DAY-TO-DAY ITINERARY

DAY 1

JULIA'S RIVER CAMP - MASAI MARA

Breakfast at Sweetwaters Camp will be waiting for you following a good night's rest after completing the For Rangers Ultra-Marathon. After breakfast, you will be collected by a driver and private vehicle and transferred to the nearby town of Nanyuki for a scheduled flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival, you will be met at the airstrip by a guide and vehicle and proceed to Julia's River Camp, enjoying a game drive along the way. This afternoon there will the opportunity to enjoy your first drive into the Masai Mara National Reserve in search of big cats and enormous herds!

DAY 2 & 3

JULIA'S RIVER CAMP - MASAI MARA

Day 2 & 3 are yours to spend at leisure with daily game drives included in your stay. Throughout September hundreds-of-thousands of wildebeest, zebra and topi enter the Masai Mara National Reserve from the Serengeti in search of fresh pasture. Such a huge concentration of grazers is not just incredible to see first-hand but also an irresistible opportunity for hungry predators. The result is some of Africa's most renowned game viewing with action on offer every day!

Our suggestion: Make the most of being amongst one of nature's greatest spectacles with moring and afternoon game drives. During these parts of the day, you are most likely to see big cats and other predators. You may also wish to arrange a hot air balloon safari (not included) with us and we advise pre-booking this activity to avoid disappointment. 

DAY 4

Depart

The morning of your departure you will have breakfast before a game drive en route to the nearby airstrip. A flight to Nairobi Wilson Airport is included (journey time approx. 1hr). In Nairobi, you will be met by a driver and transferred to the international airport. For later international flights a day-room at a hotel or afternoon visit to a restaurant can be arranged (not included).

DAY 1,2 & 3

JULIA'S RIVER CAMP

Located on the banks of the Talek River, Julia’s River Camp boasts quick access to the open grassy savannahs of the world-famous Masai Mara. There are 28 tents in total at the camp and all sit on wooden platforms with excellent views overlooking the river.

 

Game-viewing can be enjoyed even from camp with lion, buffalo, elephants, leopard and more often spotted in the area.
