Day 2:  On safari in the Mara

A full day of game viewing awaits you after an optional hot air balloon flight over the Mara at a cost of 450$PP, We highly recommend this flight,what you see from up there is worth the money, and we advise to book it during the booking of your trip to avoid dissapointments when you get at the Mara as space is rarely available due to too many bookings during the migration season. You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch at a hippo pool in the bush and afterwards you’ll have the option of continuing with your safari,and to crown it,an option of visiting a traditional Maasai village where these traditional people will showcase their rich culture at a cost of 20$PP.Overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge or similar lodge {Breakfast,Lunch,Dinner}

Day 3:  Maasai Mara National Reserve to Nairobi

You’ll be up early to make the most of the best time of day for game viewing. Predators are winding down from a night of hunting and prey start to relax and become more active as the sun gets higher.  For this reason your last game drive will be before a late breakfast that you’ll take at your lodge.  After checking out you’ll be driven back to Nairobi where your Maasai Mara expedition concludes. {Breakfast}
