Overview

Kenya’s crown jewel, with the Big 5 in abundance. Wildebeest, zebras, impalas, elephants, Masai giraffes and several species of gazelle all call the Mara home. This vast concentration of game accounts for high predator numbers, including cheetahs, leopards and the highest lion densities in the world.

 

Mara is the perfect destination for those who want to have the complete safari experience in a short time frame.

 

Spend 4 days of marvelling bliss.

 

There shall be a game viewing drive on the afternoon of day 1 after arrival at Masai Mara and a final game drive on the morning of day 4 before you leave Masai Mara. Day 2 shall be spent on Full Day Extravaganza game viewing drives with a visit to a local Masai village. Day 3 will be the Hot Air Balloon extravaganza and an optional full day game viewing drive.

 

Perhaps you wish to immerse yourself in the bush while sleeping under canvas or prefer to retire in a contemporary lodge with modern amenities abound. Whatever your preference and budget, Evacay Africa offers the guidance and insight you need to find your perfect Kenya trip accommodation.

 

A great mix of Evacay Africa’s best game-viewing destinations are carefully curated in a specially-adapted 6 seater 4X4 Land Cruiser with pop-up roofs so that our guests can stand up when viewing wildlife and can take photographs.

 

A lower-priced option, instead of the 4X4 Land Cruiser, is to go on a road safari in a 4×4 Safari Mini Van with pop-up roof. These take 6 passengers in 3 rows so each has a window seat.

 

On this 4 days safari, you are always in the safe hands of a professional guide to drive you between destinations, conducting game drives in the wildlife reserves as well as introducing you to the cultural side of the landscape.

 

Evacay Africa safari guides are chosen for their high levels of skill and customer service. All are accredited by the KPSGA (Kenya Professional Safari Guide Association).

Apart from the famous “Big 5”, the Masai Mara is known for another natural spectacle, The Great Migration. It is an annual activity which includes the migration of over one million wildebeest, zebra, gazelle etc from the Serengeti in Northern Tanzania to Kenya, crossing over the Mara River in search of fresh green feeding pastures. Arrive in time for lunch and later go on an afternoon game drive towards the Mara River with hoping to see a dramatic river crossing. Overnight at your Luxury tented camp or lodge of choice.
