Weekend Getaway Overview

This unique style of safari allows for a level of adventure that is simply not catered for by traditional companies. We give you the chance to go off and explore the wilds of Africa while maintaining a high level of security and back-up on the ground.

There are few experiences to match the thrill of waking up in your own private camp/room, with not a soul for miles around you, in some of the most sensational locations in the world.

Jua Kenya gives you this chance to experience one of Kenya`s greatest self drive Safari Tours. Enjoy!!

Day 1
Nairobi To Masai Mara

Departing from the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, we drive down the escarpment via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley. We arrive at Maasai Mara Game Reserve in time for lunch in the afternoon. We will check you into the luxurious lodge or basic permanent tents that are self-contained and fitted with feature beds and en suite bathroom areas. In the evening 4pm we take our first thrilling game drive in the Masai Mara game reserve, one of East Africa’s top safari destinations. 6pm return to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay. In the night you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as they communicate with each other in the darkness – more than enough reason to visit. An evening sundowners cocktail as you view the sun go down is a good way to end the day at an extra cost.

Return in the evening for Dinner and overnight at the Camp/ Lodge.

Day 2
Full Day Game Drive in Masai Mara Game Reserve

Enjoy full day game drives in the park in the morning and also in the afternoon. You will have a chance to see all the Big Five Wild Animals which include Lions, Buffaloes, Leopards, Rhino's and Elephants. You also have a chance to see other wild game like Zebra, Hyena, Cheetahs, Warthog, Topi, hartebeest, Eland. Dinner and overnight stay at our camp/lodge.

Early morning Masai Mara hot air balloon safari can be arranged at extra cost.

Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common.The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October to December. There is nothing thrilling like a bush dinner to end such an adventurous day at an extra cost.

Return in the evening for Dinner and overnight at the Camp/ Lodge.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Great Wildebeest Migration?

The Great Wildebeest Migration is now one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is the largest animal migration in the world. Every year, more than 2 million animals (Wildebeest, Zebra, and Gazelle) migrate in a clockwise direction across the ecosystems of the Serengeti (Tanzania) and the Masai Mara (Kenya). On the way, they have to cross crocodile-infested rivers, are hunted by predators, and face natural disasters such as droughts and flooding in a daily struggle for survival.

When is the best time to witness the Seventh Wonder of the World?

The first few months of the year offer exceptional predator encounters in the Serengeti as this is the calving season for the wildebeest and newborns make for an easy kill. By July, the herds are heading into the central Serengeti where the wildebeest make their first river crossing, and take their chances against the waiting (and hungry) crocodiles. In August, the herds cross over into Kenya’s Masai Mara and by September, the big herds have fragmented into smaller groups. The last few months of the year bring the short rains, causing the Wildebeest to move back into the Serengeti where the animals brace themselves for the next calving season and predator attacks.

What should I carry with me for the trip?

Passport/ ID, Camera, Hat, sunglasses, torch, clothes. Residents / citizens MUST show their ID/passports or Residency cards or else will be charged as non residents. ALL documents must be valid
