Masai Mara, Kenya
We leave shortly after the sun rises on our game drive into the Masai Mara Reserve. This reserve is famous for being one of East Africa’s best National Reserves and is home to a wide variety of wildlife species. It is renowned for the Annual Migration, consisting of impressive herds of over one million wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle that cross over from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The Masai Mara is most popular between the months of July and October when these impressive herds feast on the luscious, fresh grazing here. 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 section of the park, in search of the Big 5 as well as many other species of animals, reptiles and birds who call this wilderness their.
Following our game drive, we have the option to visit to one of the nearby Masai Manyattas – a village where the Masai still live in their traditional way. This evening we gather around an open campfire and marvel at the magnificent sunset.
