Destination: Masai Mara, Kenya
On the banks of the Talek River in the heart of the Masai Mara lies the Mara Explorer Tented Camp. One of the best Kenya safari camps, it has a prime position at the confluence of the best game viewing areas in the Mara. The experienced Maasai guides will take guests out on game drives in search of Giraffe, Elephants and more.
This Masai Mara camp lies in the path that the Wildebeest take during the Great Migration between July and September, ensuring great game viewing from the lodge itself. The rest of the year there is still plenty of animals to be seen, especially predators such as Lion. One of the most thrilling experiences is going on an early morning Hot Air Balloon safari. Watch as the sun changes the landscape from monochrome to colour and spot thousands of animals dotted on the plains below.
Extend an early morning or evening game drive with a tasty breakfast out on the savannahs. Go on a nature walk with the Maasai guide and learn about their culture and how to behave around wild animals. The lodge can even arrange for guests to visit a traditional Maasai home called a Manyatta.
