Day 2

Masai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara National Reserve

You will be taken on two game drives today, in the morning before breakfast and in the late afternoon. Early mornings and late afternoons are considered the best time to spot animals as they are most active. To get some of the best game viewing of the day, an early start is needed to beat the heat of the sun. This is the time that the big cats are most active and can provide some of the most dramatic photography, thanks to the beautiful lighting. Although it might be tempting to stay in bed and wait until the afternoon to explore, I promise you this is a game drive you don’t want to miss. This is an experience that will surely create lifetime memories. If you are fortunate enough you will catch lions during one of their rare bouts of daytime activities and it’ll be fascinating to watch the social interaction between pride members especially the playful ways of lion cubs under the watchful eyes of their mothers. The reserve is famous for the wildebeests’ migration.
