A full day game viewing in Kenya's finest wildlife park in search of Africa's Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this park. Mara offers fantastic orange-tinged sunsets that make for spectacular photos.

Much game are coming at your door step in the park leaving you with only option of counting your blessings that nature holds for you. Following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in southwest Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal it is typical open savannah with a mass of amazing wildlife. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common.

The ultimate action here is without a doubt the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August when millions of these grazers move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October for the new life circle to begin after a life threatening move across mara river and talek river.
