Maasai Mara & Naivasha short tour is an ideal combination of activity outside the confines of a safari vehicle and game drives in Kenya’s premier national park – the Maasai Mara. Accommodation is based on budget cottages and tented camps though upgrades to more superior properties can be arranged as well.

Tour Details

Maasai Mara tour starts with a visit to Hells Gate national park; named for the intense geothermal activity within its boundaries, the Park is a remarkable quarter of the Great Rift Valley. Spectacular scenery including the towering cliffs, water-gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub clad volcanoes and belching plumes of geothermal steam make it one of the most atmospheric Parks in Africa.

The rest of the tour is spent on game drives in the Maasai Mara where game viewing is rewarding all year round.
