We’ve planned this 10-day safari to give you lots of time explore the rolling hills and acacia tree- dotted plains of the Masai Mara.

You may also see stunning hordes of wildebeests and zebra throughout the park during the Masai Mara Great Migration (July – October). This is the time when uncountable numbers of these grazers invade the park, crossing the Mara River, searching for sustenance.

We’ll take a picnic lunch near the river looking for hippos and crocodiles. And if it is the migration season, look for the vast influx of wildlife streaming into the Mara.

The other optional event is a pre-dawn hot air balloon safari over the park. Imagine, sailing over the Masai Mara as the sun begins to light up the hills, valleys, and rivers of the reserve. You’ll have a perfect view of the wildlife as it roams over the vast plains. A not-to-be-missed experience, your guide can make all the arrangements.
