A proud lion sits in Kenya's Masai Mara, a top spot for many of our African safaris.
This morning it’s an early start as we leave for the Masai Mara National Reserve and the Mara Sopa Lodge. The magic of the Mara becomes clear as soon as we enter the Reserve's gates. The vast open plains are home to some of the most spectacular wildlife documentaries and photos. The Mara Sopa Lodge has been created to ensure clients get the most authentic Kenyan experience. Praised for its ethnic design, the lodge is surrounded by beautiful gardens but perfectly representing the Mara.

After you have checked in and enjoyed lunch you may want to take some time to unpack and settle in. In any case we suggest you wait until the heat of the day has begun to subside until you head out on your first game drive. Back at the Lodge dinner will be served after pre-dinner drinks in the Lodge's main area. A fun way to meet other guests and discuss the day’s events. Overnight - Mara Sopa Lodge (B, L, D)

Another fabulous day in the Masai Mara awaits as we wake early ready for an early morning game drive.

Alternatively, explore the grounds with a guide, spotting the smaller animals of the Mara on foot.

After lunch another game drive out in the Reserve spotting and ticking off some of those must see animals from your list is a rewarding way to spend the afternoon before returning to the lodge for dinner. Overnight - Mara Sopa Lodge (B, L, D)
