MASAI MIGRATION - Comfort
4 Nights in the marvellous Masai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park. The image of acacia trees on an endless grass plain epitomises Africa for many, and then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara is the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. But that is not where the game viewing ends; large prides of lions, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles and eland to mention but a few. Aside from traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains is a marvellous experience!
Day 1 to 4 - Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Arrive Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Kenya – Transfer in Light Aircraft via Wilson Airport to Kichwa Airstrip.
Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp and Bateleur Camp are situated in the Kichwa Tembo private concession, which neighbours the Masai Mara. Meaning ‘head of the elephant’ in KiSwahili, Kichwa Tembo consists of private land leased from Maasai landlords and situated in the remote western Mara, almost exclusively explored by fly-in guests. In addition to the excellent year-round concentration of wildlife, Kichwa Tembo lies directly in the path of Africa’s spectacular Great Migration. Steeped in the aura of classical safari, the recently refurbished &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp boasts 12 luxury tents and 28 superior tents, all of which give out onto magnificent views over the open grasslands or the shady forest surrounding the Sabaringo River. The superior tents feature beautiful Maasai-inspired interiors that showcase a simple and contemporary use of local materials. Oversized beds are perfectly positioned to make the most of the views, while stained cypress wood furniture combine with tribal decorative elements. The generously sized swimming pool is set among the trees and surrounded by lush lawns and spectacular views. Opening up onto incredible Masai Mara views, the guest areas feature cosy split-level spaces decorates in a palette of stone and taupe. Celebrating the romance and nostalgia of the Mara, a double-storey bar and lounge area feature oversized windows with spectacular panoramas. The split-level dining area has been designed around an interactive kitchen and vegetable garden, making food an integral part of the safari experience..
