Game Drives

For the early birds – Day game drives

Enjoy the fresh morning breeze, the break of dawn and the bush coming to life in the early morning hours of the day. Our staff will give you a wake-up call at your discretion while hot coffee and tea is already brewing. You can return to the lodge for a breakfast after your morning safari, or you can continue exploring the Masai Mara National Reserve and the Siana Conservancy with a bush breakfast and picnic lunch to have a full day in the park.

The Siana Conservancy allows our guests to view the stunning wildlife without interference from other vehicles.

For the nocturnal safari guest – night game drives

As night falls, the stars light up brightly in the velvety blue darkness of the Masai Mara and a spectacular nocturnal theatre begins. It is the hour of the big cat predators who get ready to hunt but also of rare nocturnal animals such as aardvarks, honey badgers and genets. The experience of a night game drive is one that cannot be missed – the smells are stronger, the sounds are reduced to the occasional calls and roars of the predators and even the most frequently seen animals take on another appearance in the light of the moon and stars.

Your nocturnal adventure can be booked upon arrival at our reception.
