Masai Mara EcoQuest

This EcoQuest program is based on our EcoQuest program in South Africa and Botswana and includes unique elements which reflect the fascinating dynamics occurring in the wildlife areas of the Mara. It is an immersive educational safari for those wanting to visit Kenya specifically and the five day to two week durations fit perfectly with the wildebeest migration and other Kenya travel plans.
