Here, in this world-renowned wildlife reserve, you can witness the fascination Great Migration in all its splendor (where millions of wildebeest and zebra cross the Mara River in search of grazing). Each month of the year showcases a different “event'” of the migration, but no matter when you visit, you have a high chance of seeing predators like cheetahs, lions, leopards, and unique antelope, as well as hippos, crocodiles and other exciting, lesser-known creatures! Enjoy your first afternoon game drive in the Mara, followed by a sunset drink in the bush and an evening overlooking the glorious grassy plain that lies in front of your lodge.
DAY 5+6 | MASAI MARA RESERVE BLD
Each morning you’ll set off early to search for the Mara’s exciting and iconic inhabitants. Enjoy a sunrise coffee in the “bush” and return to camp for breakfast. Each day is spent at leisure. Look for bird species around the camp, have a lunchtime nap, or lookout for animals visiting the plains in front of the camp. Each day you will enjoy two safari activities of your choice, or opt for an extra activity like hot-air ballooning over the Masai Mara! At night, sip on a sundowner drink while on your game drive and return to camp for a delicious dinner on the outdoor deck, as you listen to Africa’s nighttime sounds.
DAY 7 | MASAI MARA RESERVE – DIANI BEACH BLD
Enjoy the last game drive of your trip and fingers crossed you see all the animals you haven’t yet seen! Pack up and head to the airstrip for your light-aircraft flight to the Kenyan coast.

DAY 8+9 | DIANI BEACH BLD
The next two days are yours to fill as you please. You can decide how busy you want to be at Diani.

Some activities are an extra cost. Enjoy evening cocktails at the hotel bar while having all your meals included means you don’t have to worry about making dinner plans!
