Nairobi to Maasai Mara
On arrival in Nairobi you’ll waste no time in heading straight out on safari. Transfer to the domestic airport (Wilson airport) and board a light aircraft for your flight to the Musiara airstrip in the Maasai Mara. This exceptionally wildlife-rich corner of the Mara is the territory of the BBC’s ‘Big Cat Diary’ and home to the authentic Governors’ camps. Nestled in the forest by the Mara River banks, Governors’ Main Camp’s setting was once reserved exclusively for Kenya’s colonial governors. Spend an unforgettable day on game drives in Masai mara before heading back to camp for dinner and overnight. The classic safari tents all have double or twin beds and an en-suite bathroom area divided by a canvas wall, complete with a hot shower. Each tent also has electric lamps, charge points for cameras and phones, and a deck for wildlife viewing. Some lie secluded along the riverbank, while others sit out in the open with views of the rolling plains. For families, there are family tents sleeping two adults and two children.
