The next two days three and four are set aside for game viewing in Kenya’s finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. Our morning and afternoon game drives take us in search of Africa’s Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Masai Mara Game Reserve offers fantastic orange-tinged sunsets that make for spectacular photos.
The Mara Reserve covers 1510km² of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodlands, following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in southwest Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife.
Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara National Reserve you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, Baboons, Warthogs, Bat-eared foxes, Grey jackals, Spotted hyena, Topis, Impalas, Hartebeests, Wildebeest. Elephants, Buffalos, Zebras, and Hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see Lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and Leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is without a doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grazers move north from the Serengeti National Park in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.
Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at extra cost.
