Game Drives: Guests will be escorted around the reserve in a 4×4 fully equipped safari vehicle with professionally trained guides and drivers. Each day in the Masai Mara is unpredictable and unique, so there is no telling what adventures you may come across. However, you will certainly have the opportunity to come face to face with some iconic wildlife residents, such as lions, elephants and buffalos. Your guides will try their hardest to bring you closer to the more elusive wildlife animals, such as leopards and rhinos, who often camouflage themselves within the bush and trees. In order to receive the best possible experience and catch the best sighting of your favourite wildlife animals, guests will set off early for a morning game drive.
Night Game Drives: Each 4×4 safari vehicle is equipped with a night vision camera that also picks heat signatures, which then displays infrared images of each animal you encounter on the screens located on the back of the seats – this truly is an experience you do not want to miss! Explore a different side of the reserve as it comes alive with nocturnal animals. Not only will you get to see the iconic animals such as lions, leopards and buffalos, but you will also get to encounter some elusive animals like the silver-backed jackal, hyena or even a banded mongoose.
