November 1st - Masai Mara 

We head south to Narok; towards the expansive Masai Mara Reserve. We stop for lunch at the Keekorok lodge followed by an afternoon game drive to experience the Mara Magic, returning for a sun downer and dinner in the evening.

Wherever you go in the Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest, elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal as well as cheetahs and leopards which are harder to spot.

November 2nd - Masai Mara 

The day is spent exploring the reserve through morning and afternoon game drives. You may opt to do additional activities offered at the lodges as well. For example; balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for a beautiful champagne breakfast. You may also visit a local Masai village or school just outside the reserve. Picnic lunches and night game drives can also be arranged at some properties.
