Have breakfast and depart for Masai Mara Game Reserve, seen by many as the jewel of Kenya’s park. This is Kenya’s number one park and is always on every tourist’s “Must See List”. Full of life with various types of animals and birds, Masai Mara is the climax of every safari in Kenya. Its rolling grasslands and acacia savannah have time and again been captured on film with the movie “Out of Africa” being the most famous. Masai Mara is home to the “Big Five” (Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard and Rhino) and over 450 bird species.

The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well spread rainfall year-round. Apart from the big five, the Masai Mara is most famous for the annual migration of over a million wildebeest, zebra, gazelle etc. from the Serengeti in northern Tanzania crossing the Mara River into Kenya in search of fresh feeding grounds, which takes place in late July to September. During this crossing, hundreds of animals are swept away by the first moving Mara River and others are killed by the ferocious African Crocodiles. This crossing gives true meaning to the phrase “Survival of the fittest”.

Even when the annual wildebeest migration is quiet, the Mara offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa, great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of elands, buffaloes, impalas and Grant’s gazelles. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Mara River, while cheetahs prowl the plains.

Arrive at Ashnil Mara Camp for check-in & lunch. In the afternoon head out with your driver and start spotting nature at its best, exploring wildlife and as the sun starts to edge dip into the African horizon it will be the perfect opportunity for you to capture the beautiful Mara landscape on film. Dinner and overnight at  Ashnil Mara Camp.

Morning breakfast at the camp and afterward head out with your packed lunch boxes and spend the day in the reserve as you explore and experience nature in its raw form; the landscape is breathtaking with its network of roads specially constructed for game viewing.
