    Amboseli National Park and Maasai Mara Safari – 8 days

    Amboseli National Park and Maasai Mara Safari – 8 days

    2.795
    • Adult

    8 days of safari tour in Amboseli and the Maasai Mara allows us to see two of the most important parks and conservation areas of the country. Amboseli National Park is very close to the Tanzanian border and has beautiful views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. During the 8-day safari in Amboseli and the Masai Mara we will be able to see elephants, lions, buffaloes, giraffes and many other animals in the wild.

     

    Safari in the Maasai Mara

     

    Our guide will pick us up in Nairobi and take us to the Masai Mara, where we will be met by William and the rest of the Masai guides from the lodge. For the first few days we will be staying at the Maasai community lodge in the Lemek Conservancy within the Masai Mara. This accommodation, owned by the NGO with which we collaborate, has glamping tents with private bathrooms. During the first few days, William and his Maasai guides will take us on safari in the Maasai Mara where we will see the first animals in the wild. We will do activities that are not done in a traditional or tourist safari such as camping in the Mara River or a meal in the middle of the savannah. These are activities that can only be done on a safari like this one, since the Maasai live in this area and have permission to do activities that other tour operators cannot.

    We will also visit the social projects that William’s NGO has, such as the school or the village of Maasai women who live very close to our lodging.

    Amboseli Safari Tour

     

    The Amboseli safari is our second stop on our 8-day Kenya safari. We will take a 4×4 vehicle and head towards Amboseli National Park. We will arrive at sunset, just in time to have dinner and go to bed to rest. During the next day we will have a full day safari in Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is a park famous for its views of Kilimanjaro and for its giant tusked elephants. In addition to elephants, on our safari in Amboseli we will be able to see lions, cheetahs, hyenas, and some of the more than 370 species of birds that inhabit the park. All this makes Amboseli one of the most famous national parks in Kenya.

    Accommodation during the 8 days of safari in Amboseli & Masai Mara in Kenya.

     

    During the 8 days of safari in Amboseli and the Masai Mara we will combine two different accommodations. The first, in the Masai Mara, owned by an NGO and managed by Maasai, allocates all profits to the NGO’s social projects such as the school, where more than 300 children receive free education, or the women’s village, which the project helps with empowerment and micro-financing programs. We will sleep in typical safari tents, glamping type with bed and private bathroom. As we have mentioned before, on our safari in the Masai Mara we will spend a night camping near the Mara River, an unforgettable experience that we will always remember.

    During the safari tour in Amboseli National Park we will be able to choose between two types of accommodation. The first and most economical one belongs to a local community that also dedicates the profits to the education of the community’s children. If, on the other hand, we prefer a more luxurious accommodation, we will sleep in a lodge located near the park with more amenities and luxuries, such as a swimming pool.

    Day 1

    Leaving Nairobi for the Masai Mara

    This Safari in Amboseli and Masai Mara starts in Nairobi, where one of our drivers will pick you up in Nairobi to cross the Great Rift Valley on the way to the Masai Mara. The drive takes 5 hours with photo stops at the viewpoint in the valley. If we have left Nairobi early in the morning, we will have time to get to our lodge and have lunch and then in the afternoon we will go on our first safari. On our first safari we will be able to see one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, in the middle of the African savannah and surrounded by animals. We will have a beer and enjoy the moment.

      Day 2

      Second day on Safari in the Maasai Mara

      On our second day of safari in the Maasai Mara, in the morning we will go to see one of the NGO's projects in the Maasai community: the women's village. These are women who have been expelled from their families for various reasons. The NGO gives them and their children a place to live, and gives them tools so that they can make a living from handicrafts and other projects. During the visit we will see how they live, and we will be able to buy Masai handicrafts made by the women themselves. NOTE: The money from each handicraft sold goes entirely to each woman and the price is not negotiated. This point is important because most of the time, both in Kenya and Tanzania, when you visit a place like this, the money ends up being divided among several people, even if they say that it goes to the women, and they receive very little or nothing. Here, each handicraft sold goes solely and exclusively to the woman who sells it. In the afternoon we will visit the Rhinoceros Sanctuary, which is threatened by poachers and is in serious danger of extinction. For this reason, they are guarded by rangers 24 hours a day.

        Day 3

        Maasai Mara Safari

        Today is a safari day in the Maasai Mara. We will get up, get into the 4x4 and go with the Maasai to show us their territory and the animals that inhabit it. We will see lions, giraffes, elephants, cheetahs, hyenas, zebras, wildebeest and more. It is important to know that this area is a Conservation area within the Masai Mara, but outside the National Reserve. There are even more animals here than in the reserve, as there is much less tourism, and the animals are much calmer. In addition, the community managing this area receives income for every traveller who goes on safari here, so your experience contributes to the local community. We will stop for lunch at the best restaurant in the world: under a tree and overlooking the vastness, we will have our table prepared by our cooks. We will be served a delicious lunch and have the splendour of the Masai Mara before us. After the lunch, we will continue our game drive in the Masai Mara.

          Day 4

          Camp in the Mara river

          On our fourth day of safari in the Maasai Mara we will do one of the highlights of the entire safari. We will camp at the Mara River. But first, in the morning, we will be visiting the NGO school next to our accommodation and we will take the opportunity to see the impact of Trip to Help's regenerative tourism in Kenya. After lunch, we will go on safari to the Mara River. This area is our guide's favourite. There we will see how the hippos come out of the water in order and one after the other, when the sun starts to go down. We will have a beer while enjoying a sunset like no other. Then we will go for dinner at a unique place where the rest of the Maasai will be waiting for us along with the tents and a bonfire. We will have dinner and sleep in the middle of nature, accompanied by the best Masai warriors.

            Day 5

            Walking Safari in the Lemek Conservancy Area

            We wake up in the middle of the Maasai Mara, have breakfast and William will guide us along the river on foot for a walk in the middle of the savannah. Then we will drive back to our camp where we will have lunch and rest after a very intense few hours. In the afternoon, we will have free time to read, rest or play with the school children, when they go out for recess, or finish their classes.

              Day 6

              On the way to Amboseli National Park

              Today we will be on our way out of the Maasai Mara to Amboseli National Park. We will arrive for dinner, sleep and get ready for the Amboseli safari tour.

                Day 7

                Safari in Amboseli National Park

                Today we will have the whole day for a spectacular safari in Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is a park bordering Tanzania, home to the famous giant tusker elephants and hundreds of birds. We will see its permanent marshes where there is the highest concentration of animals. The elephants love to play in this muddy area, but we will also see groups of hippos, lions, zebras, giraffes, hyenas, etc.

                  Day 8

                  Morning Safari in Amboseli and going back to Nairobi

                  On our last day of safari in Amboseli and the Maasai Mara, we will head directly to Nairobi where our driver will drop us off at the designated point. If your flight leaves in the evening and you would like to take advantage of the morning to do a safari inside Amboseli National Park, this is possible, but you will have to pay the entrance fee to the park again (75USD per person).
