You should be sure to have a hearty breakfast today, because afterward you will enter the Maasai Mara National Reserve for an absolutely ideal African safari adventure.  Here are the grasslands, wildlife and adventure that Westerners have come to associate with a safari.  During the afternoon’s game drive you will see jackals, lions, wildebeests, zebras and many other species.  You will also meet Kenya’s nomadic people, the Maasai, and get an insight into their lives as cattle-herding nomads.  Tonight you’ll stay at the Mara Sopa Lodge, set in expansive and mature wooded gardens. The lodge has an ethnic design that incorporates traditional round buildings with thatched roofs for its guest rooms and public areas.

Day 4 Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives at Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Between the months of July and October, the Mara is famous for the Great Migration, when awe-inspiring numbers of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle and wildebeest move into the area.  When westerners think of African safari tours, this part of Kenya is the place they imagine - golden grassland plains dotted with acacia and wide-open savannahs roamed by wildebeest, zebras, lions and jackals.   Your camp has great wooden decks with large verandahs for guests to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place around the watering hole at the camp.

If you’re able to visit between July and October, you may be able to witness the Great Migration, when huge herds of Thomson’s gazelles, wildebeests and zebras travel in mass from the Serengeti.  It is an unforgettable experience that is not to be missed.  No matter when you visit, you will also have a chance to take a “walking safari”, or visit a local tribal village if you wish.  You will learn about the Maasai way of life and how they have managed to retain their semi-nomadic customs even in today’s modern world, when so much of their world is at risk.  After all these adventures, you will be more than ready for a mid-day nap, take a dip in the pool or laze on the veranda to escape the heat of the day.
