Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
We spend the next two days game driving in the Masai Mara National Reserve. There is usually time for two game drives (morning and afternoon) with time to relax at camp in middle of the day (when most wildlife is less active). This reserve is famous for being one of East Africa’s top National Reserves and is home to a broad selection of wildlife species. It is perhaps most well-known for hosting the magnificent Annual Migration, consisting of massive herds of over one million, including wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle that all cross over from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The Masai Mara is most visited between the months of July and October, when these impressive herds feast on the luscious, fresh grazing available in the reserve. Africa’s predators are usually close behind these herbivores and are frequently seen at a kill during this time of year. We game drive some more through a portion of the park searching for the Big 5, as well as many other species of wildlife who make this reserve their home.
We have the opportunity to pay a visit to one of the close by Masai Manyattas (optional)- family compounds where the Masai live in their traditional ways. During the night, we gather around an open campfire and marvel at the magnificent sunset provided to us by the glorious skies of Africa.
