Kenya mid-range accommodation safari

Maasai Mara National Reserve (also known as Maasai Mara, Masai Mara and by the local people as The Mara) is a large game reserve in Narok County, Kenya, contiguous with the Serengeti National Park in Mara Region, Tanzania. It is named in honor of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area) and their description of the area when looked at from afar: "Mara," which is Maa (Maasai language) for "spotted," an apt description for the circles of trees, scrub, savanna, and cloud shadows that mark the area. It is globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs, and the annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration.

Day 3: Amboseli national park to Lake Nakuru national park
After an early breakfast leave amboseli for Nairobi and proceed to Lake Nakuru national park, picnic lunch en-route I recommend that you relax within the hotel and proceed for a game viewing in Lake Nakuru on Day 4 as this will give you much time in Lake Nakuru when you have more energy.

Day 5: maasai mara game reserve
A full day set aside today for game viewing in Kenya's finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. 
Our morning and afternoon (full day) game drives take us in search of Africa's Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange-tinged sunsets that make for spectacular photos. Much game are coming at your door step when you in the park leaving you with only option of counting your blessings that nature holds for you as you view them in their natural habitat.
The Mara Reserve covers 1510km² of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodlands, following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in southwest Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife. 

Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara Park 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, buffalos, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is without a doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grazers move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October for the new life circle to begin after a life threatening move across the strong jaws of East Africa crocodile found within the mara river and talek river.  Despite the wildebeest movement in the month of July, Aug and October, Maasai mara is well known for its wide range of wildlife (Flora and fauna) all the year round.
