Day 1: Mara Sarova Camp, Nairobi/Masai Mara, Kenya
You will be collected from your hotel in Nairobi for a morning drive across the Valley down to the Masai Mara Game Reserve. You arrive in time for lunch before enjoying an afternoon game drive. You then return to camp for dinner and overnight at Mara Sarova Camp.
Accommodation: The camp hosts guests in one of 53 luxury exclusive superior tents and 23 comfortable club tents. Delicious dinners are served at the restaurant, while the bar is available for after dinner drinks and sundowners.
The Maasai people rarely hunt and living alongside wildlife in harmony is an important part of their beliefs. Lion and Wildebeest play as important a role in their cultural beliefs as their own herds of cattle. This unique co-existence of man and wildlife makes this Maasai land one of the world's most unique wilderness regions.
At the heart of these lands is the Masai Mara Game Reserve, widely considered to be Africa's greatest wildlife reserve. The Mara comprises of 200 sq miles of open plains, woodlands and riverine forest. Contiguous with the plains of the Serengeti, the Mara is home to a breathtaking array of life.
The vast grassland plains are scattered with herds of Zebra, Giraffe, Gazelle, and Topi. The Acacia forests abound with birdlife and monkeys. Elephant and Buffalo wallow in the wide Musiara Swamp while the Mara and Talek Rivers are brimming with Hippo and Crocodile.
Each year the Mara plays host to the world's greatest natural spectacle, the Great Wildebeest Migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya. From July to November, the promise of rain and fresh life giving grass in the north brings more than 1.3 million Wildebeest together into a single massive herd.
At the Mara River they mass together on the banks before finally plunging forward through the raging waters, creating frenzy as they fight against swift currents and waiting Crocodile.
The Mara has been called the Kingdom of Lions and these regal and powerful hunters dominate the grasslands. Cheetah are also a common sight in the Mara, as are Hyena and smaller predators such as Jackal.
