How many days are enough in the Masai Mara?
There`s not enough time to stay in Masai Mara but there is a minimum number of days one should stay in this award-winning reserve.
The minimum number of days you can stay in Masai Mara is 3 Days for you to have a good taste of this phenomenal park.
This is why this 3 Days Masai Mara Joining Group Safari is popular among tourists who want to have a feel of this awe-inspiring reserve which holds the 7th world wonder of the wildebeest migrations.
Millions of these animals including Zebras and Gazelles migrate and pass through the famous river Mara where the 3D action happens.
This brings the question of when should I visit Masai Mara to witness this wonder? See all the details below.
Best time to Visit Masai Mara to See the Wildebeest Migration?
Masai Mara is full of adventure all year round but if you need to witness the wildebeest migration the best time is-:
Based on my experience and not what is in the books, if you want to see the migration. Fly or drive to Masai Mara in July.
However, the wildebeest start arriving in small bits on Mara River in Mid-June and the party starts to end in Mid October.
This is the period we call Peak Season and tour packages are generally high but worth every dime you pay for.
If a private Safari is beyond your budget and you still want to experience this bewitching experience of the wildebeest.
Then you can try this 3 Days Masai Mara Joining Group. The Earlier you book the better to reserve your seat in time.
What to know about the 3 Days Masai Mara Joining Group.
You will be traveling with people you have never met before. This can be thrilling to some while to others it is not.
Sometimes you will share a Tour Van or Land Cruiser to full capacity and one of you will miss a window seat.
While other times you may just be two of you or even solo depending on the number of the bookings. What you can be assured of is that Incredible Kenya Adventures Ltd will never cancel a booking because of quorum.
As you get to know your fellow solo travelers you may realize you`re from different tour companies and this should not make you feel like you were “Sold Out”.
Sometimes tour companies are not just competitors but also come together and work together just to make your travel affordable.
Just like you shouldn’t snoop on your spouse`s phone, discussing prices with your fellow travelers should be the last thing.
We all charge differently but the margin is never inconceivable anyway.
Most of the time you will likely share the Tour Van or Land Cruiser with fellow travelers in different options which I had described above.
Meaning you will be in different Camps and Lodges. The Driver/guide will always be fair to you all and you will get equal treatment.
The guide will always pick you up individually and drop you off before and after the game drives. All you will need is to observe patience in this 3 Days Masai Mara Joining group Package.
Is group Joining Safari worth it?
This is the reason I have given you what to expect in a group joining Safari. However, since I have done this severally the answer is.
Yes, it is worth every dime you spend, you will get to make new friends and you never know who you will meet, that suspension is kind of thrilling.
If you`re on a budget it is wise of you to get to share costs with another solo traveler of the same or rather sharing common Interests.
