Nocturnal Animals

What are Nocturnal Animals?

Nocturnal animals are animals which 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.

Night game drive experiences are not attained inside the confines of the Maasai Mara National Reserve hence guests who wish to go on night drives are advised to book their stay in one of our camps in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy where we conduct successful night game drives.

Our night game drives in Mara Naboisho are conducted by experienced Masai guides in our tailor made 4×4 safari cruisers or land cruisers that are fitted with powerful lights for proper sightseeing at night.
