This morning we travel by road to Kenya’s northern frontier. Wild and rugged, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with its arid savannahs watered by the lovely Ewaso Nyiro River.
It is also one of Kenya’s most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to Grevy’s zebras and Beisa Oryxes. We also enjoy Larsens Tented Camp or Samburu Intrepids Camp, our luxurious hostelry set beneath a canopy of acacia trees along the banks of the river.Overnight at Samburu Sopa or Samburu Intrepids Camp

 

Day 2: Samburu Game Reserve
Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush by scanning the river from our tent’s veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand. Before the dew is off the grass, we’re off in pursuit of the elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs that thrive in the reserve’s grasslands and acacia woodlands.
And so the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation in our cozy camp.Overnight at Samburu Intrepids Camp

Day 3: Samburu – Drive to Aberdare National Park/Mt. Kenya (Forest Tree Lodge)
Our destination is the Aberdare National Park or Mt. Kenya National Park. We travel overland south crossing the equator to The Aberdare Country Club, nestled on the slopes of Mweiga Hill.
After lunch and high tea, set off for the Ark tree lodge, located in the forest on mountain slopes of the Aberdare Mountains at 7,000 feet. This outstanding lodge offers high altitude game viewing, including animals that are rarely encountered elsewhere: giant forest hog, bush pig, tree hyrax, large spotted genet, and the elusive bongo.
Wildlife can be observed from different levels – and from outside where you can see, hear and smell everything and inside where you can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy.
You can put in a request to be awakened during the night if your favorite animals show up. A herd of Elephants might be just feet away and if you are lucky, a Leopard or large male Lion might put in an appearance.Overnight at the Serena Mountain Forest Lodge

Day 4: Aberdare – Drive to Lake Nakuru National Park
We travel to the exotic Lake Nakuru National Park located in the Great Rift Valley. After lunch an exciting game run is planned for the afternoon. The game in this park is plentiful and the magnificent bird watching will make a devotee out of even the most reluctant.
The Park is a home to stunning flocks of lesser and Greater Flamingos, which literally turn the lakeshores in to a magnificent pink stretch. The bird life here is world renown and over 400 bird’s species exist here, White Pelicans, Plovers, Egrets and Marabou Stork.
 It is also one of the very few places in Africa to see the white Rhino and rare Rothschild Giraffe.Overnight at Lake Nakuru Lodge

Day 5: Lake Nakuru – Drive to Masai Mara Game Reserve
In the morning we drive through the dramatic Great Rift Valley to the Masai Mara National Reserve. This enormous Reserve is actually part of the vast Serengeti plains famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest’s migration and is home of the Big Five: Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino.
Lunch at our Lodge and relax before departing for the afternoon game run. The Mara Game Reserve–one of the greatest wildernesses of the world. Large mammals are varied, and easy to see.
Residents among the Park's are: Masai Giraffe, Buffalo, Eland and thousand of plain game including Impala, Zebra, Topi, both Thomson's and grants Gazelles.
Overnight at Mara Simba Lodge

Day 6 & Day 7: Discover Masai Mara Game Reserve
The search for great predators and perhaps even cubs continues during extensive game runs. On the plains are enormous herds of grazing animals and the elusive cheetah plus leopard hiding amidst acacia boughs.
During the stay we also have an optional opportunity to visit a village of the Masai people to witness the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. 
A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience.

Day 8: Masai Mara – Drive to Nairobi
This day we have an early morning game drive, return to lodge/camp for breakfast. Depart for Nairobi by road arriving mid afternoon.
