The game reserve abounds with birdlife since close to about four hundred and fifty two odd species have been recorded.

Day 6

On safari in Maasai Mara

Take another sunup game drive after muffins and coffee. Keep in mind, each game drive is distinct, and since the camps are small, the drives can be tailored to the group's preferences. Your driver and guide can always stop for an hour or so if you come across a lioness on a hunt. Return to lodge for a late brunch; then keep a look out for game, read or just kick back. After lunch and a siesta, set off on your late afternoon game drive. At the end of the drive, you'll stop for a drink and watch night fall over the Masai Mara.
