Program

Day 1: Nairobi to Samburu National Reserve

You will be picked up from your hotel in Nairobi and will be met by the safari representative for a short safari briefing and introduction to your Kenya safari. You will then depart Nairobi heading north through the rich agricultural region with coffee, wheat, and horticulture farms among other plantations.

You will cross the equator at Nanyuki and proceed north before descending from the cool highlands into the wildlife rich northern savannah woodlands. Arrive at Samburu National Reserve in time for lunch and an afternoon game drive.

The Samburu Reserve is one of the lesser-known national parks but is nevertheless teeming with life. Situated alongside the Ewaso Nyiro River, there is plenty to attract wildlife from the surrounding savannah plains. The reserve is rich in wildlife with an abundance of rare northern specialist species, such as the Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, and the beisa oryx (also referred to as the Samburu Special Five).

Day 2: Samburu National Reserve

Spend the full day in Samburu, with morning and afternoon game viewing drives included. During the hot day, you can choose to visit the local communities living adjacent to this game reserve or relax by the swimming pool.

Day 3: Samburu to Ol Pejeta Conservancy

After breakfast, you will depart from Samburu with a game drive en-route, driving into the scenic Aberdare Ranges. You will arrive at the Ol Pejeta in time for lunch and afternoon rest. Ol Pejeta is East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary, the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees. You will have an early evening game drive around the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, and return to your camp in time for dinner.

Day 4: Ol Pejeta Conservancy to Lake Naivasha

After breakfast, depart from Ol Pejeta, driving into the scenic rift valley escarpment before finally checking into the Lake Naivasha in time for lunch and your afternoon game drive.

The Lake Naivasha ecosystem comprises of the freshwater lake, surrounded by mainly savannah grasslands and acacia forest. The park supports a wide ecological diversity of water birds being the major attractions of the area. The ecosystem also provides for different species of mammals, including the giraffe, hippo, and other small mammals.

Day 5: Lake Naivasha to Masai Mara National Reserve

You will have an early breakfast and depart your camp heading for the Maasai Mara National Reserve. You will drive into Maasai land, passing through the Kedong and Suswa plains, making a stopover at the Maasai town of Narok. Continue toward the Maasai Mara, arriving in time for lunch and an afternoon game drive.

This is probably one of Kenya’s most visited game reserve with an extraordinary density of animals, including the Big Five and many other varieties of plains game. The Mara River cuts through the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem giving life to the two game reserves, finally pouring out into the Lake Victoria.

Impressive and most notable is the wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle instinct led migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara in Kenya. This journey is coupled by numerous obstacles which makes it even more magnificent.

Day 6: Masai Mara National Reserve

Depending on the wildlife migration patterns and the weather, you could either opt for morning and evening game drives or alternatively venture out for a full day. Other optional activities on this day would be an early morning balloon safari over the Maasai Mara plains or a visit to the nearby traditional Masai communities.
