With a little luck, you may spot leopards trying to stay out of sight, biding their time until nightfall.

Meanwhile, discover abundant birdlife and learn to identify bird calls, bills, tracks, habitats and plumage patterns.

At night, your family watches a display of traditional Maasai song and dance. Consider taking an optional hot air balloon safari, an amazing way to start the day — and an experience your family will never forget. End your stay in the Mara with a farewell dinner and say goodbye to your new friends.
