You spend a total 3 nights in Masai Mara National Reserve home to Africa’s big cats – lions, cheetahs, leopards amongst other wildlife including but not limited to bat eared foxes Masai giraffe, impala, spotted hyena, baboons, warthogs, jackals, hartebeests, zebras, wildebeest, elephants, buffaloes, hippos and crocodiles.
