Masai Mara National Reserve
Two full days in the Maasai Mara with flexible schedule and unlimited mileage. After breakfast, we have a full day dame drive with packed lunch provided. The reserve is well known for its black-manned lion as well as its abundant resident wildlife and its one of the few places where it’s possible to see the big five during a morning’s game drive. Many of the cheetahs are so tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one’s vehicle and several even climb onto the roof to get better view of prospective prey,
