A relaxed rise followed by a hearty breakfast and thereafter a full day game drive with picnic lunch to see the varied game of the Masai Mara.
We will roam till the border of Tanzania along with the Mara River and Hippo Pool. The plains are full of wildebeest, zebra, impala, topi, giraffe, thomson’s gazelle. Also regularly seen are leopards, lions, hyenas, cheetah, jackal and bat-eared foxes. Hippos are abundant in the Mara River as they are very large Nile crocodile lies to wait for a meal as the wildebeest cross on their annual quest to find new pastures during the Migration time.
Chance to experience the Great Wildebeest Migration is one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World”.
No Where in the world, is there a movement of animals as immense as the wildebeest migration, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October, normally. The migration has to cross the Mara River in the Maasai Mara where crocodiles will prey on them.
This is one of the highlights as the animals try and cross the Mara River alive. In the Maasai Mara they will be hunted, stalked, and run down by the larger carnivores. The Maasai Mara also has one of the largest densities of lion in the world. After an exciting full day safari, we come back to our rooms to freshen up. You can experience the traditional Masai dance in the lodge itself, if you are lucky. Enjoy the evening by roaming around the resort or pass your time mixing with the other tourists from various countries. Enjoy the dinner at the resort.
