After an early morning breakfast, we depart for Masai Mara via Lake Naivasha…We will have 1 hour boat ride in this beautiful lake before proceeding to the Masai Mara….
The highest of all the Rift Valley lakes, Lk. Naivasha is a beautiful shallow freshwater lake fringed by thick papyrus reeds. The
waters of the lake draw great array of bird life to its shoreline. Buffalo wallow in the swamps, whilst the large hippo population laze their days in the shallows. Giraffe wander among the acacia, whilst the Colobus monkeys swing from the green canopies above. From here, you can also visit Elsamere & Crescent Island game sanctuary
Continue through the Great Rift Valley floor via Narok town to the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Arrive at the lodge for lunch. Early afternoon spent at leisure. Late afternoon game drive in the reserve – home to the “Big Five”elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino as well as cheetah, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, hippo, impala, gazelle and numerous other wildlife including many hundreds of species of birds. Return to your Lodge at sundown for Dinner & Overnight.
The Masai Mara is the Jewel in the Crown of East Africa, forever to be associated with vast numbers of game - the greatest wildlife experience of all. Year round the Masai Mara Reserve is host to an enormous concentration of animals, boosted by the famous wildebeest and zebra migration during July/August/October.
All the Big Cats, Elephant, Black Rhino and thousands of plains game spread out before you - it's better than the Discovery Channel because you are part of the spectacle. The birds are fantastic - from the giant Martial Eagle, to the ground Hornbill and a myriad of other diverse species. The Mara is undoubtedly Hollywood Africa, grass plains interspersed with Migunga and Croton thickets, rolling hills and small kopjes, islands in the sea of grass abound.
Small rivers feed massive fig trees on their banks. This is the northernmost extension of the Serengeti ecosystem and is a microhabitat in its own right.
You will spend the next 02 nights here to explore.
The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. Dinner and overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge| AA Mara Lodge| Sentrim Mara Camp| Mara Leisure Camp (Luxury) /Similar- Meal Plan (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
