What you'll do

On this experience we will visit Leruk hill for the walk to encounter elephants and other wildlife. The hill is 2.025 meter high. The hill is part of Siana conservation park, next to the Masai Mara Game reserve. Once you have reached the top of the mountain you will have a splendid view of the Maasai Mara game reserve & Siana park!

On the walk you will go all the way to the top and down again to encounter elephants on foot on the other side of the hill. Other animals that can be encountered during the walk are smaller game such as antelopes, zebras, giraffe.

The goal of this experience is to not only encounter an elephant on foot but also to learn more about the behavior of elephants. It is truly a magical experience to encounter these magnificent animals on foot!

The experience will be done from a safe distance, under the guidance of a true Maasai warrior who has spent many years in the bush learning about wildlife. Make sure you'll always listen to his advice. After all, safety is what is most important!

Day 2
We will take our guests on a game drive for an entire day in the Maasai Mara game reserve!
The game reserve is 1700 km2 big and to the Serengeti. The game reserve is a highlight of Kenya and unique due to the wildebeest migration. The best time to see the wildebeest migration will be July, August, September to October. On the game drive you will get the chance to see the big 5 such as the rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion and the leopard. What makes this game drive unique is that it will be guided by a true Maasai warrior who can spot the animals from 3 to 4 km without binoculars!

We like to focus on the smaller things as well such as seeing the small big 5, (Elephant shrink, Buffalo weaver, Antlion, Rhinoceros beetle and the Leopard tortoise).
On the game drive we will also see many birds and butterflies.

We will provide breakfast and a picknicklunch on the game drive. Dinner will be served at the camp itself. Make sure you bring your binoculars and camera along to take breathtaking pictures!

Dennis is amazing host. He is truly a Masaai Warrior who knows the forest well enough and we are so lucky to complete the big six! Yes, you can’t complete six without the warrior. Learnt so much about the forest, local tribes and the wildlife. Highly recommended!
