All our guests are invited to enjoy two game drives per day or full day. Game drives can take place in the morning, afternoon. So please let us know your preference. Alternatively, you can book an exclusive game drive (up to six guests in a vehicle) at an extra cost. A game drive through the Masai Mara National Reserve is a voyage of discovery that promises to transport you into a whole new realm. This is your chance to observe creatures great and small against the backdrop of a pristine wilderness.
Often awe-inspiring, always enchanting, a game drive allows you to be part of the great wilderness landscape: to breath it: to smell it: to live it. Managed in cooperation with its ancient guardians, the Maasai, where the savannah is yours, and where you will often find yourselves as the only spectators to such events as lions at play, wallowing hippos, wandering elephants, browsing giraffes and careering herds of zebra. During the season, you can also witness one of the world’s most stunning natural events, the annual migration of over one million wildebeest and their attendant wildlife cast.
Our custom-built six-person safari vehicles offer comfort, panoramic viewing, dedicated safari guides, refreshments on-board (soft drinks and local beer) and radio-links for fast location of game. Traditionally, game-drives take place early morning (you are woken with tea and arrive back in time for breakfast) or late afternoon/early evening. They can also incorporate picnic breakfasts or lunches and evening sundowners in the bush. The unique ecosystem hosts over 95 species of mammals and over 550 resident and migratory birds.
