During the safari tour, you will be accommodated in three different places: Ashnil Samburu Camp, Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge, and Ilkeliani Camp.
Ashnil Samburu Camp sits in Buffalo Springs Game Reserve, which takes its name from an oasis of crystal clear water at the western end of the reserve. It is separated from Samburu National Reserve by Ewaso Nyiro River and is less hilly and dense yet equally very attractive.
Nestled in a river glade in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the area is a favorite for elephants coming to drink from the Talek River. The camp has been designed to combine the old traditional safari style with a modern and fresh feel. Ilkeliani Camp offers only 17 tents, each with a view of the plains and the wildlife action throughout the day. It is a permanent camp designed along eco-friendly principles. The ethos is to leave a minimum footprint on nature.
The well-equipped tents are stylish with en-suite bathroom. They are sited under its own cluster of shady indigenous trees. You will feel that you are out in the wilderness. The interiors are spacious and comfortable, featuring a front verandah with a day bed and canvas safari chairs. Home cooked meals combined with personal service contribute to an unforgettable safari experience.
Located on a range of hills that form the western limits of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, the lodge offers spectacular views over the vastness of Africa. The lodge also overlooks Lake Nakuru and its surrounding National Park, a paradise for bird watchers and wildlife lovers alike. Lake Nakuru National Park is mainly a wooded and bushy grassland with a wide ecological diversity and characteristic habitats that range from the lake waters to the escarpment and ridges.
On this safari tour, you will visit Samburu National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park, and Masai Mara National Reserve to see big five animals, experience birdwatching, and see annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra.
This safari tour will be held in three locations: Samburu National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park, and Masai Mara National Reserve.
Lake Nakuru National Park was created to protect the lake and its flocks of lesser flamingo, which are drawn to the algae that flourishes in the saline waters of the soda lake. The national park is home to hippos, black and white rhino, Rothschild giraffe, buffalo, and eland.
The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park. The image of acacia trees on an endless grassy plain epitomizes Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture, and the conversation needs go no further.
The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara is the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet with more than a million animals following the rains, not to mention large prides of lions, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles, and eland. Aside from traditional vehicle safaris, hot air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential and you can even do a horseback safari.
Samburu is remote, hot, and arid with rugged hills and undulating plains. Samburu’s life blood is the Ewaso Ngiro River and its riverine forests, which forms its boundary with the Buffalo Springs National Park. This is one of the few areas in Kenya where you can spot southern and northern dwelling species together, such as reticulated giraffe, the long necked gerenuk, Somali ostrich, and Grevy's Zebra.
During the tour, you will be served three daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can also try the local cuisine, which is also worth trying out, particularly Pilau-a chicken and rice dish, cabbage and rice, and the staple food in Kenya-Ugali, made from maze flour.
There are many restaurants can be found downtown and in the areas of Westlands and Hurlingham, but these areas are filled with tourists and places like Ayani, Olympic, Kibera, and other places have more authentic food. The most cuisines available are Indian, Brazilian, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, German, and French restaurants. Fast food restaurants, mostly by South African chains, are common in the larger urban areas.
Massage or other treatments can be booked at additional costs.
Please book your flight to arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) or Wilson Airport (WIL). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Tour Africa Safaris will pick you up from the airport. You can also take Matatus (shared minibus taxis) or take private taxis, which can also be hired for long distance journeys.
