A game drive in Maasai Mara, when you don’t spot any big cats, looks something like this. You will most likely see a herd of Impalas standing, normally with their backs to the sun, so that they can shield their heads in the shadow cast by their body.

When you book a fly-in safari package with Mara Serena lodge, you get a bush breakfast by the Hippo pool and Hippos squabbling over a piece o water body is a very normal occurrence that you may see. And there are always the African Elephants who make your day. In this case, we saw a herd of Elephants cross our path – they were on their way back from the Mara river to the savannah.
