Day 10 Maasai Mara National Reserve
Spend the entire day exploring this world famous game reserve. This reserve is not only the most popular game reserve in the country, it is probably why people visit Kenya. The reserve is set on a classic African savannah and the huge density of wildlife is astounding. Zebras, wildebeest and gazelles graze in large herds and as a matter of fact where prey is in plenty so are the predators. The reserve covers an area of approximately 1510 sq km of open grassland waters by the Mara River and Talek which is a tributary of the former. Here it is very common to see the big cats hunting; they are also in their numbers. The leopard is the hardest to spot of the famous Big Five, but in Mara it not as hard to see it relaxing on a tree. Hippos, buffaloes, elephants, giraffes also exist in large numbers. Return to the camp for overnight (NB: You may opt to forego one of your game drives for a visit to a Masai village for an amazing cultural experience. Balloon Safaris over the reserve are also available at an extra cost)
Day 11 Maasai Mara National Reserve- Nairobi
Rise up early for your last morning game drive before returning to your camp for breakfast. Later leave this great game reserve and drive back to Nairobi with picnic lunch en-route.
