The finale to the Big Cat safari I guided in February/March was Mara Plains Camp. Both the frequency of big cat sightings and the quality of the action was exceptional. I saw lions from 6 different prides plus a nomadic male, 7 individual cheetah, and 5 leopards. We saw leopard, cheetah, lions, and spotted hyena on hunts and some of the best action was after dark. Because Mara Plains is in the private Olare Orok Conservancy instead of in the Mara Reserve its possible to go off road, night drive, and have most sightings all to yourself! It provides the best big cat safari experience that I have found.
