Half Day Game Drive, Maasai Mara National Reserve

Maasai Mara National Park is different to other national parks due to its undulating hills, spectacular plains and flat vistas which are filled with a variety of wildlife. If you find yourself in the Maasai Mara in the months of July to October, then you have a high chance of seeing one of the world’s most spectacular and largest mass movement of animals – the great migration. Catch millions of wildebeest tailed by Zebra, Gazelle and ultimately a plethora of predators as the herd moves through the Maasai Mara on their annual journey.

Whilst you traverse this large world famous National Reserve look out for various mammals including the “Big 5”, Hippo, Giraffe, Crocodiles, Monkeys, Mongoose, Jackals and the sought-after Cheetah. Birdlife is also prolific and includes a whopping 500 species.
