Day 2: Karen Blixen Camp / Masai Mara (B/L/D)

The early mornings are one of the best times to view the animals as this is when they are their most active before the heat of the day sets in. You can either have your breakfast before you depart this morning, or on your return to the camp.

The Camp has a wonderful spa, so you can either watch the pod of resident hippos by the river or treat yourself to a luxury spa treatment.
Later in the afternoon set off on a game drive with some drinks, ready for a sundowner out in the bush. Back at camp dinner preparation is in full swing and there is enough time to have a hot shower before the first course is served.

Visit the Mara River and ask your guide to show you the regular Migration river crossing routes. As you arrive back at camp after a long day there may be time for a quick swim in the camp's pool or a walk before the sun starts to set on your busy day in the Masai Mara.
