Day 13 - Maasai Mara
Safari Activities at Masai Mara
Wake up early with coffee and rusks for a morning game drive or bush walk with expert rangers.
You will visit both the Mara North Conservancy as well as the adjoining Masai Mara National Reserve, and can do either morning, evening or all day game drives. Please note that viewing the main migration river crossings requires a full day out as they are located some way from camp. Inquire about a Hot Air Balloon Safari over the Masai Mara for a once in a lifetime Safari Experience! (at your own cost).
Take the time to leave the car behind and enjoy the small things – animal tracks, flowers and micro-ecosystems. All the guides are Bronze or Silver level Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association certified, and simply enjoy sharing their knowledge and can take you on a delightful ramble from camp.
Finally, a visit to the Masai Mara region would not be complete with a visit to a Maasai village, which delivers a unique insight into this age-old culture. Utterly authentic, the village visit promises unrivalled photo- opportunities. It begins with a traditional welcome from the Maasai morans (warriors), who will escort you from your vehicle and into the brushwood enclosure. Typically, the village elders will be on hand to welcome you and the young morans will demonstrate the traditional kindling of fire. Several long notes will then be sounded on an eland horn. This summons the Maasai from the surrounding villages to come and meet the guests. In the meantime you will be invited to enter a traditional Maasai home, learn about Maasai daily life, enjoy dancing and singing displays and visit the community’s own handicrafts market.
In addition, you may also choose from a host of optional activities such as Out of Africa picnics, Life of a Hunter/Gatherer Walks, Seedball Dispersal, Traditional Canvas Baths, interactive visit to Masai Warrior School,
Bush Spa Treatments etc. at an additional price during your stay.
