Also, enjoy sundowners and bush walks with Maasai guides in the unspoiled Ol Kinyei, Naboisho, and Olare Motorogi Conservancy areas, escaping the crowds.

    Wildebeest Great Migration Explained

    Please note that the Wildebeest Great Migration is seasonal. As a natural wildlife phenomenon, it is fluid and unpredictable. For this reason, seeing the Great Migration cannot be guaranteed.

    The wildebeest and other wild herbivores migrate between Masai Mara in Kenya and Serengeti in Tanzania. These herds move in a massive circular route covering some 1200 miles (1931km). It is a continuous movement of wildlife that can be seen in different areas at different times of the year.

    During certain phases of this annual trek the animals disperse or slow down, whilst at other times the migration picks up speed, with the herds becoming larger and denser. Not only does the Wildebeest Great Migration vary from place to place and season to season but the movement of these large wildlife herds varies from year to year.


      This Masai Mara Safari in Kenya begins at the Wilson Airport in Nairobi. Boarding a scheduled flight at 10h00 you fly to the Ol Seki Naboisho Airstrip near Masai Mara National Reserve in southwest Kenya. Touching down at the airstrip, at about 11h00, you are collected by a driver from the safari camp.

      We head into the Ol Kinyei Conservancy, game viewing en route to the private tented camp. Settle in and have lunch, before we embark on a sunset game drive in the private reserve. Along the way, we stop at a scenic spot to watch the sunset and enjoy sundowners in the bush. Then we drive back to the camp in our 4x4 vehicle for dinner and a relaxed evening around the campfire.

      > Dinner and overnight at the safari camp in Ol Kinyei Conservancy.

      Today we explore the Ol Kinyei and Naboisho Conservancy areas of the Masai Mara ecosystem. These private reserves are closed to the public, ensuring a crowd-free game viewing experience. We explore the wilderness in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles shared between guests staying at the camp. The expert guides search out wildlife and help you to spot them in the bush, sharing their knowledge of local flora and fauna as you go.

      At the end of day two of our Masai Mara Safari, we sit back around the campfire and enjoy being close to nature.

      > Full board accommodation at Ol Kinyei Conservancy camp.

      Day three of our safari in Kenya begins with breakfast before we set off for our next camp in Olare Motorogi Conservancy. Our transfer drive takes us through the private Ol Kinyei and Naboisho Conservancies, allowing us to sight wildlife and enjoy the scenery en route to Olare Motorogi.

      We arrive at the exclusive camp in time for lunch and a rest before taking an afternoon game drive in Olare Motorogi Conservancy. Big cats (lion, cheetah, and leopard) are commonly sighted in this private wildlife conservancy, along with many other big mammals. We should encounter few, if any, other safari vehicles out in the unspoiled Olare Motorogi Conservancy, bordering on Masai Mara.

      We stop in the bush while out on the 4x4 game drive to enjoy sundowners and watch a spectacular sunset over the African wilderness. Then we return to our camp along the Ntiakatiak River, for dinner and chill-out time under the stars.

      > Overnight at Olare Motorogi Conservancy safari camp.

      On day four we explore the legendary Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya in our open-sided 4x4 safari vehicle. Visiting the world-famous Masai Mara Game Reserve we cross the rolling hills and open plains, sighting all kinds of animals, including herds of grazers and lazing big cats.

      We take a picnic along with us, stopping for lunch in Masai Mara Reserve. Later we return to camp having experienced one of the best national parks on the continent. Back at camp we tuck into a tasty dinner and enjoy a drink beside the campfire.

      > Dinner and overnight at the safari camp in Olare Motorogi Conservancy.

      The final morning of our Masai Mara Safari begins with a guided bush walk or a game drive in the exclusive Olare Motorogi Conservancy. The game walks are conducted by Maasai guides, offering great insight into the local ecosystems and culture.

      After our 4x4 game drive or bush walk in the private reserve, we make our way back to camp for a delicious breakfast. Then we pack up and drive to the Olare Orok Airstrip, where we catch our flight from Masai Mara back to Nairobi. The scheduled flight departs at 11h00, landing at the Wilson Airport in Nairobi at about 12h15.

      > Our outstanding fly-in Masai Mara Safari in Kenya finishes upon arrival in Nairobi.

      How many days do you need for Masai Mara safari?


      Days to stay in Masai Mara on a budget friendly holidayIf you are on a tight budget, plan to spend at least 5 days and 3 nights in the Mara. The two game drives that you will have on just one day of touring will give you a nice experience of the beauty of Masai Mara.

        What is the closest airport to Masai Mara safari?


        Jomo Kenyatta International Airport
        The nearest international airport is Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), in Nairobi, and lots of people fly into the city when visiting Masai Mara. There are also many airstrips surrounding the reserve, but where you fly into will depend on where you are staying during your safari.

          Which month is best for Masai Mara safari?

          The long cool-dry season from July to October is considered by most to be the best time of year to visit Masai Mara but also costliest season too. The absence of rain means that the flora is less dense, so animals are easier to observe. Additionally, insect levels, including mosquitoes, are lower during the dry season.

            Why is Masai Mara so expensive?

            Prices tend to be higher during the Peak season which is normally when the Great wildebeest migration happens as this attracts large numbers of visitors to Masai Mara making it more expensive to secure rooms due to the high demand. The Peak season runs from July to October.

              Is it better to go to Masai Mara or Serengeti in October?

              The best time to see the Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara is from about August to October. August is generally considered the best time to witness the dramatic river crossings from the Serengeti into the Mara, where they’ll graze until the short rains in November propel them to head back into the Serengeti.

                How much is a night at Masai Mara?

                Masai Mara Tier Three Camps And Lodges. The Masai Mara Safari Tier 3 (Value Experience) rooming & safari activity rate in Kenya starts from US $750 to US $1000 per person/night sharing on average with the very few topping to around $1250 a night for an upgraded rooming and private safari experience.

                  How do I pay my Masai Mara park fee?

                  How to Pay / Mode of Payment : Payment in Cash US Dollars or Kenya Shillings is accepted at the entry gates except if you are paying for entry to the western side of the reserve, namely Mara Triangle – Mara Conservancy area, where only cashless payment is accepted ( either Visa / Mastercard or Mpesa Mobile Money).
