Days 1 to 4: Bateleur Camp, Masai Mara National Park
Kicking off this luxury, specialised safari, guests embark on a scheduled light air transfer from Wilson Airport in Nairobi to the game-rich Masai Mara National Park. From the airstrip, they will be driven to Bateleur Camp where they will spend three luxurious nights and four days exploring the magnificent Mara. This is a predator-filled park and is a part of the loop made by the masses of migrating wildebeest and zebra every year. At the perfectly positioned Bateleur Camp, guests will see the area on morning and afternoon game drives in open Land Rovers and fascinating night explorations that traverse the private concession adjacent to the reserve in search of predators and other nocturnal animals. Bateleur Camp commands sweeping views over the premier wildlife region of the Mara plains. It is an intimate camp that reflects the ambience of a vintage Kenyan era. Guests will be spoilt by the exclusive service of a personal butler at the stunning camp that was voted one of the World's Best Hotels in 2011. The dining area and veranda have views of the endless game-filled plains of the Mara and enjoy a backdrop of the dramatic Oloololo Escarpment.
