DAY 4: ACACIA HOUSE, MARA NORTH CONSERVANCY

Full day of shared activities in camp vehicle. During the first hours of the morning, the savannah is filled with a special animation. This is when the larger predators hunt for their food, before the temperature becomes too hot for any excessive physical activity.

The colours of the landscape are also more accentuated, and help us to take great photographs.
