In my opinion, the ideal length of stay would be 4-5 days. With this amount of time, you can truly explore the area and appreciate its natural beauty while also enjoying all the luxuries provided by your camp. A longer stay may bring greater rewards but there is also something to be said for making sure that your safari experience does not become too monotonous and exhausting.

How much are luxury safari packages in the Mara?

The price of a luxury safari package in the Masai Mara depends on several factors, such as the duration and type of accommodation you choose. A 3 night stay at a high-end camp can cost upwards of $2,000 per person, while a 5-night stay could be up to double that. Other costs may include activities and game drives which can add up quickly, so make sure to do your research and compare different packages before booking. Ultimately, when it comes to luxury safaris, you get what you pay for!

How to pick the best times of year for a Masai Mara Safari?

The best time to visit the Masai Mara for a luxury safari experience is between June and October. During these months, the great wildebeest migration is at its peak, meaning you can witness this amazing natural phenomenon in action. This is also when predators are most active in the area, so if you’re looking to spot big game animals like lions, leopards and cheetahs then this is the best time for you! If your budget allows, aim for a stay during the dry season (July-October) as this is when the game viewing is at its best.

If you want to take a luxury safari in the Mara without breaking the bank, consider going during low season from March to May when the rates are up to 40% lower. Although you won’t be able to witness the wildebeest migration, you can still enjoy excellent game viewing and have an amazing experience in the wild.
