Margaret, and Mt. Longonot.

This game reserve is among the 9 wonders of the world and is a renowned tourist destination in Kenya, famous for the wildebeest migration along the Mara River. The river is full of Crocodiles and hippos which traverse the Mara.

After breakfast at the camp, you will explore the park’s amazingly high concentration of game.

A full day of game drives with a picnic lunch at the Mara River as you enjoy the scenic view of the crocodiles resting on the brown-muddy river banks generates lasting African safari memories.

The rolling grasslands of the Maasai Mara offer ideal game viewing and photographic opportunities and the grassy plains are broken by rocky outcrops which are favorite midday resting places for Lion.

This is where millions of Wildebeest cross the Mara River from the Serengeti National park of Tanzania to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve of Kenya – an annual spectacular event, which brings along thousands of plains game and predators to the Mara, making the park a beehive of ‘wildlife activities’.

Late afternoon can be spared for a visit to the Maasai village to be enlightened on the Maasai culture and perhaps enjoy a Maasai cultural dance.
