After breakfast, depart for Kenya's most famous park, Maasai Mara National Reserve to arrive in time for lunch. An afternoon game drive will familiarize you with the variety of game animals and bird life in this beautiful Park. Even if nothing spectacular happens on this outing, the landscape will fill you with admiration for how the savannah sustains much life. Set in the heart of Africa's Great Plains, the Maasai Mara boasts 1,672 square kilometers of unspoilt wilderness. It is home to the highest concentration of animals and birds anywhere on the continent. Throughout the year the Mara is a place of natural drama, a kaleidoscope of color and life. The famed "Big Five" - Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Buffalo and Leopard - roam the reserve, together with hundreds of others from the fastest animal on earth, the Cheetah, to one of the most secretive, the Bat-eared Fox. After the rains, when the first flush of grass turns the Mara's golden savannah green, the mesmerizing wildlife spectacle anywhere takes place here: the Great Migration. This is the time when 1.5 million Wildebeest, accompanied by vast numbers of Zebra and Gazelles make the long and dangerous trek from drier lands in Tanzania, northwards to this corner of Kenya. For most of the century the Mara has drawn those searching for adventure and the thrill is still the same today with days spent face to face with nature at its most untouched and enthralling. Overnight at Sentrim Mara Camp.
