Day 06 & 07: Masai Mara

A further 2 days in the Mara with dawn, and afternoon game drives in this reserve, Kenya’s best and most scenic park. At the northern extremity of the unique Serengeti ecosystem. The Masai Mara has a thriving, permanent population of plains game, augmented in the dry season by the migration of 2 million gnus and zebra from the vast, parched Serengeti plains. Of the hunter’s “big five” elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard are quite common, while even the much rare rhino might come out of the thicket for you. The waters of the Mara River are home to crocodiles and pools of hippo, the acacia woodlands and riverine forests favored by leopard and elephant, and the open savannah and dry bush areas play host to the plains' game and their attendant predators such as lion, cheetah, hyena and jackal. Hyenas are plentiful and the cheetah, a 60-miles-per-hour daytime hunter, is often seen.All meals and overnight at the Camp / Lodge.
