4-Day Masai Mara Safari from Nairobi for a Holistic Safari

4-Day Masai Mara Safari Package:

Our 4-day safari package to Masai Mara National Reserve is upgraded to either 1,2 or 3-day safari to this vast Reserve that happens to be our favorite. Unlike the 1 to 3-day safari to Masai Mara, this 4-day tour allows you more time in the Reserve and we have made sure to ensure that we take you to more destinations in the Reserve or the surrounding conservancies to give you a more holistic experience of the Mara jungle.

In this 4-day package, we aim to make it more memorable and worth the extra day or two that typical safari packages cannot provide. Our expert guides will be with you throughout the stay to provide insight and answer questions.
