The Maasai Mara, together with Tanzania's Serengeti form Africa's most famous wildlife park - the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Maasai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration, traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost an essential experience.
After breakfast, you will be met by your safari guide and begin your safari. You will depart for the Maasai Mara, where you will arrive in time for lunch and check-in at the Mara Serena lodge. After lunch, you will indulge yourselves in game drives till late in the afternoon, when you will return to the lodge for dinner and your overnight-stay.
Secreted deep within the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate safari destination. Set high on a bush-cloaked hill, embraced by arcing vistas and washed by a sea of richly rolling grasslands, it stands centre-stage to one of Africa's most exquisite wildlife arenas, and has a ringside seat for the greatest wildlife show on Earth - the legendary migration of the wildebeest. Drawing its inspiration from the traditional Maasai cultural motif of a cluster of domed, mud-coloured huts, encircled by a "Boma" of brushwood, the Mara Serena offers a rare blend of raw African splendour and sumptuous sophistication. The essentially ethnic décor also draws on a vibrant colour-palette of sun-burst colours, embellished by a unique selection of Maasai art - to create the look and feel of a traditional bush encampment. The lodge features individual rooms, each with their own balcony and view of eternity, a sky-blue swimming pool and a spectacular restaurant, overlooking a water hole where a fantasia of creatures assembles to drink.
