DAY 2: MAASAI MARA FULL DAY

After lunch, you will have adequate time for a siesta, followed later by an evening game drive in the national reserve. Alternatively, instead of a morning and afternoon game drive, you can opt for a full day game drive. This is especially recommended during the wildebeest migration season.
