Masai Mara is one of Africa's greatest wildlife reserves. Acacia dotted plains, tree-lined rivers and woodlands are abundant with wildlife and an array of birdlife. Game viewing is spectacular year round; you may see a pride of lions stalking their prey, observe a herd of elephant and their fascinating social structure, or see pods of hippo wallowing in the rivers. The great wildebeest migration is one of nature's wonders; an estimated two million animals migrate in a year-round pattern through Tanzania and Kenya, following the rain. Around July each year the huge herds begin dramatic river crossings and the grasslands of the Mara are covered by a mass of moving wildebeest, offering easy opportunity for crocodile and predators that are never far away. When in the Mara visit a traditional Maasai village or take a balloon safari at an extra cost.
Day 5: Masai Mara (Fig Tree Camp)
Today, if you want to catch the animals at their most active, you will get up at sunrise. Fingers crossed, you may even spot a leopard, the most elusive of the Big 5. After your game drive breakfast is served overlooking the gardens and the park. Following this you can choose to spend the morning relaxing or else visit a local Masai village to get a better understanding of their culture and way of life. Following lunch, in the late afternoon, you will be offered the chance to go on a leisurely game drive. In the evening you can choose to spend a little longer in the park, perhaps finding a spot facing the sunset from which you can toast your Kenyan adventure.
