Your driver guide will then take you to Nairobi’s domestic airport for your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, which is one of the most iconic wildlife destinations in the world. On arrival at the Masai Mara, you will be met by another tourist guide driver at the airstrip and transferred to your luxury lodge.

On this day in the morning, you will have time to enjoy one final game drive in the Masai Mara, before returning to your lodge or camp for lunch. Thereafter in the afternoon, you be transferred back to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Nairobi.
It is important to note that most international flights depart from Nairobi in the evening/night. To ensure that you don’t waste the final day of your holiday waiting at the airport we can arrange for you to have a car and driver for the afternoon. This way, you can visit places of interest in Nairobi.
We recommend visiting the Giraffe Centre in Lang’ata or the Karen Blixen Museum. If you want to buy some souvenirs you could head to Utamaduni, the Maasai market at Galleria Mall.
