Your safari schedule:

3 October

Evening flight from London to Nairobi.

4 October

Morning safari flight to Musiara airstrip in the Masai  Mara, where Jackson Looseyia will be waiting to welcome you. They’ll be a game drive straight from the airstrip to see if what wildlife is around, before heading to  our camp.     

Tangulia Mara is a hidden gem of a camp in a superb location for wildlife viewing in both the Masai Mara and the Mara Triangle. It is the only camp in Kenya that is solely owned, managed and staffed by Maasai. This intimate and unique camp. It has six luxury en-suite tents under thatched roofs that offer privacy and fabulous panoramic views from their verandahs over a salt lick and The Mara River. The tents are spacious and extremely comfortable with ensuite bathrooms, electric lighting and power sockets (timings limited).                                

The large open-sided mess area has a panoramic terrace with jaw-dropping view over The Mara, which is a perfect place to relax and absorb the natural beauty and watch the wildlife congregate on the salt lick. There is also a log fire, bar area, shop and re-charging banks for laptops, cameras and phones.

After settling in to your tent join Jackson, Dominic and Liz for an al fresco lunch on the terrace or under the shade of the olive trees. In the afternoon head out on to plains to enjoy some of the most spectacular wildlife viewing in the world and enjoy your first sundowner before returning to camp for a dinner.

5, 6, 7 & 8 October

Jackson will seek out the best action on the plains and make sure you spend quality time sitting, observing and understanding the wildlife behaviour as it unfolds before you. You’ll be out with Jackson from dawn to dusk. 

50 years since the iconic film Born Free


Jackson is famous for knowing the Big Cats in The Mara and so you can expect to spend time with lions and cheetahs as well as looking for leopards, but you will not miss out on any special activity whether it be from hyenas, elephants, buffaloes or giraffes.






There’ll be plenty of zebra, hippo, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle, topi, eland, impala, waterbuck, hartebeest, dik dik, jackal, warthog, bat-eared fox, mongoose, crocodiles and even possibly black rhino, serval and caracal. Jackson will also help you identify the hundreds of bird species.













There will be bush breakfasts and lunches most days, so you won’t miss any of the action on the plains or the chance of a crossing.

9 October

Final short game drive or leisurely breakfast in camp before it’s time to bid farewell everyone in camp. Morning safari flight back to Nairobi. Lunch in Nairobi followed by free time for shopping or a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum or the Giraffe Centre.

Later visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage to watch the orphans coming back for the night.  Dinner and overnight at the House of Waine. This is a delightful 11-bedroomed boutique hotel that is very comfortable and relaxing.













10 October

Day time flight back to London.
