Our Luxury trips include indulgences that are extra on our Samburu Led and Expedition trips and they are guided by Kerry Glen or James Christian. The expense for organizing an exclusive luxury trip for a small party can discourage some. For this reason we have made up the following itinerary for those who would like to join others on a luxury trip and reduce the cost.

Day 1: Fairview, Nairobi

You will be met at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by a Karisia Driver and taken to the Fairview Hotel, a lovely gardened retreat within close proximity of all of Nairobi’s sights, fine restaurants and shopping areas.

Day 2: Nyasura

Your first camp is at the foot of some huge rock kopje’s. The local Laikipia Masai call these rocks Nayasura and stone chippings suggest that they have been used as a camp for millennia. We too will use the rocks starting with a refreshing lunch and short rest in our classic roomy safari tents. After lunch we will head out on a short walk looking for game and getting a feel for the country. As the sun begins to set we will find ourselves at the crest of Nayasura with drinks and bitings, watching the baboons come back to roost on the face of the rock.

Day 3: Nyarara

From Nayasura we will head out early after breakfast so to see as much game as possible on our walk north towards Nyarara Camp. Nyarara means Cheetah in Masai and the camp was given this name because of a large male that has been seen in the area. Along our walk we will cross large plains as well as mixed bush. Herds of Zebra, Oryx and Grant’s Gazelle predominate on the large plains with smaller numbers of Jackson’s Hartebeest and Thompson’s Gazelle. In the mixed bush we can find Dikdiks, Gerenuk, Impala and Lesser Kudu.

The pack camels with our camp will have made a more direct route than us and so they will have arrived before us and set up most of camp before our arrival. After lunch we rest and after tea when it has cooled down go for another walk in the evening.

Day 4: Tumaren Ewaso Camp

Today we will be heading down toward the Ewaso Nyiro River, which runs along the eastern edge of the Laikipia Plateau and then turns eastward toward Samburu National Reserve. Along the way we will be looking for Eland, Steinbuck, Giraffe, Waterbuck, Grevy’s Zebra as well as Elephants. When we arrive at the Ewaso Nyiro we may want to take a quick dip before lunch. After lunch, our rest and sundowners on a high rocky hillside we will return to our camp on the river for hot showers and dinner under the stars.

Day 5: Mkenya

In the morning you will get a wake up call and hot water in your basin. After breakfast we will set off crossing the Ewaso Nyiro River and continuing west. Our next camp is at the base of an enormous rocky hill with spectacular views in all directions. This is a favourite spot for Greater Kudu and if we are lucky we might find some around camp.

Day 6: Mpala Dam

We will continue walking west through excellent elephant and Grevy's Zebra country. Looking carefully for any of our local predators. Camp will be set at one of the best wildlife dams in the area. Besides excellent birdlife the evenining and mornings can be excellent for large game coming for a drink.

Day 7: Travel

After a farewell to the team and camels we will walk across the river up to the vehicle.
