A Masai family tend to their cattle in East Africa
Nairobi - Masai Mara. Leaving the hustle and bustle of Nairobi we climb the escarpment to our first stop, a viewpoint overlooking a section of the spectacular Great Rift Valley. Descending into the Rift Valley, we enter Masai land where these habitual pastoralists are often seen tending their cattle from the side of the road. The main section of road between Nairobi and the Reserve is in a very poor state, so be prepared for a rough ride! We pass through the town of Narok and continue our drive possibly getting a glimpse of some wildlife along the way. We arrive at our campsite, Acacia Camp in the late afternoon. Acacia Camp looks on to the Meguarra hills and the stream that meanders by on the bottom end forms a natural border to the Masai Mara National Reserve. Overnight - Masai Mara N.P. (D)

Day 4: Nairobi
Masai Mara - Nairobi. Heading out of the Masai Mara we travel back into the surrounding Masai Land area where we may still catch a glimpse of the game that has migrated into this region. The Masai Mara National Reserve is unfenced and so it’s common to see some wildlife migrating through this ‘buffer’ zone. Departing in the morning, we reach Nairobi in the late afternoon. Here we’ll part ways after having had a brief encounter with amazing Africa. (B)
