The park is home to the Big Five: lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhino.
The morning dew rises into the air with the sun. Step into the wild world of the Maasai Mara once again to scour the endless plains for its famous and stunning life. The road bumps and tumbles along while you glide over the pebbled throughway. Warthogs scamper through the grass while the dust from the vehicle sparkles in the sunshine behind you. The guide stops, points into the distance where lions laze in the risen sun.
The male’s mane almost blends with the grass, his deep eyes brown and fierce. He yawns in the exhaustion of the post meal heat, his teeth sharp and intimidating.
