Highlights

This 4 night / 5 day Maasai Mara Big Cat safari includes stays at two small eco-camps located inside exclusive wildlife conservancies in the Maasai Mara eco-system (also known as Masai Mara) which are reserved solely for the camps’ guests. Game drives (shared) are in open-sided 4×4 safari vehicles, with experienced Maasai safari guides, to look for the Big Cats in the park and the conservancies. Night game drives offered at both camps allow you the opportunity to be out when the Big Cats are most active.
