Additionally, several caged baboons and leopards who faced difficulties of one sort or the other in the wild are held in cages there.

Day 5 Kisumu to Masai Mara

After a leisure breakfast at your hotel in Kisumu, depart overland to the Masai Mara Game Reserve-jewel of Kenya’s Game Park. The Masai Mara is Kenya’s finest and most outstanding wildlife sanctuary where gentle rolling grassland ensures animals are never out of sight. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well spread rainfall year round. The sensation of the great wildebeest migration between July and October is unparalleled.

The wildlife is far from being confined within the Reserve boundaries and an even larger area extends beyond the game Reserve. Centuries of close association with the wildlife has resulted in an almost symbiotic relationship where wildlife and Masai people live in peace with one another. After lunch, explore the Reserve on a late evening ‘Spice’ game drive. No matter how much you have thought about Africa, this is more than you expected—the big five-Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino and Cape buffalo are in abundance.

Overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge or similar

Day 6 Discover Masai Mara Game Reserve

Today we will be spending in the vast eco-system of the Mara searching for the big five and much more. You also have an optional balloon safari — Many call it a once in a life time experience, once you are up, you won’t want to come down, and once you land, champagne breakfast awaits you. Game viewing is great from the air with the opportunity for beautiful pictures.

The annual wildebeest migration is expected in the Masai Mara between July and early November. Millions of animals migrate to the Mara from Serengeti in search for fresh green pastures and water. It’s worth noting that every game drive is different from the other, and missing one is missing out on the fun.

Day 7 Explore Masai Mara Game Reserve

We rise early for breakfast and then depart for a full-day game drive. Wildlife in the Masai Mara is so abundant and so varied that you will find the early hours bring game sighting quite different from the drives later in the day. In particular, be alert for many of the bird species that inhabit this wilderness. We enjoy a picnic lunch out in the African bush and then resume our game drive. Dinner is at the lodge this evening.
