“Safari” meaning journey or adventure is exactly what you can expect at Entumoto. Sharing the experience of being so close to the wilderness and its abundance of wildlife is what it is all about for us. We’ll give you a real understanding of the Masai culture and offer you an experience you will never forget.
Close encounters with the wild game are a given here - enjoyed from the safety of our specially designed open Land Cruisers. Our highly experienced and licensed guides will tell you all about the wildlife, the flora, the culture and anything else you would like to know about the area.
We can offer game drives in the Mara or within our own conservancy where we have the freedom to off road for a closer look at the wildlife. You can also enjoy night game drives, which are not permitted in the Mara, so you can have a chance to see some of the nocturnal species and cats whilst they’re active and hunting at night.
Walking safaris are not allowed within the Masai Mara. However within our conservancy you can walk in the surrounding hills with stunning views or into the valley for a chance to get closer to the wildlife on foot. For your safety this is under the close supervision of our guides and askaris.
With the vast knowledge of the bush that the Masai possess – this is a chance to learn how they use nature to their benefit. You will look at animal spoor and droppings, plants and trees that are used for curing ailments and small animals you would not normally notice from inside the vehicles.
Open air bush meals
We can organise bush meals for you to take on your trip to the Mara or set up a table in the conservancy. Bush meals save you coming back to camp if you want to enjoy a full day safari, we will pack up a home cooked meal which you can eat under the shade of an acacia tree overlooking the Mara plains.
We offer the chance to watch the sunset at some beautiful locations within the conservancy. We can set up a bush fire, and offer a mix of wines, beers and spirits whilst you enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife surrounding you. This combines with a short night drive back to the camp and the chance to sport some nocturnal animals.
The land that makes up the conservancy is leased from local Masai families - we can thereby offer unchallenged insights and genuine cultural experiences of the Masai lifestyle and trips to the local Manyattas.
A sponsor-visit to the Rescue Centre to support the girls that have run away from their homes will be a memorable experience. Listening to the stories of how they have been exploited by their families for early marriage and FGM (which is against the law in Kenya) can be emotional as well as an eye-opening experience.
Conservancy bike rides/runs
We have a stunning bike ride around the conservancy. This loop is relatively flat so suits all levels and gives you a great chance to bike close to the giraffe and other plains game.
If you wish to run we can organise a guide. We will have a vehicle follow you as a safety precaution and you can hop on at any time if you run out of steam.
This is specifically aimed at kids. We can offer a lesson in archery or spear throwing – you can practice learning the techniques of a real Masai warrior.
