The Maasai Mara, together with Tanzania's Serengeti form Africa's most famous wildlife park - the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Maasai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration, traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost an essential experience.
On arrival, our airport representative will meet you, together with your driver-guide. Thereafter, you will depart for Maasai Mara Game Reserve, and arrive in time for lunch at the camp. You will have a short rest, before embarking on your late afternoon game drive.
Accommodation: Dinner and Overnight-stay at Ilkeliani Camp.
Nestled in a river glade at the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the area is a favourite for elephants coming to drink from the Talek River. The camp has been designed to combine the old traditional safari style with a modern and fresh feel. Ilkeliani Camp offers only 17 tents, with each commanding views of the plains and the wildlife action throughout the day. It is a permanent camp, designed along eco-friendly principles. The ethos is to leave a minimum ecological footprint on nature.
Each well-equipped tent comprises a stylish-look, inclusive of an en-suite bathroom. The tents sit independently, under a cluster of shady indigenous trees, which gives you a feeling of actually being in the wilderness, albeit within a safe vicinity. The interiors are spacious and comfortable, and feature a front verandah, with a day-bed and canvas safari chairs. Home cooked meals, combined with personal service - contribute to an unforgettable safari experience.
