SVAFP 003: 2 Nights/3 Days Masai Mara Safari: Kenya Flying Safari
This Kenya flying safari or Kenya safari to Masai Mara Game Reserve is an ideal for business travelers or people on transit or on conference or seminar in Kenya. Masai Mara Game Reserve is world famous due to migration of large herds of wildebeests from Northern Serengeti in Tanzania.
You'll spend one full spent exploring the stunning Masai Mara scenery and in search of the 'The Big Five' – Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Buffalos and Rhinos. Besides these 'Big 5' there are many other wild animals and every single one is incredible to watch. They include the Giraffes, Zebras, Hippos, Baboons, Wildebeests, Warthog, Antelopes, Gazelles and different Bird species.
You'll stake out on the Mara River in look out for wildebeests as they amass in their thousands at banks of the river. Watch the climax of the migration journey that started in Serengeti, Tanzania. Each day is a constant challenge of survival. There are battles on the plains; with hyenas, lions, leopards, cheetahs and other predators on the prowl. And then there are the massive jaws of seemingly prehistoric crocodiles that patrol Mara River, waiting for their yearly feast to come.
The river crossing is treacherous as giant crocodiles lie underneath the water as the herds take the plunge of death. Those which escape the jaws of the crocodiles encounter fresh dangers as all kinds of predators lurk in the plains ahead, offering the most challenging battles of life and death and a race for the survival of the fittest.
