A lioness in the Masai Mara

Masai Mara - 4 Days

Take a walk on the wild side with this Masai Mara Mini Safari bolt-on.

Kenya’s Masai Mara is arguably the country’s most famous reserve. Its smooth grass-carpeted hills and plains dotted with flat-topped acacia trees are full of rich faunal diversity, fulfilling the expectations of any visitor searching the African landscape for the Big 5. Located west of the Rift Valley, the Mara is a natural extension of the Serengeti plains, in neighbouring Tanzania. The Mara River, the reserve’s backbone, traverses north to south. This course is the natural barrier crossed every year by the large migratory herds of wildebeest and zebra which march across the two parks in a quest for the best pastures, crossing en route the crocodile-infested river. Coupled with ever-watchful predatory cats in the midst, the annual migration is a risky operation and fraught with peril. Enjoy a game drive through the Mara and the chance to spot a diverse array of wildlife including elephant, giraffe, black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, gazelle, buffalo, hippo, various other herbivorous species and birds.
