‘Sun-downers' on the plains of the Mara
The ‘sun-downer' is an essential part of safari life and dates back to the time of the great safaris of the 1920's when elegant cocktails were always served while watching the spectacle of the African sunset. Timed to begin as the sun begins its descent, the Mara Serena Sun-downer begins with a gentle evening game drive, arriving at the sundowner site just as the evening sky turns gold-pink. Usually, a campfire will be lit, a full bar set up alongside a ring of safari chairs, and cocktail snacks served while a guitarist sings softly in the background. As night falls, you will be driven back to the lodge in time for dinner. This is an experience not to be missed.
