The Masai Mara is famous for its big cats. Lions, cheetahs and leopards and are all seen regularly here. So this is a must for big cat lovers!
â€‹If you could chose just one safari destination, you could do no better than the Masai Mara. Famous for the abundance of lion, the annual wildebeest migration, and the Maasai tribe with their distinctive custom and dress, it is without a doubt one of Africa's most famous safari destinations.
This holiday gives you four full days in which to explore the national park and surrounding region.
In the company of an expert guide, you'll observe and learn about the wildlife, large and small.
We've based this trip on staying at Governor's Camp, which is well-known for being host to the BBC series Big Cat Diary. So come and meet the Marsh Pride, Olive the leopard and Shakira the cheetah - if they're feeling sociable!
