Destination: Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Rise a little before dawn to begin your morning game drive. As the sun rises, you shouldn’t have any trouble spotting wildlife, as this is often one of the most active times of the day for animals.
After what is hopefully an exciting morning’s drive, you will return to the camp for lunch and to relax during the heat of the day. Set off again in the afternoon – this time you can expect to return to the camp at around sunset. Depending on wildlife movements, you may not return to the camp in the middle of the day, making for one full game drive instead (in this case you will stop for a picnic lunch).
Once you return to the camp there is an option to go back out and visit a Maasai Village. These visits can be fascinating to learn about the different culture and way of life of traditional Maasai people.
An optional balloon ride over the Masai Mara at sunrise is highly recommended, an unforgettable experience for many travelers. Enjoy a balloon ride over the Mara. Glide through the dawn, sometimes at tree height, enjoying amazing photo opportunities. Upon landing, you’ll be treated to a bush breakfast before returning to your vehicle.
Note: The hot air balloon ride is a popular activity with limited places, so it’s offered as a pre-booked activity which guarantees you a place. If you choose to wait and book this activity locally on the ground, you may risk missing out on a place.
