Here are 3 facts of 3 days Mara Camping Safari 

1. What is the Size of Mara Game Reserve

The Mara is a 1500 sq km national park which is famous for wide open spaces ideal for great game driving experiences. Further the Masai Mara is home to over 3 million animals which include the greatest numbers of grazers. There is no where else in Africa that you can find such a high concentration of big cat predators like you see in the Masai Mara game park.

2. Wildebeest Migration in the Mara in Kenya camping safari packages

This huge abundance of wildlife coupled with wide open grasslands uninterrupted with tree cover makes Masai Mara a unique park with the most exciting game drives anywhere in Africa. Mara’s splendor and fame is further compounded by the annual great wildebeest migration which sees over 1.5 million animals (1.1 million gnus, 250,000 zebras and over 150,000 gazelles) migrate between Serengeti and Masai Mara, a distance of over 3,000 km in search of pasture. The Masai Mara is the new seven wonders of the world due to its wildlife numbers, vast spaces and the wildebeest migration in Kenya.

3. Timings for a Mara 3 Days Camping Safari

The 3 days Masai Mara camping safari game drive departs for Mara game reserve from Nairobi at 8:30am on day 1 and arrives in Mara after 6hrs drive and arrival at 2:30pm at the Mara for the 3 days tour.

Here are 5 more tips for the best 3 Days kenya Camping safaris 

  1. Use a local agent:  Local tour operators may help you get great prices for a 3 days Masai Mara tour. Foreign agent’s prices are usually higher.
  2. Join a group tour: There are many safari companies in Nairobi that offer daily departures to Masai Mara. These Joining Nairobi tour companies will usually combine several people in an 8-seater tour van to share the cost and make it affordable.
  3. Choose a mid-range Maasai Mara camp: The basic tented camps tend to be abit basic but you can get great value in a mid-range tented camp as they are cleaner, have more facilities and greater food. Examples are Enkorok, Lenchada, Simba and Oryx among others.
  4. Include a Masai Village Tour: It is not enough to see the Masai Mara wildlife and miss out on the Masai people. Make sure to request for a trip to the Masai villages around the park where the Masai can show you their intriguing lifestyle. Learn how to dance the ‘Aduma’ Masai levitational jumping dance or how to make fire with two sticks.
  5. Best time to go to Maasai Mara: If you want to get the wildebeest migration at the Mara river crossing, you will need to go for a safari around between July and august. But the park is full of summer crowds as well and the prices are at their highest at that time. The best time to enjoy low prices and avoid the crowds is to go on the low season around March to May. This however is also the wet season and could complicate game drive at times but as I said the prices are very friendly.
