Later you will disembark at the shores of the lake and to Crescent Island for a walking safari on this paradise on earth where they filmed the movie Out of Africa.
On this day of safari is a drive to the famous Maasai Mara National Reserve. The reserve is well known for its black-maned lions as well as its abundant resident wildlife and it’s one of the few places where it is possible to see the big five during either the morning or the evening game drives.
Many of the Cheetahs are so tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one’s vehicles and on several occasions climb onto the roof to get a better view of prospective prey. For the birds enthusiastic almost 500 species have been recorded among these, species of eagle plus many hawks and falcons,6 species of vultures, 8 species of storks, 4 of Bastards (including the Kori bustard the world’s heaviest flying bird), and 9 species of sunbirds.
Arrive at your accommodation in time for lunch.
The afternoon game drive starts at 16:00 exploring this great African savanna, back to your accommodation when the sun sets down behind the horizons with a beautiful silhouette against the dimming African skies.
The second day in Mara will be spent exploring the extensive grasslands savannas with options of a full day, half-day, or morning and afternoon game drives. Whatever best suits you depends on the wildlife sighting, migration patterns, and the prevailing weather conditions.
