Our excellently trained guides and drivers will ensure a memorable game drive in specially equipped safari Land Rover vehicles stocked with binoculars, books and a cooler box. We also offer a packed picnic lunch for guests who want to go for a leisurely game drive.
Hot Air Balloon Safaris
A hot air balloon ride is one of the most amazing ways to experience the Maasai Mara. Balloon safaris are ideally suited to the Maasai Mara as the open, treeless plains allow many of the animals to be seen from the air and viewed from an altitude of several thousand feet. The savannah scenery is breathtaking. Balloon safaris take off just before dawn so that you are high above the plains in time for sunrise. Flights last for approximately one hour drifting wherever the air current stakes you. Once back on terra firma, the flight is celebrated with a glass of champagne and a breakfast in the bush.
A selection of long walks on the nature trails are on offer within the greater Mara area along the periphery of the park. The walks focus on the wildlife, bird-life, plant-life as well as topography that the Maasai Mara is famous for. The duration of these walks is approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours covering a distance of 9 – 15 km, and include a packed lunch and game drives en-route to and from the walking safari location.
Sarova Mara Game Camp has the rare distinction of being located next to a traditional Maasai Village, known as “The Isokon Maasai Cultural Village”, a true showcase of Maasai culture. Guests can interact with the Maasai people and watch them work their crafts like beadwork and wood carving.
