The 3-day Flying Masai Mara Safari is ideal for travelers intending on visiting Masai Mara while wanting to avoid the 5 to 6-hour road trip from Nairobi. Instead, we can offer a flight package Safari with a one-hour flight from Wilson airport in Nairobi taking you to Masai Mara. Enjoy the Masai Mara reserve’s astounding year-round concentration of animals, including the seasonal Great Wildebeest Migration, guests can have an unsurpassed wildlife experience.

*Safari available in a 4-day day package option. Please speak to our safari experts for more information.


Day 1: Flight from Nairobi to Masai Mara

When you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met and driven to Wilson Airport for your flight to Masai Mara. The flight takes around 45 minutes and you fly over the scenically beautiful Great Rift Valley.

On arrival in the Masai Mara, it’s a short game drive en route to the camp, before an al fresco lunch overlooking the Mara River. Embark on a thrilling afternoon game drive at around 3:30pm and return in the dusk for drinks and chatter around the campfire, before your dinner. Fall asleep to the night-time chorus of the Masai Mara!

* We can tailor-make this tour to add additional destinations in East Africa, extra nights stays, make logistical changes, accommodation swaps, add-on activities like a hot air balloon safari over the Masai Mara etc. at an additional cost.

Accommodation: Governors' Camp

Day 2: Masai Mara Game Reserve

Arise early each morning to make the most of your spectacular location. Enjoy game drives within the Mara National Reserve, immersing yourself in this rich wildlife destination.

Most famous for the Great Migration from July to October when over 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra cross over into Kenya from the Serengeti, game viewing in the Masai Mara is a remarkably rewarding year-round experience. Home to an unprecedented variety and profusion of animal and birdlife, it's highly unlikely you won't encounter the Big 5 at some point during your safari. Other sightings you can expect to have include cheetah, hyena, jackal, hippo, crocodile, baboon, various antelope species, waterbuck, wildebeest, giraffe and zebra.

Accommodation: Governors' Camp

Day 3: Masai Mara to Nairobi

On your final day, head out on an early morning game-drive at sunrise, followed by breakfast at the camp. After lunch, you will be transferred to the airstrip to catch the afternoon flight to Nairobi.

Governors' Camp

Governors’ Camp is Africa’s first permanent tented camp, remaining in its original site since 1972. It occupies the best wildlife viewing location in the Reserve, nestled in the riverine forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile. It is perfect for couples, families and friends wanting to experience the best of what a safari in the Masai Mara has to offer.

The entire camp is under canvas with all of the comforts of a luxury hotel. Some of the 30 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara.  The tents are big, bright and allow in lots of natural light. All tents are classic safari style each with en-suite bathrooms and a private verandah.  There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and dinning tent with views over the plains. Please also be sure to enquire about our Spa tent which offers a range of treatments including facials, massages, manicures and pedicures.

Governors’ Camp has been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco – Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.
