As time winds down with less than a week in the Masai Mara I continue to take in the beauty that surrounds me. I have enjoyed my time learning the ins and outs of the park and the many camps and lodges located within the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The most memorable time spent here was with the many animals. I have had the pleasure of following them from land and from above, floating along in the sky.
When planning your East African Safari there are many choices for camps and lodges for your stay in the Masai Mara. A favorite of mine is Fig Tree Camp, located along the Talek River. Fig Tree Camp is a wonderful place to rest and relax while on safari. Your stay will be warm and cozy in one of the luxury tents along the banks of the river or in a chalet mingled among the trees and beautiful flowers that surround the camp.
The staff at Fig Tree Camp are kind and welcoming; they are always there to cater to your every need. Before you set out on your game drive enjoy your morning tea watching the animals from the lookout built into the huge FigTree in the middle of the camp.
Amazing sunrises can be viewed daily in Hot Air Balloon flights available at Fig Tree Camp, followed by a wonderful bush breakfast in the open Savannah this will be an experience that you will never forget.
You may need to swim a few laps in the pool to work off the great food you’ll be eating. Four course meals for your delight will keep you fueled for your busy days. Evening campfires with new friends will create lasting memories, talking of the days exciting activities and sightings.
I am excited to head to Nairobi to visit the Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Manor, for sure my next blog post! A big thank you to my readers who have been following along on my journey to becoming an East African Specialist. My journey will continue as I make my way back to Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. Keep following me as I share my travels and experiences in East Africa
