DAY 3 & 4: MASAI MARA
2 full days game viewing following the migration herds of gnus and zebra in the Masai Mara.
An amazing spectacle of nature!
Masai Mara offers an absolutely unique variety of animals, thanks to its hilly topography, humid and fertile soil, watered by perennial Mara and Talek rivers, full of crocodiles and hippo. The banks of the rivers are covered in thick forest, which gradually makes way for bush and grassland. The abundance of water and excellent availability of food are the reasons why the Masai Mara, which in fact is a continuance of the Tanzanian Serengeti National Park, has the greatest population of wild animals in the whole of Africa. There is a particularly dramatic “spectacle” from July to November, the annual migration of huge herds of Gnus and Zebras. Predators such as Hyenas, Jackals, Leopards and Lions of course, closely follow these herds. Gigantic herds of over 200 buffaloes can also be observed. Plenty of food is available for elephants, giraffes, and the many species of antelopes.
Fullboard stay at the lodge or tented camp.
