Day 2 : Full day Maasa1 Mara
We’ll be up early to enjoy the awakening day and the birdsong on the great reserve. This is a day of unlimited game drives so get ready to check off the animals on your “to see” list.
The Maasai Mara features the greatest density of wildlife in this region of Africa and you’re right in the middle of the action.
Should you be here during the Great Migration (July – October) you’ll be witness to the sight of thousands of gazelle, zebra, and wildebeest streaming over the Mara River in search of sustenance.
We’ll visit the river and enjoy a picnic lunch, checking out the hippos, crocodiles and other wildlife action play out before us.
If you wish, you can take an optional visit to the local Maasai people in their village. You’ll learn about their customs, herding lifestyle, and perhaps pick up some of their beaded handiwork.
Another optional treat – an early morning hot air balloon safari over the Maasai Mara! Watch the park come alive and the animals parade in their timeless migration – an unforgettable vision. Just ask your driver/guide to make arrangements.
