Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration 3 Days Camping Safari | Maasai Mara Campsite Tour
3 Days Masai Mara wildebeest migration camping safari is a 2 nights budget tour to Masai Mara game reserve to see the great wildebeest migration and the big five animals in the wild. The three day Masai Mara low cost campsite safari is a shared joining in safari that departs Nairobi early and returns in the afternoon of the third day.
Masai Mara is the most popular national park in Africa. This small 1510 sq km national park is home to more than 3 million animals and the greatest numbers of big cat predators like lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas. The park for example has lion prides with 30-40 members that you will see a pride every few kilometers of game driving. The Masai Mara is also the seventh wonder of the world due to its annual wildebeest migration which takes place every year.
Over 2 million wildebeests, zebras and gazelles cross 3,000 km of plains, forests and rivers across 2 countries to reach fresh grass. The wildebeest migration is the most dramatic and captivating event in a visit to Masai Mara.
The theater of all this drama is at the Mara river crossing stampede where you watch thousands upon thousands of wildebeests crushing onto each other trying to cross the over flowing Mara river with its raging currents and rampaging Nile crocodiles. This is the ultimate reason to choose the best time to go for Masai Mara wildebeest migration budget safari tour.
Day 1: Nairobi to Masai Mara Game Reserve
Our driver will pick you up and we will drive north and into the Great Rift Valley where we stop for a view of the valley below. We will be shown the scar that was left behind when the tectonic forces unsuccessfully tried to split Africa in two. We will then cross the rift valley and ascend the western escarpment into the Masai mara plains.
Our camp attendant will welcome you to the budget camp and thereafter have a lunch. We enjoy a small siesta and depart for an evening game drive at 1600 hrs. This game drive will take us till dusk when we return to our budget Masai Mara migration camp for dinner and overnight.
Day 2: Masai Mara Full Day Game Drive
On our second day, we will rise up early and have breakfast. We then depart the camp with picnic lunch boxes for a full day game drive and visit to the mara river. Our aim today is to see the great mara river wildebeest crossing stampede.
We will drive to the river and take strategic positions watch the tens of thousands of wildebeest cross the murderous raging river against the odds of marauding Nile crocodiles, ambush from leopards, lions and cheetahs and the rough waters.
We will take as many pictures of this lifetime drama and watch sadly, as many wildebeests drown, get eaten by crocodiles and hunted by the big cats but even in greater numbers of hundreds of thousands of successful river crosses.
Full day watching the river crossing and later enjoy a picnic lunch and a game drive en route back to the Masai Mara migration budget tented camp for dinner and overnight.
Day 3: Masai Mara Game Reserve to Nairobi
On this morning we will wake up early to go and search for those animals that may have alluded us in our three days here. We will comb the brush and the plains for leopards, cheetahs and rhinos till we find them. Later we will return to our camp for breakfast having successfully seen and taken photos of the BIG FIVE animals in Masai mara.
