Viewing from the air is very popular, and hot-air balloon excursions offer a quiet birds-eye view of the magnificent vistas of the Mara.
Safari overland adventures can include a trip to Lake Nakuru which is one of the Rift Valley’s soda lakes and well known for millions of flamingos, bird sanctuary and Big Five spotting.
The Maasai Mara is also home to other wildlife apart from the traditional Big Five like giraffe, grey jackals, baboons, foxes, hyena, impala, warthogs, and hartebeest. Over 450 species of birdlife is known of which almost 60 are birds of prey so a birdwatchers dream!
Once you have exhausted game viewing, a visit to one of the traditional Maasai villages is a highlight where one can actually live with the tribe in a homestay environment, overnighting in huts, participating in food preparation and even taking cattle out to pasture!
