As we go on our game drives for these next several days you’ll get a feeling for the park and the areas you’d like to explore or revisit. Just discuss with your guide as he knows the spots to find the wildlife.

But we’ll be on the lookout for large and also small predators like jackals, hyenas, fox, and mongoose.

The presence of the many grazers here can be overwhelming as we explore for gazelle, antelope, topi, and dik-dik. And the park also boasts hundreds of bird species, accenting the plains with their startling colors.

Toward evening, we’ll time and watch the Mara’s glowing sunsets painting the sky. Return for dinner and overnight at our Masai Mara safari lodge/ tented safari camp.

Day 5 Full-Day Exploring The Masai Mara

Our day 5 of this safari trip in Kenya will be spent at one of the most exciting areas of the Masai Mara to explore; the famous Mara River where the site of the Kenya Wildebeest Migration usually takes place from the month of July through October.

The sight here can be overwhelming during the Masai Mara migration season as the herds of grazers push forward through the river, infested with awaiting crocodiles also drawn to this spot by natural instinct. This veritable flood of wildlife overtakes the park in great trains of animals pushing out to the horizons. It’s known as the largest movement of wildlife on the planet.

It’s a stunning spectacle to be watched at an close-up angle.

We also offer optional safari activities that can spice up your package trip to Africa, perhaps more so from the perch of a hot air balloon. Take advantage of our optional early morning balloon safari ride, rising with the sun to witness the park and its uncountable inhabitants below playing out the cycles of nature.

For a different kind of safari moment, enjoy an optional visit to a local village. There you’ll meet the Maasai people living as they have for centuries in their pastoral lifestyle. Learn about their lives, culture, and dramatic ceremonies, make your Kenya safari tour complete with this special occasion.
