of plain game, black-manes lions, leopard and cheetah but also contains numerous elephant and virtually every type of wildlife to be found
(The Shining Golden Plains)
Awaken to the sounds of dawn; the roar of lions hangs in the distance as they rise in the cool before sunrise, as do the skulking whispers
of hyena in search of one last meal before sleep. 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. The breeze blows softly through his mane and you know it is a welcome respite from the heat of his fur in
the sun. The sun glides through the air, the lion begins to sleep, and you continue your adventure through the plains to witness the rest of
the Maasai Mara majesty.
OPTIONAL: Early morning Hot-Air Balloon flight or Maasai Cultural visits
