Day 2: Full Day Maasai Mara
Full day spent exploring this natural wonder with a visit to the Mara River where the wildebeest migration takes place. See both the hippos and the crocodiles coexist in the same waters. The Masai Mara’s biggest draw card is the Wildebeest Migration when vast hordes of Wildebeest roar through the park bringing in its trail a wake of mighty predators. At Mara River watch as crocodiles and lions compete to pick-off stragglers from the clattering herds of wildebeest.
Optional Maasai Mara Balloon Ride: Enjoy early morning ballooning over the plains, getting a bird’s eye view of the game below as the sun creeps slowly over the horizon. After approximately one hour aloft, the balloon lands while a breakfast is being prepared for us nearby. The smell of bacon, sausages and eggs drift on the breeze as we sample exotic Kenyan fruits and homemade pastries and, if you wish, glasses of bubbly to toast our flight, a tradition initiated by the Montgolfier brothers.Overnight at Sarova Mara game camp/Keekorok Lodge/Mara Leisure Camp or a similar lodge booked on full board; Lunch/Dinner/ Breakfast

From October to March, palaearctic migrants generously supplement the resident bird population. On Lake Naivasha, pelicans and cormorants are numerically superior but pride of place must go to the African Fish Eagle whose haunting call remains as significant to lake visitors as does the roar of a lion in the parks.Overnight at Amboseli Sopa Lodge or a similar lodge booked on full board; Lunch/Dinner/ Breakfast

Lapped by the Indian Ocean, straddling the equator, and with Mount Kenya rising above a magnificent landscape of forested hills, patchwork farms and wooded savanna, Kenya is a richly rewarding place to travel. Great historical figures such as Theodore Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway immortalized this country. Out of Africa and other films have romanticized and perpetuated the safari mystique.

Globally recognized as the home of safari, Kenya has abundant wildlife and one of the most diversely majestic landscapes on the continent. Lodge safaris are generally less expensive here than in Tanzania. Flying, mobile tented, walking and horseback safaris also are available. Many of the private reserves cater to a maximum of 12-24 guests in luxury accommodations and offer activities not allowed within the parks, such as open vehicles, night game drives and escorted walks.

In the national parks you may view game in vehicles with roof hatches or poptops. Booking a safari with a private vehicle and guide is a great way to maximize the quality of your game-viewing experience. Other activities include hot air ballooning, mountaineering, scuba diving, freshwater and deep sea fishing, and relaxing at beach resorts.

Kenya’s wild life habitat is considerable and includes the Masai Mara, an area of animal migration. Africa’s “Big Five” animals are found in the country, which are the leopard, rhinoceros, lion, elephant, and buffalo. The national parks and reserves are also home to numerous other animals as well as reptiles and birds. The annual migration between June and September is a popular event for filmmakers.

Kenya lies across the equator in East-Central Africa, on the coast of the Indian Ocean. Kenya shares some of its tourism resources with Tanzania (Masai Mara-Serengeti ecosystem) and also with Uganda on Mount Elgon. Lake Victoria is shared between Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya. The capital and commercial City is Nairobi. There are over 40 different ethnic groups in Kenya. Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa and the country takes its name from the mountain.
