CAANS Safari – Maasai Mara

The Greatest Show on Earth

By the month of June a gentle wind ripples through the tall red oat grass, and the only animals easily visible are the slow moving elephants and giraffes, or a lone topi standing on an abandoned termite mound. A stillness sits across the savannah and the lions of the Mara lie in the shade of the acacias, waiting in anticipation. One late morning, small specks rise up through the bushes by Sand River and within minutes become clouds of dust. A herd of a few hundred wildebeest swarms its way along and then down the dusty river bank. Some of the herd settles for a few sips of water before the throng returns and takes the thirsty back to the top of the river bank. The migration has arrived. Within a couple of days many herds of thousands of wildebeest are trampling their way through the long grass, snaking their way across to Look-Out Hill and then down to the Mara River.

Many visitors only want to see the river crossings but the true spectacle of the migration is 1,245,000 wildebeest, 200,000 Burchell's zebra, 18,000 eland and 500,000 Thomson's Gazelle filling the entire stretch of landscape. The shifting columns of the herds as they traverse the valleys and the hills can only be watched in awe. There is nothing else like this on earth.

Our representative will recive you at your hotel in Nairobi. You will then be transfered to the Domestic Airport - Wilson Airport (Approx. 30 Min Drive). They will brief you on your safari and are at your disposal to answer any questions you may have.
Once you have checked in, you can have lunch at Dormans Restaurant as you wait for your flight to Maasai Mara (Approx. 40 Min flight time). Dormans became Kenya’s first coffee roaster in 1950. Today they continue to grow coffee, produce, roast and distribute Africa’s most exceptional coffees.
Take off at 1400Hrs and enjoy the views of our beautiful Kenya from up above.

After lunch, you will head out with a team of rangers to participate in helping to gather vital research information needed to monitor the collared lions. In the event that the collared lions are inaccessible, other lion sightings are reported and the same identifying features such as whisker spots, ear tears and nose spotting are recorded. It is a great way to learn about lions and all of the information gathered is passed on to the Ol Pejeta Ecological Monitoring Department. It's thrilling.

(this is subject to availability at time of booking)
