Breakfast by the hippo pool
The real ‘Out of Africa'
For the ultimate Mara experience leave the lodge after an early morning cup of tea and enjoy an exhilarating game drive in the crisp morning air. This is one of the best times for game-viewing and the ideal time to catch the plains game on the move, the matriarchal elephant herds, the lion prides and all the other wildlife in which the Mara abounds.
Arriving on the banks of the world-famous Mara River you will be met by a traditionally clad Maasai warrior who will lead you along the river where countless hippos wallow.
Reaching a clearing you will be offered a glass of chilled sparkling wine or fresh juice before being shown to your table, which is located in a shady grove immediately alongside the hippo pool.
Beneath the trees you will find a full display of fruit, patisserie and cereals, and a line of chefs ready to cook eggs, bacon, sausages and chicken to your specification.
Breakfast is a leisurely experience and only when you are ready will the Maasai warrior guide you back along the riverbank to your vehicle. You can then experience another game drive on your way back to the lodge – or choose to extend your game drive – the choice is yours.
