MASAI MARA: Up, close and quite personal with the big cats with Nigel Archer safaris
Following on from the success of the Great Wildebeest Migration Luxury Seasonal Camp launched earlier last year to allow guests to feast on the majestic annual wildebeest migration, Nigel Archer Safaris have launched their Big Cats Luxury Seasonal Camp. Guests can experience the best predator sightings with the Big Cats game package, available from January 20 through to March 10, 2020.
These Seasonal Camps offer authentic yet luxurious safari – combining canvas tents with ensuite bathrooms, hot showers and flushing toilets, experienced guides, and fine dining. Guests receive a first-hand ‘Out of Africa’ experience that is exclusive and tailor-made to be as active or relaxed as the guest’s desire
This is the greatest opportunity to see the iconic big cats, in their prime due to the superb climate and conditions which provides excellent visibility of the cats in the short grass after the short seasonal rains. The short green grass attracts thousands of grazing animals; hence predators too. Cheetah, leopard and lion have excellent ability to camouflage themselves in the long grasses; however, the seasonal low grass makes the big cats easier to spot, enabling guests to encounter intimate and longer sightings. The camp is ideally located in the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve, making the area in and around camp an idyllic location for game viewing and a photographer’s paradise.
Nigel Archer Safaris offer one of the greenest forms of tourism ensuring everything used in and around camp is eco-friendly. The camp uses solar power to reduce its carbon footprint; re-fillable water bottles for within camp and on game drives; and high-quality produce is locally sourced from Kenya wherever possible. Once the safari season is over, the camp is packed up, leaving nothing behind, as if it was never there, allowing nature to reclaim it.
