Day 2

Experience Masai Mara Magic

Experience Masai Mara Magic

You will have two game drives today: early morning before breakfast and late afternoon, which are considered the best time to spot animals as they are most active. An early start is needed to beat the sun's heat to get some of the best game viewing of the day. This is when the big cats are more active and can provide some of the most dramatic photography. Although staying in bed and waiting until the afternoon to explore might be tempting, this experience will surely create lifetime memories. If you are fortunate enough, you will catch lions during one of their rare bouts of daytime activities. It will 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 its Great Wildebeest Migration. Your dinner and overnight stay will be at Mara Engai Lodge.
