Day 8: Nairobi - Samburu National Reserve

After a delicious breakfast at your hotel, it is time to check-out and set off on your scenic drive to the Samburu National Reserve, arriving in time for lunch. After lunch, there is little time to settle in or have a quick nap before you set off on the first game drive. Surrounded by interestingly shaped hills, you will fall in love with this region.

Your afternoon drive will usually have you back in camp by sun down, but it all depends on what enthralling sightings you come across. Look out for the Samburu special big five, which includes the beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, samburu ostrich, and gravy’s zebra, as well as the big cats, and everything else in between. You will spend the night at Sentrim Samburu Lodge.

Day 9: Samburu National Reserve

Start your day with an early morning wake-up call so that you never miss a moment of the action.

Day 11: Aberdare National Park - Lake Nakuru National Park

Your first glimpse of Lake Nakuru is almost unbelievable, as a sparkling, blue lake materializes before your eyes, its shoreline an explosion of cherry-blossom pink. These rosy hues are owed not to flowers, but to flamingos where millions of these blush-colored fowl line the coastline. An afternoon game drive introduces you to flamingos, and more than 400 bird species reside in Lake Nakuru National Park, which shares its lands with endangered Rothschild's giraffes, black rhinos, white rhinos, lions, buffaloes and baboons, among other incredible animals. You will spend the night at Sentrim Elementaita Lodge.

It has an incredible wildlife leave there and the region is cradle to a rich and colorful culture.

Late in the afternoon, you will find your hands latched to the vehicle's safety bar, as you bump out onto your first expedition into the Maasai bush lands. If the timing is right, you'll have the chance at a front-row seat to the eighth wonder of the world, the great wildebeest migration. For four months a year, millions of hulking gnu abandon the Tanzanian Serengeti to thunder over the plains of Masai Mara, in search of shelter and sustenance.

Thomson gazelles and zebras accompany the migration, infusing the region with big predators including cheetahs, lions, wild dogs, jackals, hyenas, and vultures. You will spend the night at Sentrim Mara Lodge.

Day 13 and 14: Masai Mara

You have two full days to discover the charms of the Masai Mara. There are a few options for you to consider: You could opt for an early morning game drive and return to the camp for breakfast. In this case, you will have a few hours of relaxation in camp before setting off again on a late afternoon drive. You can also treat yourself to a wonderful hot-air balloon excursion on one of the mornings. This will be followed by a bush breakfast and a leisurely drive back to camp with time to relax until the afternoon game drive.

Back at the camp, you can enjoy some quality time with your colleagues around the campfire, swooping your game viewing stories, sharing photos, and building lasting friendships. You will spend both nights at Sentrim Mara Lodge
