The famously black-maned Mara lions are possibly the stars of the Mara show, but cheetah, elephant, kongoni, topi, Thompson’s gazelle, waterbuck, hyena, and primates are all here too. Birding is also excellent. Maasai Mara is the northerly end of the Great Migration; that great primeval surge of wildebeest, zebra and antelope that sweeps in from Serengeti as grass in Serengeti starts to fail. As it is naturally, they are tracked by the predators who pick off the weak, the stragglers and the young. The crossing over to Kenya is normally in July but the whole episode depends on the forage in the two parks. Afternoon game drive.                                        Dinner and overnight at Mara Serena Lodge or similar.
