Game Drives

Game drives (day & night) take place in some of the Mara’s most coveted vehicles. Each of the four Toyota Land Cruisers is open-sided, canopied and customised for photographers (fold-down screens, raised roofs, photographic bars, multi-plug invertors). With just four to six guests each, the Cruisers also have fully-stocked fridges stocked with drinks and snacks. No two days are the same on safari. Game drives typically start at sunrise, returning for lunch and depart again in the mid-afternoon before returning just after sunset. However, very often we will go out all day, deep into the Reserve or Conservancy with a packed breakfast and lunch. One visit per guest per 3-night stay.

Walking Safaris

Participants on a walking safari become part of the environment. Guided by a knowledgeable naturalist, an armed guide and two Masai warriors in full regalia (to frighten off the lion!). A full safari breakfast/ brunch is served on the river bank with the delightful hippo for company. Guests have to fill out liability forms. Children under 12 are not permitted to join this excursion.

Bird Walks

A specialist guides walkers through the camp pointing out various species of birds (70 have been sighted so far). Walks last for approximately one and a half hours.

Balloon Safaris

Balloon safaris in Kenya are among the many exciting activities in the Masai Mara. Depart at 5:45 a.m. for a balloon ride over the Mara plains, to float majestically over the teeming herds of wildlife. You will land on the Mara plains and have a sparkling wine breakfast to celebrate this unusual experience. This safari lasts for approximately 1.5 hours. Guests have to fill out liability forms.

Fishing Safari

A 40-minute flight brings one to the second largest fresh water lake in the world and the source of the River Nile – Lake Victoria. Fish for Nile Perch, some of which weigh over 200 lbs, look-out for the myriad of bird-life, or just spend time watching the spectacular scenery from your boat. The rare spotted-necked otter is also to be found here.
