1.      View Scenic Rift Valley on Eastern Escarpment Enroute to Mara 2 Day from Airport Safari

The Great Rift Valley is the awesome sight when you are driving down to Masai Mara. The great rift is the scar that remained when tectonic forces tried unsuccessfully, to tear Africa into two. It is a wide depression which on its floor contains volcanic mountains, fissures, geysers and hot springs. You will make a scheduled stop at the Great Rift Valley view point only 1hr from Nairobi to view this geographical marvel. Mt Longonot towers right inside the rift valley and it’s still active to date.

2.      Cross the Rift Valley Floor with Captivating Views of Mt Longonot

You will drive across one of the most scenic valley floor while Mt Longonot towers above you on the rift and Mt Suswa some distance to the left. The rift valley crossing is amazing as you drop down on the eastern escarpment and drive straight across the valley. Later you will climb up onto the green western escarpment dotted with amazingly beautiful wheat fields.

3.      Track Wildlife and Big Five Animals in Your Game Drive In Masai Mara 2 Day Safari

On arrival to Masai Mara, you will do your first game drive that evening to see the big game. Look for the big five animals like lions, leopards, rhinos, elephant and buffalo.

Go to the Mara River to the north of the park and witness the wildebeest migration crossing the river Mara. It’s an amazing sight to see the wildebeest migration river crossing.
