This safari begins with Samburu National Reserve a true wilderness and home to unique wildlife and plant life and onward continuation to The Aberdare National Park , an isolated range that forms the eastern wall of the rift valley and diverse topography with amazing views of wildlife night game viewing. Then proceed to the Lake Nakuru National Park, famous for its birdlife especially flamingos that form a pink hue across the lake. The climax is the Most famous Reserve in Kenya, The Masai Mara National Reserve.

Between July and October, when the great wildebeest migration is on in the Masai Mara , the Sensation is unparalled.
