We are delighted to repeat one of our most popular tours with this small group wildlife tour visiting the game rich Maasai Mara in Kenya, one of Africa’s most famous reserves and home to a year round abundance of predators. Where the Mara River provides the setting for the annual wildebeest and zebra migration and a reserve made famous by the BBC’s ‘Big Cat Diary’ and numerous other wildlife documentaries. The area provides copious photographic opportunities and an excellent chance for viewing lion, cheetah and is also a great place to see leopard. Whilst our focus will be predominantly on the ‘big cats’ we will also have plenty of time to photograph a rich diversity of other game, including elephant, buffalo, hippo and many antelope and bird species.
This safari is held just after the high season after after several months of occupation by the wildebeest Thus providing short grasses across much of the area and before the onset of the short rains. Providing a more economical and generally much quieter time to experience the Mara and good for either the first time visitor or the more seasoned safari connoisseur. The itinerary is designed as such to ensure plenty of time in each area and providing an unhurried safari experience. In addition, focusing on providing a spacious photographic and game viewing experience.
