Crossings & Crocodiles,

Maasai Mara, Kenya

Seasons: July to October

Day 1: Nairobi
An Origins driver will meet you at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and transfer you to a Nairobi hotel.
1 overnight Nairobi Serena Hotel

Days 2 - 6: Lower Maasai Mara

You meet your Professional Safari Guide for a briefing and drive for 4-5 hours to reach the Maasai Mara National Reserve, descending the Rift escarpment just north of Nairobi and crossing the flat valley floor before we ascend to the Mara plateau.

Your base is the Serena Lodge in the heart of the lower Mara.   

We spend the next four days following the herds, capturing the drama as it unfolds throughout the day. Early starts and evening drives back after full days roving the plains with provisions on board to ensure uninterrupted access to the greatest wildlife spectacle of them all.

5 overnights Mara Serena Lodge

Days 7 - 11: Upper Maasai Mara
As early as possible you breakfast and check out and drive across the plains with a picnic lunch, photographing and filming en route towards our next base: a tented camp in the upper Mara, overlooking the Talek River.  

Your wilderness rhythm is uninterrupted, the different habitats and species are unveiled as you spend your days driving, watching and capturing on film the dramas as they unfold.  The key is flexibility: your guide will know where to look, at which time of day for specific behavioural patterns and wildlife rituals. .

You arrive at the Mara Intrepids Camp at the end of the afternoon for welcome cold drinks and hot showers and time to relax around the campfire or maybe a quick dip in the pool before sundowners at the bar.

5 overnights Mara Intrepids Camp

Day 12: Depart

After breakfast you drive across the savannah on a last excursion, stopping for a picnic lunch at mid-day. You reach Nairobi mid-afternoon with time to freshen up and prepare for the international flight home.
