Join Life Nature Safaris for this affordable and carefully planned January to March 2018 visit. The trip will use the Mara Intrepids camp which enjoys the most spectacular location as its base.
This tour comes at a time Masai Mara has just been voted Africa’s leading National park during the 2017 World Travel Awards. The awards recognizes the leading lights of African tourism, and serve to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry.
Masai Mara is generally very busy with safari goers keen to follow wildebeest migration from July to end of October.
What most people don’t know is that with the wildebeests gone, January, February and March are some of the best times to visit. The park and hotels are more quiet-meaning more space to yourself and better rates.
The October-November rains have just ended, and the landscape has some low greenery. In addition to the classic big 5- the Lions, Leopards, Elephants, rhino and buffalo, Life Nature travelers will explore the Mara in search of lion cubs, and an opportunity to see cheetah cubs on hunting lessons from their mothers. Young gazelles – the cheetah most preferred prey during this time are plenty. It is the perfect time for keen photographers.
Our professional guides leading the trips are patient and ready to work long hours to provide you with the best photo opportunity. You can expect to be shooting before dawn and well after sunset as we capture not only wildlife, but landscapes and portraits.
You will interact with the local Masai culture whose traditional way of life is under threat as Kenya struggles to remain a major player in African politics and economics.
NOTE- Morning and evening lights will be great for that magical sunrise and sunset shots against ancient lone acacia trees. Bird life is also great.
This is the time for the Mara to rejuvenate. It is the perfect time to visit for those who wants to rewind and to discover nature’s hidden secrets.
Luxury Tented Camp
The Mara Intrepids camp enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the world’s best known wilderness. Located on the banks of Talek and Olare Orok rivers, the camp offers cool riverine forest filled with bird song and butterflies while hippos, buffaloes, hyenas and plains game are ever-present.
Beyond the Camp lies the Masai Mara’s four main game-viewing areas including Paradise plains, and the popular Notch pride area – both terrific game viewing grounds within easy reach – made famous by the BBC’s Big Cat Diaries and Disney’s African Cats series.
