A trip to Africa is not complete without a close and safe encounter with a big cat .....or two!
The Essential One Day Big Cat Safari
Experience the family life of cheetahs, lions and leopards at a camp in the heart of Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.
An action packed day trip commences early in the day where you will be met by our Driver at the designated meeting point at 9am on the edge of the National Park. From here you will be taken to the best viewing points to see the big cats in their natural habitat – the wild!
After our initial search, we break for morning tea under the trees on the plains. Our experienced network of Masai guides radio in the locations for the next search which takes us across the Park for 2 hours, chasing the mother cheetah with her cubs, or a sleeping lion pride. Lunch time is the time to meet up with other safari guests and compare notes and stories. A delicious picnic is enjoyed by all, after which we set off for our final search for a dusk sighting. Whilst this is the Big Cat Day Safari, you’ll enjoy the added bonus of a menage of other species as we traverse the Park.
Returning to the start point on the edge of the National Park at 7pm, dusty and tired, you will also be elated and in awe of the most magnificent animals on earth with whom you have shared this very special day.
The Big Cat One Day Tour is a small taste of Africa to whet your appetite for your next (and longer) visit with us.
