DAY 2: Maasai Mara
Enjoy full day game drives in the Mara Packed lunches will be served. Masai Mara is situated to the west of Nairobi; on Tanzania's northern border-it is the extension to the larger Serengeti National Reserve in Tanzania. The Maasai Mara offers wonderful scenery and abundance as existed a century ago. It is a reserve of breathtaking vistas, panoramas of vast rolling plains, hills and woodland groves, well watered by the lovely Mara River, which bisects the reserve from north to south. The Mara is the home to the largest population of lions in Kenya, these magnificent beasts spending most of the day sleeping in the shade of acacia trees. Vast herds of buffalo, Zebra, and wildebeest roam the plains. Impala, gazelle, giraffe and hartebeest grace the landscape, and the cautious topi may be seen standing sentinel on earth mounds on constant lookout of predators. The waters of the Mara River are home to crocodiles and pools of hippo, the acacia woodlands and revering forests favored by leopard and elephant, and the open savannah and dry bush areas play host to the plain's game and their attendant predators such as Lion, cheetah, hyena and jackal.
