Day 2: Masai Mara

The Mara's landscape is scenic savannah grassland on rolling hills, which enables the reserve to attract sufficient rainfall to maintain and support a large population of herbivores, together with the predators that follow. Elephant, lion, buffalo can be seen with relative ease though luck is a necessary factor for spotting rhino and leopard that complete the big five as the two animals are very timid and sparsely numbered. Plains game like wildebeest, zebra and Maasai giraffe abound as well as hippos and a wide variety of antelopes including impala, dik dik, hartebeest, Grants gazelle and Thompson's gazelle among others.
We will cater for a picnic lunch at the hippo pool. In the evening, return to the campsite for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 3: Masai Mara

After breakfast, another day of tracking game with your guide till dawn.
Maasai Mara National Reserve borders Tanzania's Serengeti National Park and is the annual seasonal scene of the migration of close to 800,000 zebra and wildebeest that occurs between the two parks. In the afternoon there is a choice between a game drive and a nature walk escorted by our armed Maasai guides.
