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 4 nights and 5 days, with unlimited game drives, night safaris, walking safaris,  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.

October is one of the best times to witness the Mara as the tourism pressure is low, and along with the occasional migration herd crossing,  the sighting of all other animals such as lions, elephants, antelopes, rhinos and cheetahs is high. If you want to indulge in exclusivity in the vast horizons of the Mara, then you will love the Safari with Suyash experience.

Your Accommodation

The Safari With Suyash- Mara Camp, is an intimate, luxury camp. The camp gives you a sense of tranquillity and peace, away from the crowds. The camp has all the modern amenities one can ask for in the middle of the African Bush. The beautifully designed Mess Tent offers delicious homemade delights, plenty of ice-cold drinks and a campfire for many a safari tale. Al-Fresco lunches can be enjoyed under the shade of ancient Sycamore Fig trees whilst the Olare Orok River bubbles past.
