    Drive to your safari ranch in Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. As the sun draws low, enjoy a locally sourced dinner under the open African sky.

    Take to the bush on game drives tracking big cats, elephants and endangered black rhino. Watch closely for indigenous northern species, such as the Beisa oryx; Somali ostrich; reticulated giraffe; Gravy’s zebra; and the unusual long-necked gerenuk, which stands on its hind legs to feed. Look, too, for Grant’s gazelles, dik-dik, elands and impala as they, along with majestic leopards and lions, roam the vast landscape. You may also enjoy game viewing by horseback or search for nocturnal species on a night game drive. Lewa Wilderness Lodge, Full board

Patient tracking may reveal leopards retrieving kills from acacia branches, or elephants protecting their young from opportunistic lions. With 583 square miles supporting huge numbers of bird and mammal species, game viewing is never dull in the Mara.

    Delve deeper into the Mara with a final day of game drives. Today affords a final chance to sight the crafty species that may have eluded you on this epic journey. Later, pay a private visit to a Maasai village to learn about local customs and daily life, or enjoy a guided nature walk with the camp’s resident naturalist. andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, Full board
