DAY 3:-Nairobi –Samburu Game Reserve

Breakfast will be served at your town Hotel. After breakfast you will proceed by road to Samburu Game reserve arriving at your camp in time for lunch.

Samburu Game Reserve is within the land of the colorful Samburu people who are close cousins of the Masai. Scenically and faunally dramatic, for most of the year Samburu is sure under the unsympathetic equatorial sun. This arid wilderness is a place where the waters of the Ewaso N’giro attract a profusion of game. This beautiful area is known for its large herds of elephants and elusive leopards as well as northern endemic species including the gerenuk Somali Ostrich, Beisa Oryx and reticulated giraffe.

First afternoon game drive before you return in the evening at your camp for dinner and overnight.

You may decide to spend the whole day in the reserve with picnic lunches or enjoy a morning game drive and return to the camp for a leisurely lunch and time to relax before going out game viewing again in the cooler hours of the afternoon.

The Samburu people are some of the friendliest in Kenya. Originally a nomadic tribe, the Samburu today still embraces their nomadic culture. They live north of the equator in the geographically fascinating Samburu County of Northern Kenya and are closely related to the Maasai tribe who speak a similar language, derived from Maa.

Evening return to your camp for dinner and overnight.

Ashnil Samburu Camp 

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner


DAY 5:-Samburu Game Reserve – Lake Nakuru National Park 

After breakfast you will proceed by road to Lake Nakuru National Park arriving at your camp in time for lunch.

There is time to relax after lunch before departing for an afternoon game drive in the park.

Lake Nakuru National Park is best known for its migrating flamingos and its large flocks of pelicans, however, recently the lake’s rising water levels has reduced the salinity of water in the lake thereby reducing algae, the main food for flamingoes.  When this happens the migrating flamingoes move to Lake Bogoria.  There are over 450 bird species at the lake and a thriving mammal population including buffalos, baboons, impalas, Rothschild giraffe, bush backs and waterbucks.  A rhino sanctuary was established to protect this highly endangered species. The parkland surrounding the Lake has acacia and euphorbia forests as well as areas of grassland and rocky cliffs.

Later in the evening you will return to your camp for dinner and overnight.

Lake Nakuru Lodge

This afternoon you will visit the traditional Maasai Manyatta for cultural experience.

An evening game drive will be conducted before you return back to the camp in the evening.

Masai Mara Game Reserve covers over 700 square miles of magnificent wilderness. It is the Africa 

of the imagination; endless reaches of acacia-dotted grasslands studded with hazy hills. Be on the lookout hoping to see Lions in large prides, Elephants, Buffalos, Zebras and numerous plain animals.

Mara Maisha Camp 

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner


DAY 7:-Masai Mara Game Reserve

This day will be spent game viewing in Kenya’s finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve in search of Africa’s Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. 

On clear days, the Masai Mara offers fantastic orange tinged sunset’s well-worth capturing on camera. The Masai Mara Game Reserve has incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is classical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife. Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see an abundance of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the wild plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common. The ultimate action here is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.

Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at extra cost.

The animals are set against breathtaking vistas of Mt Kilimanjaro, which makes an awesome backdrop to the small park. Aside from elephants, many plains animals are easy to spot. Fantastic photo opportunities are possible, and early mornings are best for clear views of Kilimanjaro. Amboseli offers great wildlife viewing, and four of the Big Five are present. Rhinos are absent, but big herds of elephants reliably move to and from the marshy swamps in the center of the park. Buffalo, wildebeestBurchell’s zebra and gazelle are all very common.
