A safari game drive in Masai Mara is an adventure that entails viewing wildlife in game-rich spots in the Maasai Mara. The drives give you an opportunity to view wild animals in their natural habitat as they go about their daily activities. Enjoy the African wildlife spectacle in the comfort of a 4×4 open-sided safari vehicle that accommodates 4 to 6 people, a sure way to give you that classical safari feeling.
The abundance of wildlife and the spectacular landscapes of the Masai Mara make a game drive a must-have experience for anyone on a Masai Mara safari from Nairobi. With gently rolling hills and wide-open plains, this is the quintessential African safari experience. You can expect to encounter large numbers of animals all year-round, with big herds of elephants, buffaloes, cheetahs, lions and other plains game.
If you’re taking your African safari vacation between July and November, you might experience nature’s greatest spectacle, the Wildebeest Migration, as it unfolds. During this period, over two million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles embark on a cyclical movement through the Mara, driven by rainfall and the subsequent availability of grazing.
Game drives are typically conducted in the early mornings, late afternoon or at night since these are the coolest times of the day when most animals are more active. Game drives may last from a couple of hours to the whole day, with a picnic breakfast and lunch.
