If the wilderness is magical by day, by night it promises nocturnal theatre on a magnificent scale. During the Night Game Drives, above you sparkles an unbelievable spangled canopy of stars, and around you wraps the soft velvet of the African night, punctuated by the rough, dry coughs of the lion, the cackling and whoop-whooping of the hyena, and the symphony of birdsong.
Nocturnal animals are animals that are more active at night than during the day. In many cases, these animals spend most of their daylight hours sleeping. They include hippos, lions, leopards, porcupines, civet cats, white-tailed mongoose, aardvarks and cape hares. To spot these animals, you have to experience a night game drive.
The night belongs to the hunters: the lions and the leopards. It’s also the only time when you may catch a glimpse of such elusive nocturnal creatures as aardvarks, cape hares, and bush babies. Best of all, your vehicle will be equipped with a powerful hand-held lamp, which can be used to sweep the bush for sightings of creeping shadows and gleaming eyes.
Unique to the conservancy experience, night game drives are not permitted within the boundaries of the national parks and reserves. So they’re the ultimate safari luxury, game-viewing extravaganza, and photo opportunity. Leaving the camp at 7 pm, you will be provided with hot drinks and warm ‘shukas’ (Maasai wraps) before setting off to encounter the creatures of the night.
Our night game drives in Mara Naboisho Conservancy among many other conservancies in Masai Mara are conducted by experienced Masai guides in our tailor-made 4×4 safari cruisers or land cruisers that are fitted with powerful lights for protection.
