Safari with Suyash to Masai Mara, Kenya

Masai Mara is one of the most iconic wildlife destinations on the planet famed for its open savannah grasslands and density of animals. It is home to over 90 species of mammals including Africa’s Big 5: Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant along with a myriad of other species such as the Cheetah, Giraffe, Gazelle, Hippo, Bat Eared Fox, Jackal, Hyena, Crocodile, Ostrich and much more. Masai Mara also boasts of having over 450 species of birds, making it a paradise for any wildlifer. 

 

 

Mara Itinerary

Our tour will be for 5 nights and 6 days, with unlimited game drives, night safaris, walking safaris, daily bush breakfasts G&T sundowners and an experiential picnic lunch and bush dinners along with hands-on learning of wildlife, tracking, photography, and lots of fun, laughter and adventure. And what better place to do this than in one of the most iconic locations of the world- Masai Mara.

May is one of the best times to witness the Mara in lush green conditions, the big cat activity is at an all time high and as it is not a migration time, the tourism pressure is quite low and the sighting of all other animals such as lions, elephants, antelopes, rhinos and cheetah, very high. If you want to be the only vehicle at a wildlife sighting, or to look out over the vast horizons of the Mara without other vehicles in sight, then you will love the Safari with Suyash experience.

You can arrive without a camera, and just take back memories and experiences.
