Day 2: Full day Masai Mara
Our morning and afternoon game drives take us in search of Africa’s Big Five as well as the diverse wildlife that inhabits this vast Kenyan game reserve. More to that, the Mara presents spectacular orange-tinged sunsets that are worth photographing on clear days.
Moreover, the Masai Mara is home to a diverse range of animals. For instance;
- Masai giraffes
- bat-eared foxes
- gray jackals
- spotted hyena
Also, elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos can be present in large groups.
Occasionally, lions may be seen either basking in the sun after a large meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. On the other hand, Leopards and cheetahs are more difficult to spot, but they are fairly common.
The annual wildebeest exodus, known as the Great Migration, occurs in July and August. Furthermore, millions of these grazers migrate north from the Serengeti in search of greener pastures, before returning south in October. After the adventure, we shall return to our lodge for dinner and overnight.
