theMara River - A place where
wildlife meets conflict:
in its millions.

The migration is a constant dynamic. But at one point during the cycle, a major obstacle stands in the way of the momentum. At first it causes a stutter and a pause, but then the surge comes, and millions of animals cross the Mara River in one of the most spectacular wildlife scenes on earth!

This webpage offers you a glimpse of the safari. For the full details of the entire safari indicating what is included and excluded, number of guests and the logistics, please download the full brochure below.

We depart for the Masai Mara at 10am on a scheduled flight and we touchdown at Ol-Kiombo Airstrip after a short 1-hour flight.

You will be staying in a classic East African style safari camp consisting of canvas tents, staffed by local Maasai. 123

Day 2-8, Entim Private Camp, Kenya.

You will have en-suite bathrooms with flush loos, flowing water and hot showers. While traditional, the camp is comfortable with large beds and private verandah’s. That afternoon we will enter the reserve for the first time and sample one of Africa’s greatest ecosystems.

Day 8 - Nairobi, Kenya

After a last morning game drive, we return to camp for a hearty brunch before departing to the airstrip at 12h00 where we return to Nairobi. A transfer back to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport/your hotel concludes the safari. Most of the international flights depart in the early evening and this fits with most connections. This is unfortunately the end of the tour and another special package from C4 Photo Safaris.
