Big Cat Magic in the Masai Mara
The Masai Mara is one of those most special of wildlife places in the world which just keeps you wanting to come back for more and more. We know that from many regular clients who visit multiple times a year and it is one of those safari destinations which can deliver great wildlife encounters outside of the main high season, which runs from July to October. It is without doubt one of the best places in the world to see big cats and it is not unsual in the Mara to have regular sightings of the Big 3; Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. This June departure will see cheaper options available on international flights and less crowds in the park, so why not join us on this Big Cat safari at Mara Intrepids in June 2021.

FLIGHT FROM WILSON TO THE MARA
Feel the excitement of an early start and transfer to the famous Wilson Airport; your gateway to the Mara and because we have included a complimentary additional 15kg luggage allowance, you will not need to leave your cameras behind! On arrival in the Mara after the short flight you will be transferred to the beautiful Mara Intrepids. After settling in and enjoying a lovely lunch, you will set out on your first game drive into the Masai Mara reserve.
7 FULL DAYS OF BIG CAT ACTION IN THE MARA
After your early morning wake up call, including tea or coffee and cookies we head out early for our first morning drive. An early start, however by far the best time to catch predators, such as lion and leopard at their most active. We will be out all morning, taking breakfast in the bush and returning to camp in time for lunch. After lunch you will have time for a quick snooze, a dip in the pool or simply relax by the river with a book, before we meet again at around 3pm for tea & pancakes before our afternoon game drive
FINAL MORNING GAME DRIVE AND FLIGHT BACK TO NAIROBI
Sadly, this is the morning of our last drive where we will spend the last few hours on the African plains. We will return to camp giving you time to quickly shower and freshen up before your bags are collected from your rooms. After checking out there will be time for lunch at camp before you then take a transfer to the airstrip and take the 50-minute afternoon return flight back to Nairobi. Onward transfers to either the international airport or a nearby hotel (room costs not included)

Our Clients Say About Us
How do you describe being on safari in the African Bush ? That is hard because it is not just about seeing animals in their natural environment ; it is about experiences, feelings , smells and all se things that fill the senses. We stayed in a tented camp and this is the only way to truly experience Africa, hearing the sounds of Hyena and Lion whilst you lay in your bed at night. Making sure you get excellent guides is key to getting the right experience and we were so lucky in this respect. They impart so much of their in - depth knowledge of the wildlife and ensure you get wonderful sightings of some amazing animals and birds but with care and consideration for their environment You just have to go there ! I have given Wildlife Trails repeat business since I first used them. They are a small company but with a wealth of experience and customer service. They are prepared to give a lot of time in helping to put together a holiday itinerary that will tick all the boxes. In addition their quoted costs are very fair and not over inflated like some operators. I recommended friends to use them , which they did, and they were not disappointed.
