    Click here to expand

    You have three full days to enjoy all that this fantastic area of the Mara has to offer. Explore the conservancy on shared game drives in search of the resident game including the big cats. You will also have the opportunity to go on walking safaris and late evening drives, neither of which are possible in the main Mara Reserve. Walking safaris are a fantastic way to explore the bush as you will be able to experience the smaller aspects of the bush which you would usually miss in a vehicle (payable extra and can be arranged direct). Late evening drives are also a must on any safari as this is when the big cats start to hunt. The bush is a completely different place at night and the sights and sounds make for a very interesting drive! The Mara North Conservancy is one of the most densely populated wildlife areas within the Masai Mara Ecosystem. Throughout the year great numbers of herbivores such as elephants, giraffes, zebra and antelope search the area for water; predators are never far away! Huge hippos and large crocodiles can be found lazing around in the waters of the Mara River. The Mara North Conservancy is also home to the famous Leopard Gorge! Five prides of lions, seven cheetah and at least six leopards have made the conservancy their homeland making your chances of spotting them very likely.

You hear the indri before you see them and waking up to their songs of communication in the early hours of the morning with the mist still hugging the rainforest canopy will be a highlight of your trip to Madagascar. The best time to see the indri is early morning when they make their distinctive morning group communication calls. Other lemurs which you may spot here during the day are the red-bellied lemur, brown lemur and lesser bamboo lemur. Whilst the brown mouse lemur, greater dwarf lemur, eastern woolly lemur, sportive lemur and the aye (very rare) are mainly spotted at night.
