MAASAI MARA GAME RESERVE is the land of African legend: Lion are abundant throughout the park, as are the elephants, giraffes, and a variety of gazelle species and zebra. Cheetah and leopard are also regularly seen and, less commonly, rhino. The annual wildebeest migration, one of nature's few remaining wildlife spectacles, occurs in the Mara where the big animals and their predators are to be present in abundance during the time frame of this trip. Several species of Bee-Eater, the flying rainbow that heads the list of the Mara's birds, occur in the reserve. As well as wildlife, the Masai Mara is also home to many members of the colorful Maasai tribe who may be seen around the borders of the park - Morans (warriors) loping across the plains, young boys herding goats, or elders grouped under a tree discussing matters of the day.
Overnight at a MAASAI MARA LODGE, or similar (FB)
Day 02 & 03. You will have two full days in Maasai Mara: Morning and afternoon game drives in the finest wildlife game area in Kenya, noted for its wildebeest migration safari, lions and other wildlife. Optional balloon ride and a visit to a local Maasai village is a great way to sum up this safari experience.
BALLOON SAFARI: Depending on where you are staying, you will be picked and transferred by a 4x4 jeep to the launching site. After the flight briefing and watch the inflation of your balloon by the pilot you will take off, rising as the sun rises and float in whichever direction the winds of the morning take us. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times he will ascend to 1000ft or more to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Maasai Mara. From time to time the pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below.
