Soar above Kenya’s open savannah grassland broken up by rocky outcrops, small valleys and clusters of acacia trees and forests around the rivers. Be enthralled at the wonder of the Masai Mara Reserve and expect to see zebra and giraffe, Thomson’s gazelle, hyena, rhino, hippo, elephant, lion and leopard, just to name a few, then explore by a private helicopter flight, or contemplate fishing vast lakes, or trek on foot, horse or camel with mobile camps into the unknown. You’ll be entranced by a full day of game activities within the Northern area of the Serengeti National Park in your Singita open-sided 4×4 vehicle. Then, at night, you’ll relax at Singita Mara River Camp in your luxury tent. Your last five days will be spent in splendid luxury.
