Parks of Kenya for several reasons:

  • It is a much less touristy area, so you will be able to see the animals without being surrounded by 4×4 vehicles.
  • You can leave the roads and tracks marked by vehicles. A fact that you cannot do in any other National Park. Advantages? You can get close to the animals and the feeling of freedom is like nothing else.
  • It is an area where the Maasai live, so the contact with them and the positive impact that the safari generates for the Maasai community (as long as it is a solidarity safari) you can see it in first person.
  • Some internationally renowned guides, as mentioned above, explain that some animals are leaving the National Parks in search of areas with less tourism, such as conservation areas.

We can compare the National Parks of Tanzania with the area of the Masai Mara and the truth is that they are different and both places have their charm. It is difficult to answer this question because it depends on several factors. We have written a post in which we explain the differences and where it is better to do a safari, in Kenya or Tanzania .

Documentaries about Kenya

If you are still hesitating to do a safari in Kenya, or if you have your mind set on it, we recommend this documentary that you can watch on Netflix.

The light of stories

In episodes 1 and 2 of the second season, nature photographers Jonathan and Anglea Scott visit the Maasai Mara with our Maasai warriors. William, our guide (and yours if you travel with Trip to Help), was the guide they had during the shooting days. During the recording, Zacayo, Jonathan, William and other Masai from the community appear.

During the documentary, the photographers detail the lives of the animals and the Maasai who live in harmony within the reserve. Here is the trailer of the second season:
