After a leisurely al fresco breakfast, you will now drive to the extraordinary destination of the Maasai Mara. The journey by road takes you past the floor of the Great rift Valley. You will notice recent fissures caused by the tectonic movements that are suspected to have been aggravated by the heavy rainfall in April 2018. These cut huge and long trenches along peoples farms, roads and even buildings for several kilometers. Arrive to the Maasai Mara Reserve for Lunch.

After lunch you will have a rest, and then you will have an evening game viewing drive.

The Maasai Mara is perhaps one of the most prolific and famous reserves in Africa. Apart from being the home to the famous Big Five of Lion, leopard, Rhino, African Elephant and Buffalo, and having featured in perhaps hundreds of films forming up the ‘Big Cat Diaries’, the reserve got the status of the Seventh world wonder due to the annual wildebeest migration that takes place between July – September. This natural phenomenon is quite incredible. Over 1.3 million wildebeests cross the Mara River from Serengeti; many are swept away by currents, hundreds of predators get easy prey and this just gets dramatic. With crocodiles in the rivers, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs on land awaiting and the vultures in the skies, this creates a pile of activities that one never gets bored of watching.

Later before dusk, return for dinner and overnight at your Camp.
