Overview

KENYA: Is the home of the Safari. The lure of Kenya has always been the same, the sheer variety of landscape, wildlife, human cultures, and experience. For over a hundred years Kenya has attracted adventurers and romantics from all over the globe. This magical land has been the setting of some of history’s greatest adventure stories. This is the home of Out of Africa, a place where setting out on an adventure into the wilderness became an age-old tradition. The spirit of the Safari lives on today. The romance of sundown drinks and of evenings around a campfire with the distant roar of a lion in the African night is found in Kenya. Every year from July through October more than 1.5 million the wildebeest and more than 200,000 zebras and Gazelles migrate from the Great Plains of the Serengeti and into the rolling savannahs of Masai Mara in Kenya.

Please note-

Traveling in remote locations can present challenges that may require slight changes to the itinerary. We will always try to run the tour as the initial itinerary. In the event, beyond our control, such as political unrest, natural disasters, overbooking by the lodge, where a change is required, we will do our best to keep you close to the original location. It is our intention for you to have the best possible experience. We will try to notify you of any changes as soon as we are made aware of them. If, however, these changes cause an increase to the price, the increase will be passed onto the participant.

MEAL PLAN: FULLBOARD

DAY 8-MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

We will spend the next 2 days exploring the Sand River and the Talek areas as two of the richest predator areas of the Mara. We will focus on the big cats, including the Black rock pride, the Marsh pride, made famous by the BBC’s series, “Big Cat Diary”, the double cross pride, and the Rekero pride, which is quickly becoming as powerful as the Marsh pride. These locations are also known for cheetah and leopards, but we will probably see elephants, hippos, Masai giraffes, common zebras, Gnu, Impalas, Thompson’s and grant’s gazelles, Topi, hartebeest, black-backed jackals, spotted hyenas and more, as the Mara is one of the lushest reserves in Africa. On past safaris we have photographed black rhino in this area.

We will also be closer to the Mara River whereby your experienced driver and guide will be monitoring the migrating herds of the wildebeest, and as soon as we see a sign of a possible river crossing, we will drive towards the river in hopes of capturing a large crossing.

The adrenaline starts pumping when you see the herds line up and march towards the river, gathering along the banks in mass. The suspense begins as you watch the first wildebeest, zebra, or Eland put in a hoof to test the waters. The drama unfolds as they are spooked, and the mass herd runs back, leaving a thick cloud of dust, or they plunge into the croc infested waters in a mass stampede, risking injury or death, to reach the other side.

In the late evening we will sit around the campfire as we excitedly share the events of that day. After a scrumptious dinner, you will be escorted to your luxury canvas tents.
