Depart Nairobi in the morning for Maasai Mara through the floor of the Great Rift Valley arriving in time for lunch. The rest of the day is dedicated to wildlife viewing to catch the hunting of the big cats before dusk. Game in this area includes; Elephants, Zebras, Cape buffalo, Hippos by the edges of the rivers, Thomson’s gazelle and Migratory Wildebeest. Return to the Lodge for dinner and overnight at Mara Sopa/Serena/Sarova Lodges.
Depending on the time of the year, today will involve a drive down the river or across the plains in search of the scores of wildebeest who gather here at certain times of the year. The wildebeest migration, has been described as `the greatest wildlife show on earth`. This breathtaking spectacle is enabled by the Mara being an extension of the renowned Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Safari is best during the months of July, August, September and October. The migrating Wildebeests during these months usually cross the rising Mara River in search of the mineral rich sprouting grasses on the Kenya Side. Crocodiles are usually active along the crossing points feeding on Zebra, Topi and Buffalo. The diversity of the Masai Mara scenery, including meandering rivers, towering escarpments and rolling grasslands, provide the perfect habitat for the abundance of game, including the Big Five, which can be found here.
A leisurely breakfast and then depart for Nairobi arriving in the afternoon.
