Today you will have a full day game viewing in Kenya’s finest wildlife destination, the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange-tinged sunsets that make for spectacular photos. Remember, much game are coming your way when you are in the park leaving you with an option of counting your blessings that nature holds for you as you view them in their natural habitat.
The Mara Reserve covers 1,510km² of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodlands, following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in southwest Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife. Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyenas, topis, impalas, hartebeests, wildebeest migration. Elephants, buffalos, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers.
It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common. The ultimate action here is without a doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, when millions of these grazers move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October for the new life circle to begin after a life threatening move across the strong jaws and sharp canines of East Africa crocodile found within the Mara River and Talek River.
Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at extra cost 450 us dollars per person. Dinner and overnight at a luxury lodge or budget camping included is F/B.
