Day 2: Masai Mara National Park
This will be a day of tracking game with your guide, after an early breakfast. The Mara’s landscape is scenic savanna grassland on rolling hills, which enables the reserve to attract sufficient rainfall to maintain and support a large population of herbivores, together with the predators that follow. Elephant, lion, buffalo can be seen with relative ease though luck is a necessary factor for spotting rhino and leopard that complete the big five as the two animals are very timid and sparsely numbered. We will cater for a picnic lunch at the hippo pool. In the evening, return to the lodge or campsite for dinner and an overnight stay.
