This morning you will be transferred back to the airstrip for the quick flight to the Kenya border crossing; after passing through customs on the ground, you will be met by your Kenyan pilot on the other side for the short flight directly into the Masai Mara Game Reserve, where your exclusive guide from Ngare Serian Camp will be waiting to meet you.
No other place on earth compares with the multitudes of wild animals found in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, part of the vast Serengeti eco-system spanning Kenya and Tanzania. During the summer months (approximately July–September), the Great Migration comprised of 1.5 million wildebeest and several hundred thousand zebra make the Maasai Mara their home. Here herds of zebra, wildebeest, and topi mingle on the short grass plains keeping an eye out for numerous predators, including lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. Maasai giraffe and impala graze in the woodlands and hippos and crocodiles bask along the shores of the Talek and Mara Rivers. The Masai Mara is also home to one of the great fighting tribes of Africa, the Maasai whose culture is both fascinating and truly unique.
