Masai Mara Game Reserve

Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today shall be a game viewing extravaganza!

Everyone has heard of the Masai Mara, Kenya’s and perhaps the world’s most famous and popular park. Why? One reason is that the reserve is pleasing to the eye with its vast rolling hills and beautiful acacia trees. Also, it offers a dense and diverse array of wildlife – it is difficult to miss the masses of animals hunting, stalking and grazing the plains here.

Even more so during the Great Migration (July – October) when millions of wildebeest and zebra invade the Mara River from the neighboring Serengeti. The sight is an unforgettable spectacle of life in an endless cycle of survival. Nearby, crocodile and lions lie in wait.

Natural World Kenya Safaris offers two optional excursions at the Mara. You can take an early morning hot air balloon ride over this unforgettable spectacle, and also visit the local Maasai people to learn about them and their ancient herding culture. Just ask your driver/guide and he’ll be happy to make arrangements for this and other requests.

We’ll spend a full day  here at this smaller but impressive national park. Why impressive? For one, we’re situated at the base of the largest mountain in Africa, legendary Mr. Kilimanjaro, looking out over the park. And here in Amboseli, you’re in the neighborhood of one of the largest populations of free-ranging elephants in the world. From your Jeep you’ll see endless parades of these large ivory-tusked giants.

We’ll go on many game drives here, but there will be time for relaxing as well at your lodge or tented campground. We’ve been going strong for 10 days now, so you can take a breather whenever you please. Or not. The choice is always up to you.
