8days Samburu, Sweetwaters, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara

Day 1 – Samburu Game Reserve

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 Uaso 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. Overnight at Samburu Sopa lodge or similar. Meal Plan {Breakfast}

 

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 Sopa lodge or similar. Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

 

Day 3 Samburu – Sweetwaters game Reserve

Today we travel to the exotic Sweetwaters Tented Camp or Porini Rhino Camp in the secluded heart of Ol Pejeta Ranch and Rhino Reserve. Here, these magnificent beasts are given sanctuary from those who would take their lives to sell their horns. Here too, the Jane Goodall Institute operates a remarkable Chimpanzee Sanctuary where we meet the primates face to- face. Our camp also overlooks one of the busiest waterholes in the area and offers elephant, giraffe and myriad plains game. This is Africa as Teddy Roosevelt saw it years ago when he led one of the first safaris to tour Africa in comfort and splendor. Our tents at Sweetwaters will remind us of this bygone era. Overnight at Sweetwaters Tented Camp or similar. Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

 

Day 4 Sweetwaters – LakeNakuruNational Park

Today 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 the Sarova Lion Hill Lodge or similar. Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

 

Day 5 LakeNakuru – Masai Mara Game reserve

This 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.

Overnighth at Sentrim Mara Game Camp or similar. Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

 

Day 6 & day 7 Discover Masai Mara

The search for great predators and perhaps even cubs continues today and tomorrow during extensive 'breezy'game runs. On the plains are enormous herds of grazing animals plus the elusive cheetah and leopard hiding amidst acacia boughs. During our 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 piognat experience. (Balloon Safari can be arranged at extra cost). Overnight at Sentrim Mara Game Camp or similar. Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

 

Day 8 Masai Mara - Nairobi

Enjoy early Breakfast at the Lodge. Checkout of the lodge and conduct a game drive en-route to Nairobi by road. Meal Plan {Breakfast}
