Depart for Masai Mara National Reserve, which is also known as the “Jewell of Kenya”. On your way to Maasai Mara National Reserve, you will enjoy different array of views which are just priceless. The drive passes via the great rift escarpment where a brief stopover will be made for photography and then continue driving. The view is just out of this world!

A spectacle worth seeing is the annual migration of millions of wildebeests, zebra, and gazelles from the Serengeti plains across the Tanzania border and Mara River to reach Maasai Mara grazing fields. The dramatic crossing of the river and the preying on the migrants by predators can be viewed early June to August with a return journey back in October/November.
